Take Us Along Winner

Nate Ross, Tech Sgt., USAF

Nate Ross, Tech Sgt., USAF, of Great Falls, Mont., is this week's Take Us Along winner. His sons, Lucas and Nathan took a copy of West Ohio Auto & RV along as they explored the Lewis and Clark National Historical Trail Interpretive Center in Great Falls. They are shown at the sign with a copy of the Ohio magazine.

Ross writes that we first saw Lucas and Nathan over three years ago when they took West Ohio Auto & RV along to North Pole Alaska. Ross said he always looks forward to receiving copies of West Ohio Auto & RV from his hometown of Fremont, Ohio. Meriweather Lewis and William Clark will be remembered for traveling across the western part of the United States in 1804 in an expedition commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the land of the Louisiana Purchase. At the center, visitors can relive the expedition's 8,000-mile journey. Besides numerous displays, visitors can see two introductory videos. The center is managed by the USDA Forest Service. The center's mission is to give visitors a sense of Jefferson's vision for expanding America to the uncharted west.
