Oregon Trail


Nuts for Ruts: Finding the Oregon Trail

This is a history-based caravan, covering a month of travel.  We will explore a number of significant places along the original Oregon Trail, from Independence, Missouri, to Oregon City, Oregon.

Following the path of the early pioneers we will cross the plains searching for the actual ruts the wagons left on their way west.  We will visit museums, historical sites, and wonderful places to meet and eat. 

Your kitty fee includes the opening and final banquet, commemorative patches and pins, all your camping fees, a number of meals along the way, and admission to many of the wonderful attractions we will visit as a group.
