A GPS tracker in the Mochila takes YOU along on the Re-Ride!


Using the Two Maps below,

follow NPEA Members and their Horses as they Re-Ride History.

The Pony Express Re-Riders carry the mail as they travel 1,800 miles from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California.  The Pony Riders will travel day and night to make the 10 day trip.  There is a GPS (SPOT tracker) that is carried in the Mochila, which sends a “ping” to a satellite every five minutes.  This ping is then marked as a Pony Rider Icon on the larger NPS Map, below, for you to see the Re-Ride progress.

*GPS SPOT Map*

[This map is no longer functional, only working during the 10 days of the Re-Ride]

This first Map records the “ping” received by the satellite, directly from the Mochila that is on the Current Rider’s Horse.  Time is recorded in Pacific Time (PT).  This ping is then  recorded on the NPS map, the second one below, for you to see the whole Re-Ride.

this interactive map for you to follow the entire Re-Ride.]
