Dear people of the world,
My name is Daniel Whitaker and I have three brothers and two sisters and a mom and dad. Today was the first day on the trail. We got up at four thirty. A guy rang a bell to wake us up. We are the eleventh wagon of 26 and there are 10 handcarts and a lot of walkers. It was a cold and rainy day in Omaha, NE. We traveled 15 miles today. We traveled on the side roads out of the city. When we reached camp site 1 the sun came out and a horse got colic and the horse is better now. Hi Ken, Sue made it today.
We set up camp in Washington in a hilly weed field. Today went very well I am looking forward to dinner. Well see ya tomorrow.
