What the postoffice would never expect....greenspun.com : LUSENET : Camp Lutherhaven : One Thread
Greetings and peace! I was wondering if camp needs any equipment for the off sight trip/overnighter trips? If so what? I was also wondering if it would be possible for you to send me a skunk so that I can officially say that Alaska has skunks? I would be willing to trade you a moose for one, since we have plenty of the

tora "the bannock queen" - we will only send you a skunk if you promise to chase after it... and you have to build us a fabulous fire on our overnighter for our hobo stew. is it a deal?

In response to tora's request for a skunk, I would like to propose, Tora, that you trade me a moose for the gila monster that lives in my back yard. or, you could have the dead rattle snake I found in my dryer. and if that wont persuade you, there is a scorpion nest under my house which I am sure that we would be delighted to include in the deal. oh, what do you feed a moose, and what is a huffamoose?! Peaceout Fil <><

Tora, all we have here in colorado are raccoons. They weigh up to 75 pounds though--not kidding, and live in the sewers on campus. One night I saw one while walking home with some friends and tried to pet it bc I thought it was a kitty. wrong. the thing almost bit my arm off. Come to think of it, there IS a skunk you could have. One lived outside my sorority and during rush it sprayed all the girls. It was pretty exciting! I'll see what I can do. kr

Well, I am sure that skunk is still lurking under the cabin and would not mind seeing other parts of the country. I know I sure would not mind it taking a mailing trip...but only if you promise to take good care of it and not throw it in the lake.

Speaking of mailing skunks, I have thought of something even more terrible to mail... Banick!! It would be worse than a letter bomb. One day you open your mailbox and theres this white powder in there waiting for you. I am sure you would get arrested, but hey, it would be fun to see the looks of disgust on people's faces when they opened their mailboxes to find not a tax refund but a bag of banick waiting... Seriously, it is a health hazard and as such we should share our wealth!
