Bat wrangler's journal entry number 1. Night one of my journey into the campground of darkness. The heat in my room at the Super 8 didn't work. Temperatures dropped to a bone chilling 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the housekeeper is ugly. Must reach Dunkin Donuts to try to signal for help.

Be careful out there Muddy. Nothing worse then an ugly housekeeper or a stampede at dunkin doughnuts.

Bones, stones and old hickory handles. These did most of my whittling and camp chores.

The rope is meant to keep people from walking out on the slippery rocks. If you’re that dumb to ignore the sign, please go ahead.

This whale, we discovered had become tangled up in a lobster trap. We stayed on station and waited for the Marine department to deploy and free the whale.
