oooh new background! Kewl
Yeahright the one snoring was probably Hubris… or both of them.
Good thinking, Hubris, give S-C something ELSE to give him cold sweats and heebers all night long to mull.
Can’t sleep. Someone left the lights on…
TSOJ – it’s darker there than in the City… I’d love to have a see through tent to sleep in. Cept of course, those pesky spiders like to crawl on tents.
When my brother was a Park Ranger in West Virginia, I left his house one night to go out to the car for something. No moon. And the stars are NOT enough to light your way to a black car. I bumbled around for a while, then went and left the back door open so I could find the car and then find my way back into the house. I’ve never seen anything so dark outside of a cave.
As for the see-through tent idea, Allan- I had half written a few versions of this cartoon that featured Mr. S-C in his tent with the rainfly left off, and unnerved by the stars. None of them quite worked as well as having him bumble in the dark.
When I was living in Austin, TX, I bought an 8″ Newtonian telescope, and a few times I drove an hour out of the city to do star gazing with the regional hobbyists. Generally, you want the moon to be down, and to give yourself at least an hour for your eyes to get acclimated to the dark. It is hard to walk around or read your sky charts like that, so people tape red filters to their flashlights. If you ever want to make a group of people angry fast, try turning on your car’s headlights for a second…
At a star party that is the closest you will get to being summarily executed; putting on anything other than red filter light.
I know I’d want to kick yer tuckus and wipe my shoes off after. Or wish you every mosquito for fifty miles to fly down your tube and all you can see are the confused skeeters trying to get to YOU for their 2 am snack….
See through tents… some of them when wet get pretty close. Waiting for the krakboom about dawn and having to swim for it as the tent becomes a lake…
Nope, don´t think he will be able to sleepafter that one.
New backgraound, I´m with Feelin´…
