Becky, sounds like a lot of fun. When it comes to terriers, regardless of size, I recomend drugs. Either for you or the terrier. Having had experience with all sizes and having owned a Giant Schnauzer I can say the smaller the better. Some say they're high energy dogs... I say they're possessed.

You will survive... but take numerous throw toys and balls for the Jack Russell... and medication for what will be a sore arm! Or, each kid must play with the dog for 15 minutes (30 min?) before they are rewarded with food.

Have fun!

I had to abandon ship last night, I had taken my son and 2 of the boys out Thursday night. My husband arrived last night with the four others. I have never in my life seen some of the most disrespectful boys in my life. First of all 2 ran off and it took us about 30 min. to find them. Not to mention just plain not listening. I looked over and one boy was lighting pine needles with the tiki torch. After about 2 hours of this they all decided a movie would be good sound good to me until I found 2 jumping on the front gaucho.
I told my husband good night and headed for home and just pray the Airstream survives.
Never again I have learned a great lesson, camping Airstream style is just for my family.
Next time all the tents will be in tow and not the Airstream!!!!!!!

We have camped with the scouts before and it was nothing like what i experienced last night. One child I felt so sorry for, I had sent a list home to the parents to list medications that had to be given this one child is on so many meds it's unreal (heavy meds) what has this world come to with so much drugs for children. The dad told my husband he knows how to take his meds but if he misses it in the morning (you will know)

Yeah, one of my Cubs was on Ritalin. Both parents were doctors.

One day his nanny filled him up with Kool-aid and sent him to my house without his meds.

We had to peel him off the ceiling with a spatula.

I had a handful of those cubs too. My rule was if the scout could not behave to a reasonable standard during the meetings that the parents had to be there to control them. Funny thing was on a couple of them, they were better behaved for me and my co-leaders than they were for the parents (and I will stay off my soapbox about medication of children)

It's only one night what could happen?
I just made a reservation and found out there is also a Jack Russell Terrier show going on.
Okay so 150 Jack Russells and 6 boys.
One thing for sure is you'll make some wonderful memories for those 6 little boys. What a fine, thoughtful husband you have. Be sure to be thankful for him.

Memories????? Chuckle

I finished reading the whole thread and sure enjoyed it. Well, I was right that you would make some memories all right, but what memories!

When my kids were small I used to take groups of their friends camping with us. Tents are for kids! They love it, they love to sleep in sleeping bags and "rough it." The AS provided the kitchen to feed them -- outside! And the parks provided them the showers and bathrooms. Don't give up on the little brats, they need you and someday they'll look back and remember the trips just like I remember giving my RA teacher forty kinds of hell. Why in the world did he put up with it? I'm lucky he didn't drown me!
