There are so many other people heading west. And for so many different reasons. The gold found in California is bring many people west. I don't have a good feeling that, but others do. Some moved out west as refugees from justice because it was easier to hide. I don't understand that either. Why would people do bad things in the first place, but I guess it works. Also some people are moving just to move. I heard they want to escape the life of a Mountain Man. There again are some many moving but for different reasons. But there was one that really stuck out in my mine, people moving to be with others of the same religion for example or be with people who speak the same language. I don't know why, but it really stuck out. Another was that people wanted to have and get a better job.
My name is Zoe Phillips. I really enjoy Oregon. But boy, has my life been hard. With my parents have a hard time with the farm and growing crops, we have a struggle. The people here are so nice and really fun to be around. My friends and I have lived in Oregon for a while now and are very excited to go on the Oregon trail. My job is teeth cleaner and fixer. I enjoy my profession but I also enjoy helping out friends in family on the farm.
