On The Oregon Trail
Today I went hunting. I shot several times at a deer but it did not fall down. I soon realized that i was hitting 4 of my wagon teams water barrels. they do not have any water in them, nor can they hold any. I am very ashamed. One of our wagon members dropped his guns in the river so we cannot hunt with him unless he uses his knife which is an ineffective way to hunt. We come to a river and decide to ford it which means the oxen swim with us and the wagon floats. We did not make it across with all of our gear. I lost 150 Bulk weight units. We carry on through a danger pus pass but luckily make it through without harm
I run over and she says it was a false alarm. One less mouth to feed. I go hunting and catch 30 pounds of buffalo for my family. 30 or more Indian warriors attack us but we make it out unharmed. Other wagon trains in our caravan were harmed badly and lost members to arrows.

I have been getting sicker and sicker as time goes on from dehydration. The Next Day: I can barely move now I am weak and can barely right with this pencil. I cannot think straight. I Think I am going to die. I passed away shortly after finishing that sentence and was never able to meet my son or get to the west.
