    Well, no gorgeous waterfall or roaring creek or a meadow full of beautiful wildflowers. Dez’s goal was simple – just be quiet and be one with Mother Nature. I grew up on the mountains – my parents owned a cabin. We also went camping often. Dad was an avid fisherman and I accompanied him on his boat and swam around the boat in the lake while he fished. I caught crayfish with bail and nets. Do you know salt kills crayfish? Once a crayfish clawed the baby finger of a little kid and she cried and cried and nobody could figure how to get it off. Dad went to his camper and came back with a can of Morton salt, poured it on the crayfish and it fell off and died. I took some tadpoles from the lake and watched it turn into baby frogs. Dad made me take them back to the lake and release them. I caught a mama horned toad before she had babies in my shoebox. Mom was furious but dad said I had to keep it in the box for a little while because the mama would have had her babies in a safe place in nature but I took her home so it was my responsibility now (I’m not sure if he was correct, though). So many memories. Luann and Bernice need to experience real nature rather than sitting and dozing. It is a nice hour-long break from civilization but they did not quite experience nature.

    Why would you leave to car wide open like that? Food just sitting there? They are fortunate that the only nuisance they encountered were squirrels. Bears like free snacks as well. The up side to all of this is they will have a story to share for years to come over beer and pizza.

    One of my customers I’ve delivered food to about half a dozen times, we’ve texted extensively, yet I’ve never met her in person because I always end up delivering late and leaving the food at her front door (her family turns in early and she doesn’t want them disturbed). Since her place is out in the boonies, I initially worried about coyotes finding the stuff before she could get to it, then realized that wasn’t the biggest risk.

    Coyotes are kind of picky about what they’ll eat. Javelinas, on the other hand, will go for just about anything.

    Well, the hatchback door is open and, hopefully, there is no surprise waiting for them – like a bear or some other animal – raccoon, skunk (now that would be fitting – nature “providing” its own “sweet perfume”).

    “Hey, great idea! Let’s walk off for an hour of nature-appreciation and leave the car unlocked and wide open. Really cool, right?”

    Actually, this happened to me. We left a melon on the camping table for diner later. When we got back from fishing for a few hours, we found the melon had a golfball-size hole in the side and was completely hollowed out. We suspect it was chipmunks ( not Alvin and his boys).

    Don’t blame the wildlife. The blame goes to those who have no clue how to survive in the wild. In fact, if they had left their car door wide open like that in “civilization” they still would’ve lost their stuff, albeit to less worthy creatures.

    The exact same thing happened to me. Back in the 70s I was a part of a group of middle schoolers camping at the base of Mt. Ranier. We left our unpacked backpacks at the campsite for a couple of hours while we went exploring. When we returned, we found that marmots (woodchucks) had invaded the camp and chewed holes in each backpack to get the food not in tin cars. It was an interesting lesson that bears were not the only woodland creature that might want your food.

    Looking like we may be seeing the end of this arc, don’t know how much more G&K can take this one past getting the team home and talking about things. Ok, maybe another week if he wants to push Bernice further (let’s hope not!). Next arc Shannon?!? or are we back to Gun and Bets or Tiffany and work, or Luann and “dating”. How about a non sequitur moment like Mr. Gray and Gun’s mom or something with the firestation or the Fuse.

    You know, it looks bad, but the only food the squirrels appear to have gotten was the trail mix – the clothes are scattered but apparently intact – it’s a mess, but one that can be cleaned up. The trip should continue tomorrow – with further hitches, to be sure.

    They know virtually nothing about camping. The first rule of thumb is don’t leave out supplies where critters can get access to it. Second rule of thumb is not to abandon your campsite. This is not going to end well.

    GnK have only one day to save the episode. They missed the opportunity to have one or more of the trio running from something screaming “Eek!” – clothed or unclothed. No skinny-dipping. No after dark sequence… yet? No noises in the night. No caught in a sudden downpour. According to brother BJShipely1 there should be at least one near death panel!

    Is there a bear anywhere near? Squirrels are quite aggressive, but being able to open a closed cooler would be a stretch. Possible, but not likely. But there is so much projection here I will not participate, this arc has a point, and how it relates to real world camping is not it. I don’t think the arc is over though, how they recover, are there more “suprises” and will they be rescued? I STILL think Jack, Nil, and Tara will show up.

    A couple days ago, someone (roz or cap9?) said that the purpose of this arc was to ridicule these women. I could not agree more.

    I expressed the fear, again, a couple days ago, that Dez, in particular, was going to be singled out for “punishment for her exuberance,” I think I said.

    Today, G&K have done it again: Enough ammunition for just about everyone to conclude that these three should never have left the comforts of home.

    Along with plenty of commentators declaring that these three should put their tails between their legs and run for their lives.

    It’s interesting that Dez learned the absolute wrong lesson here. She thought the glen taught them that nature will provide for someone who appreciates it, when actually the lesson was “stay alert and keep your wits about you, or your bad day will get worse.”

    At some point it stops being carefree optimism and starts being clueless self-delusion.

    Oh my…. I cannot believe that ALL THREE of these females were so unfocused to leave their stuff lying around and their vehicle open to the wildlife. This would be the “straw that broke the camel’s back” for me…. I would just head home if I were them…. IF their vehicle starts…. from their silly foolishness shown today…. they probably left the key in the ignition and the radio playing and the headlights on… or didn’t watch the gas gauge and it is well below “E”.

    If they do have vehicle troubles….. and presuming their “gizmos” have all ran out of energy by now…. this dynamic trio will make the folks from “Gilligan’s Island” seem like Rhodes Scholars in comparison. :)

    Many moons ago when I was in boy scouts, we camped at Devils Postpile in Calif (Google it, it’s a really cool place). Every night for the four days were there, literally hundreds of mice would overrun or camp. They got into everything. Some got stuck and died in our grease can, anything that wasn’t sealed in metal or hard plastic was fair game. When I went bed I had some candy in my parka pocket. When I woke up I had holes chewed through the pocket. The wiring and upholstery in my Dads VW bus was chewed to check. Ahhhhhh, good times.

    I suppose they can be thankful that the only thieves around are squirrels. But it looks like these little guys have eaten most of their trail mix. Will they now discover that they forgot to bring can opener so they can’t eat the stew? I’m hoping Dez doesn’t make some remark about foraging for food in the woods.

    So many people mentioned fried squirrel or squirrel soup. Now of course, the girls are lacking oil and a frying pan, fire and water, so all of that is off the menu. My only experience with squirrels is seeing them in a park. They’re pretty fast… they look cute as they’re foraging, then they see you and scamper up a tree. How hard is it (in real life) to catch one? I doubt that Luann and Co. can outrun them, and they can’t just reach out and grab one by hand. They did not bring BB guns or archery equipment (snicker, as if they could use such equipment to begin with). Using the resources they have, can they catch a squirrel using a noose trap? Make a cage trap by tying sticks together to make a cage and then use trail mix as bait? Throw a rock at one?
