John Lynn’s America: Coast to Coast – Part 1

November 3 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

America Coast to Coast Part 1: Atlantic Ocean to Mississippi River

Join world traveler John Lynn as he discusses his Atlantic Ocean to Mississippi River Coast-to-Coast route part 1 completed in nine stages. 4000 Miles across 15 States by Foot, Bicycle, and Canoe!

The hiking, biking and canoeing trips that he took over the last 30 years on portions of historic trails and rivers across the country add up to a Coast-to-Coast travel. Those travels have included biking the American Discovery Trail in 2013, hiking Cumberland Road in 2002 and canoeing the Ohio River in 2004.

John’s journeys link Cape Henlopen, Delaware to Cannon Beach, Oregon. His picture and lecture presentation includes his visits to portions of the American Discovery Trail, the C & O Canal Towpath, the Cumberland Road, the Ohio River, the Mississippi River, the KATY Trail, the Santa Fe Trail, the Oregon Trail, and the Lewis & Clark Trail!
