Summary: Bad luck clutch.

Journal entry: Dear people of the world
Today we had to take the truck into Casper so I didn't get to go on the trail by the time we got to Casper the truck was smoking bad my mom had once again burned up the clutch so we had to go straight to the Ford dealer.

After that we went to the mall and then we went and saw the train coming into town and I went and jumped on our wagon and rode through a parade and out to camp which is at Fort Casper.

It rained and rained and rained and rained some more and our tarp blew off our wagon and ripped the canvas so we could tell that it really was Friday the 13. We are glad that we get a day off we are going to maybe see a movie.

Well I am Dan Whitaker in a grass field in fort Casper Wyoming.
