Oregon TrailJournal #2July 12, 1843

Im setting off to the Oregon Trail. I know there are major dangers out there like animals, poison plants, and Indians but I believe I can make it back alive. I plan to take a wagon to the Rocky Mountains then settle on foot just to keep it safe I dont know what is beyond that point. I packed up some aluminum plates and silverware, some cards, clothes,weapons, and some food.I have 3 friends traveling with me on my 2000 mile trip. One speaks some languages of the Natives so I hope we can get help surviving from them.

We arrived at Independence Rock today at around 4 a.m. I can tell people were here already because I can see their names carved in the stones. I carved my name in it at the bottom. We stopped at a couple of tribes but they didnt want to help so we just kept settling west. We covered 1000 miles already and we are half way there so I know we can make it, we are in perfect condition. I cant wait to get to the Gold.
