Reports from the Trail: Stories
FROM: Dan McClenahan
I believe that when the riders crossed under the overpass of I25 (North of Casper) they were at the very northernmost part of the re-ride trail. Also, at midnight last night they were at the highest elevation of the trail. The highest elevation of the original trail is between Rock Creek and Strawberry Creek. (South and East of Atlantic City).

They were staying in the campground and had stayed up to meet us and watch the exchange., Continue Reading
CENTRAL WYOMING GROUP
FROM: RANDY THOROUGHMAN
The central area of Wyoming got the mail through to Jeffery City. I loved being with all of the riders. We had some good riders this year. The girls this year were exceptional. Having Rick Alt did not hurt us either. It was fun for all of us. We reached Jeffery City by 6:00 A.M. Took a day to recoup but now I’m back to normal. Abbigail was Abbigail. I saved her for the highway and Martins Cove all in the dark. She gave me everything I asked for. “SPEED, Continue Reading
Ride by Farson, Wyoming
FROM: Janet Hartford
Had great weather and awesome rides just west of Farson, MM 114 to 112. The cut-across road between the La Barge Hwy and Granger that was the best! Dirt, no bottles to dodge, just one badger hole… in the road! Is amazing that we ride the same trail as the Pony Express, Oregon Trail, Mormon Trail, and California Trail!
