me playing oregon trail 2: I know its best to start in march because a large portion of the rivers in the game come in the early game and it’s a lot easier to cross them while they are frozen. by the time you get past the rivers it will be spring and you will be less prone to things like frostbite. I’m going to buy a lot of bacon because for some reason it is incredibly cheap in the mid 1800s. I don’t need a ton of food anyway because I’m planning on hunting, so I’ll just buy a rifle and 800 rounds of ammunition. I’m going to buy oxen, not mules, as they are more efficient and reliable.
