Oregon Trail

if you answer is yes to both of these questions then take a moment to travel down memory lane… and play a full game of the classic oregon trail. i remember when i was a kid we had computer classes that were intended to sculpt our skills as young pc users. it consisted of two worlds: learning how to type properly (which i still don’t know how to do) and playing the oregon trail game. i still don’t really know why we played the game – maybe it was to teach us how it really was back then or maybe it was to help us understand basic user interface. fuck if i know. what i do know is that anyone that has played oregon trail can tell you that it was all about the hunting.

Oregon Trail Hunting

this game was intense for a young mind. crossing rivers, people dying left and right of colds and dysentery. well now you can relive it from the comfort of your laptop. hell these days you could probably run the original software on your calculator or heart monitor. if you have one that is.

if i remember correctly, didn’t you get cash for hunting? wasn’t it like the only way you could make money? i wonder if pdiddy ever played oregon trail?

two rappers… two days… on a roll!

There’s an Oregon Trail app on Facebook… I love that people can die of explosive diarrhea.

mother effer! i just died. make sure the first time it gives you an option on trails, go the the fort! surprisingling enough, the only family memember i gave a good name to “survivor” died first.

Ah yes, Oregon Trail was awesome. Another one that I played when I was a kid at school was Amazon Trail, but I think I’m a little younger than you (almost 22) and that game came later so you may not have experienced that one.

Both games ruled, though.

[...] rarest meats in the world and have them delivered directly to your door step. kinda makes all that hunting training on the oregon trail as a kid worthless. here is a picture of a 16oz kobe beef steak from japan for $149.99 – and that [...]
