Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How do we get to our overnight destination?
A. The James Shaull Wagon Train Foundation provides transportation for the over-night encampment area back to where the wagon train departs. In the morning at Clear Spring, MD there is a caravan from the starting point to take trucks and horse trailers to our over night location and a chartered bus will return wagoneers to the starting point in Clear Spring.

Q. Will there be water for my horses/mules along the way?
A. Yes, we have asked all of our sponsors to provide water whenever possible.

Q. Is there a cost to participate?
A. Yes, $10 to register. A registration form, and proof of liability insurance is required that coverage is effective in Maryland.

Q. Will there be someone to stay with my horse/wagon team when I transport my truck and trailer?
A. No, you must provide your own help to stay with your animals.
