PORTLAND, Ore. -- Drivers did a double take as they passed by a man on horseback on the shoulder along the Sunset Highway. Is it even legal you might ask? Yes, because he's doing it in sections that allow non-motorized vehicles.
Doc Mishler says it's not about him. The 78-year-old plans to travel across the country on horseback to call attention to child hunger.
Mishler says we can stop it. He points to the Catholic church, saying it would be so easy if the Pope would sell off the property not being used and give the money to the poor. He even mentions getting rid of the Vatican and calls for other churches to follow suit by soliciting for donations.
"It can be done. We can feed every starving child in the world. Let's start right here in the United States with over 10 million children dying of hunger or related causes," Mishler says.
With three horses, he traveled Highway 26 from Murray to Cedar Hills and from the Zoo to Jefferson Street exits. Now he's headed for the East Coast, but exactly how he'll get from here to there remains a mystery
