My dad always wanted me to be a farmer, but when i told him i didn't want to be he didn't listen so Im going away to be a voyageur, im going to miss my little sister though.
I like everyone in my brigade but Liam who is a boy about my age , i have tons of blisters and paddleing is hard and i really miss home.
today we portaged, there was no way i was doing those rapids! but the carry was so heavy i wish we would have... a man from a different brigade died today i almost WALKED home when i heard.
We stayed on the side mostly, it was a gray day out there were HUGE waves that knocked us back sevral time along the shore.
to see the trading post from the distance was amazing it was like... yes its over then i relized that it was only half over but thats ok because i was closer to seeing my sister.
there's no way im staying and wintering over i need to see my sister again i need to go home i dont care if i have to do what my dad wants this was the worst thing ever my thumbs are sore
some people were saying that they owed debts to the company i dont know why i hope thats not me the men who owed debts are saying that they are going to start a new life elsewhere i think there joking.
