I'm setting off on an adventure of my very own, just like my father did when he was my age. I am so excited!
I have a ton of blisters, and my brigade is teasing me about getting homesick. I am starting to get second thoughts.
We have faced the rapids today! My brigade decided to go straight through the rapids, because they didn't want to unload everything. I was so scared! We hit a huge rock, and some damage was done to our canoe, but we fixed it.
We decided to go across the river. It was really dangerous! We got hit by a huge wave, and our whole canoe was filled with icy cold water. We got as much out as we could, and carried on. The strong winds were rocking the boat back and forth, and my whole brigade got sea sick!
It was so awesome to finally get here! It is so much different then I imagined.
I have decided to return home, because I miss my family. I'm going to return in the spring, because I'm hoping for another adventure!
