Description

The Pony Express ran from April 1860 to November 1861 carrying mail almost 2000 miles from St. Joseph, MO to Sacramento, CA. Every year since the mid 1960s the National Pony Express Association puts on a re-ride involving over 500 riders and 155 stations, including Friday's Station in Lake Tahoe, NV (at the site of what is now Harrah's.) This video features interviews with Davey "Doc" Wiser, the rider for the Lake Tahoe to Placerville leg of this year's re-enactment as well as Rich Tatman, president of the California division of the National Pony Express Association as well as the handoff of the mochilla containing this year's commemorative mail.
