Jomari I remembered. Who or what would you be in the 1700s. I think this would be a fun challenge.

That's an interesting concept, but I'm curious why 1700's specifically?

If I were left to my own keen resources to feed, clothe and shelter myself back in the 1700's what would I be? Dead, I'm guessing.

Extra Rule: very very minimal(camera obscura) only.

I was a first-born, I think my father would have left me outside to die. He would' rather have had a first-born son. If not, i would probably have been sold as soon as possible.

I'd have been some trash person, sent to the Americas.

Yes! put a hole in your wall and then take a picture of the projection on the opposite wall. You're allowed to turn it upside-down.

Now, THAT's an idea :-)

we need to do that. I'll look for some trash person sent to put a hole in America.

During the 1700s there was much unrest in Germany and much of Europe. There were many people sailing to the new world in search of a better life and by that time settlements were popping up in North East. The settlers had learned to hunt and farm, there were glass blowers, blacksmiths and farmers. They were beginning to live on their own without help from their Mother Country. Those were exciting times indeed. They were explorers and the ones who survive during the first arrival iduring the 1600s had passed down the knowledge they had gained from trial and error and farming skills from the natives.
