This looks fantastic!  I like how you find interesting history and experience it close up.  I ran across this report last night while talking with Birdman, and ordered the book.  My wife is interested too, so maybe some of this could be in a 4x4 pickup instead of my DS bike.
Thank you for the mass of RR's and history lessons over the years.  I've had several virtual adventures and history lessons from you while sitting on the couch.  I hope to do some of this adventure in person.

Jeff,  that is as nice a complement I have ever received about a report.  Thank you.

The book, "West Like Lightning" is a fantastic read with so much good history.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
