After lunch our leaders reenacted the moment in the expedition when Lewis was accidentally wounded by Cruzatte.


"Damn you, Cruzatte, you have shot me."


"No Way, Mon Capitaine, I shot ze elk. Oh, oh, you look like ze elk Please forgive me.


All right, Cruzatte, I forgive you. But...I won't turn the other cheek.
