oregon trail memories

No, I didn’t really get a snake bite, shoot 20 buffalo, or come down with cholera. I didn’t really travel across the United States in a covered wagon. I didn’t really trade with pioneers at forts and frontier towns.

Yet I have memories – vivid memories – of the Oregon Trail thanks to the computer game of the same name. For a while, it was my favorite game. And now, more than fifteen years later, there’s a film about it. If you are in your twenties or thirties and grew up playing some version of Oregon Trail, you’ll get this video. If not, it might make you scratch your head, but trust me: it’s funny.
