(Chunkie)

Had some discussion about accuracy of journal concerning Chunkie finding beer floating down river. This story is logged twice in journal – Trip 2 and trip 17. We finally figured out that it happened on trip 2 before we started official journal. We were recounting it on trip 17, hence the second log entry. (Radar)

Trip 26: Fri-Sun Aug 6-8, 2004

Posted in: Charlie by Radar on August 8, 2004

Mudhole 2- Munchkin 0

Who: Munchkin, Radar, Chunkie, Mayor Rooster, Tucker
Site: Camp Charlie
Weather: Clear – Highs 80, Low 50,
Menu: Polish sausage, stick bologna, baked beans, chips, cookies.

Munchkin became Mayor in a bloodless coup de etat Friday. Rooster was proclaimed ‘Mayor Emeritus.’ First trip for complete core group this year and first for the new upgrade to 3 new sleeping tents. Chunkie & Munchkin 12’x14′ with screen porches and a Swiss Gear 10×12 belonging to Radar. Radar served dinner Friday. Steak Bologna with trimmings. Chunkie did brunch – same. Rooster prepared his top secret recipe dinner Saturday – Dutch oven baked beans with polish sausage, onion & seasonings. This was done after Rooster throttled up – he was slow moving Sat morning. Friday’s beer and Beam may have had something to do with that. (Chunkie)

Radar made a float in inflatable Kayak 1 hour 20 min from low water bridge. Near catastrophic event happened while indisposed – major repairs undertaken (duct tape) Cool for Aug. All had light jacket in evening. Heavy morning fog. Second night in new tent for me (Radar)

All enjoyed scooter ride on my ‘Yammazukie’ – probable last trip for this scooter. Warden by to check on things. Campsites cleaner as a result of his recent supervision. This being election year – in keeping with same theme – I unanimously voted myself kingpin of camp Charlie. Rooster’s administration lacking in purveyance of ‘nekid wimmen and Boudin cajun sausage. Declared time for new blood. I stand on the campaign platform of a chicken in every pot. Fine trip – a good time was had by all. (Munchkin)

Me again – Chunkie wanted an entry about he and I almost crossing over to see Marilyn and Elvis. Erie lights in the west last am convinced us they were on the way. A weak transponder is all that kept us from being beamed up. Maybe next time… Having arrived first on Friday I left a message on the main road posting tree ‘Rooster-Chunkie- Charlie’ Would you believe it took them 20 min to figure out what I meant. I was told to be more specific next time. (Radar)

Sunday morning Munchkin and his four wheeler had a contest with the long mud ditch in front of Camp Charlie. Final score – Mudhole 2 – Munchkin 0. Pics and video of this available for nominal fee. (Rooster)

New gazebo in use. Bumble Bee caught 6 smallmouth down around cave. Munchkin was here alone two weeks ago – Kayaked, fished, went to phone booth lookout and called Mayor at work asking where everyone was. Mixed up date – gag… Chunkie – honeydos at home – painting, Mayor to Arkansas.
Forgot stratolounger, not a relaxing trip. Coon on chuckwagon – ate Chunkie’s cool cup. Duke helped himself to leftover chicken. Chunkie’s theme song ‘He’s in the big house now’ He moped around all Sat. finally came to life that evening. The word for the day – ‘Moderation’ (Munchkin)

Trip 23: Fri-Sun Oct 9-11, 2003

Posted in: Alpha by Radar on October 9, 2003

Who: Chunkie, Mayor, Munchkin, Joe Steward, Bumble Bee, Jeff Thomason, Duke, Tucker.

Site: Alpha

Menu: Breakfast w/Gravy, Boston Butt, Baked Potatos

Weather: Overcast – 65-70 deg. Nice outdoor wx.

Joe’s first trip up. Duke and Tucker had to get re-acquainted. Radar missed trip – laid up with Montezuma’s revenge. Since he was supposed to be bringing a load of wood from his lot we wound up with only wet wood to burn. Munchkin wanted to celebrate Octoberfest with Bloody Marys. Chunkie politely declined.

Saturday morning everyone was ‘throttled back’ enjoying the serenity of the woods and the ambience of a nice campfire when Joe asked ‘Is this all y’all do?’ Munchkin replied ‘pretty much,’ to a raucous outpouring from the rest of the group.

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.
