Sam Hopkins-Hubbard is taking a leave from his job as city councilor in Milton-Freewater to prepare for a trip across America on horseback. He’s also getting his employees ready to run Sam’s Corner Market without him this spring. He says he plans to start his journey in April.
In addition to his horses and necessary supplies, Hopkins-Hubbard plans to bring along a patriotic speech he’d like to share with his fellow Americans. He also plans to do a lot of listening. “I want to knock on doors, meet who I meet and gather stories and write a book about people who I meet,” he explains. He also plans to document his journey on social media thanks to a specially designed pack that will use solar power to keep his phone and laptop charged.
