A native american approaches the wagon he gives us a choice to gamble or not and we decide to gamble. We gambled and won, It was a risky move but it all worked out in the end. We got $25 each and got to rest, After a long day it was well worth the gamble and the rest was much needed.
Everyone in my train decides to hunt but I however do not hunt. Our wagon has to make a big decision but i had no say. After a not very exiting day our wagon gets to rest again. I fear for my family's life on this trail. I do not think everyone will make it and it scares me.
We were trying to outrun some Native Americans and i got shot in the arm. Then we decide to take the longer trail for it is safer. We have to turn back and follow the other wagon trains. Then we take a rest after a long day of traveling.
