Yeti and Kobae

Last year, Kobae (the security tortoise) ran off snakes, fox, big horn, and anything that thought Base Camp was the place to be. Yeti (sheep dog) has been watching the lodge while Kobae was gone. Today they meet and one or the other will establish who is the head of security, and who is not.

The matter has been settled.

Flaw in the Security Plan

Squirrels know when check out time is. As guests leave their rooms open to take luggage to their vehicle, the squirrels attempt to raid the room while they are gone. Kobae, won't go out until the outside temp is 60 degrees. While squirrels go wild, Kobae (the security tortoise) sits under his heat lamp.
