    If they were told then they have a problem, sounds like a good night was had by all.
    One last thought, please take it the right way. was it just you and the girls camping? no other adult females?

    Just a thought why the mum got upset.
    This reminds me of a recent trip I went on. I'm a single guy and not a parent. I have a friend with 3 children that I have known for years. There's 2 girls; 7 and 11. Also 1 boy who is 9. They only live a couple block away and often the boy comes over to play my playstation3. On one such occasion he saw me getting out thing in preperation for this trip and ask if he could come along. So we called his mother and ask. Next thing I knew, his sisters wanted to come along. To make a long story short, not being a parent of a girl and having no other girls/women along, I ran into a small problem. About 1.5 miles into the hike to the first nights campsite, the girl gets my attention and says she needs to pee. So I called a break and dug out some paper for her. She looked up at me and ask where the bathroom was. She then informed me that she didn't know how to pee outside... I ended up pulling out my IPhone and found a youtube video for her.

    While she was attending to her business, I couldn't help but call her mother and inform her of the lack of education of her daughters. I guess it just goes to show you that you can't plan for everything.

    thanks for checking back in with the update. amazing how distorted things can get. Reminds me of the game "telephone", by the time the same story gets passed around it is all messed up.
    To think she was so upset, yet couldn't call to check in.??
    Just cause your paranoid, does'nt mean someone's not watching you....

    Clearly a case of poor communication and speculation, I have been guilty of this before, good thing it was sorts out before the crazy train left the station. Best of all you may have gotten a hanging buddy out of it.

    I just do not get it. If I were a Mom and heard my child was going somewhere a "bad" guy was going to be I would seriously question the idea to begin with...BUT A peeper will peep in a tent just as easily as a hammock. I would worry more about a toilet as then a child would be in some state of undress. MAN it seems there are more and more creeps out there!!!
