Additional Information:
Enjoy the re-creation of a mid-1800s frontiersman’s experience. Inspired by Kit Carson and the US Cavalry, Fred Thrall accomplished a three-week, mostly-solo and unsupported horseback ride across some of the most remote open range in the continental U.S. He rode along a portion of the Oregon Trail, following original ruts in the prairie much of the way.
