Scout came home…

…happy and healthy, if somewhat skinnier and pongier than her usual self.

She was found this afternoon, sheltering from the rain in her kennel under a tarp we’d left out there in the hope she’d figure out what to do. We’re guessing she grew tired of her week long rainy wilderness adventure, and/or missed my home cooking…

We are so happy she’s back, and rest assured, what passes for normal service at OldPlaidCamper will resume this coming Friday. Scout might even get another mention…

“Can we rename this blog OldScoutCamper, the adventures of an almost outdoor dog?”

Thank you for all the kind words and hopeful messages earlier, we very much appreciated them.

I am a would be outdoorsman - that is if I had more time, skills and knowledge. When I can, I love being outdoors, just camping, hiking, snowboarding, xc skiing, snowshoeing, paddling a canoe or trying something new. What I lack in ability, I make up for in enthusiasm and having a go. I'd never really survive for long out there in the wild, but I enjoy pretending I could if I had to...

  1. Oh man, great news! I’ve been checking every day, hoping to learn she decided that the “call of the wild” wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I was very happy to find this waiting in my inbox this morning!


  2. Love the new name of the blog and so happy that Scout is back home after her adventure!!!😁 Make sure to include a few celebration snacks with that home cooked meal for Scout and an extra beverage for you and Mrs PC.🍷😁


    1. Thank you! Yes, she’s being well and truly spoiled, and lolling about on her cushion like a dog that has missed her home comforts for more than a week. It is so good to have her back, and we’re hoping that she’s had her fill of unaccompanied wilderness adventures!
