I got home with my contract to be a Voyageur,I came home during dinner,My mom saw the contract and her eyes started to water.But my dad was proud of me.Even tho i would leave my family behind I was ready.
I was getting really homesick that night,My hands where very sore, we had a soup dinner,the Brigade was doing challenges by jumping over the fire, we went to sleep under our canoes that night, it was really uncomfortable..
Hey,you made it
We just entered the Rapids,the water was rough,our canoe got stuck on a boulder,La Londe Went to get it unstuck,when he got it unstuck he slipped,he fell into the Rapids,We didn't save him in time...The waves swept him up into the rapids,We decided to go forward...
We had just entered Lake Superior,The weather was bad,the water was bad,I felt like the canoe was gonna snap in half,it was very hard to paddle,but I had to keep paddling so we would get out of their sooner.
We had just entered the Portage,we had amazing meals,everyone was so nice.I met a great man called Mukwa,I also found out that the Indian name for Lake Superior is Gitchegammi.
