Backward planning is a planning method that starts with a future end point to be reached and works backward to find out how to get to it. Backward planning is especially useful in planning for a future that needs to be reached by a specific scheduled time frame or date.

In backward planning, once you decide when you want a certain future to become a reality (for example a scheduled meeting), a list is made of all the tasks that must be accomplished along the pathway to the desired future.

Include such things, for example, as getting the people needed involved, accommodations, resources needed, publicity, design, production, and all other required tasks. Using a calendar, start with the date you want to achieve the future being planned, then work backward with each successive task until you finish the plan with the first task to be accomplished.

By planning backward before you start forward actions, one gets a workable schedule and runs into less chance that a particular task component will be overlooked. Thus, through a careful backward pre-planning process, one is more likely to arrive at the desired futurePosted by Picasa

Monticello Ferry Company Kaw Valley Heritage (5o15pm)

The Tiblow Ferry, first established about 1835 by Tiblow, a Delaware Indian, was located at the site of the present day Bonner Springs.

In 1863 it was chartered by the Monticello Ferry Company, the incorporators being Stephen S. Start, (recorded in some history books as Stuart, which is incorrect), Jacob Trembly, Samuel Garrett, Uriah Garrett of Monitcello. Capital stock of the company was $5,000 divided into shares.

The ferry was operated for many years by Henry Tiblow, son of the above mentioned Tiblow, and has always been referred to as the Tiblow Ferry.
It was located on the early trail between Leavenworth and Paola.

After crossing to the south side of the Kaw River the trail proceeded south easterly toward Monticello, passing through present Greenview Ridge subdivision, and passed a spring and overnight camp site
on the old Garrett farm near 47 th and K7.

From there the trail passed through what is now the Woodsonia subdivision and on through Monticello and Olathe , where it connected with the Santa Fe Trail . At Monticello it connected with the Westport to Lawrence Road taking many travelers and their covered wagons to Oregon.

In 1869 Thomas Dunfree and W.B. White were issued a license to operate a ferry at Tiblow Station. In November 1870 the town of Tiblow was platted and a few years later with arrival of the railroad the name was changed to Bonner Springs.

Note: The "Rimrock Trail" (Red Arrow) is under the stewardship of the Theodore Naish Scout Reservation and sustained by the Heart of America Council Boy Scouts of America (HOAC-BSA) ... Posted by Picasa
