Las nite bout midnite I got tuckered out and pulled the ol Alvis Stalwart Camper off on a trail near Alamogordo to camp fer the nite.About 2AM sumpin set off the perimeter sensors,but didn't get nothin on the thermal display,so figured it must be sum kinda cold blooded beastie slitherin about on bidness of his own.Went back ta bed and other than some rustlin sounds beneath the Stalwart,it was a quiet night but this morning when I fired her up,sumpin went skitterin out from unnerside and inta the brush,Near as I could tell,it looked a lil like one a them komodo lizards,cept it had 6 laigs,pointy ears and 3 yeller bands around the tail.Got no idear what it was,but the Stalwart'll do about 40 off road,and it done outrun me it nuthin flat.Gonna sleep with the screens locked up tonight.

Well, I tell you this, Stench, You be one mighty lucky ol' Boy. Right there where you was campin' alot of stange things have happened. There have been a lot of sightings of lizard like animals like the one you saw. Most of the witnesses didn't survive. The first known victim was a Ms Rebecca Snooker of Mobridge So. Dakota who had automobile trouble in that exact area june 21 1954. Ms Snooker told of a harrowing eperience in which the creature bit off her little toe.

Well we had a similar experiance out in Alta. was scarrie at first but when we got home the neighbours old tom cat was missing. Guess he had his tail caught in the fanbelts for 2500 miles and when he got loose boy did he go. Fast moving legs look like more you know, hard to count at that speed. He might have got into that rv for another nap and caused this.
Later Bob

Those Alvis Stalwart campers were made in one of those tropical areas and they're loaded with them there Iguana Lizards. Obviously some long-dormant reptile eggs that were laid on the camper frame at the factory in '48 hatched on your trip, and as a result you got all fired up about nothing. And don't worry, that fire comin' outen his nostrils is a very low temperature and wouldn't butn the leg hairs offen a flea.
