Caulk your wagon and join us for a virtual voyage along the Oregon Trail! We’re hosting an interactive storytelling session, where we’ll discover the secret stories of the legendary route!
During this one-hour virtual tour of the actual Oregon Trail route’s historic sites, you’ll unearth forgotten stories, meet unexpected characters, and discover lost secrets of the famous journey. Unlike the pioneers of yore, or the players from the popular game (also of yore), you don’t have to go it alone. You’ll have expert hosts Michael Salgarolo and Kylie Holloway (Ride or Die: Oregon Trail Live) to lead you down the right pathways, and avoid the deepest pitfalls.
Grab your warmest flannel, tie down your medicinal whiskey, and saddle up (on your couch) for the adventure of a lifetime!
