    Since they can’t get a fire going, they’ll be having sushi.

    It’s unusual that the Sunday strip ties in with the dailies.

    And now you know the reason that Calvin’s dad insisted on this disaster of a camping trip. He’s trying to live vicariously through Calvin all the experiences he thinks HE got cheated out of as a kid!

    I’ve been thinking about this rain storm (too much). Remember that little kid who would never go home from the ball field no matter how hard it rained? Who do you think he grew up to be? You don’t think that Calvin’s dad has some zig zag yellow shirts in his closet, do you? Just sayin…

    Calvin’s dad fishing no matter what, or how bad, the weather is reminds me of some golfers.

    I think Calvin’s mam is deep, deep in the woods, stabbing trees, just so she doesn’t do anything she may later regret to Calvin’s dad.

    That’s where I would be if I were her.

    Silently stabbing . . .

    Wow. I understand dad’s mania, but to ignore his family’s intense unhappiness? Major dysfunctionality, and dire consequences later………What’s funny about this??

    The sun will probably come out just as they’re getting ready to leave!

    Sad that most of the comments are against this camping trip. An indication of just how spoiled we have all become.. Calvin’s dad is making he best of what nature is throwing at him.. and good for him!

    Normally, Calvin would love to learn how to gut anything - but not in the rain.

    Dad is right… A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work.

    Dad is doing this all wrong. Calvin should be out fishing with him on the lake, not left safe and dry in his tent. And learning to gut fish should be mandatory. That’s how my older brothers taught me to fish and camp. I think I have worse camping memories than Calvin will ever have.

    OK i am predicting the future he will say “well this was a rotten week lets go home” and it will stop raining and face palm in one of the further strips.

    So they didn’t have weather forecasts back then?

    Starting a fire is easy; the wood is only wet on the outside, so you peel the bark – presto chango, dry wood! Then you follow the same wood-size rules as for starting any fire – tinder, then toothpicks, matchsticks, pencils, broomhandles, and ending with baseball bats. Burn that to embers & start denaturing fish flesh.

    I first read this strip in the Calvin and Hobbes: Lazy Sunday Book. It’s a little confusing out of context.

    When I was in boot camp in the summer of 1969, it rained like cats and dogs all during our marksmanship training and testing, and I thought – ’What’s the point of this? The sights on our rifles are full of water, and we can’t possibly be shooting as well as we could on a clear day.’ And at some point it occurred to me that war is not often fought in ideal weather conditions, and we were learning to adjust to the weather. Well, it’s not just battles and wars, it’s life that has to often be lived in less than ideal weather condition, and until we acquire the infirmity of the Wicked Witch of the West, we can do an awful lot on a day that’s less than ideal. Dad knows that, and a real tiger would know that, but the knowledge hasn’t really passed down to Calvin just yet.

    What egos we can have, assuming everyone enjoys what we enjoy, because the “fact” that we enjoy those things makes them wonderful.

    @Citizens for a Canadian Republic Another thing – Fish don’t mind rain. It is often the best time to catch them.

    I’m sure Hobbes would love eating rotting, uncooked fish.

    Great, I’ve got the image of a fish being “gutted” in my mind now.

    Amusingly, what I miss about camping is being huddle in a tent with your best friend when it’s pouring down rain, and just talking… provided there’s no where you need to go at that moment.
