complacency. His ingenious plan cannot be revealed at this
time, but let's just say it won't be long before deep dish
pizzas are rolling into Lambeau Field.

RECALL & SHARE THE ONE TIME YOU POWER-BOOTED HARDEST ON
CAMP GROUNDS (OR WITHIN 25 MILES), WHERE IT WAS SPECIFICALLY
AND UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES DID SUCH OCCUR...

- In the late 70's I remember booting behind Winnebago
while holding on to a rope tied around a birch tree. All I
remember about that boot was that it was alcohol induced
shortly after being summoned into the counselors room. At
the 2000 reunion I found that tree and was amazed to see
part of the rope peeking out from where the tree had grown
around it and had almost covered it!
Boot memory #2:
Not mine, but the best projectile booting I ever witnessed
was from Keith Benzuly hurling on Nancy's sweater at the

The Real Story...
- My greatest booting was during the late 1970s as well
(1978 to be exact), after my 1st Bucket Night experience.
Somehow stumbling back to SemenHole and passing out in my
clothes on top of my cot setup, while the majority of others
managed to boot either in or on top of their sleeping bags,
I managed to gastrically decorate several shelves that were
around my setup with multi-colored, multi-textured vomit.
Come daybreak, additionally and unbeknownst to me, I managed
to lose utter and complete control of my other bodily
functions and evidently found myself in possession of the
largest and mushiest Lincoln Log that I've ever cranked out.
The problem was twofold. First, it was inside my jeans.
Second and of more concern to me, was how on earth was I to
dispose of this mess without anyone knowing. While everyone
was still in bed, I proceeded to remove the log and
underwear and wrapped it all up in a large Sunday Chicago
Sun-Times. I couldn't walk out of the cabin with the bundle
in front of everyone. Since I had to substantially cleanse
and desanitize the perinial area anyway, I proceeded and
headed for the bathroom, where I spent about 20 minutes of
time accomplishing such activity to conclusion. Since
everyone was clearly awake and trying to get their wits
about themselves, I noticed a couple shelf units in the
bathroom and a rubber band as well. I secured the heap
tightly with the rubber band and jammed it between the wall
and the shelf unit. Peter was the first person to take care
of business in the bathroom and, while he won't remember
this, was completely taken by the awful stench. I distinctly
remember telling him "it's all gone now and on the way to
the mess hall." When we finally all made it to the Lodge for
breakfast, I quite briskly retreated back to the cabin,
retrieved the prize and heaved it deep into the woods.

remember (and there appear to be a few) it ís Mr.

Glad to see the Red Owl incident (memorialized in my mind as
my own personal episode of "Scared Straight") remains a part
of Timberlane lore...
Hope this message finds everyone happy and healthy!

Saturday evenings to watch this TRAMPBALL hybrid game called
Slamball. I beleive this constitutes some type of copyright

- I just got home from another 'exciting' real estate
conference in San Antonio. While there I meet a guy from
Indy and I start asking if he knows any camp people, he says
he doesn't but it sounds like the camp that Mark Perlstein
went to. It turns out that Mark works for the same company
as this guy and he was also at the conference. We have
probably been to the same meetings a dozen times and never
knew it. Mark and I visited/talked about camp for a few
minutes that night and I told him what eveyone was up to.

Ya never know where a Timber guy will
- After over 20 years, I ran into Paul Rosenblum on
Saturday night. Paul told me he loved going up on the grundy
nail. A definite over achiever, Paul has an attractive wife
and 3 kids. Told me to say hi to all Timber guys.

- Another Timber-encounter:
My first Fall Campout as an Indian Guide dad with my oldest
son Eliah. One of my fellow tribe-members is Marty Carney
who was at Timberlane for a couple of years in the late
'70s. We shared campfire and coached our kids through
archery and riflery. Late night stories for the kids
included "The Monkey's Paw" and the traditional first
campfire story of the fraternity man on the train with H.
Lots of shared memories.

Timber-drive bys. Pud, thanks for the great laugh this
mornin! Would like to know how BIG that log was?!? My
favorite "T-personal protien spill" was at Clear Lake???
where we use to do all cabin overnights. "The Gang" all lost
our minds from Tequila. We had a "group-boot" when we were
safely in our tent. All I know is Goodman broke his arm, and
in the AM I layed down a corn-filled mound along the trail,
that someone mistakenly thought was bear shit! O what a
night! Mishlove you were the best!

12:30 am after seeing "Mystere,"...I see this guy, do a

I recognized him, but I swear to god he looks the
same...same hairdo!...nice Timber kizmet moment.

FIrst Year Power Boot!!
- As a first year camper in Blackfoot I did not quite know
the deadly nature of the sausage links that H would feed us.
It was the end of camp for the season, footlockers were
packed, and I filled Sammy Ellman's open locker with a
horrific sausage overdose. It was payback time for sleeping
under The Fart King. I have not eaten a link sausage since
Other toxic stories include: dragging Todd Chapman by his
ankles from Sioux cabin to the infirmary after a Southern
Comfort overdose; picking up the Canadian trip in the white
travelall with Rosy booting out the back side window, down
the rear quarterpanel, all the way to Virginia, MN where the
kingpins were replaced; and of course, the famous Fair
Dinkum power boot after a bucket of Jack at the Whale and
another 9 shots at the dink, three days of colorful hangover
after the initial death boot.

somehow, someway, there was alcohol. I think Wally Posner
broke a body part, but I'm fuzzy on the detail. Anyone
recall? BTW with great regret, I will not be at JP's party

- Speaking of Chapman (Robbie) and tushball, I pushed him
into the wall as he was hitting the ball into the "then"
arts & crafts shop and he got a very bloody face in
1971. I was also very fortunate to have won an all-camp
tushball event in the early 80s. Speaking of Todd, he's the
only one who I've ever known who claimed to have skied on a
baseball bat and the real reason for his divorce had to do
with him constantly eating fish sandwiches while driving. He
and Scooter would have made great brothers.

A bit off topic but...
- Going back to favorite H sayings...(just thought of one
today that made me laugh)..loved it when someone was at the
campfire singing or entertaining in some way, then H would
decide enough was enough and cut the person off with a "BIG
HAND!"...which was his equivalent of "The Hook."...that
always slayed me.
