Journeys of Exploration & Discovery
Greetings!Explorers Lewis & Clark   


A funny thing happened while we were selecting which western adventures to include in our 2013 roster:  our travelers stepped forward to help us decide! 


We've had so many requests for the Lewis & Clark Trail (which frankly didn't generate as much interest after the Bicentennial was over) that we have included it - once again - on the schedule.  But we need your help:  to make this highly specialized Vanishing Trails Expedition go, we need a minimum of 15 passengers.  If you have always hankered to follow in the wake of the Corps of Discovery and learn  about this iconic American journey, send for your registration packet today!

Fields of Valor - Oct. 6-14
Teddy Roosvelt Legendary North Dakota 



Another program which has been included on next year's roster because of client requests is our brand new 7-day Legendary North Dakota, scheduled for July 21-27.  Following the paths of legenday North Dakotans Teddy Roosevelt, Lewis & Clark, Sacagawea, and George Armstrong Custer, the itinerary also explores legendary places like the world's only International Peace Garden, the Scandinavian heritage of the state, a bison herd with three genuine white buffalo, a Viking Ship which actually crossed the Atlantic (but from the New World to the Old) plus much more!

What If?
What if


Smallpox has been a scourge through much of human history, and few were more impacted than the Natives of North America.  But did you know that Meriwether Lewis  actually brought smallpox vaccine with him on his epic voyage with the intent of alleviating the suffering of his newfound friends?  What happened to that vaccine and the subsequent results are the subject of this What if recently added to our Explore the Old West history website.

Feel free to contact us with any questions at 800-888-8306.


We look forward to seeing you on the trail this season.


Happy Trails!
