From the desk of the Firedude
You have to remember in reading my stories of my genetically declined camping buddies are quite frequent and entertaining, at least for me. Yesterday morning a guy who had bought 4 bundles of wood the night before was at my door at 8 a.m. and told me “I have a stupid question for you”. From the look on his face I felt well assured he was telling the truth! He asks if I bought back unused firewood? I couldn’t resist and asked him how long it had burnt!? He looked at me weird and said no unused bundles. I said well I’ll give you 10 cents on the dollar meaning your $7 dollar bundle was worth 70 cents. He walked away shaking his head mumbling “I knew that was a dumb question to ask”.
Last night one of my genetically declined camping buddies decided he would enter a campers car (Honda Element) while the husband and wife were sleeping in the back with the hatch open. Now this was a guy here on a bicycle camping. I had noticed he had been roaming the campground earlier in the day which was odd. We only had maybe 8 of 81 sites occupied if that. Now this is a true example of my meaning genetically declined as this guy opens the drivers door, slides the drivers seat back so he could lean through, grab her purse, cell phone and small suitcase. In the process of course the seat hit the woman’s foot waking her and she screamed at her husband and the suspect leg bailed (ran off). A pretty brazen thing eh? Well pretty stupid at best.
Wait! It gets even better! Little did my genetically declined camping buddy realize he had just robbed an off duty cop! Well our buddy wound up being “transferred” to a different indoor campground and may be there for some time since the theft was a felony. You have to be stupid to rob someone to begin with, but real stupid to pick an off duty police officer! I was able to snap this shot of him just as he was told he was going to “Happy Land” (jail) to play volleyball!
We weren’t quite sure if he was happy or upset?? I guess the moral of the story is if you’re going to rob a fellow camper you should first ask if he’s a off duty police officer or not?. I love the smell of napalm in the morning! Camp hosting for me would be too boring and mundane if it weren’t for my genetically declined camping buddies. Wait there’s more, I promise. Stay tuned for part #3!
