After stopping the wagon for the day I went to go hunting. In the end I got lucky and got fifteen pounds of deer meat. That will add to the food supply which might turn out to be very important. Lets see if its worth a box of ammunition. Later he wagon train leader was called upon by a native american and he won a challenge and got us all twenty five dollars.
There has been a drought and it keeps getting harder and harder to find water. There is no water nearby and tragedy could arise if we don't find any. Thankfully we all had water barrels so there was no need to worry about the water problem. We had the chose of taking a ferry across a river or wading it. This time our wagon train made the smarter choice of paying for the ferry ride. Its cost forty five dollars.
Naqueda, my daughter, fell off the wagon and broke her leg. She is going to survive the injury but this is a big set back. I decided to go hunting but sadly came back empty handed, it was a big waste of ammo. We came across a deep river with a fast current and thought it would be a good idea to wade across it. Tragically my wagon flipped and I lost my dad. Today was most definitely the worst day of my life.
After that we came to the final and most difficult part of the journey. Our wagon train had to choose to either go back to a nearby town for the winter or go through an extremely dangerous snow pass and hope it hasn't been blocked up yet. The choice to go trough the snow pass was absolute suicide. We went up there anyway. It was too late, the path was blocked and we got snowed in. Its extremely cold, we were not prepared for this. I think we are all going to die...........
