Up early, I checked out of the Hyatt and dragged myself to Sutter's Fort. I spent the morning being trained about the covered wagon for the Sutter's Fort Environmental Living Program. This is a special program that allows California school children to “live” history. The students, along with their teacher and trained parent helpers, spend 24 hours portraying characters of 1840s California and partaking in the various trade activities and entertainment of the era.
Jack's class is going to participate in the program next month and I am going to be one of the trained parent helpers.
