Rehide it well.

The story goes...
A boy in a small village grew bored of his job watching the sheep in the pastures. So he decided to play a prank on his fellow townspeople. He screamed that a wolf was in the fields killing sheep, and the town rushed out to ward it off. Upon discovering that the wolf was non-existant, the townsfolk gave the boy a smack on the head, and went about their business once more. Later that day, a true wolf appeared in the fields. The boy called for help, but not a single villager came to his aid. The wolf killed and ate every sheep in that pasture.

Moral: "A liar will not be believed, even when telling the truth."

It contains a logbook, w/pencil and --Info Cards with the information necessary to complete the OPTIONAL puzzle.-- If you do not comply with what is on the card, I will E-mail you a bunch of frowny faces.

If you need clarification on what to do for the puzzle, you may E-mail me directly, but so I know you aren't cheating, you must tell me what is in bold print at the top of those info cards.

Congratulations to Lost Patrol, Freedom Queen, Daveydude FTF!
