Everyone is skilled in one area. In which of the following areas are you most skilled?
Out on the American frontier, you would have held a job as a fur trapper. A gritty and often dirty job, being a fur trapper meant months away from home, often living off the land. While most people don't have the tenacity or grit for such a job, you most certainly do. You've never been one to fear getting your hands dirty.
Back on the American frontier, you would have been a wagon wright! It would have been your task to repair and build wagons used for everyday travel and long journeys. Detail oriented and good with your hands, you would have skillfully allowed frontiersman and families to get where they needed to go.
Back on the American frontier, you would have been a soap maker! Let's be honest, you're a big fan of creature comforts. A warm bed and a hot shower are two of your favorite things. Being a soap maker would have been tedious, but it would have allowed you to stay in the safety of town, crafting something that everyone (desperately) needed to use.
Back on the American frontier, you would have been a weaver! You're a nurturing and kind soul who is all about giving comfort to others. As a weaver, you would have crafted blankets, baskets, and clothing for the town. It isn't a gritty job, but it is one of the most important there is.
Back on the American frontier, you would have been a hired gun. Temperamental and grudge-prone, you could have skillfully taken out those who had an agenda against your own beliefs or kinfolk. With a steady hand and a sharp eye, being a hired gun would have lead to respect from your townspeople and a bit of fear from your enemies!
