Description: It's one of those things when you're growing up and it seems like so far away, but as I go back nowadays, I would say we were about maybe eight miles from the trading post. It was in a northeasterly direction, about eight miles. So if we had to walk, maybe it took us a little less than an hour to get there, on horseback maybe thirty minutes. And in a wagon, maybe about an hour. But the roads were bad, and so… we kind of made it the event of the day to go to the trading post.
