An interview with the creators of The Oregon Trail. (Just scroll down a wee bit.) Excerpt:

Michael Gutman, age 10, writes:
How come you can only carry so much food back to the wagon?
Bill: You can only lift so much as a frontier person.
Paul If you took more back it would rot and you would get sick anyway.
Don: You kill a buffalo, and your just out there by yourself, you canít drag him. I mean, itís accurate.
intern jeff: What if youíre really strong though?
Paul Well then you could take more, but not the whole buffalo.
Now if only I knew what the secret in "The Secret of Monkey Island" was.
