Summary: Handcarts, horses, and plumbing.

Journal entry: Dear People of the world,
Today was a cold day when we woke up. It started to rain after lunch. I helped push a hand cart today. We got way behind the wagons. We traveled 21 miles today.

The town we were in let us sleep in a shed. Today they're letting us sleep in their house.

Today my horse reared and I almost fell off.

The house we're staying does not have plumbing. Signing out, Dan
