The Book "The Lewis and Clark Trail, Today" replaces all of our previous CD's.
If you live in the WA area, you live in one of the best ride areas of the L&C Trail...from Astoria, OR over to Missoula, Montana is my favorite part of the trail, especially the Lolo Motoring Hwy. My favorite find in your area is a cave where Sgt Ordway and Colter caught 3 infant bear cubs and spent the day playing with them...there is a marker there now....but way off the beaten path and real hard to find.
The CD Book is sold exclusively at Lewis and Clark better bookstores & museums (like at Cape Disappointment in WA) but sold here on AdvRider at a discounted price.
In my case when I left Astoria (following the return journey) my GPS lead me to each campsite all the way back over the Lolo Trail. GPS coordinates came directly from an interpretation of William Clark's measurements of mileage from campsite to campsite and his writing down of latitude as they traveled. I'd estimate that 95% of the GPS coordinates are very accurate and the other 5% are my interpretation of their description of their campsites in the "Lewis and Clark Journals" that was published in 1809.
The GPS coordinates took three of us 2 1/2 years to complete and is the only such publication. You do need to download EasyGPS (free) to export the GPS file to a GPS unit.
There are currently over 2,000 of the CD books in circulation and at a least 500 were shipped to AdvRiders, professional photographers, and RV enthusiast that are using our GPS files to travel all or parts of the Lewis & Clark Trail.
