    In Canada, there was a wagon train about 20 years ago. The government told people that if they could travel from Toronto to northern Manitoba, they would get hundreds and hundreds of acres free.

    Well, it was so hard that only one family made it. And, it was so lonely when they got there that they didn't stay the required one year.

    I saw the wagon train, it was amazing.
