Camping Rule #51


Camping Rule #51


Before I let you all go back to your campsites, there are two things!

First of all, there is a chance of thunderstorms this evening so pull in all of your gear.

Second, I’d like to speak to all newbie campers.  The second, third and, fourth year campers want me to remind you about the use of the outhouses at night.  The search is still on for Bobby Rigsby.

A member of last week’s campers, Bobby disappeared somewhere between his tent and the outhouse last Wednesday during the rainstorm.  There was a report of a green glow emanating from the storm cloud that made contact with the ground about the time Bobby went missing.

Most of the experienced campers know that aliens like to pick you up at night and silently watch the well-traveled paths between the campsites and the outhouses.  If you must use a flashlight when heading out, use the flash button sparingly. The steady stream of light from your flashlight is a dead giveaway.

When you make your attempt, be sure to travel as fast as you can.  Apparently, the aliens can track the sound of heavy footsteps in the rain.  Once inside the outhouse, you’ll be safe while you’re inside and until you’ve finished.  When leaving the outhouse, we advise you to leave the door open for the next camper so they won’t have to stop to open the door.

Are there any questions?

Well then, I’ll assume you all understand!

Don’t forget, there’s plenty of left over sodas for you in the cooler.  Take what you’d like on the way out.

Have a good night!
