Read Thread: Oregon Trail Event
Oh dear, didn't mean to make you worry. The rattle snake was part of a box along the Oregon Trail. It looked real enough to give one pause, but it was not (thank heavens). The box was in the snake's coils. I'm sure they chortled with malevolent glee when they planted it beneath the sage brush. Sorry you got lyme disease!
oh whew! That is some twisted humor you folks have out there. lol
Oh, they set it up well, too. Telling us before we headed out that we were in rattlesnake country and to use our walking sticks to poke in holes! It was probably true, but the snakes would not have been where all those pesky people were tramping about. They would have left for quieter quarters. Lol!
We pull up to the area with the box to find one of the other teams throwing rocks at it, then they volunteered me to go grab it!
throwing rocks?? I would have been back in the car so fast it would have made your head swim!
Dawgdok to the rescue! Good thing we sent you to get it. We had no idea that the finder would need a first aid kit. Sorry man. It was worth it though!
You guys had too much fun!!

Just got home from an amazing road trip, adding thanks to the awesome wagon masters! All of your hard work and creativity is greatly appreciated! I'm going to take a nap for about a week now ;)
I too have finally gotten home from our trip to Oregon for the event and a visit to Astoria. The wagon masters went above and beyond for such a fun trip through some of the best views along the river. Our thanks to all for such a perilous trip with trailbreaking pioneers.
