We were safe crossing the Platte river but, we lost a barrel of flour. We all crossed alive, very proud. At first we didn't have a clue of what to do. But soon enough the answer was staring us in the face. We took the wheels off the wagon and had it float across, despite the fierce strength of the current.
We Have Been Attacked by Indians!!!!! So we almost did lose a lot of stuff but thankfully some one had a decent idea and we were saved by liquor. So now we are leaving almost at the speed we went at when returning to earth because those indians probably gulped it down by now. We still havent activated plan a-2 wich allows us to update our knowledge endlessly without trouble end might make our time period have a time machine! But we still are moving on and I REALLY want to forget my experience the indian chief. So this is Samir Bakri signing out!!
We were walking towards topeka Kansas and there were a ton of people moving west. We started to wonder why all these people moving west so we started to ask. Sarah said that she had a big family and they needed more room, Tommy said there was free land. Bethany said that her husband needed room to farm. Heckter said im going for gold.Elisha im only five and im going with my family. Her mom than pitched in were going for more land she has 6 sisters and brothers. After I said i felt like a reporter.
Today we needed to pick and choose what food we need to bring on are long journey. We came up with a really long list of food, so we need to decide which ones are most needed because we can't carry everything! We were thinking,sugar with mollases, dried fruit, flour, tea, rice, beans, bacon in barrels with bran, coffee, tea, yeast, potatoes, water, spices, cornmeal,eggs, salt, pepper, baking soda, whiskey, brandy, quinine. We also had to come up with different medicines to bring with us. We were bringing different foods because apparently, they help us feel better. We came up with, Flaxseed for poison ivy,olive oil for bee stings, onions for small pox, clean bandages/grease for burned skin, whiskey and tobacco for snake bites, marshmallow weed (Purifies water) for skin infections, boiled blackberry roots for diarheah, mustard for poisoning, and camphor. These all help us feel better. We hope we make the right choices and have good consequences.
