Dear Mom & Dad, 

Our Scoutmaster told us to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on 
TV and are worried. We are okay. 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 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 neat. We never 
would have found Chad in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning. 
Scoutmaster Don got mad at Chad for going on a hike alone without telling 
anyone. Chad 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. 

David is going to look weird until his hair grows back. We will be home on 
Saturday if Scoutmaster Don gets the car fixed. It wasn't his fault about the 
wreck. The brakes worked okay when we left. Scoutmaster Don said that with a 
car that old you have to expect something to break down; that's probably why 
he can't get insurance. 

This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming out in 
the lake. Scoutmaster Don wouldn't let me because I can't swim, and Chad was 
afraid he would sink because of his cast, so he let us take the canoe across 
the lake. It was great. You can still see some of the trees under the water 
from the flood. Scoutmaster Don 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 car so we are trying not to cause him any trouble. 

Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When Dave dived 
into the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a Tourniquet works. Wade and 
I threw up, but Scoutmaster Don said it probably was just food poisoning from 
the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way with food they ate in 

I'm so glad he got out and became our coutmaster. 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 mail our letters 
and buy Vaseline. Don't worry about anything. We are fine. 

Love, Timothy
