Yeah, I remember that (referring to mule train's message from 8/5/11... it's been a while since I checked this board). 8th grade, spring of 1987. I don't remember the part about the heron and the bass, but I do remember the bull snake. I got out of the river and caught it after it climbed up the bank. Turned it loose after a couple of minutes though. I forgot about the "gasoline heist" until I saw Betty's comment. Just to be clear, it was the college kid who gave us the ride back into town that stole the gallon of gas (not John and me). I guess you could say we were complicit. At the time, I mostly just wanted to get some water that was safe to drink and to take care of the nasty sunburn I'd acquired that day.
