    Janice was going over the newspapers that had piled up while we were gone,
    and noticed an article on Lewis and Clark that, though it doesn't answer any of
    the questions you raised, will probably be usefull. Here are the more
    interesting parts:
    >VANCOUVER, Washington—
    Where parts of the Missouri River run nearly strait today it corkscrewed 200
    years ago. so much so that Lewis and Clark at least once had to  coax their
    boats up 36 miles of it to get 1200 feet rarther west.
        Months later, on the way home, William Clark commented that the river
    looked nothin like it did
