Not the Year to be a Boy Scout

I just saw on Yahoo that another boy scout has been killed camping. Is this a common thing. It seems like every other week there is some group, leader, hanger on getting it. I'm kind of glad that I hung up my cap a few years ago. Don't like my chances, especially with my sort of luck.

However I am off camping. I can only hope this spree has finished and I will be safe in the mountains. I am not really familiar with the North American flora and fauna. My only knowledge is what I gleaned from such nature programmes as Flipper, Rin Tin Tin and the Littlest Hobbo.

So you see that my survival skills are going to be somewhat lacking. I do consider myself an enthusiastic nature lover, but that doesn't really carry over into my woodsman skills. I did manage to make a small fire out of coconuts when I wore the cap, but I am not sure there are going to be that many of them around, if it should get that cold.

Well I do have a couple of days before I go so I should be able to get a crash course in the things I should know from AdultFriendFinder. If you have any sage advise I am all ears. I do hope to return at the end of the weekend. Oh, that's right I did see that terrific movie Grizzly, I think starring Lee Majors.

Bear approaches play dead, don't run, and don't play with the cubs. Am I right?

Dang...Am I going to have to teach you everything??? lol.....

Boyscout/girlscout tip: Dip your matches in wax so that they won't get soggy if it rains.

Keep food in the vehicles if you can; if the bears find them, they'll ravish through them.

Take your own toilet paper....and some Immodium just in case you get the runs. Nothing like being out in nature and having the runs.... lol...

Don't believe everything you saw on Flipper, Rin Tin Tin and Littlest Hobo....or even Grizzly Adams. They were made in the days of of Beaver and Wally and everything was picture perfect!!!

Do be careful and have fun!!!!
