Dear Mum,

Our Scoutmaster told us to write

to our parents in case you saw

the flood on TV and got 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 Adam when it happened.

Oh yes, please call Adam'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 great. We never would

have found Adam in the dark

if it hadn't been for the


Scoutmaster Ted got mad at

Adam for going on a hike alone

without telling anyone. Adam

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


Matthew is going to look weird

until his hair grows back.

We will be home on Saturday

if Scoutmaster Ted gets the

bus fixed. It wasn't his fault

the crash.

The brakes worked

okay when we left. Scoutmaster

Ted said that with a bus that

old, you have to expect


to break down; that's probably

why he can't get insurance.

We think it's a super bus. He

doesn't care if we get it dirty,

and if it's hot, sometimes he

lets us ride on the bumpers.

It gets pretty hot with 45

people in a bus made for 24.

He let us take turns riding

in the trailer until the

policeman stopped and talked

to us.

Scoutmaster Ted is a neat guy.

Don't worry, he is a good driver.

In fact, he is teaching Horace

how to drive on the mountain

roads where there aren't any

cops. All we ever see up there

are huge logging trucks.

This morning all of the guys

were diving off the rocks and

swimming out to the rapids.

Scoutmaster Ted wouldn't let

me because I can't swim, and

Adam was afraid he would sink

because of his cast (it's

because we didn't

have any plaster),

so he let us take the canoe

out. It was great. You can

still see some of the trees

under the water from the flood.

Scoutmaster Ted 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 bus so we are trying

not to cause him any trouble.

Guess what? We have all

passed our first aid merit

badges. When Andrew dived

into the lake and cut his arm,

we all got to see how a


Steve and I threw up, but

Scoutmaster Ted said it was

probably just food poisoning

from the left-over 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


I have to go now. We are going

to town to post our letters and

buy some more beer and ammo.

Don't worry about anything.

We are fine and tonight it's

my turn to sleep in the

Scoutmaster's tent.

signed your Loving Son.
