Journal entry: Dear People of the World
Today we traveled five miles across the prarie. No road well maybe sometimes a little one.

The television camera talked to me so maybe I will be on the news.

It was kind of scarry today we went in alot of sand and sand hills.

We had a horse accident today a guy named Walter Ogamoto his horse fell in a hole and then roled over on him they took him away on a board he was very lucky he only has a very bad sprain.

It started to get windy and we had major dust my face looked pretty dirty by the time we got to camp..

It is still windy some friends are going to watch the Utah Jazz play somewhere.

Our mules did great today they really had to pull hard to get our wagon up those big sand hills.. I walked the whole day today.
