My father can't do it this year because he is very ill, i'm leaving behind my family and friends on this trip.
Hi, I want to become a voyageur because my family and I need more money in order to afford things we need.
I am also homesick
After we left St. Annes it was back to paddle paddle paddle, I didn't really know any of the other men that was on this trip, my muscles hurt so bad but I don't want to complain cause i might just make matters worse.
So we are now portaging, I am behind the whole crew! I'm even behind the boat. I'm only carrying one bag and its too heavy for me.
We made it to Lake Superior, and it was a dangerous journey. It rained so hard too , I was scared when it started to rain, but the past few days have been pretty easy now that I'm used to it, but this day was not one of those easy days.
Even though I didn't want to take on the big water, I had no choice
We made it to the Grand Portage. When I saw the Grade Portage in the distance I was so happy we were finally at the location. I didn´t really know anybody there besides the men I paddle with so I was just lonely, but I got to meet people
When we were going back to Lachine I was so happy to see my family again, my father got well and I think I might be doing this again for the winter , because I got along with the crew and I want to see what voyaging is like in the winter.
Over all I think voyaging isn´t that bad after all, it might be in the winter though, I´ll just have to see for myself
