I didn't know that we needed so many things on the Oregon trail and there are so many things that we shouldn't bring. The pumpkins will rot and so will the tomatoes. Salted pork is good but salted ham we should not bring. We spent many minutes in groups debating whether we should bring mule or ox, we chose ox because they are stronger and smarter. We have to bring a gimlet, an ax, a hammer, a shovel, some whetstone, an oxbows, 6 axles, 2 kingbolts, 5 spokes, 1 wagon tongue, 5 heavy ropes, and 2 chains as our best bet. We have limited space so we cant bring much some people wanted to bring 12 extra axles but I thought that that was way, way to much because we only have a little more than 300 miles to the next fort where we can buy more and I don't think that every axle will break in 300 miles. We brought a lot of food but some I don't think was a good idea to bring.
