Summary: Buffalo meat tastes like chicken.

Journal entry: Dear People of the World
Today it has rained and rained and rained some more. The farmers say it hasn't rained in 9 months so they are very happy. Our wagons are deep in the mud.

A friend of mine Cindy does acupuncture and she is helping me get rid of my warts. I did part of my day with the Odessey you know from the Odessey channel and they are making a wagontrain series called Legacy West and they had me do some acting on it. I got to eat some buffalo it tasted just like chicken.

We are staying in the school gym we are in the city of Oshkosh it is a mess. This is a small town only 986 people.

Naomi got stuck in the mud. It is Memorial Day so everything is closed and we also have a ton of extra people walking with the handcarts.

Most of the men here have beards and long shaggy hair. Well this is Dan in a school gym in Oshkosh Nebraska.
