Final Pioneer Diary Entry
We have hit Snow Pass, the last trail until Oregon. Oh, how am I so excited! But me and my wagon train had to make a big decision. You see, our trail guide has told us that it is snowing, and it is the 4th storm of the winter and its only NOVEMBER! So we had to figure out what we should do!
First I want to tell you about what has been happening. Juan and Robert have been fighting about for who gets more bacon. Sometimes there are very awkward moments when we are in the same wagon, but I really want to tell one of them to stop fighting about dumb bacon!
One thing that I am going to remember for my whole life is that on April 1st Juan, Robert and Dr. Dan played a trick on me. I really don't like what they did because it wasted a lot of food. The trick was when I walked into my bunkbed they started throwing eggs and more eggs and more eggs at me. I was so soaked with egg yoke. They wasted about 75 eggs. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t in their wagon train for things like that.
But back to that decision. We had to figure out whether to head directly to Snow Pass, send scouts to see what was going on, spend the winter in High Valley or turn around and head back to Paradise. We chose to send scouts out to see what was going to happen because all the other ones would either take too long or are too risky.
If I had to give any advice to any other pioneers I would say to stay strong and always be positive because there is always going to be obstacles but you will get through them. And if there is someone you hate don’t dream about shooting them like I did. Just ignore them because if you do it will lead to bad, bad things.
