Halloween safety tips (joke)

Halloween Safety Tips ...
If you happen to end up in a Halloween or horror movie, it is worthwhile to remember a few simple rules to help keep yourself healthy, happy and safe (in other words, not dead).
  • When it appears that you have killed the monster, NEVER check to see if it's really dead.
  • Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.
  • Do not search the basement, especially if the power has gone out.
  • If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they should not know, shoot them immediately. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. However, it will probably take several rounds to kill them, so be prepared. This also applies to kids who speak with somebody else's voice.
  • When you have the benefit of numbers, NEVER pair off or go alone. Hit the first person that says, "Let's split up."
  • As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell. It's just not that fun.
  • Never stand in, on, or above a grave, tomb, or crypt. This would apply to any other house of the dead as well.
  • If you're searching for something which caused a loud noise and find out that it's just the cat, GET OUT OF THERE ANYWAY!
  • If appliances start operating by themselves, do not check for short circuits; just get out.
  • Do not take ANYTHING from the dead.
  • If you find a town which looks deserted, there's probably a good reason for it. Don't stop and look around.
  • Don't fool with recombining DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you're doing.
  • If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or fall down at least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, despite the fact that you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.
  • If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, kill them immediately.
  • Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one), anywhere in Texas where chain saws are sold, the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine.
  • If your car runs out of gas at night on a lonely road, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help. If you think that it is strange you ran out of gas because you thought you had most of a tank, shoot yourself instead. You are going to die anyway, and most likely be eaten.
  • Beware of strangers bearing tools. For example: chain saws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawn mowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, or any devices made from deceased companions.
  • If you find that your house is built upon a cemetery, now is the time to move in with the in-laws. This also applies to houses that had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion, or had inhabitants who performed satanic practices.
  • Dress appropriately. When investigating a noise downstairs in an old house, women should not wear a flimsy negligee. And carry a flashlight, not a candle. Make that two flashlights!
  • Do not mention the names of demons around open flames, as these can flare suddenly. Be especially careful of fireplaces in this regard.
  • Do not go looking for witches in the Maryland countryside.

Also

When running from anything, it is easier to exit a building on the ground floor. Not the roof. If in a stairwell go down.

Very funny -

Brings up a question - I wonder if Halloween is observed in CG's? I know the kids are back in school then and probably not out camping, but do CG's hold Halloween dances, etc. for the adults?

Just asking -

Lake Darbonne State Park, over here in my neck of the woods, has an annual Halloween hayride the last Saturday of October each year. It is an event held for any/all kids...even those not staying in the park.

They outfit several 16 (or bigger) foot utility trailers with hay bales and place the kids (and the parents who wish to accompany) in them. They then pull it to the campground area and make the loops thru the camps. They stop in front of the camping spots and the campers will walk up to the trailers and place candy in the kids bags.(without the kids getting off the trailer).

After all of this, they pull the trailers back to the pavilion/parking area where it all started from, and they have another volunteer dressed up in costume awaiting. The kids then gather around (if they want) and listen to children-oriented Halloween stories. The park also provides the children with a goody bag too.

It goes over real big, and we had over a hundred children last year. Our group has already reserved our camping spots for this years event (spots 15,16,17,18, and 20 if anyone wants to join us). I still need to stock up on candy to give out, though.

I believe it is an event held by volunteers of the parks staff, and not an official state park sanctioned one.

That sounds like a wonderful thing to do - I imagine it is a lot of fun for the kids plus the campers who give candy to the kids. If this park staff does this on their own, then I can only think this must be a great CG to stay in. We might try it.

Hickory Hill in Bath NY has two Halloweenie weekends in October. The first one is in a couple of weeks. It's a little milder for the little kids. They have setup a haunted house and games. They have a corn maze in one of the nearby farmers fields. The kids go trick-or-treating. The weekend after is scarier for the bigger kids.

We were at a CG a couple of years ago and they did Halloween in July complete with haunted hay rides through the woods.
