Avocadoe Toast and Front Door Policy

Today we made a delicious avocado spread for the sourdough loaf we prepared last night and baked at dawn.  Elizabeth was a big help in the kitchen for clean up. 

As a side note, please make sure you always latch the front door on the first floor.  Some of us have been a little forgetful and we've had a few "unexpected" visitors.

It's getting a little cold outside and we're all getting a case of the sniffles here and there.  It is not too late to get a Flu Shot in the nurse's office if you have not yet received one already.

We're back! We've been kicked off dry land but we got a ship to cruise the international waters. Come join us on our maiden voyage in Newport next weekend!  Free  koozies and whistles for the kids!

Money Supply

Please note that we only bank in places where freedom of the press and property rights are revered.

The pharm experimented with complete and total electronic communication darkness for the past nine months.  We woke one morning recently and found Elizabeth in her one piece kamp issue long-underwear on the fringe of the forest hunting pigeons with a rabbit snare.  We realized, belatedly perhaps, that there is only so much isolation one can endure.  We are now back on the grid.

Your Weekly Riddle

The first kamper to guess the name of the book that generated the reviews below wins a deluxe fly fishing kit.    See the lunch leader if you have a response.

"I had to flog myself to read it."
 -William F Buckly

"I find it a remarkably silly book. It is certainly a bumptious one.  Its story is preposterous."
-Whittaker Chambers

We successfully launched our first weather balloon of the season this morning.  Congrats to the kamp's Mendacious Meteorologists and a special thank you to the Obstreperous Ornithologists of Omicron for their assistance.

On a similar note, please join us tonight at sunset on the main parade ground where we will throw ducks at balloons and make s'mores to celebrate the solstice.

Today's Treat

Please note that the pâté in the cafeteria is from free-range, grass-finished (as nature intended) rattlesnakes.  A million thanks to kounselor Adam for the contribution.

Baking with Friends

Memorial Day was a great success.  We would like to thank McCabes for teaching the new campers how to grill the ideal burger (involves hickory chips and liquid nitrogen).  We also learned how to make a delicious Brioche bun, a fitting holiday salute to the country that was our first ally and one of the original champions of liberty.

Attention all: please allow us to open our veritable trench-coat and expose the oddities of the last few months to our beloved kampers and friends...

After a much needed post-engagement overseas bender, we woke out of the haze of celebration to find our netflix account hacked by a team of private equity investors making the crudest attempt to get our attention.  It worked.  They set us up so that we raked in enough fees for destroyed DVDs to financially ruin not only our personal net worth but also that of the kamp (their laywers found some strange loopholes that put the kamp on the hook for the debts of its senior partners).  In an effort to save the kamp, we hastily made our way to the port of Shanghai and spotted a PANAMAX in need of crew.  We were hired and departed at sunset.

Upon our arrival at the port of Elizabeth, New Jersey, we were immediately detained by the port authority and found their "interpretation" of Fourth Amendment rights a little different than we expected.  Of all the souvenirs collected, we were most sad to have had confiscated a letter drafted to us by a community group in Delhi, India thanking us for exposing government corruption in their area.

With nothing but the dingiest of our cloths remaining, we were forced to hitchhike back to kamp.  The journey was difficult.  When we arrived, we discovered that the Private Equity investors had already managed to legally purchase our debt.  The kamp, our dream, now had a new owner.  Pardon: equity partners.

After one, single, lonely failing quarter, the equity partners decided the kamp was not a core part of their portfolio so they sold off all the assets including the URL and the name.  We managed to grab the URL in the sell-off frenzy.  The other assets were far out of our price range.

After a grueling search, we found a suitable location to restart the greatness that once was.  In honor of the new spot, the new name for the institution is The Pharm.  Though May-Day has come and gone, we hope to honor the start of the first summer season at The Pharm this weekend with our closest friends and kampers.

Thank you to all who supported us in these trying times

We've Been Dancing for Days...

...and we're still going strong.  We apologize for the delay in our postings: on January 19th the two most senior counselors became betrothed and we've been celebrating ever since.  Hurrah! The year is off to an excellent start!
