Hey, I'm back from the retreat! It was a silent retreat, which drove me crazy. On the second day, I got the strong desire to jump on top of the tables at dinner and sing Copa Cabana at the top of my lungs.

Fortunately, I don't know the words to the song, so everyone was spared from seeing me do a dance routine.

I wanted to do another hour of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, but I'm still having audio/video sync issues, by jingo, so I did a walkthrough for another game: The Oregon Trail, one of my all time favorite games.

Oregon Trail (Part 1): Let's go Hunting!

Oregon Trail (Part 2): Everyone Gets Bitten By a Snake

Oregon Trail (Part 3): Nancy Drew Got Sick and Died

Personally, I am astounded I am the first one to make a video walkthrough for this game. It is a staple of my generation. When I talk to '90's kids, no matter which part of the country they're from, they all remember playing this game for hours on end.

Yay, you're back! I missed you and your blogging while you were gone.
(I decided to name the monkey I got for Christmas "Mr. Monkey" instead of "George", since I always name my monkeys George.)

Yeah, I SO remember that game... I remember naming the people after my family and I. In the end, my brothers had died along with me but before I had gotten all these diseases and stuff. When I died, I was like, "What? I died? NOOOOOOOO!!!"

I loved this game. It was the first pc game I ever had and would play it for hours... Reaching Oregon, Starting Over, Reaching Oregon, Starting Over, Dying Before Reaching Oregon, Starting Over, and Reaching Oregon.... So Fun!
