We have no food son, but we will be in Oregon soon, you can eat there once we get money, besides we just had mother for dinner.
Lets get on our prairie schooner and get back to the trail.
Papa I'm tired!!!
Now that my son is out of the way, I can get to Oregon faster! My son would eat 2-3 pounds of food a day! What a waste of my food. Now we'll be more efficient than ever!
Well, you should be! We've been walking for about 1,600 miles! Only 400 to go my boy! Then we'll be in glorious Oregon! Maybe we should take a rest soon. Pitch up the wagon cover and Ill remove some supplies from the wagon to get us dinner.
Why did we have to eat mommy?
Phew, I justified that well...
It was for survival son, we ran out of food and we would have died without eating her! Plus, Many people do it for survival, especially if they don't have the supplies they need. Food is a valuable resource and we cant let any go to waste. Now go get a foot and I'll find us some clean water.
Look son, It's the rocky mountains! It will be a long journey to get through the Rocky Mountains, but we can do it! Maybe we can find some mountain men to help us.
What are mountain men, Papa?
Settlers who emigrated to the west long before us. I heard rumors that trade with newcomers, so be on the lookout.
Maybe I can trade Todd to them for some more food... We are running low...
Wait, who are you people? Go away! These are my supplies!
