Because you have expressed an interest in following the Lewis & Clark Trail with us - or are already signed up - we're sending this update to whet your appetite for the adventure ahead.
Minimum has been met
From the number of phone calls and inquiries we have been receiving, we know the excitement is mounting, so let me clarify right now that this departure is a definite "GO"! Time to book your flights and finish up your reading list. Please check your registration materials for arrival and departure times. Final payments are due June 19.
Some alert participants have noticed the absence of the iconic Museum of Westward Expansion in St. Louis on this year's itinerary. We apologize, but it has fallen victim to the major renovation of the Arch and surrounding downtown highway reconstruction, and is not scheduled to reopen until 2017. Over the years many changes have occurred along the trail and we have learned to adapt, seeking out new opportunities which in many instances have turned out to be even better than the original. Never fear; we have a bang-up replacement for the museum which we think you are REALLY going to enjoy!
Pre- and post-stays are available at $ 55 per night (double occupancy) and $110 per night (single occupancy), including airport transportation, free hot breakfast and (in St. Louis) nightly "Kickback" from 5:30 to 7:00, with free hot food & cold beverages. Both in St. Louis and Portland the hotel is located near the airport with easy access to public transportation. Please let us know if you would like to make a reservation for you.
Seriously considering this adventure, but need a roommate? We have one male and one female traveler who would like to talk to you! Please let us know if you are interested and we will facilitate an exchange of contact information so you can get acquainted.
If you haven't yet signed up for this once-in-a-lifetime journey, we'd love to have you join us. But don't delay. Bookings received between now and July 1 will be accepted only on a space available basis.
