    here it is


    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 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. Matthew 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 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. If it's hot, sometimes
    he
    >lets us ride on the fenders. It gets pretty hot with 45 people in a
    bus
    >made for 24. 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
    aren't
    >any cops. All we ever see up there are logging trucks.
    >
    >This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming
    out to
    >the rapids. Scoutmaster Keith wouldn't let me because I can’t swim
    and Adam
    >was afraid that 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 Keith 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 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.
    >
    >I have to go now. We are going to town to mail our letters & buy some
    more
    >beer and ammo
    >
    >Don't worry about anything. We are fine.
    >
    >Love, Jimmie
