Search and Rescue has been out with search dogs looking for the scoutmaster. They have found several very minimalist camps and the trail has lead them all over the south ridge and deep into the national forest. It’s almost as if this guy doesn’t want to be found. So, he seems to be alive and doing pretty good for himself.
When news of this reached The Council of Old Guys, a betting pool started to see when he’d be found, why he was running, and what state he’d be in when he showed up. Currently, the even money is on “Two weeks / Suburban Malaise / Looking like Christian Bale from The Machinist.” If you want to get in on this, Buster is closing all bets at 3:00 PM on Friday, so head down to Stumpy’s and take a look at the slate.
