Scorpions have a good time getting in our sleeping bags

Camp Haan, California

Dear Pop

Have been getting your cards regularly. I like to get them a lot. We have right many rattlesnakes around and coral snakes and some kind of rattlesnake that crawls on its side. There are a lot of lizards, and scorpions have a good time getting in our sleeping bags. We have a sergeant who collects a lot of animals and he has a “badger” which looks a lot like a skunk, and he has a collection of snake, turtle, lizards, and quails. We went up on a mountain near here Sunday and it was thick with snakes and all kinds of things but they stay away from our camp pretty much.

So long, Tom
