(Strip Number 1064, Original Publication Date, 26 July 1986)
Panel 1: We go back to the Patterson house for a second so that Elly can tell Georgia that she's glad she came over because she could use the company.
Panel 2: She then wonders what the boys are doing on their fishing trip.
Panel 3: Geo assumes that they're having a fine old time cooking a pickerel.
Panel 4: In actuality, they're having a miserable time cowering around a pokey camp fire drying off their clothes.
Summary: I should think that this is why Georgia eventually sells all of Phil's outdoorsy stuff. The mental image of him suffering like this gets to be too much for her to take. Also, Lynn's notes will have her assume that Rod was starving and freezing and dying going to the Land Of Eternal Windy Frozen Death.
