I know I became a voyageur to impress my dad and also that he sliced his thumb open. I'm leaving behind my family and friend's. I'll also miss my school but mostly family.
I'm not felling so great after leaving St. Annes and my family. I know I left a donation for great travels up ahead. I'm heading of in to the unknown and I'm scared. At least I get along with my brigade because I now most of them. My muscles hurt so much from paddling my blisters burn so much. I feel so homesick I miss my friend's my family even my school I rather be doing homework then this.
I see the first rapids It's looks crazy , are brigade is running the rapids I'm pretty scared. There's a lot of rocks tons of waves and splash's I don't know why were running this. It's so wild and crazy the rapids almost tipped us over and made us lose everything. It's so crazy that I almost fell over and drowned I wished we just did a portage.
I finally see Lake Superior and it looks more dangerous then I ever will think. The water is just raging I can´t even paddle and now, I have to use a pot to get the water out because I´m the youngest. I´m glad my brigade choose to stick to the shore It looks like It could kill men In a instant because of the swift water´s.
I can´t believe It, It´s Grand Portage I see the post´s and there huge and long and there´s a bunch of Ojibwa Indians trading fur for pots and other metals. I can´t believe I made It, guess I´m no longer grandpa because I´m a voyager.
