I have to leave my family for a while and I will miss them, here is why..
I better go for him.
I left my family and friend at school. Now, i'm on the river.
I wish they would stop making jokes about me..
We got to rapids and had to portage..
Why is it so heavy..?
I wanted to sleep in, which was a bad idea. My dad was chopping the kindling for me and he got badly hurt. This also meant he couldn't be a voyageur.
LaLonde drowned in the river a few days before we got to Lake Superior.
My hands and arms hurt, but I don't want to look weak. The people in my canoe are teasing me a lot and I only get along with some of them so far. I kind of do want to go home.
We did see Grand Portage in the distance.. but stopped.
It was difficult even though the gave me a one pack. They tricked me and made it almost as heavy as a two pack. I don't want to do this again..
I did go back to Lachine with my brigade..
Since LaLonde was gone, Beloit became the new bowman. It got really cold on Lake Superior, and we decided to try to take a shortcut. We thought about staying on an island for a little bit, for a break.
It was kind of scary.
I didn't understand why everyone was trying to look their best, even Beloit. We eventually did go to Grand Portage and I met a beautiful girl named Kennehwah.
It was really exciting but a little scary.
It was exciting to see Celeste again, but I was really happy to see my family! It was fun to chop wood again with my dad. I think I want to sign on again..
