Covered Wagon Wednesday

Can you imagine traveling in one of these over all sorts of rough terrain and weather?  But many many people did…and here we complain about traffic jams while sitting in our nice warm cars sipping our lattes listening to the weather report on the radio.

I would never have made it as a pioneer 😉

  1. Travelling hundreds of miles in that would be nuts!

  2. I definitely would not have made it as a pioneer either! Those wagons don’t even have air conditioning! ;)-Ashley

    As hubby and I travel across some harsh countryside, we talk about what it must have been like traveling over 100 years ago. There we sit in comfort….leather interior, climate controlled, music in the background and we imagine traveling in a covered wagon. I much prefer my equipment 🙂

    I’ve a hard enough time making it in this convenience-laden world, but, 150 years ago? No way!

    Tv and movies tend to make things seem more glamorous…it was a hard life back then!
