Lewis & Clark Caravan
Just 216 years ago, Captains Lewis and Clark led 44 intrepid explorers from St Louis westward across our unexplored continent to the Pacific Ocean. 44 intrepid NKK members (22 RV’s) will also journey west from St Louis, following the travels of the original Lewis & Clark “Corps of Discovery”. Our route will take us up the Missouri River, through the Dakotas, to western Montana, across the Bitterroot Mountains, and down the Columbia River to the Pacific Ocean, following the route the Corps traveled in 1804 – 1805. Roughly 3,000 miles and seven (7) weeks, we will arrive at the Pacific Coast on September 14.
We plan to explore historic forts, a few special museums, the Gates of the Mountains, Lemhi Pass, enjoy a historic reenactment, a pitchfork fondue and outdoor musical, and visit the two most historic locations of the Corp’s original journey. While the theme of our Caravan is the history of the Lewis & Clark expedition, we are planning some great modern adventures along the way, including two riverboat cruises, a few bus and trolley tours, and a jet boat trip up Hells Canyon. There will be time for exploring on your own, including a National Battlefield, National Parks, the National Bison Range, several state capitals, the Garden of 1000 Buddhas, the Smoke jumpers museum, some great golf and swimming options, and a fantastic bicycle trail (imagine 17 miles downhill through tunnels & across trestles, with a bus ride back to the top!).
While we will be visiting 17 RV Parks during our seven (7) weeks together, we have reserved parks such that we have no one night stays, a few two and three night stays, and six – four night stays at some great parks across the West. The Caravan will be led by Jeff & Kaynell Zeman.
