Riding Through History on the Lewis and Clark Trail

By Mark Gochman

In 1805 Lewis and Clark led their Corps of Discovery on the search for a water route across North America. Over 200 years later, one section of the route they took, the Lolo Trail in north central Idaho, remains almost exactly as it was when Lewis and Clark first made their historic trek.


Ride the Historic Florida Cracker Trail!

From the 1820's through the 1930's, when you could drive cattle across the state of Florida without crossing a fence, cow hunters gathered marketable cattle in Fort Pierce and drove them west for 130 miles to a port near the mouth of Tampa Bay. The cattle were loaded onto ships, bound for Cuba and the Caribbean, and the cow men returned home with saddlebags full of gold coins. These cow hunters found that using whips and dogs to move the sly cattle was more effective than the lariats used out west because of Florida's unique terrain. They became known as Florida "Crackers," since the crack of the long whip in the air was what moved the cattle and signaled other cow hunters.
