    In September of 2009, David made the trip for the reenactment of the Meriwether Lewis 1809 Expedition took place from St. Louis to Memphis. The trip of about 400 miles down the Mississippi River was made on a replica flatboat. It took 21 days with no means of power, no motors or generators, we just had oars and guided our way down. The Flatboat is on the boat ramp at Mud Island in Memphis, currently and then will become part of the permanent exhibition in the museum in spring of 2010.
