Trip 22: Wed-Sun Aug 20-24, 2003

Posted in: Bravo by Radar on August 20, 2003

Who: Chunkie, Tucker, Munchkin, Mayor, Red T., Radar, Gary K.
Site: Bravo Wed-Fri… Alpha Fri-Sun
Menu: Beans, Steaks, Chuck Roast, Baked Taters, Snacks.
Weather: Hot, Humid, No Rain

Chunkie and Munchkin spent Wed and Thurs nights at Bravo. A flip of the coin revealed we needed to move to camp Alpha. We loaded erected tents on trucks and trailers and moved Clampet style to new site Friday. Red and the Mayor arrived during the move. Chunkie went to rope swing with Munchkin who was trying to learn ‘Eskimo roll’ in his kayak – to no avail. Radar and Gary arrived late afternoon and Radar declared luau night. Oldie goldies going full blast on two truck radios. Everyone was roused out of bed to participate by decree of the Mayor. A fun time was had by all. (Munchkin)

Red T. left Saturday to go to his place at Wappappello. Rooster told him the short way was Route O to Route K then left to Annapolis and down 49 and through Sam A Baker park to Highway 34 and Greenville. That would only take about an hour and a half instead of two and a half around US-60. It wound up taking six hours since Red turned right instead of left on Route K and wound up back at Ellington, then tried a shortcut on H or HH ?? to Piedmont. None of the shortcuts worked out as planned and it was almost dark when he got to the lake.

Trip 18: Fri-Tue Oct 11-15, 2002

Posted in: Bravo by Radar on October 11, 2002

Who: Radar, Gary Kitchen, Munchkin, Rooster. (Chunkie couldn’t come because of knee)

Site: Camp Bravo

Weather: Fog & mist Fri, warm Sat, light rain.

Menu: Bratwurst, beef stew, pork steak, grilled chicken, big breakfast Sunday.

Rooster took Friday off, stopped for groceries and arrived at 2:30pm. Radar and Gary arrived 6pm. Rooster and Radar had coon watch till 3:30am. Made rock and wood run Sat A.M. Munchkin arrived noon Sat.(Rooster)

Rooster & Radar took dip in riverbend hole. Air temp 55deg but water wasn’t bad once you get used to it. After eating a round of the Mayor’s famous stew everyone decided that was enough for Sat night’s supper. We were sitting around campfire doing some serious world problem solving when we all heard something that sounded like a truck coming from the West. The problem here is that there is no road in from the West. As the sound got closer we could see that it was a truck coming right down the middle of the river. When it got straight out from camp we determined it to be a new or very late model Ford extended cab pickup. We all decided that Daddy was probably making the payments on this truck. From the shouts and yelling we could tell it was loaded with teenagers. We don’t need to elaborate on our thoughts of their mental condition or what caused it. We called it a night early because of the rain (and last night’s coon watch?) (Radar)

Bacon, P Sausage, eggs, taters and bisquits for Sunday breakfast. Windy, Sunny, 45 deg Sunday am. (Rooster)

This was my first trip with the infamous Black River gang. It certainly won’t be my last. Other than the afore mentioned unprovoked u-boat attack, the trip was without incident and a good time was had by all. (Gary K)

Radar and Gary left at noon Sunday. Munchkin and Rooster made a wood run. Pork Steak and half baked taters w/slaw for supper. Frost and 25 deg Mon. am. Ask Munchkin about the bear. Cardinals lost N.L. Championship to S.F. Giants. Packed and left Tue am. (Rooster)
