      I remember this one trip...

      I can't remember the name of the camp, but I know it wasn't PMI or Lenhoksin, it was the one where the Boy Scouts had to cook their own food.  Well long story short. All of the older scouts were away on a day trip, and all of the younger scouts and the adult leaders were going to go on a tubing trip down this river.  Well..so we got to this old abandoned warehouse place which was the starting point, and we waited there 3 hours, and nobody showed, finally we got a leader to hitchhike to the nearest camp, and he called the office, and they sent the tubing people over to wherre we were.  So we finally set off, at around like 5:30 pm, this was supposed to be a 3 hour trip.  Well anyways..the water was kind slow cuz it hadn't rained, and then to make it worse, the tubes...some of them deflated..and then it started getting dark...and we weren't anywhere near the exit..
      So we got off of the river, walked a little ways, and we found a road, and walked to this like area where we would be safe on the shoulder.  So there we were 15 young scouts three adult leaders in just our pairs of swim trunks with a pile of tubes lying on the road next to us, huddled together cuz it had gotten cold, and we would occassionally see a car pass by..slow down...gawk at us..and then continue on..well finally the BSA truck drove past us, and he like slammed on his brakes, and was like..THANK GOD...we almost called the police...

      HAHAHHAA..it was the most hilarious thing...
      Needless to say though..we weren't happy campers..LITERALLY!!!
