2018-07-23 Day 1. Presqu'ile camping. Arrival.

d485-190
18-07-23 - Look, up in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? ... No, it's a flying tent. Wind conditions sometimes lift an unanchored tent off the ground.

18-07-23 - I've got my Boy Scout badge ... Fire worker's qualification. Something about rubbing two dry sticks together? Or maybe it was ...

d485-016
18-07-23 - Rubbing two hind legs together to start a fire. Or was that about the grasshopper mating-call for the junior entomologist badge? ... Merle says it's easier if one of the sticks is a match. Why is everybody looking at me?
