I don't like going to school I wish I could be a works-men or voyager so I could earn money for my family because my dad chops off his thumb all because I was to lazy to get up. Even though I will Leave behind my family and all of my belongings I would rather do something to earn money.
Now that I am a middleman I will work hard and get money for my family so my dad. The first few hours my body was aching with pain all of my muscles hurt and my back. I kind of get along with the other brigade they all call grandpa I guess I will hold up hopefully.
The first set of rapids where tough they had to pull the boat along the shore through the rapids. Some of the men had carry heavy loads of supplies on the shore out of the boat I and others had to stand in the ice cold water to pull the boat so it won't hit rocks.
Then we entered Lake Superior it is a very big lake it has a large body of water it seemed like it took forever to cross. We took a shortcut that reduces the trip by 20 miles. Then it started to rain and thunder and lightning came very quickly there were very big waves It was very hard to get through it then it got so bad we had to board up on a island to take shelter in till it ends.
Finally I have arrived at the North West Trading company my whole body was sore from the trip. There where a lot of trees especially birch trees and Indians that wore funky clothes and they make many good quality things. I meant the leader and his daughter who only spoke french but very pretty.
I finally arrived home and it feels great to be with my family again. I think I will be sighing up next spring and returning to Lachine to see Kennewah and also to be with the crew again and my Dad might come with me. It will feel good to be on the canoe again I will be sore but I think I am used to it I think that is the real character of me.
