Letter from Camp

Dear Mom & Dad:

We are having a great time here at Lake Typhoid. Scoutmaster Webb is
making us all write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and
worried. We are OK. Only 1 of our tents and 2 sleeping bags got washed
away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the
mountain looking for Chad when it happened. Oh yes, please call Chad's
mother and tell her he is OK. He can't write because of the cast. I got to
ride in one of the search & rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have
found him in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning. Scoutmster Webb
got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Chad said
he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him.
Did you know that if you put gas on a fire, the gas can will blow up? The
wet wood still didn't burn, but one of our tents did. Also some of our
clothes. John is going to look weird until his hair grows back. We will be
home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Webb gets the car fixed. It wasn't his
fault about the wreck. The brakes worked OK when we left. Scoutmaster Webb
said that a car that old you have to expect something to break down; that's
probably why he can't get insurance on it. We think it's a neat car. He
doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if its hot, sometimes he lets us ride
on the tailgate. It gets pretty hot with 10 people in a car. He let us
take turns riding in the trailer until the highway patrolman stopped and
talked to us. Scoutmaster Webb is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good
driver. In fact, he is teaching Terry how to drive. But he only lets him
drive on the mountain roads where there isn't any traffic. All we ever see
up there are logging trucks. This morning all of the guys were diving off
the rocks and swimming out in the lake. Scoutmaster Webb wouldn't let me
because I can't swim and Chad was afraid he would sink because of his cast,
so he let us take the canoe across the lake. It was great. You can still
see some of the trees under the water from the flood. Scoutmaster Webb
isn't crabby like some scoutmasters. He didn't even get mad about the life
jackets. He has to spend a lot of time working on the car so we are trying
not to cause him any trouble. Guess what? We have all passed our first aid
merit badges. When Dave dove in the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how
a tourniquet works. Also Wade and I threw up. Scoutmaster Webb said it
probably was just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. I have to go
now. We are going into town to mail our letters and buy bullets. Don't
worry about anything. We are fine.


P.S. How long has it been since I had a tetanus shot?
