Each night raccoon, skunk, fox, ring tail, and apparently badger come to the porch to eat. Right at dark, before any of the others, the smallest ring tail of them all comes to the door and waits. Each feeding it comes a little closer. Tom's plan is to eventually have the ring tail eating out of his hand. So, sometime in the next few weeks or so Tom will have a new friend or rabies.

Tom can see something moving across the driveway but can't quite tell what it is. In sandals (it will matter shortly) Tom heads outside to get a better look. If it's like most of the other critters around Base Camp it's near sighted and Tom should be able to get close. Tom has moved back against the lodge trying to get some heat reflecting off the wall and to get out of the breeze, when a car pulls up. The badger seeing the vehicle runs up on the porch and bumps right into Tom.
