City Mice For Life


{via}

We're back from camping/pioneer life.
Seriously. Pioneers.
Remember computer class in the 90s?
Yep. Sometimes my family likes to camp on that famous stretch of land.

It's a simple life.

Eat bacon everyday.
Wear flannel.
Shoot guns.



We even waded through the icy Barlow Creek.

No one got dysentery.
And
Our team of oxen survived.

Thank you very much.

xoxo

Oh Oregon Trail! Many hours spent losing everything rafting across the river and dying over and over again. Such a positive little game for us kiddos.

This is great! My friends all do the same sorta thing, we also shoot skeet a lot and occasionally some rifles. Does kinda make it feel like Oregon Trail. Glad you survived and are back home safely!

did you know you can still play it online! I forget the website but a year or so ago I got totally addicted and was playing it all the time! You even have to "flip the disk" over at one point. It's just like playing back in the old days! It's great!
