It's time to fulfill our destiny. We're leaving Independence, Missouri and traveling 2000 miles west through unforgiving wilderness in the hopes of reaching the promised land of Oregon. Many have made the journey. Most have perished, but a few have reached the end. We'll probably be in the former category.

Welcome to VGF Oregon Trail. I'll be the wagon leader and main decision-maker. First four people to post get to be part of the wagon, but anyone can help with the decision making. The first order of business will be choosing our profession. The choices, along with their pros and cons, are listed below.

IRHP says banker, RU says merchant. Who wants to break the tie?

MERCHANT IT IS

So now that our party has been assembled, we need to purchase supplies for the trip.

Some friendly advice from the vendor:

Also, we need to pick a date to set out. If we don't get it right we could be in a lot of trouble later on.

7 Oxen
1 of each spare part
30 boxes of bullets
1000 lbs of food
maybe some clothes I guess

Also I didn't do the math on how much money this will be.

^ All you've specified plus 15 sets of clothes would cost us $580, leaving us with $620 left over.
