Question of the Week: If you had a time machine (i.e. a TARDIS), where would you go?
I've always been vastly interested in the times where one would have Prarie life. Like Oregon Trail-Laura Ingall Wilder times. The Little House books were the very first books I read on my own obsessively and I personally attribute my love of reading to them.
I also was obsessed with books that took place along the Oregon (and similar) Trails and then the Orphan Train Books which came at a later time period but still have that sense of adventure in a wild, prarie land.
My family and I even went camping among the Oregon Trail for a week and visited major landmarks such as some of the forts, Chimney Rock and the famed Independance Rock with hundreds of names carved into it.
There's something about the sense of adventure and unknown in that time period that I've always gravitated towards.
