P.S. I hated the life along the trail and I thought Lewis and Clark were crazy. When we got a ways up the Missouri River, I left camp late one night to try to get back to civilization. But the captains sent George Drouillard back to track me down. He found me and brought me back to camp, where I was dishonorably discharged. I was sent back to St. Louis in disgrace on the keelboat in 1805, and never heard from again.
