Following the Oregon Trail Thu, 07/20/06 4:11 PM (permalink)
I have been following a trip log that I think is great. It follows the route of the pioneers along the Oregon Trail. It is not in a car, but rather a Citabria, a 2 place, tube and fabric airplane. The author did eat some good roadfood along the way, and the pictures are amazing. Enjoy!! http://www.aircobratech.com/Bill/OregonTrail/OT-PreFlight.html It is a trip of a lifetime, and something that I have long wanted to do. There must be a hundred pictures, so be warned, if you are a geography nut like me, you will spend over an hour with Bill.

    Thanks for the link. The Oregon Trail has always been a fascinating topic to me.

        I happened to hear an episode of this radio series yesterday.

        It was very interesting.

        EDIT: So much so, that after exploring the link myself, I bought the Audible.com files of all 13 hours (a decent deal at $9.95).

          We have roadtripped about 95% of both the Lewis & Clark Trail/road and the Oregon Trail over the years. It always amazes me to see the 'visual' traces of the Oregon Trail in the places where that is possible.
          Our October Trip this year will follow parts of both trails again to renew of feelings for the ordeals the pioneers and early explorers endured during their travels.

            The Lewis and Clark part really interested me. I spent the night a few years ago in Lewiston, Idaho. Their adventure is one that will probably never be achieved in the USA. Those guys had fun, adventure, drama and probably some other things we will never know about. I wish I could spell the Indian lady who accompanied them and probably led to their success was very interesting also.

              Sadly, the link seems to be down. It was great while it lasted. I went back again and again. I am not a tech guy, but it must have taken a lot of computer power to store and transmit hundreds of pictures.
