Too much work.  Use script(1):
$ script /tmp/session.log
$ (do a bunch of stuff)
$ exit

And session.log will contain everything.  Including control characters, 
so edit it before posting.

This is in the Handbook somewhere, but a quick look didn't find it, so:

# mount -t msdosfs /dev/da0s1 /mnt

That assumes there is a FAT filesystem in the first partition of the 
memory stick, a common setup.  Please don't use NTFS.
