Do the wolves like to have their eyes stared into?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:06pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One Yogi Bear exchange I remember: The bears spy a pie cooling on a window sill.
Boo-Boo: How are we going to get that pie, Yogi?
Yogi: It's not how, it's who. And who is you, Boo-Boo.

I've found that eating blueberries tends to turn one's doo-doos a different color than usual.
Avatar 7:11pm kimzilla & emily:

WELL, Jeff, according to station manager Ken, who gave us some sage advice when he found out where we were going, you are supposed to stare into their eyes to get them to submit...? We think he might have been trying to dispose of us...

I once owned on'82 Chrysler K-car with a 3-speed auto. That thing was pretty anemic.

  7:19pm Hypertoast:

You should have stared him down until he submitted
  7:20pm producer james:

Emily sounds like she's gonna cry
Avatar 7:20pm Kate:

this is the way camping is supposed to go! camping is really all about the stories later.
Avatar 7:20pm cosmic matrix:

camping hell would be a brilliant podcast! you'd have to make sure for epic fails every time...
  7:21pm kimzilla:

You have to believe me, I am an excellent camper. But everything was against us. Everything.
Avatar 7:21pm emily:

@cosmic: I love that idea!!
  7:22pm kimzilla:

He knocked over the water container!
Avatar 7:22pm cosmic matrix:

@emily, you'd just have to have other people do it sometimes! you could be the editor
  7:23pm DEZ:

Is that a lil Rod Sterwart in the background?!?!
Avatar 7:23pm emily:

Oh man, I so want to edit a travel failures podcast. I really love this idea...
Avatar 7:23pm TehBadDr:

So many camping stories....
Avatar 7:24pm emily & kimzilla:

@ DEZ: good ear! that's our producer (who by the way, does a fill-in called Shouthouse that is SO GOOD)
Avatar 7:24pm cosmic matrix:

  7:25pm james f:

i cannot vouch for my sobriety levels from this point out
Avatar 7:25pm emily & kimzilla:

so, some good food was achieved! we wrapped a bunch of stuff in tin foil and threw it in the fire...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:25pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Camping story: College chums & I rafting near Royal Gorge, CO. Woke up from a nightmare that a helicopter was chasing me around & shooting at me. IRL, a freight train was roaring up the grade on the other side of the river.
Avatar 7:25pm emily & kimzilla:

so...a word about that chicken...
  7:25pm Marc15:

In the summer of 1977, I was at a sleep away camp somewhere in Sussex County, New Jersey. One night we where at the campsite that had 2 tents, housing 12 ten-year-olds and our counselor. A thunderstorm occurred with heavy rain, loud thunder and lightening. I was afraid that our tents would be struck by lightning. It was not a good night. And I have not gone camping again
Avatar 7:26pm emily & kimzilla:

love the camping stories, y'all! keep 'em coming!
  7:27pm james f:

Fern usually ends up being right!
Avatar 7:27pm JakeGould:

Err… Kielbasa is a phonetic translation. And Kielbasi is a phonetic translation. It’s all the exact same thing.
Avatar 7:27pm Kate:

one time we went camping and took the rain fly but not the tent
Avatar 7:28pm emily & kimzilla:

questions about the chicken being fully cooked will be addressed later...the next day...
Avatar 7:28pm emily & kimzilla:

@kate: hahaha oh lord. yes...
  7:28pm james f:


kielbasy is plural kielbasa
Avatar 7:28pm JakeGould:

It just means sausage. A Polish sausage party!
Avatar 7:29pm emily & kimzilla:

james: oh...duh. I don't know why THAT didn't occur to us...
Avatar 7:29pm Kate:

Ken FHP that freight train goes through a campground near Asheville NC too.
Avatar 7:29pm emily & kimzilla:

and then Pippi rolled in something dead.
  7:30pm kimzilla:

This is when she came back smelling like she rolled in a dead animal.
  7:30pm Listener Robert:

I grew up with them as lightning bugs, but scientists call them fireflies. But I'm now a scientist, and they're still lightning bugs.
  7:31pm kimzilla:

Who's adorable? My Cohost!
Avatar 7:31pm emily:

that one's for you, mom.
Avatar 7:31pm TehBadDr:

This one time camping, with some folks from college 2nd year, I can'y remember where we went, but there was a lean to, so that was easy. We damned up a local stream so we could bathe and float in it. One night we put on Pink Floyd Meddle (on the boombox), and set some candles afloat in that damned up pool, did some things and spaced for what seemed like hours!
Avatar 7:32pm emily & kimzilla:

@TehBadDr: that sounds AWESOME! that's a GOOD camping trip...
Avatar 7:33pm Kate:

I LOVE THAT SONG! The Pause of Mr. Clause. The story he tells about the FBI agent is called The Last Guy, because everybody has it better than that guy. Thanks kid.
  7:34pm kimzilla:

Take notes people.
Avatar 7:34pm cosmic matrix:

yup. good marshmallow tutorial. slow roast. just be careful it don't slip off
  7:35pm Listener Robert:

At Wolf Park in Tippecanoe, Dr. Klinghammer used to demonstrate scent rolling by taking some perfume spray from an audience volunteer and spraying it on the ground. The wolves would sniff it, then one would roll on it, and the others would sniff that wolf. It's like, "Smell what I found."

Dr. Klinghammer, who died a few years ago, said they'll do it even if you put down something irritating for them to roll on that makes them sneeze. I thought about going back there with a packet of hot Chinese mustard.
Avatar 7:35pm Kate:

Boil from the inside. Kim I'm starting to be a little worried about you.
Avatar 7:35pm TehBadDr:

Watch for the puff!
Avatar 7:35pm PsychopathJimFields:

Should you people really be playing with fire?
Hi Kim!!!!
Hi Emily!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:35pm melinda:

I used to go camping with my dad and his friends when I was in high school, but not since then. They were an interesting group of people.
  7:37pm Listener Robert:

So Pippi wanted you to smell that dead animal.
  7:37pm producer james:

this is bullshit!!
  7:38pm kimzilla:

He's back!
Avatar 7:38pm cosmic matrix:

  7:39pm nick zero:

,,,,,in 1993 in Hutchinson ,KS. the City street dept used to dump the kerosene used to clean out the leftover asphalt in the dump trucks used and washed it down the drain that went straight into what was once a clear creek that ran off the Arkansas River and ran North to South through town. I reported it and they did nothing. Genius morons is the word I am looking for.Now that it looks dead and lifeless they stamped "no dumping goes to river" with a fish symbol on the manhole covers done in the early 2000s.
Avatar 7:39pm cosmic matrix:

i would love to read through the yelp reviews of this campground.....
Avatar 7:41pm Erin and the Cat:

I can hear the fire popping
Avatar 7:41pm JakeGould:

Yelp reviews are very accurate.
  7:42pm producer James:

a bear with a pair of nikes
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One of my college buds owned a few acres in some hills near Fairplay, CO. They had a little pop-up trailer permanently parked there. Over the years, we burned up all the available firewood on the property.
Avatar 7:42pm PsychopathJimFields:

Hello producer James!!!!
Avatar 7:43pm TehBadDr:

I raise you a Koala with a pair of Asics!
Avatar 7:44pm emily & kimzilla:

man...we sound haggard as HELL
Avatar 7:44pm cosmic matrix:

what a trip.
  7:45pm kimzilla:

James was sweating out blueberry juice.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:45pm Aitch:

Bears, dogs and seals all the same family. Bear a really big dog.
  7:45pm producer james:

turns out I was the bear
Avatar 7:46pm TehBadDr:

I've found that the wildlife will come and check you out, try and get at your food, trash, and what not. No need to seek them out.
Avatar 7:47pm JakeGould:

Ever see two koala bears fight? Well you are one click away… youtu.be...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48pm Ken From Hyde Park:

One trip, I hiked up Mauna Loa. Went outside to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Glanced up and noticed the stars weren't twinkling like when you're at sea level. Wish I would've spent more time stargazing. It was freezing cold in January and I didn't bring my coat along to Hawaii.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:50pm melinda:

Koala fight messes with my childhood ideal of cuddly creatures hanging out eating eucalyptus leaves. I'd still like to meet one someday.
  7:51pm producer james:

so much groanin
Avatar 7:52pm Kate:

worst ways to die than by bear attack: being roasted like a marsh mellow by someone that makes you boil inside. . .
Avatar 7:52pm TehBadDr:

You should see Koalas mate! Brutal, maybe you have mistaken fighting for mating.
Avatar 7:53pm JakeGould:

Don’t microwaves boil from the inside?
Avatar 7:53pm TehBadDr:

@Kate wins the discussion board!
Avatar 7:53pm cosmic matrix:

This show is making me feel better about not having been camping since 1988.
Avatar 7:57pm Kate:

@ TehBadDr: YAY, so glad you are judge this week !
  7:58pm producer james:

it was a great trip now that it was last week
Avatar 7:58pm Kate:

@ TehBadDr: hope you enjoyed the small bribe I sent earlier in July. . .
Avatar 7:58pm TehBadDr:

Great show again Emily and Kimzilla!
Avatar 7:59pm JakeGould:

Please don’t play “payback” games.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:59pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Camping tip: Bring plenty of your own water. If you drink straight out of the creek, you can get sick from the water germs.
Avatar 7:59pm cosmic matrix:

i'm sorry your camping trip sucked but that was great radio!!!
