While traveling to one of the missions via buck board on the other side of the game board, I had time to make a pot of coffee, go to the bathroom, text with a coworker, scan my emails, have a smoke, look at some journal entries, and make this post.
You can skip to you destination if you like, but it makes for a nice break.
The in game world is huge. Plus have you ever travelled by buck board or stage coach? it’s frickin’ slow. S-L-O-W. By todays standards.
