A few years back, had one jump aboard a houseboat in Sulfur Creek, Dale Hollow Lake, Tenn.

Then 2 more; then the whole tribe...12 in all. They tried to take out the screens in the windows, emptied garbage cans, and took wife's sunglasses before I got them off the boat. Never found the sunglasses, and never went back to Sulfur Creek.

Don't get me started on coons. One time I was camping at Carolina Beach with a couple of friends. We had been doing it for a long time with family, so we knew to store food in the vehicles. Well, I forgot to put away a unopened can of Slim Jim's that night. I usually sleep against the tent wall and that night I was bumped several times. I looked out and saw some coon's, so I just went back to sleep. When we got up I started asking everyone where my Slim Jim's were. No one could find them.

We gave up the hunt and grabbed our poles to go fishing. About 100 yards down the trail I found my Slim Jim's. The top was neatly pulled back and opened and each one of ripped open and eaten. If I hadn't seen the coon's I would have thought a human had done it. I have a lot of respect for their dexterity, but i'll never get over them taking my Slim Jim's. Don't mess with my processed dried meat! Big grin

My wife thinks I crazy for my vendetta against raccoons...

Many moons ago, while camping at Loft Mountain in Shenandoah National Park, I left the window in my pickup down overnight and the coons snitched the kids' big bag of bubble gum. Their muddy footprints were everywhere. Not sure if a coon can blow bubbles or not.
