Their dad was a cowboy who began working at age 11 riding on a 500 mile cattle drive,

"Louis Van "Bud" Abernathy (December 17, 1899 – March 6, 1979) and Temple Reeves "Temp" Abernathy (March 25, 1904 – December 10, 1986) were children from Oklahoma who, without adult supervision, took several cross-country trips. On one trip they rode on horseback from Oklahoma to Manhattan in 1910 when they were 10 and 6 years old.[1]"

Really goes to show what you can do if you set your mind to it if you make a plan as well.

Sending this to a mom who won't let her 11-year-old ride his bike six blocks to McDonald's!



I should find a way to do this hahaha
