We'll take a five day break once we reach the landmark.

Watch out for the Torpedo Teds.

Once again running low on food, and once again engaging in wasteful hunting.

Can oxen get dysentery?

I'm pretty sure talking doesn't require arms.

Obviously important historical figures well known for their relations to these shoddily-shaded people.

I literally don't know who that guy is.

Also "Good for the animals" THERE'S NO GRASS FOR THE OXEN YOU JERK.

Well, other than food, there's not much I can think of that we need. We might as well hunt than continue onward.

Archaeologists centuries from now will be able to trace our path solely due to the corpses we leave in our wake.

Yeah, this one's actually worse than the last river.

3 pairs of clothing can be replaced but 1 oxen 100 pounds of food, a wagon axle and Panfan are much more expensive. Unless someone has any objections asking for help might be best.

look here's what we do, we start floating the wagon, we put me at the back of the wagon, I stick my head in the water and I start SCREAMING REALLY LOUD. the sheer force of my voice will provide a solid source of propulsion while maintaining proper buoyancy for the wagon and as long as I'm in the center there should be no risk of tipping over. I will probably drown, and to be honest I hopefully will.

otherwise yeah give the inappropriately named folk some clothes since we're just going to **** them over in the next century

We'll remember the kindness of the natives when we're forcibly relocating them to reservations.

I'll remember alright--remember they drove a hard bargain and I'll feel nothing. Three sets of clothes. Three. Sets. Of. Clothes.

At least Loot was bit. I'd trade three pairs of clothes for that anyway.

Hey, they'll need those sets of clothes to carry their family's corpses. I mean we're at the tail end of the Trail of Tears in 1848 after all.

See? I'm thinking ahead for them.

:indifferent2: This game is supposed to be fun.

Do the same as before, I guess. Sit for a couple days and hunt so we don't starve.

Edit: Wait, no water?! YOU'RE RIGHT NEXT TO A RIVER!

That got pretty deep for a game of Oregon Trail. Felt bad for our nameless genderless (how progressive) Indian friend and his family. We should have gave 4 sets of clothes. I feel bad now, so greedy...
