    Dear Mom And 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 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 neat.

    We never would have found Adam in the dark if it hadn't been for the
    lightning. Scoutmaster Keith 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. Mathew is going to look weird until his
    hair grows back.

    We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Keith gets the bus fixed. It
    wasn't his fault about the wreck.The brakes worked okay when we left.

    Scoutmaster Keith 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 neat bus. He doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if
    it's hot, sometimes he lets us ride on the fenders.

    It gets pretty hot with 45 people in a bus. He let us take turns riding
    in the trailer until the highway patrol man stopped and talked to us.

    Scoutmaster Keith is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In
    fact, he is teaching Jessie how to drive on the mountain roads where
    there isn't any traffic. All we ever see up there are logging trucks.

    This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming
    out in the lake.Scoutmaster Keith wouldn't let me because I can't swim,
    and Adam 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 Keith isn't crabby like some scoutmasters.

    He didn't even get mad about there not being any 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 got to see how a tourniquet
    works. Steven and I threw up, but Scoutmaster Keith said it probably
    was just food poisoning from the leftover 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 mail our letters and buy some
    more beer. Don't worry about anything.

    We are fine.
    Love, Chris
