    In his recollection, Young traces his route from Olympia, to Longmire at the head of Yelm Prairie, to the Machell Prairie, to the Nisqually River to his camp. He also provides a table with his estimated distances from point to point. Young states, "I have copied these notes out from memory. I think they will be found correct. A person or persons wishing to make the trip as comfortably as possible, should be provided with a pack animal for every three persons, a sure footed saddle animal for every persons, at least three weeks provision. Two pairs of blankets for every two persons, clothing of stout material, not too heavy, a man to take care of the animals and look after the camp, and upon no consideration should persons venture on the trip without a competent guide.". less
