Before I even watch any of these let me pass this along. In 1915 my grandfather was 13 years old and road a buckboard pulled by a pair of mules. He, and his family, also came south, in that wagon, where he met his wife to be who had come north, out of Missouri in a wagon with her family. We're not as far from 'The Wild West' as one would think.

Hay, did y'all get a load of the ankles on that chick in the 3rd flicker?

The great SF writer Jack Williamson famously went in covered wagon with his parents to settle in New Mexico, and then lived into the 21st century, writing good SF till the end.
