I'm asking for short stories to put in this weekends build for a fund raiser help boost Picks go-fund-me. True short stories that we all have as a part of our lives. I'll place pages like a thin booklet on back panel that exhibit a few top stories. The guitar will raffle off on the 16th Feb. message me if you're in. I'll have photos up Saturday on 9th.
Here is my story and an example:
Thief in the night!
At the time, I thought I was well suited for wilderness living but that’s based off overnight camping and a few weeks on the trail. I understood the basics such as how to set dry camp or survive extreme weather conditions. What to pack and all that.
One weekend I decided to head to base camp and set up for the family before all the weekenders came in and spoiled it. I was about 3000 feet in the Cuyamaca’s southern California. Beautiful oaks, manzanita’s, sage and rolling streams. I had a van loaded with everything. I had the fire, the stove and a big juicy T-bone stake all seasoned with pepper, garlic butter sided up with a bake potato and veggies.
I thought of something else I might need and no more than 30 seconds passed, I felt something had changed in the camp. I slowly turned and took my time allowing my eyes to zero in on whatever it is.
There sitting at the table eating my steak was the biggest raccoon I’ve seen to this day. He looked like an over fed child of eight. I yelled at him- HEY! What do you think you’re doing?
For a moment he just held an unconcerned stare as if to say! Isn’t it obvious, I chewing.
Then he was gone and so was my dinner.
