Pierre:What will my family think when I tell them about me signing on to be a voyageur? sense father cant be one guess Ihave too!
I befriended some of the other voyageurs on my canoe,but I'm really home-sick and my hands have blisters on them from paddeling for so long!
Me and my canoe-mates decided to portage instead of try to paddle through the rapids,when they handed me my packs I noticed that they were heavier then the other voyageurs but they were just playing a prank on me!!
When we got to Lake Superior we decided to cut through the middle because it would take less time, once we started cutting through the lake our canoe broke open and we had to paddle has hard as we could to get to a island with the other voyageurs.
We finally made it to Grand portage!! Can't wait to finally eat some actual food and not boiled corn or fish, I'm also very exicited to be able to let my arms and hands rest from all the paddling
I made my decision to return back to Lachine but i will miss Grand Portage, but I will sign on next spring to the North West company as a voyageur
