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


lightning.




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

about
the crash.


The brakes worked



okay when we left. Scoutmaster



Ted said that with a bus that



old, you have to expect


something  


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

concrete
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

tourniquet
works.




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


pedal-file?




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.
