We will need food supplies, timber, and gold from the natives in America
-food (to stay alive and to grow our own food)
-timber (for buildings)
-gold (to return to Portugal)
We will set up a colony right here in South Carolina
Ship design for my expedition
(known as the caravel) We will use triangle sails to "tack" the wind.
Reached Hispaniola and set sail for the Bahamas
Estimated time: 2.5 months
Note: hug the coast line to avoid disasters
We out-ran three pirate ships and avoided capture. This encounter has reminded us of the dangers of the sea. This was a close capture, as we have almost no cannons onboard the ships. We were lucky this time. If I ever make it back to England, then I will require weapons to travel and settle in the New World.
Reached the Bahamas
We are going to stay here for a while because of fall storms in the ocean. We are going to hold out the winter also.
Reached America in present day South Carolina
In estimated time it took 1 year and 9 months.
We landed too late. We were supposed to land here in the beginning of January.
We landed in late spring.
I was afraid of the dangers. We met the pirates but I was scared of the fearsome monsters of the sea and the other major disasters, the storms. I cannot name them but they are like thunderstorms with stronger winds and a lot of rain.
Set sail for Africa
Estimated time: 3 weeks
Gather Resources and set sail for South America
In my estimates it took too long to go to Africa.
Gather as much resources to go several months
Estimated time: 3-4 months
