People going camping is all I see. Five people, they probably camp together. They're carrying what they need for the trip. They're trying to go up into the mountains where they'll camp out. Weather's nice, cool.
They see different kinds of animals, I would think so. They'll see bears, cats, squirrels -- possums and squirrels! The animals will be nice, I hope they are.
I'd say two kids, excited, they probably like it. I believe they've seen each other. They might do it often, who knows? They were probably in school, a private school. They're on a trip with a teacher. Showing them what happens with the animals, how they should behave around animals, how the animals survive.
People in the woods. Beware of the bears! They might hurt them, eat them. They search for food -- other animals, berries if they find them. She stinks, really badly! The cats hunt also -- wild cats! They hunt for food. And they stink. They have bugs on them, too. So they scratch on rocks with their paws. That depends. The squirrels eat nuts. They like to come to my house, outside. They build nests in trees to hide their young. So another animal won't destroy them. There are a lot of different things out there.
The kids have learned the way to survive. I don't want to use everything. Stop showing survival. He told them everything good about it, but he didn't want to tell them the bad. They can be attacked. That would be bad because it would be showing bad things -- attacking people. They get smashed up and eaten and bit. They're trying to get away as much as they can. I'm just trying to figure it out.
There are Indians! They'll probably kill them. They'll kill the animals AND the people! They'll go back to their own business, their own survival. I guess that's what I would do. I don't think they finished. They go on with their living, their survival, catching food, sleeping. They catch whatever bugs they can; they eat them! Grasshoppers, roaches, crickets, dragonflies. If they can get real meat, they'd probably eat that, too! Indians? They go to sleep, don't they? Depends on what time of year it is.
It's fall; the Indians sleep where the season is.
