This module took us across central USA, from St Joseph Missouri to California. Highlights along the route were Scotts Bluff National Monument, Nebraska, and Independence Rock, Wyoming. Following the route (by car - let alone by wagon!) is a lengthy and exciting adventure.
The wagon re-enactment sequence was filmed south of Rawlings, Wyoming, on land that's controlled by the Bureau of Land Management. We travelled at the invitation of Ben Kern, the train leader, and Candy Moulton, a journalist who specialises in wagon train history. An unforgettable experience.
