Dillards Take The Oregon Trail: Day 2

We road tripped from Arkansas to Oregon (less than 100 miles difference in distance than the actual, historic Oregon Trail)! It took us 3 days to get there (much better than the 4 months or so the pioneers had to endure)! Once in Oregon, we visited lots of friends and saw many places, from Portland to the Seaside & Newport coasts, including Astoria, Eugene and Bend! Then we made the 3 day trek back home, stopping on the way to see some of the actual wagon tracks left by those who took the original Oregon Trail many years ago!

This video captures day 2 of our trip from Greeley, Colorado to Boise, ID. Day 2 ended up being a longer day than we expected because we left Greeley, CO, we stopped in town to try and find Derick’s biological grandmother’s grave! (His mom was adopted.) It proved to be more challenging than we anticipated, but the excitement wasn’t over yet! We found addresses for a couple houses that belonged to her family too!

More videos to come soon!
