    My scout master and his son were convicted of having sex with an underaged girl in 1965, I was lucky because I left that troop after a bycicle accident in 1962 that occured when we were racing bikes around the church parking lot. I was out of school for 3 days on that one........Jetspray

    scout trip

    rcvd this from a friend

    Dear Mom,


    Our Scoutmaster told us to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and got worried.

    We are okay. Only one of our tents and 2 sleeping bags got washed away.

    Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Adam when it happened.

    Oh yes, please call Adam's mother and tell her he is okay. He can't write because of the cast.

    I got to ride in one of the search and rescue Jeeps. It was great. We never would have found
    Adam in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning.


    Scoutmaster Ted got mad at Adam for going on a hike alone without telling anyone Adam
    said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him.


    Did you know that if you put gas on a fire, the gas will blow up?
    The wet wood didn't burn, but one of the tents did and also some of our clothes.

    Matthew is going to look weird until his hair grows back.

    We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Ted gets the bus fixed. It wasn't his fault about the crash. The brakes worked okay when we left. Scoutmaster Ted said that with a bus that old, you have to expect something to break down; that's probably why he can't get insurance.

    We think it's a super bus. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets
    us ride on the bumpers. It gets pretty hot with 45 people in a bus made for 24. He let us take
    turns riding in the trailer until the policeman stopped and talked to us.


    Scoutmaster Ted is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In fact, he is teaching Horace how to drive on the mountain roads where there aren't any cops. All we ever see up there are huge logging trucks.

    This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming out to the rapids.
    Scoutmaster Ted wouldn't let me because I can't swim, and Adam was afraid he would
    sink because of his cast (it's concrete because we didn't have any plaster), so he let us take
    the canoe out. It was great. You can still see some of the trees under the water from the flood.


    Scoutmaster Ted isn't crabby like some scoutmasters. He didn't even get mad about the
    life jackets. He has to spend a lot of time working on the bus so we are trying not to cause
    him any trouble.


    Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When Andrew dived into the
    lake and cut his arm, we all got to see how a tourniquet works.


    Steve and I threw up, but Scoutmaster Ted said it was probably just food poisoning from
    the left-over chicken. He said they got sick that way with 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 his time. By the way, what is a pedal-file?


    I have to go now. We are going to town to post our letters and buy some more beer and ammo.

    Don't worry about anything. We are fine and tonight it's my turn to sleep in the Scoutmaster's tent.

    be safe
