About This Quiz

Back in the old days when people headed to the west to seek a better way of life, a lot of them headed out there on wagons while on the Oregon Trail. A lot of people that used that trail had a pretty good time, making their way west, and had no huge issues other than the normal ones of the time. Pretty cool right? Well, yeah, but a lot of other people died. A lot of them died because of diseases such as dysentery or the elements they were exposed to on the way west.

Now, we know that you do a pretty good job when it comes to taking care of yourself. Last week at the company barbecue you were the only one that was able to get the grill started, and last night when it was cold you went out and got a couple logs and made a fire in your fireplace, so we have a pretty good idea that you would have survived the harsh realities of the Oregon Trail just fine. But some other people aren't quite as tough or resourceful as you are. Take this quiz and find out how you would have done on the Oregon Trail.
