Day 1

I have 7 members in my family and we are traveling on the Oregon Trail to get to our final destination. I have a wife and two children, one boy and one girl. I have a brother who is taking his wife and only child just 2 months old on the trail.
On the first day we have the option to forge the river our selves or to take a ferry for 25 dollars. I currently have 550 dollars so I pay for the ferry and we safely cross the Missouri river. Later that day we decide to hunt for some food. Luckily we hunted 15 pounds of deer.
Then we gambled and lost all our ammunition.

Day 2

On day 2 we come across a snake in our path and our horse tries to get past the snake. Thankfully the horse makes his way past the snake. Later we reach another lake. We decide to refill our barrels and pay 45 dollars to safely cross the river by ferry. We then decide to go hunting again and we successfully collect 30 pounds of buffalo.

Day 3

On day 3 we had the option to turn back, but we try our luck and continue on our trail.
Sadly a tragedy happens and my brothers son dies because he fell off the wagon and was ran over by the wheel. Then we must pay 50 dollars to cross the river by ferry.

Day 4

We decide to take the canyon path which was one of the very risky ones. Sadly we lose almost half our supplies. Then we take snow path which was a very risky path. Then we are challenged by opponents to a competition. We lose and we all convert to cannibalism and die.
