Please note requested Air Dates listed below with each PSA. Thank
Now that youve heard the traffic report, imagine this: Facing an exploration across the unmapped American West, without On Star, cars, or roads, mostly pole-ling, dragging, or paddling a fifty-five foot keelboat and dugout canoes. Getting horses only to cross the Rockies, thanks to Sac-a-ja-way-ah. The snow wasnt her fault. Then back to water, using celestial navigation all the way. Thats the skill Meriwether Lewis was prepping for in Philadelphia and Lancaster two hundred years ago. Join like-minded folk in the Philadelphia Chapter (so named for Lewiss visit here in 1803) and get more out of the four year Bicentennial Commemoration where the expedition really began. Visit www.lewisandclarkphila.org . Be sure to spell out the word and .Run it all together until after phila when you add dot org.
