Our Scoutmaster told us all to write to our parents in case you
saw the flood on TV and worried. We are OK. Only one of our
tents and two sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us
got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for
Chad when it happened.
Oh yes, please call Chad's mother and tell her that he's OK. He
can't write because of the cast. I got to ride on one of the
search and rescue jeeps. It was neat. We never would have found

ever see up there are logging trucks.
Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When
Dave dove in the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a
Also, Wade and I threw up. Scoutmaster Webb said it probably was
just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got
sick that way with the food they ate in prison.
I'm so glad he got out and became our scoutmaster. He said he
sure figured out how to get things done better while he was doing
I have to go now. We are going into town to mail our letters and
