I was given the opportunity to go with the youth of my stake (I'm LDS) on a pioneer trek to reenact, for a short period of 3 days, the long trek early saints made across the U.S. We were not permitted to bring cell phones, electronics, or even digital watches. It seemed very realistic, at least to me as a 14 year old. It was very hard to walk and pull a handcart filled with all of my family's belongings across tight trails, through tall grass, over tree roots, down steep hills, and even through a muddy flood plain. We cooked our own food and even had to churn our own butter. One night we even had a hoedown where there was fun dancing, music, and games around a large bonfire. The experience was very spiritual and I felt extremely close to God in nature. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that was extremely fun and very spiritual.
