Excerpt from Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 40: Organ of the Deseret Sunday School Union; May 1, 1905
It rained a good part of the way, and the roads were therefore very bad. Some times when we got stuck in the mud, teams had to be taken from other wagons to pull us out. Every once in a while, on the journey, one of the wagons in the company would break down, and that would delay us all; for we did not like to go ahead and leave any one behind. Sometimes when the roads were the worst three or four teams had to be put on a single wagon to draw it for a mile or so, and then go back for another; and so on till all the wagons were drawn up to where the first one had been taken. Then if there was time, the wagons would be pulled another mile or so in the same way. Of course, this did not happen' very often, else we should have been all win ter, and perhaps the next spring, in reaching our destination. When this cc. Curred, we could seldom make more than two or three miles a day.
