Comancheria Road Trips

Michael has a BA in History & American Studies and an MSc in American History from the University of Edinburgh. He comes from a proud military family and has spent most of his career as an educator in the Middle East and Asia. His passion is travel, and he seizes any opportunity to share his experiences in the most immersive way possible, whether at sea or on the land.

Fort Tours covers America but is focused on the Southern Plains. The Santa Fe Trail from Boone's Lick on the Missouri to the Rocky Mountains forms the northern border and the National Park Service has provided an engaging driving tour.

It seems appropriate that America's favorite Cowboy/Indian, Will Rogers, did a hitch at Booneville's (Boone' s Lick)Kemper Military School, established in 1844 to better educate the young princes of the prairie to assume their role in America's manifest destiny. The western border is formed by the Rio Grande River and the ancient Camino Real is another National Park drive worth taking. Details about the remaining recommended road trips can be found on our maps page.
