bobsbackpack 1980 playing cards

Oh - that card deck reminds me of a good story. While we were in the mountains we had a change of plans and needed to change the campsite we were heading for. We had screwed up and were heading for the wrong side of the mountain, leaving us about 30 miles from where our cars were parked.
So because this was back when there were no cel phones, we needed to walk about two hours back to the ranger station to change reservations. Anyway, we drew cards and Dick and Joe were low cards so they dropped their packs and they went off on their four hour round trip.
My brother and I and the others basically took the afternoon off, did some swimming in the creek, (that water is cold!) and hung out. Well about 3 o'clock Dick and Joe return and Dick made his disappointment real clear that we hadn't carried their packs by relay up the trail.
Well, they didn't ask us to do that. Also I sure was not volunteering to do what would be hours of 1/2 the pace and twice the walking. Not my idea of fun......
Dick's face is beet red as he was asking what we were thinking. He basically asked "what would you think if you just walked four hours and found out the rest just hung out for the afternoon"?
Well I replied, "Dick, I would think I picked the wrong card". Anyway, probably the thing that prevented me from losing some teeth was my brother splitting his gut as if it was the funniest thing he ever heard......
Man, I loved those playing cards....
Wait, Oppo is a Cyclone Blog?
