I became a Voyageur because my dad got hurt doing my chore. I got a job as a Voyageur and I left my family and friends back at home. Now I start my journey as a Voyageur.
After visiting St. Anne's church they were worried that nothing would happen to them. I get along with some of the brigade and other i don't get along with. My blisters and muscles are sore from paddling all day long. I get homesick thinking about my family and I would rather be at home.
We went through the rapids and it was really rough. Our canoe got stuck on a rock and LaLonde fell out of the canoe. We spent hours trying to find him and we never did.
The brigade and I are now starting to cross Lake Superior. We stayed close to the shore. After awhile the water began to be rough and water began to come in the canoe. So we went on land we had to dry off all of the trade goods.
The brigade and I arrived at the Rendezvous. I met the Mukwa's family when Chrbonneau and I where invited to have dinner with them. Chrabonneau and Mukwa talked about old times with LaLonde. I became friends with Kennewah.
The Brigade and I are finally back at Lachine. I returned to see my friends and family. I will stay home and continuing my studies to maybe own a trading company when I am older.
