Retracing Lewis & Clark's Expedition...On a Cereal Box-- Part 3

How to take a road trip and not leave the comfort of your breakfast table and to keep a few more bucks out of the pockets of Big Oil. $10,7 billion profit in JUST ONE QUARTER!! Come on you GRBS!!

A map accompanies the back of the box showing the route and states. That would be Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Washington and Oregon.

Some more insights:

LEWIS' JOURNAL: Lewis kept a daily journal in which he recorded hundreds of plants, animals, flowers, seeds and it became an important contribution to the scientific community for years to come.

Plus, he gathered these items and sent many back to Washington DC.

Several others in the Corps of Discovery also kept journals. Some of them used very creative spellings.

Plus, the Corps had to give places names as they went for future use.
