that was thomas. from news accounts the idea worked until he and his soon-to-be-ex-investors got going too fast and the wagon self destructed, with injuries.
he was going to have sail wagon trains for the westward expansion and, having just enough knowledge of sailing, i figured the main problem was that the prevailing wind is from the west and they'd spend most of their time tacking. they'd put on 20 times the miles. wonder whether he was a sailor?
