Captain Stuart, surly an outdoorsman of your stature knows of what Daniel Boone once said: "I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks."

I'm an Eagle Scout, we can't get lost.

Trooper pal: "Says the guy who thinks .38 Super and 10mm are viable pistol calibers and gets mad when Wal-Mart doesn't have them."
