"It's all nonsense about me being lost," declared Mr. Bodahl. "I knew where I was all the time, although I was a little tired." In every way he attempts to treat the affair lightly, but his friends persist in congratulating him on his escape from death at the hands of bears, wolves, moun tain lions, or any other old wild animal.
