From Canada to Mexico by Mule

Bernie Harberts was featured in our book Tiny Homes (pp. 188-89). He traveled from Canada to Mexico for 14 months in a 21-square-foot (floor area) wagon pulled by a mule. Here is a letter we just received from him.

Howdy Lloyd,

Many mule miles, no letters…

You featured mule Polly and her wagon in your Tiny Homes- Simple Shelter book.

That story continues.

What I never really said much about is that I filmed that 14-month voyage across America. That voyage is now the “Lost Sea Expedition” TV series. The site and official trailer are at: https://lostseaexpedition.com

I’ve attached some photos for you. I’d love to share the story and news with your blog readers.

Hell, I know you’re busy. You write you could use a clone. No worries. I’ll write the content for you. Just tell me what would work for you (short article, picture essay, blog post, etc).

Hope you and the hummers are well. You and I have Lived for we know the Jubilation of a thawed hummer flying from our hands!

Keep groovin’

Bernie Harberts
