Journey to South Pass- Oregon Freedom

After leaving Fort Laramie your wagon begins the steady climb into the Rocky Mountains.  The steep climb is a great strain on your wagon’s animal team.

If your wagon load is greater than 2,000 pounds, then for the next 260 miles, your wagon can travel only five miles per day with oxen teams or ten miles a day with mules. 

Calculate how many days you have traveled and subtract the appropriate amount of food.

  1. I think we should leave the harmonica because we do not need it and all it dose is make sound that is why I think we do not need it.

  2. I think we should leave the harmonica because it is just for entertainment and we don’t need it to live.

  3. I think that we should leave more than one thing behind. The reason why I think we should leave more than one thing is because we have desided that we should buy a riffle. we should leave things that we do not need to live.

  4. I also think we should leave the harmonica because it doesn’t really help us on the Oregon trail. Also its not food and we are in need of food so I think we should get ride of it.

  5. today was a ruff day Phil almost died from cholera but thankfully none of us got badly damaged by it but some people sadly didn’t make it ,we had to watch the people die when we were walking by. We also have decided to give up the harmonica so we can loose some wait on the wagon. Well we should get going now!
