The 706 & 806 are the the ones that just completed the 500 mile trip border to boarder and are leading us back across the Nebraska line and into Lyman.

And last but not least is our Man with the vision that started this, our leader, our creater of 9 days of fun, our guidance counselor, friend to all, and much, much more.

Nice coverage Bob. I wish I could have been there for the finish!

Thanks for posting the pictures. I tried to follow along everyday. Very interesting project. Can't imagine driving across Oregon on a tractor, I go from here to Joseph but at 75 not 15-20 mph. I did walk from the Eastern border of Oregon to Independence Oregon in 1976 for the Bicenntenial beside my team of oxen pulling a covered wagon but I was only 20 years old then too....James

I forgot about that til I heard it on the radio this week. KRVN was checking in with Chad on a regular basis.
