    This is the start of a series of articles which are a good reference on the GORP site: GORP/Pony Express.

    I have ridden a portion of it, and probably the closest to the real thing that exists anywhere along the route today. It is at GPSXchange.

    I live near the west end, and my father was born and is buried near the east end. I've visited some posts along the way. I think it would take a lot of research and experimentation to piece together a route as close as possible to the real thing.

    Of course the route from St. Joseph, MO to Salt Lake City followed other well established trails.
