Preparing for the Lewis and Clark Trail by Water

As everyone knows, part of the Lewis and Clark trail set by both explorers had included travel by water, mainly along the Mississippi River. You can relive this part of the journey with a boating adventure. Just make sure you have all the equipment and training necessary for this type of activity. Last but not the least, be sure that you pack several changes of dry clothing. It’s sure to keep you in better health – and spirits – during unexpected bouts of rain. Bring waterproof casing as well for your mobile phone and other electronic devices you’ll take with you during the trip.
