we make wheels to transport canoes on land

we purchase a unique hat from the indians

William Clark - June 16, 1805

"...Some rain, at about 2 oClock Capt. Lewis joined me from the falls 5 miles distant & infd. that the Lard Side was the best portage, I dispatched 2 men this morning ...to examine the portage _ the Indian woman verry bad & will take no medisin what ever,until her husband finding her out of her Senses easily provailed on her to take medisin, if she dies it ill be the fault of her husband as I am now convinced ... Selected 6 men to make wheels to draw the Canoes on as the distance was probably too far to be carried on the mens shoulders."
