Tony Commendatore, Aegis Insurance Markets, on the Pony Express
CATT Member Tony Commendatore, Managing Partner of Aegis Insurance Markets and Truckee Town Council Member, achieved a personal goal last summer, participating in the Pony Express Re-Ride. Each June, the National Pony Express Association members recreate the Pony Express in a Commemorative Re-Ride over a 10-day period. Letters are carried in a mochila over the original trail. The 1,966 mile, eight-state event is conducted 24 hours a day until the mail is delivered to its destination. Over 750 riders participate and around 1,000 letters are mailed each year. Tony says, "I was able to ride two legs of the ride in Nevada. My first leg was at 3 o'clock in the morning under a full moon riding through the desert. The second leg was later in the day through the streets of Carson City. It was truly an unforgettable experience."
