Leaving Sacramento Wednesday, Pony Express riders will again carry the mail with a re-ride to St. Joe, arriving June 30th.
The route will be over the Pony Express National Historic Trail, a component of the National Trails System. 2018 marks the 50th anniversary for the National Trail System, and the event will also celebrate its anniversary and accomplishments. Around 600 riders will take part in the ten-day re-ride, carrying commemorative letters.
The route will pass into southeast Nebraska next Friday, June 29th, crossing the Nebraska/Kansas state line around 11 p.m. and will change riders at the Hollenberg Station near Hanover and the Home station at Marysville after midnight.
