The Oregon Trail
The Day on the Oregon Trail
Traveling with friends and families with the Oregon trail.
One morning when we were walking me and my family, cousins and friends. One of my cousins got sick and my aunt was worried. Because he was only 3 years old. I only packed clothes, blankets, pillows and, little games or toys. My family did the same thing too, but with food, water, and supplies for our wagon. Then when it was September because it was just now October it started to rain all day in the afternoon. It started to get harder and harder for us. At least we were all safe. When we came up to a river my dad, uncle, and the rest of the men carried the little girls and women even me across the river. Some men had to help the animals, and the wagons and the Oregon trail. When we crossed the Missouri river to the Willamette river there was people falling out, and the river was too fast. But some people at least made it.
My Opinion on the Oregon Trail
My opinion of moving west
I would like to move west along the Oregon Trail because I would like to explore and not be left alone without nobody at my side. Like taking a journey to the west just keep having to walk walk break walk walk break. It might take maybe a couple of day’s or month’s. The benefit’s for moving west is good traveling, good people, making new homes, meeting new families and friends. Meeting even new people too! How exiting is that. Also if you run out of something you can ask your neighbor’s if you need anything.

The First Man
The first man to die of a gun accident on the Oregon Trail was John Shotwell. Hard to believe but true.
Lot's of people
A few dozen people tried to travel the Oregon Trail pushing fully loaded wheel barrel's rather than traveling in covered wagon's.''Did they make it''? No one know's for sure.
