Episode 118 - History Expeditions Team and the 2024 Snowshow Thompson Expedition

3/15/2024
The History Expeditions team of Bob Crowley, Tim Twietmeyer, Elke Reimer, Jennifer Hemmen and Hal Hall sat down with us shortly after completing their epic trek from Placerville, CA to Genoa, NV over the course of 5 days. The 2024 expedition they chose was a commemoration of the incredible efforts of John "Snowshoe" Thompson, a legendary figure of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California in the mid-1800s. Snowshoe spent 20 years carrying mail and supplies over the mountains under his own power in all conditions, using all of his skills to navigate and travel by foot and 10 foot long, heavy skis. Even after such dedication, he was never paid for his service to the country. The team researched his story and route meticulously, and only a short time after a historic Tahoe snowfall, they embarked on another meaningful journey that connected them with community members from all walks of life along the way until they reached their ultimate destination across the mountains. Join us for all of the details and stories of the trip, both the physical and emotional, all of the insights and connections made along the way!
