One of our fellow pioneer decided that since the herd of buffalo was STILL in our way on the trail that he would try to shoot one of them. Luckily he shot one of the buffalo so we had something to eat for dinner and the buffalo actually didn't stampede toward us but away from us. Unfortunately as the buffalo were stampeding, they scared the oxen but the oxen didn't run away.
While we were at Fort Kearny, we traded our so tired oxen for new and more rested ones. We had to kind of BEG William Rynhart who was the man who traded oxen to give us a discount because we were a little bit poor. Luckily, William gave us a little bit of a deal for the oxen so we only had to pay about $145 which was a pretty good deal!
While we were on the trail, we found out the wagon train ahead of us had a really bad disease and we didn't want to get it so we all decided that we would drink Canola Oil because it would help by protecting us from the disease.
We finally got to Fort Kearny and we were so excited to stay here. Fort Kearny is a really small fort so we had to stay in sod houses which are houses that have a roof of grass. We fixed our wagon here while we stayed because we lost a wheel during our trip. So we relaxed here and stayed for a while.
After we left Fort Kearny, we continued our trip to the West. While we were traveling, we past a few graves where Robert Gagne's nephew died. As Mr. Gagne was looking at the grave and the wagon train started to move. Luckily Mr. Gagne didn't get lost and managed to catch up with the train after about 15 minutes.
We also found out the their was an argument going on in our wagon because Mr. Mcoy wanted to leave the Hatfields behind but nobody wanted to leave the Hatfields so it was a really big problem but luckily no one was hurt.
