Sanibel goes to girls camp

My wife and I were called to be the cooks for our churches summer girls camp this year. They also asked us to bring our Alaskan Malamute, Max, along as a bear deterrent as there had been some bear sittings in the vicinity of the camp which is located near mount Nebo in the Wasatch mountains in Utah at about 8000 feet. Max was the hit of the camp and there was no bear sittings so I guess his marking every tree within several acres of camp worked. Getting this size trailer up there to camp was no easy task as we had three miles of forest roads and then very narrow roads and turns in camp itself. Unfortunately, I have several light scratches that now need to be polished out from driving thru the trees that over hung the roads in camp. We didn't have any hook ups but did manage to run an extension cord from the girls dorm room to the trailer so we did have 110 to run the lights, fans, etc. The heat wave hit up there also so during the afternoon it was cooler outside than inside the trailer, even with all the windows open and fans going. Fortunately it cooled off at night enough that we actually had to close the windows and turn off the fans. The trailer worked perfectly and everybody was very impressed with how luxurious it was. They were also impressed that I was able to get a trailer that large up there. Although I did have to borrow a hose twice to refill the water tanks. How about a 100 gallon water tank PT? When's the last time you saw a pile of fire wood that tall? We had approx 40 girls and in all total there were over 400 girls in camp. Fortunately we only cooked for our girls.

Here's a picture of Max along with the girls camp area. While Max didn't find any bears he did chase a chipmunk up a tree, so he felt he had fulfilled his responsibilities. Also, one night the leaders all dressed up as the Supremes and sang to the girls. They were a big hit needless to say.
