|What's going on in Mr. Solarz' Class?
Today, on the trail, we came to Fort Laramie and traded our oxen for new ones that were the most amazing, strongest oxen in the world! We found out that the doctors said that Iskandar Alatas had a horrible disease and had to stay at the fort. We were also super low on money and had to sell a Prairie Schooner and supplies that were worth millions of dollars! It was the craziest day of our lives!
Today was the most AMAZING and INTENSE day of the Oregon Trail. So Kai Bon was sharpening the knives and then he accidentally threw one of the knives into the air and it landed on his pinky and sliced it right off from him! He shouted so loud that every person heard it in Fort Laramie. Then Alexandrine Haberle she saw this one guy's eyes and then music started playing and then gold lights started shining on them. Then, she decided to stay with him at Fort Laramie.
Oh my gosh someone is sick!
Today we got stopped by a train of Buffalo and A man in our train shout his musket and like a 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 buffalo started running right at the wagon like at 500 miles but we saved are suplies and I was like ahhh we are all going to die. I was so up set that some one did that we should a just shot all the ones that came at us and then we would have lots of food and we would be really warm in the mounttions.
Today something historical happened and put someone in a life threatening situation. Matilda Falk almost died because of a infected foot. She was growing a green a dark green infection and it was ugly. If we wanted to save her the right way we would have to pay 1 billion dollars to just get the check up,but we decided to not and do it our selves. We cleaned her infection and we put in the IV but that cost more than 500 dollars. I think and some others thought that we should end her misery by death. The reason for this is she is costing way to much. Then the IV worked just for now. Hopefully this treatment will work and we wont have to spend one more dime on Matilda.
We stopped at Alcove Spring and it was beautiful! It had fresh water and green grass and the kids had a wonderful time! We sang songs together! Then we had to leave we started to cry but we had to leave and it was so sad I loved the place I wanted to stay forever and ever! When we had to cross the river and 1,000,000 people got infected from there blisters and one of them got there foot cut OFF!!!! When we crossed the river she was screaming in pain but me with super strong arms I lifted her up and carried her to safety! I was her hero! The river was soooooooo shallow there practically wasn't any water at all but it kills me to say that the one who had to get her foot off she may not make it. :( We had to go find buffalo chips to make a fire ther were so super gross and some of the younger children had to collect them and some of them even through them at each other! Gross

We had just crossed the deepest, and last river but today we figured out that 1,000,000,000,000,000 people had infections on there foots from the blisters. But three people who got infected were Matilda Faulk, Antonia Salcedo, and Elin Diaz. Antonia Salcedo, and Elin Diaz had the smallest blisters but had to take medicine for it. But Matilda Faulk had the worst ever blister on her foot, so bad her whole leg had to be cut off.
Today we are starting our journey. We walk for about like 5000 miles and are feet get very blistered. We broke into partnerships very the biggest showdown in the prairie partnerships advanced, but somes journeys ended early. In the end the most painful well what I thought was the most painful way was to wash the needles and then pop the blisters and let the icky goo get all over and drench our campsite. Then we Finally got to a river. We had to cross it though. We were offered to be carried across by the ferry. We did not take the deal because we thought if they are not going to take the oxen then why make the suffer and so we made them suffer with us. I was thinking we could just all jump on the oxen but by the time we were all on there is would take like three hours to get across because we would all be settled on then we would just tip over because there was so much weight on we could do it then fall over and we might hit the wagon and tip them over. There was no way we could cross. So then we had to cross by walking and that was not the best choice because our blisters got worse because bacteria invaded them and turned them evil. There was lots of bacteria you could see how much bacteria went to the blister. Then we read about the painful journey of crossing the Kansas River. We learned about how kids had to help their parents wash clothes. We also read about how you could ferry across or walk through the river. Then in Day 5 we read about how people slept, what people wore( it was pretty ugly ), how weather destroyed campsites, and how the ride was extremely bumpy and rough.
Day 2:In day 2, we were coming up with stuff to bring. We were debating about going on the Oregon Trail, or any other trails. We wanted to Fly instead of walking 5,000,000,000,000,001 miles!!!! But of course! There was no direct flight to Oregon City! There were not even Airplanes! Some of the trails that we could of took was the California trail, Applegate Trail, and the Mormon Trail. If we took either one of those trails, we would have to walk another 147,379,859,439,573 thousand million miles! Finally, we decided to take the Oregon trail.
We were packing all sorts of food! Like for example, we were bringing packed Hamburgers, Eggs, a mini kitchen, and BACON! To be exact, 75,000 pounds of bacon! YUM YUM YUM!!!
Day 3: In day 3 were very upset with the wagons that we have chosen.We were very silly! We have figured that the conestoga wagons that we chose were very large and would be very hard to work with along the Oregon Trail.We would have to make those biceps work. We were trying to negotiate with dealers and travelers along the way to trade our wagons for prairie schooners.”Hey dude, I need one of your schooners.” We came along many people with the schooners but there were not many good deals. Though we came across a very good deal, we passed it down. We should’ve thought twice. Then, we kept coming across different troops with bad deals. We were not gonna walk these around 5,000,000,000,000 miles. Finally we went to a Prairie Schooner shop and asked if we could give them our conestoga wagons for 6 Prairie Schooners.”Hope they fell for it” We were very happy to know that our trick up our sleeve got us 6 schooners. Golly gee what a day. This day was very crazy in every way.
We decided to bring guns to Mars. That was a completely terrible idea. The gun sparked which caused a huge chemical reaction that had blew up the gigantic domes. In that chemical reaction the teleporter had went ballistic and sucked us into a UFO that had traveled around a place that we had no clue where it was. It had landed and we heard a crunch when we landed. Some guy was generous enough to lend us his money. Actually we had crushed him with our teleporter. Mikey had snatched the gold strait out of his hand. Apparently tons of people had seen it. Then a crazy old cook had told us that that the soil was rich and cheap in the west. Thats when it had came to us. We should travel west and join all those people on the journey there.
