Do you ever imagine what it would of been like to be alive during the days of the old west. No cars, no phone no computers.. the list goes on. Yes indeed we have come a long way since the 1800’s. Many things of changed and it is called progress.

We recently started watching a series called “Hell on Wheels”.. This is a series about the Union Pacific’s construction of the first transcontinental railroad. I am not sure how factual the story line itself is but I would bet how they are building that railroad and the encounters they are running into would be pretty much how it really happened.

I wonder what the people thought who joined a wagon train to take them to California. Even if they were told what to expect.. I am quite certain that they had no idea what really did lay ahead of them. Can you imagine trying to explain the Rocky Mountains to someone….. You are able to see this mountain range from about 100 miles away. If the wagon train traveled 10-20 miles a day… they would be looking at those mountains for DAYS>>> and DAYS…. each day getting a bit closer.. What must of been going through their minds as they got closer?

I am not saying that I would of loved to of lived in the 1800’s but I must tell you I really do enjoy reading and watching programs about it. Those people had GRIT!….. as well as a few other adjectives I could write.. but for the moment I will stick with GRIT!

I am not a prepper…. but I do think that knowing how people lived in the 1800’s would be a good thing to know. Knowing how to be sufficient sure can’t hurt. And planning ahead is always a good thing.

I am reading a book called The Lost Ways… It has so much info in it about the old days.. Just look at the Table of Content…… Learning how things were done is not only very interesting but also educational as well..
