New York, late 1760s. A Poor Man named Sam Formholtz reads the newspaper.
More Taxes! There's no way I can ever afford them! And I can't go to Jail!
We Can't stay here. We'll starve! We can't afford any food!
I hear that there's plenty of unclaimed land west of the Catskills!
Later that night...
But where will we go?
Before we left, we stopped at several shops cashing in favors with our friends. We got all the supplies we needed, including (but not limited too) weapons, ammo, medicine, food supplies, tools, books, alcohol, clothing, etc. We also invited several of our friends to come, but very few of them did. The neighbor family decided to come with us but they decided after we had left so we did not see them until after we arrived.
We thought that we were totally prepared for our journey, but neglected to pack supplies in order to cross water. When we arrived at the Hudson River, we had to stop for a week in order to build boats.
Our boats were not large enough to hold all of our supplies, and several boxes were lost. We spent another week searching for our lost supplies.
Once we got over the Catskills, we labored several weeks in order to build a cabin. We got situated and things went well for the time being.
