The Great Goat Road Rally of 2011

A couple of weeks ago I went to NYC with 12 goats, 12 college students, 1 professor, and 1 intrepid reporter - Melissa Pasanen, who was on assignment for the Burlington Free Press.

Melissa's article about the road trip came out yesterday, and what an awesome article it is - the Sunday Feature, with 5 full pages of story and photos.

Here's an excerpt:

Just a few blocks from the live market on White Plains Road under the elevated subway tracks, the smoky scent of charcoal filled everyone's nostrils, and a stoplight halted the van conveniently beside a large barbecue rig parked just off the corner of 234th Street.

Within seconds, Patterson and a few students had jumped out with one of the goat carcasses...

If you live in VT, try to find a print copy of the Free Press - otherwise the article is available online for a limited time here:
