Our next priortiy was to hunt. i used my gun but sadly did not get anything. My family managed to get threw with all the dried food that we brought. At the end of our exhausting day we ran into a gambler. he asked us if we wanted to trade. We accepted! We showed him our amazing strengths and we got rewarded $25!

Later on we came along a river. We restocked our water supply so we will never run out. We then had another choice to be made, pay $45 to cross the river safely, or don't pay and risk your life. I paid the $45. We safely crossed. Later in the day we hunted. It was very successful! we got 30 pounds of buffalo. At the end of the day we had to made a choice, what trail to take. We took Buffalo Grounds Trail.

We get to the start of the trail and start were we reached the river. We had to make another important choice, if we pay the ferry or go arose ourselves. I paid the $50 and crossed safely. Just when we feel safe we get attacked by native americans. We lost all our supplies. Thankfully, this horrible day goes to a end.

We arrive to our destination!!! sadly all the good land is taken, we have no food, and have no supplies. So we will not have great lives. :(
