Good morning from Lake Tahoe. We are having a typical spring with a few nice days that hint at the promise of summer mixed in with some cold days that make me wonder if winter is ever going to move on.
Mother's Day is this Sunday so Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers who receive this newsletter. I know most of us are not able to be with our families this year but I wish for each of you the best day possible in spite of the circumstance.

Let's Go Camping
Summer has finally arrived in the small town of Blahville which is when the locals all emerge from their homes for the annual town camping trip. The event is a popular one held in the nearby national park but this year twelve friends decide to set out on their own rather than joining the other as is tradition. The impromptu camping expedition starts off pleasant enough until tragedy strikes leaving three of the twelve dead.
Use the clues provided in each of the four May newsletters to figure out which friend is attacked by a bear while another falls from a cliff and a third is hopelessly mired down in quicksand.
Clues: Harry and Hillary shared a blue tent which was both sturdy and bear proof.
Fiona was new to camping so decided to bunk with Julie in the orange tent. Gina and Hillary each had a purple tent. Neither died. Carl shared his black tent with Fred who knew exactly where to walk so that both friends were able to avoid the quicksand.
