When they found a pleasing place to make camp and stay a while, they would do so. When they were near a township, the men took odd jobs to support them. Several times, they spent upwards of six months a place, but something was always lacking and the pull they felt to keep going was strong.

Boones Ferry: Maybe you 've heard of this guy Daniel Boone, one of the country 's most famous fur-pelt-wearing frontiersmen. His grandson, Alphonso Boone, trekked to Oregon via the Applegate wilderness trail in 1846. A year later, Alphonso 's enterprising son, Jesse, began operating a ferry across the Willamette, just west of the current site of the Interstate 5 Boone Bridge at Wilsonville.
