Especially this morning due to the hard work he had done the previous night. There wasn’t anything else to do but to work especially when you have gold fever.
The morning was damp and foggy, San’s camp site was by the old military Miller Creek at one-time it was a river now it was just a dried River bed. Sam could see that after the fog burned off and the rays of the sun pierced thought the fog in was going to be a nice warn day, once the sun was out.
It was the end of the month and Sam needed supplies so he decided to go into town which was about 60 miles away. He decided to leave his old mule behind and just walk alone into town. He needed time to think he had been looking for gold for so long and he had very little to show for it, he gave up so much for the possibility of discovering gold.
As Sam approach the outskirts of the town he noticed some strange sounds coming from the town and started to wonder what it could be, he had never heard anything like that before. As he got closer to town he could see where the sound was coming from it looked like a wagon but it had no horses to draw it. He asked people around him and they told him it was a Horse less Carriage. Without knowing it a new era had creep up on old Sam.
What a strange and amazing contraction Sam thought to himself. Sam decided it was about time he quit prospecting and return to civilization. He felt he missed out not seeing the progress that had overtaking him. He thought to himself I need a change of life Ian getting tired of being alone and nothing to show for it I need to be around people and I what to see progress.
