I became a Voyageur because my dad was hurt and my family needed money. So i went to the post and asked if i could become a Voyageur and they said yes. In Lachine I had to leave behind my family,friends and classmates.
After leaving St. Annes I felt really sad after seeing all of the crosses for the Voyageurs. I get along with everyone except for Beloit. My muscles and blisters hurt really bad and I can't move my hands because of my blisters. I am homesick and I would rather be in class doing homework then being a Voyageur.
My brigade decided to run the rapids!The ride was crazy,fun and I was very nervous because it was my first time going down the rapids.La Londe fell into the rapids and we couldn't find him so we made a cross out of his paddle and Mc Kay said a few words.
