Diary entry 1 I'm leaving Lachine tomorow to start my adventure as a voyaguer. I'm leaving my mother, father, and sister. My brother is a steersman! I hope I'm in his brigade. I also have a dog named Spot coming with.
Diary entry 2 I'm holding up after the first day but my hands are bleeding and dinner was awful, but at St. Annes it was a good break. My brigade is fun and all but I'm not with my brother.
Diary entry three We hit our first rapids, but played it safe and went around. The bags were so heavy and I carried 3
Diary Entry 4 Lake Superior is a pain in my but It takes so long to get across and it's starting to rain. We are taking the safe way by hugging the edge but it's longer. I had an idea go across the middle!
Diary Entry 5 The RENDEZVOUS, Finally. We just got to Grand Portage. When I saw I freaked out i'm so excited to party and go home.
Diary entry 6 I made it home and I'm so excited to eat something besides boiled corn and pig fat. I'm excited to see my family and I loved being a voyaguer but I hated it at the same time.
