Oregon Trail Smore Project
Once we crossed the river on the fairy there was a gambling opportunity. Of courseI took the chance and gambled for the prize. I had to face other competitors from the other trains like Evan. We had to to leg lifts and keep them up in the air as long as possible. First to go out was Sophia and then Ellie. Then it was just me and evan left. Of course the indian missed judged and did not see Evans foot touch the ground so I lost a few seconds later. Although I lost are wagon train didn't lose anything.
After are hunting session we moved forward on the trail. suddenly we crossed three new trails which meant the trail we just took came to an end. The Indian said that the first trail was dangerous. He said the second trail was even more dangerous. So are wagon train decided to take the third trail which was safe and never been attacked by Indians. But sadly the trail was longer so it would take are train longer to get to the next trail.
When we were done with are second trail we lost a lot of time compared to the other wagon trains. Once we got to the Shyan river there was a fairy waiting for us but You could also forge the river and not have to pay 40 dollars. I decided to take the fairy and make sure I was safe and my family.We had to get rid of 10 pounds of weight from each family member so we could barricade ourselves and fight the Indians.
As we moved on from my sons death there was a landslide barricading the trail. Fortunately we packed good gear and are wagon train all had pick axes and shovels which made it take about and hour to clear the landslide. Are wagon train group had to get ride 100 pounds of weight so we could travel fast through the Hatis dessert. We had to make a decision if we went for the path straight away we could get to rich land. So my group went for the path straight to Oregon. Its freezing up here were all dying we got barricaded by the snow and were stuck HELP US PLEASE!
