I had the pleasure of driving for the Lewis & Clark Expedition (L&C) from July 30, 2012 to August 15, 2012. We started out in St. Louis, MO and ended up in Portland, OR. It was quite the adventure. I learned a lot about L&C that I didn't know. Ok, well, I probably learned in High School, however, most likely didn't pay attention. As you grow older, you appreciate the history of this fine nation. I really enjoyed this trip.

We traveled through 11 States. (IL, MO, KS, IA, NE, SD, ND, MT, ID, WA, OR). We traveled on the off roads (non-interstate) that travel next to the river in all the states.

Total mileage driven with the group was 3,282 miles.
