Traveling horseback across continents

Mitchell County- If you fly from Argentina to Georgia, it's about an 8 or 9 hour trip.

On horseback, try three years. Eduardo Discoli knows that from experience.

Tuesday night, he's resting in Mitchell County on his way from Buenos Aires to New York recreating what another Argentinean did 80 years ago.

He's been riding for three years and he says people in the United States have been extremely helpful.

"In the road, with water, with feed for the horses, with money, with place, with feed, with feed for me," Discoli said.

Albany city leaders are planning a welcome ceremony for Discoli when he arrives tomorrow.
