Not sure if this was posted before, or if I was even the one to post it lol


Dear Mom & Dad,

Our Scoutmaster told us to write to our parents in case you saw the
flood on TV and are worried. We are okay. Only one 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 okay. He can't write because of the cast. I got to
ride in one of the search and rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never
would have found Chad in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning.
Scoutmaster Don 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 will blow up? The wet wood didn't burn, but one of the
tents did and also some of our clothes. David is going to look weird
until his hair grows back.

We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Don gets the car fixed.
It wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes worked okay when
we left. Scoutmaster Don said that with a car that old you have to
expect something to break down; that's probably why he can't get
insurance. We think it's a neat car. He doesn't care if we get it
dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets us ride on the fenders. It
gets pretty hot with 10 people in a car.
He let us take turns riding in the trailer until the highway patrol man
stopped and talked to us. Scoutmaster Don is a neat guy. Don't
worry, he is a good driver. In fact, he is teaching Terry how to
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 Don 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 Don
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 dived into the lake
and cut his arm, we got to see how a Tourniquet works. Wade and
I threw up, but Scoutmaster Don said it probably was just food
poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way
with food they ate in prison. I'm so glad he got out and became our
scoutmaster. He said he sure figured out how to get things done
better while he was doing his time. By the way, what is a pedal-file?

I have to go now. We are going to town to mail our letters and buy
Vaseline. Don't worry about anything we are fine.

Love, Timothy
