My name is Xander and I am leaving behind my mom and dad because my dad broke his right arm when he fell off his tractor and can't care for the crops so we can sell them for money we need. I am not happy about this situation.
My arms are tired, my hands have blisters and they are bleeding, I feel sore and tired and want to go home. My brigade for the most part is fine except a few people.
We were heading for the rapids and I heard " Demi charge, Demi charge". I was exited to run my first rapids. The ride down the rapids was unbelievable, there was wind in my face, the wind felt good against my skin, what a ride!
Crossing Lake Superior was amazing, seeing the sunset made my eyes bulge out of my face it was that amazing. We didn't want to get to risky so we paddled close to the shore, but still crazy.
Seeing Grand Portage in the distance made me feel proud knowing I came this far and would get a rest soon. I am a little frightened for the portage, I am not sure how my muscles will hold up.
Although this journey was fun in the end I am returning home to see my mom and dad and how his arm is holding up. I am planning to return to being a farmer and care for the crops.
