Both appalling, frightening, and incomplete. In both cases, you'll find one: a fairly large
Group of ill-prepared greenhorns pitting themselves against nature and each other; two:
An insufficient willingness to endure the very real hardships of frontiering, and three:
Coincidental misfortune at every turn.

Disasters of both camps were initially brought about by departure, delay, desert, inertia;

Hark back to our forefathers' shortcomings, (and your own), as you cut your meat and
Lay the groundwork for a new tomorrow.
