I like the story. I just wanted you to know that I visited the page. I wish I could contribute, but I don't really have much to add - except -- good luck!

Hi, Bob!

Congrats on a fabulous (hi-tech) idea to accompany every step of the way of the Great Western Trail drive!

I've been thinking about ways to try and involve my 2nd year EFLers and maybe it's best through listening to some of the audio files, even if I have to transcribe them so they can follow more easily, or by using the posts of youngsters about the early trail. It would be great if kids could also send audio files.

We don't have any similar tradition in Portugal, only as seafarers all over the world. Who knows, maybe I can try to make a link somewhere. I promise to keep on thinking about it!

An idea just came to mind: I think it would be interesting to have an interactive map of the trail that would pinpoint the daily location of the cattle drivers: day 1, day 2, etc. Think that's possible?

(Enthusiastic!!!) Teresa
