the Oregon Trail
Sure, you've heard of the Oregon Trail computer game, but there's so much more.....
Lewis and Clark? Not really.
Leaving home forever. And you can't take anything.
The 2,000 mile walk across the old west.
Mules or oxen, but almost never horses.
They walked barefoot. And no bathing.
Four months of burned bread and sleeping on the ground.
As far as the eye could see. And tasty too.
Friends, not foes--until they couldn't take it anymore.
