Too many questions

Friday, April 05, 2013 - Updated: 10:02 PM

Dear Cris,

I was hiking back to my favorite lake to get to my favorite spot on that big rock where I used to catch fish. I had my fish pole and worms. I sat there a spell watching chipmunks. I didn't put the pole in the water because there aren't any fish any more.

I must have fallen asleep dreaming of old days with my dog Hiney. The next thing I knew, kersplash, I was in the lake. Well I crawled out and here come these two guys, well dressed, who asked where I was going. I said I'm going to camp to dry my hiney out.

They said, 'Camp, you can't have a camp you can only camp three days and carry stuff back out.' I didn't dare tell them about camp my ancestors had by Hiney Mountain.

I had two fungi in my pack. They said, 'Put them back or get a ticket. What are you doing with a fish pole, there's a season you know.' I said yes, I had heard of fall and spring.

They asked me again where I was going. I didn't dare tell them Hiney Mountain so I said Speculator.

I got to thinking I'd better tell people you can't fish, camp or collect fungus, or those guys will interrogate you on where you are going and what you are doing.
