On Saturday, April 8th 2000, Richard Bennett of Cambridge Massachusetts embarked from Wood River, Illinois on an expedition retracing the route which Lewis and Clark took in 1804-1805. As he kayaks and hikes this route through what was once the Louisiana Territory, Mr. Bennett will document, through photographs and journal entries, some of the historical and ecological changes which have taken place since Lewis and Clark first ventured westward. This website will chronicle Mr. Bennett's journey as it happens. What is he thinking!!! Find out why Richard is on this expedition by clicking here.
