Weekly Wrap UP (July 16 - July 22)



Wildone is on wild camping vacay, so I'm bringing you the Weekly Wrap up.  We shall all have to hope that he doesn't get eaten by a wild bear (*coughs*) so he can come back next week to resume his usual posting. In the meantime, onward for a refresh on last week's goings on from yours truly. 

Monday I featured a short story by our very own long-term Signature member and admin, Graeme:

Tuesday we started voting on the Secret Author Story Contest. Remember1 reader who votes wins free Premium! 

Did you read the Torn in Two excerpt on Wednesday? 

Or check out the list of all 11 Secret Author Stories on Thursday (and find out you get to guess the author on Monday?)

Friday, you were invited to go take a hike... no, it's fine, I promise!

Saturday Comicality talks about the "Author Experience". What is that? Well...

We also had prompts on Friday, brought to us by @Aditus, who is also on vacation.  Hopefully Addy and @wildone will both avoid becoming bear food :unsure:

Thanks, @Cia for this week's wrap-up while @wildone is shirking his duties and going on a vacation, only joking, we all need a break from time to time.

What I am very surprised about is that so few readers have cast votes in The Secret Author Contest! If we want Authors and their teams, and Site Admin, to give up their time to entertain us with quality stories then we should show our gratitude and vote. I have read all of the stories and cast my vote and ask others to do the same, it's easy, anonymous and important. If anyone reading this comment hasn't voted then I ask that they follow either of the links above and vote, NOW!

Funny you all should mention a bear. 

So we were set up in a tenting 'campground'. On Saturday we saw a few conservation officers and then a lot more white trucks with just a Kananaskis logo on the door with a orange light on top going by.

One of the campground attendants came by and asked us to leave our campground and all the food and such and come over towards their trailer and lock up area immediately. The white trucks were 'bear trackers' and we had a momma grizzly and two cubs about 100 feet or less just down a slope grazing and too close for comfort. We never saw them, but knowing is close enough. Glad that they do track especially with all the 1000's of campsites in the area which is a major grizzly area and migration route too! They said it was better to have them find the food on the picnic table than to have us running away with the food from them :o 

Sadly, not even LBO was seen on this trip. 

Actually Steve, I didn't misspell bear, but bares was referring to people that were bare.  I'm happy that the bear didn't create any problems for you, though.
