Party started from DB's house 5/69. Three other men as "camp-keepers -- Joseph Holden, James Mooney, William Cool (or Cooley). Employees of the others. These men would prepare the skins the others would bring in. All mounted; rations to last until hunting grounds, then living off the country. Followed a hunter's trace to Cumberland Gap where they picked up the Warriors' Path. Moved slowly, hunting on the way. No Indian sign. 6/7 reached Station Camp Creek -- so called because there they built their base camp. Constructed a more permanent shelter. DB pushed ahead of the others to the summit of Big Hill, the height of land between the Rockcastle and Kentucky Rivers. Looked down into the rich, level land of Kentucky. Returned to camp. DB and Findley out to explore ahead of the party after DB's return. Hunted in pairs. Deerskins back to Station Camp after several days in the forest (BAKELESS:48-9) KENTUCKEXPLORE2
