This morning we were in West Virginia and we went to a reenactment showing what it would be like living in the 1800's. We got to pet a chicken that lays eggs every day for many years. The chickens feathers were really soft. I also got to throw a tomahawk into a piece of wood. To do this you put the tomahawk behind your head with your thumb on the handle. You then take a step forward with your left foot and throw the tomahawk so that it spins one time and then hits the log. We also learned how to start a fire without matches using flint and steel.
After spending a couple hours there, we went back to the RV and had lunch. Then we started our drive to Ohio. We drove along the Ohio River for most of the way, and we passed a pretty cool bridge. In West Virginia and Ohio we passes a lot of small and dirty houses that probably have lots of issues with leaking. We stopped at a nice small town on the Ohio River called Gallipolis. We went into some shops, and my favorite one had glass beads that looked really cool. We also walked down to the Ohio River.
We went back to the RV and drove farther north along the Ohio River to a town called Marietta. We stayed at a Walmart to sleep for the night. We went shopping for food and some parts for our Halloween outfit. We had soup and salad for dinner, and it was really good. We watched a movie and went to bed.
