Man rides mule from Minnesota to Wyoming

‘He rode his mule into town looking for work.

No, it wasn’t the opening scene of a Western movie. It was what Rod Maday did last week, ending a six-week odyssey from his hometown of Boy River, Minn.

“I’ve done about 1,500 miles and I’ve got the saddle sores to prove it,” he said.

Maday said he lost his driver’s license 10 years ago after he was accused in a hit-and-run, and was having a hard time finding work in Minnesota. He heard that Wyoming had plenty of jobs that paid well.

He set out with two mules. About a month ago, both mules got loose and one was hit by a car. It had to be euthanized.’
