Edward Bear with Pumpkin
Edward Bear knows that hibernation is coming. He's been feeling a little tired lately. On the other hand, he really had a fun time visiting in Missouri. He saw a video of Elliot and Emmala opening up a box with bears that Rachel sent to them. That was exciting. And Edward Bear has always been in hibernation at Halloween before, so he didn't know about all of the Jack-o-Lanterns and decorations with skeletons, cobwebs, spiders and other creatures. He even saw a pretend witch that looked like she had flown into a tree.

The camper is headed back to Rapid City and will arrive tomorrow, where it will be cleaned out, drained, winterized and put into the shed for the winter. Edward will settle in for his long winter's nap as usual. Edward didn't get too many outings in 2016, but the camper did travel a little over 5,000 miles without any problems and, of course, Edward was along for the ride each time.
