In August Scott Schlepp of Ashley, N.D., will begin a 2,000-mile horse and wagon trip from border to border — from Rolla, N.D., to Brownsville, Texas. He expects the trip to take approximately five months.

Along the way, Schlepp plans to stop and give rides to elementary school students in his covered wagon pulled by two Belgian horses.

Schlepp is trying to raise money for the trip. Ten percent of the money raised will be donated to the American Cancer Society, and five percent will be donated to the Germans from Russia Tri-County Tourism Alliance. The remainder of the funds raised will be used to finance the journey.

Anyone interested in sponsoring the trip can contact Schlepp at 701-288-3759 or
