A wagon train made up of about a dozen wagons was on its way to Casey County when it made an unexpected stop at MedStop Pharmacy last week.

"One of our guys had to get his medicine," explained teamster Charlie Brown.

"This is the first time we've done this particular trip," added wagon master Bobby Perry, who has been making similar wagon trips to points around Kentucky and adjoining areas for 30 years.

Perry said most of the wagoneers are Anderson County residents.

"We're truly roughing it this trip," said Patsy Chambers, from her perch in a red and white wagon driven by Ronnie Hume. "It will take us about six days."

Chambers, the only woman in the group, said the wagon trips are her favorite type of entertainment.

"There's nothing I don't enjoy about it," she said. "I prefer this over any kind of vacation."
