We begin Day Three with clear weather and a search and rescue crew wondering if the smoke on Unnecessary Hardship Island has any connection to the two imbeciles from the city who abandoned their canoe.

(Strip Number 4660, Original Publication Date, 9 August 1986)

Panel 1: As Day Three dawns, John marvels at the clear, sunny sky.

Panel 2: An equally excited Phil gets him to help him move the lean-to back so that they'll be able to see the smoke from the campfire.

Panel 3: A hint of desperation sets in when Phil says that people have just got to see the fire.

Panel 4: Meanwhile, a private plane flies overhead; the pilot asks his friend if the smoke from that island means that someone is lost.

Summary: Well, they've been spotted. As you can see, they're not really all that far from the mainland and, as I've said, would have known that if they looked around a bit. This humiliation is so humiliating that the most adventurous thing John does from now on is ask for a double-double at Tim Horton's when Elly is nagging him about his weight.
