THE WOLF CREEK GAZETTE,  A JOURNAL OF GROUCHO MARXISM


 

Brushy Bob is
Miss Adventure's bedraggled but loyal sidekick.
A humorist by trade, he specializes in ill-humor.
He is wanting in both a sense of direction 
and geography, assuring  even Miss Adventure's  most mundane treks become cliff-hangers.
In fact, his closet is full of cliff-hangers (next to the skeletons).

Miss Adventure & the
episode at Ahjumawi
Or how Adventure Girl 
became Miss Adventure
Carefully set down 
from the diaries of Miss Adventure.

RAT FARM -East of Mount Shasta on the Modoc Plateau there is an obscure waterway named Ahjumawi Lava Springs State Park  described as a paddlers’ paradise.
Since we happened to be in the market for some paradise, we loaded Tippy the Canoe and Abigail the dog and set off for high adventure in early August. After all, who could resist the thought of launching
an expedition from a place with the romantic-sounding name of Rat Farm?
