Oregon Trail

Journal Entries


My name is Octavious jr. and I am a blacksmith from Philadelphia. I hope when I get to Oregon to open my own blacksmith shop. I have a wife, 17 year old son, a 10 year old daughter, 4 year old son, and a 5 month old baby. Their names are Ladasha, Jamal, Ladasha jr., Octavious the 3rd, and Ladasha the 3rd. With me on my journey i have $400 and I can hold 1,000 BWUs in my wagon. We have picked the best possible supplies and we packed as much as we could fit.

day 1

Day 1 went by pretty smoothly until we got to a river. We had two choices either take the fairy or cross the river freely. My family had a long discussion about this and we came to the conclusion that we should take the fairy. The fairy costs $25 to take. So now i have $375.

Then after traveling on the trail for a bit longer we got a chance to hunt. We decided to take this opportunity and hunt. To hunt we had to use one ammunition box. When it was time to hunt we got lucking and caught 15 pounds of deer.
