Happy Fourth Of July!

My pack and I are afraid of fireworks, and it's for a good reason. Fireworks were involved in an estimated 8,800 injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency departments last year. An estimated 5,900 of those fireworks-related injuries (67%) occurred between June 19 and July 19 of 2009. Injuries to children under 15 years of age accounted for 39% of the estimated injuries. Children and young adults under the age of 20 had ... 54% of the estimated injuries. We all know that fireworks are dangerous, but sometimes we need numbers to help us really get it.

My pack and I are going to be just fine. We set up camp on our back patio and we're watching carefully to make sure nobody with fireworks comes near us. We mean business!!!

Stay safe!
Stay away from fireworks and drunk drivers!
And have a terrific FOURTH OF JULY!
