Dad stayed in the hospital for over a week by the time he came home, he had put over 70 Ivs in his arms. Dad was nervous to go to his appointment the next week because he didn’t want to stay there again. It was harsh that year he sleepwalked out in the cold to go to town but couldn’t find the keys. Mom told everyone to get up and help find dad, so I looked outside and when I looked in the car there he was sleeping in the driver seat. With the doctor bills and all of the other stuff we are kind of broke.
Finally, after nearly 2 weeks of driving we arrived in California.In the beggining, work was hard. My brother, father, and I worked for long hot days in the long fields with many other children,and fathers. Eventually, we started getting the hang of things,but it definitely wasn’t any easier. My mom cleaned and cooked, well Anna made new friends in the camp. It was hard for our family to make the adjustment at first, but after a few weeks,we got into the routine of things.
In Yukon during the gold rush, a miner named Clay Dilham goes on a search for firewood while leaving his partner doing supper. During his journey, he had spotted a dead tree in the side of a a icy hill. He must climb “up the slide” to reach the tree, although he did not realize how treacherous the way down could be. He had experienced so many obstacles that he had decided that the best way down is going up the hill, which is still not that easy. After many hours, he had finally reached the top which had used much of his energy.
My father and I were traveling in our truck from our house, tired from packing for our trip to our box blind in the woods. We were going hunting for a deer that morning at four A.M. We were nervous feeling the pressure of hunting in our stomachs. It was a cold morning nearly fifty-degrees outside, cold enough that I needed warm clothing. I felt cramped while riding with all of our gear in the cab with us, wishing I could get out and stretch my legs. Eventually I fell asleep, listening to music on my iPod wondering when we 'll reach our destination.
Let’s think about the Donner Party, a group of emigrants who were traveling from Springfield, Illinois to California. They started their journey in April 1846, following the California Trail until Wyoming, where 89 of the party took a shortcut that was said to shave two weeks off of the journey. The rough terrain of the Wasatch Mountains was tough on their wagons so they stopped to make repairs and rest the animals. Snowfall approached and trapped them within the Sierra Nevada mountains, they shortly ran out of food and water and turned to eating their pack animals, sticks, and dirt. When one member of the party perished of malnutrition they resorted to cannibalism.
Using my old skateboard, I wheeled the anvil down to the designated area of forging, set up by my parents so I wouldn't burn down the house. The rigorous process of setting everything up took roughly one and a half hours. As I lifted the bag of charcoal, the scent of burnt wood stung my
August Bank Holiday, the day of the explosion, he visited the graves of those killed in the explosion, apologising on behalf of his family and begging their forgiveness. The rest of the year, he travelled around the country, following a well-worn path of his own making. For food and shelter in barns or outhouses, he would chop wood, do gardening, tell novel tales, or lend a hand at the many farms where he stopped. Rupert Lane was a narrator, bard, and silver–tongued romancer, who plotted stories and edited them in his head. He had the gift of holding children spellbound for hours at a time.

On April 13th, 2016 I took part in my first cross country dirt bike race. Cross country racing is on an 10-20 mile track through the woods with hills, logs, large rocks, and many other obstacles to get past. Riders must battle the terrain for 2 hours to finish the race The race was about an hour north somewhere around Martinsville, Indiana. My dad could not go with me because of work so it was just my mom and I taking the trip there. My dad’s truck was with him at work so we were forced to borrow my cousin’s delivery van which only had one seat.
The friends ran over to Rambo 's house and piled on his dad 's four wheeler. They pursued the van on a four wheeler, deep into the forest. The friends were cramped and tired after at least two hours of following the van. Dave was an experienced driver so of course he was good at keeping their distance between the van, so they wouldn 't get caught. Finally after what seemed like an eternity the van stopped in front of a large gray factory.

Antonio was the oldest of six children, when his parents became sickly he struggled to financial support the family. He was approached with the opportunity to work in California doing construction work. The contractor (whom was a coyote) offered Antonio the option to pay off the debt to get into America once he received his job since he was unable to pay the fee upfront. In hopes to provide for his family Antonio took the deal and loaded a bus with others who were doing the same. “When the bus arrived at sparse border camp in the Sonora desert, the workers were separated and given to other coyotes.” (Slavery in the Fields, P453).
