FACT – BLACK BEAUTY and I traveled to Proctorsville, Vermont, and accomplished our first “on the road” posting on April 10, 2011.
FACT – Since that day, in six years I have written 240 adventures and stories to share here – Averaging One Every Nine Days. But with mobility restricted in 2016, 102 days passed without your hearing from me.
FACT – In the six years of SHUNPIKING WITH RAY there are been 67,641 page views – 31 per day on the average.
FACT – August 30, 2015 there were 403 separate pages views – the most for any one day.
