Who: Munchkin, Mayor, Radar, Bumble Bee, Duke
Site: Bravo - Alpha - Bravo
Menu: Bologna stick, Polish sausage, Taco soup, West Fork pot roast.
Weather: Clear 68/28 Thu. 78/36 Fri. 80/38 Sat. Light wind.
Summary: Munchkin arrived first about 4pm Thu. After setting up camp heard Mayor & Radar pulling up. The silly bxxtards waved, circled toward Camp Charlie & headed out to Alpha. Daylight fading. Walked down road thinking I'd head them off before they made it out to road. Saw them up on Alpha road already. Ran hollering and waving to get their attention. Too much effort for an old man. Retreated to camp and hopped on scooter and made for Alpha. Told them I was here first & I wasn't changing camps. - Munchkin
Now... the rest of the story. Munchkin had said he was coming up Friday, so Rooster & Radar thought someone else beat us to the campsite. Therefore we were going to Alpha as second choice to wait for Munchkin to arrive tomorrow. All was settled and we encamped at Bravo. Mini Luau Thu night till about 2am.
Friday made early wood run. Made calls from lookout and left Chunkie a voice mail at work. Bumble Bee and Duke arrived about 6pm. Taco soup for supper. Bed 11:30pm. Someone has cut about three trees around Bravo site. Will hurt shade eventually.
Saturday big breakfast. First bisquits in Radar's new propane camp oven. Bumble Bee fished - no luck. West Fork pot roast in double roastpan over campfire for supper. Great day. - Rooster
Radar took a quick bath in river Sat am. Rooster went in knee deep, froze out and took pan bath. Radar went mushroom hunting but had same luck as Lee's fishing trip. Thought I should mention coyotes this trip. Heard two different packs several times. Sometimes only 200 yards, or so, from camp. - Munchkin
My first addition to the journal but far from my 1st trip. Make it a point to fish every time I come up. Fish aren't anything like they used to be, but I still enjoy the solitude. Saw the biggest grey squirrel I've ever seen in my life. I've seen more squirrels this trip (six or eight) than I've seen around here in a long time. Now if they would just go round up the goggle eyes. - Bumble Bee
Sunday morning note: Radar birthday (64) today. Got up and found a honey bun with a lit eight hour candle and a styrofoam cup with "Happy Birthday" written on side. Also solved quart jar mystery. I found a jar half full of something inside my sleeping bag when setting up Thursday. Everyone trying to figure out why I had a quart jar of something in my sleeping bag. This morning I remembered a buddy giving me a jar of honey during deer season last year. I forgot about it and it turned into greasy looking sugar mass over winter months. Also need to mention a birthday present from Munchkin. A small viewing stone. Some people would call it a rock.
