Donald has had enough of the big city’s dirt and noise. He puts his nephews in the car and drives up to Uncle Scrooge’s cabin in the Northern Boondocks. Due to wild beasts and a thunderstorm they have anything but a comfy time. They finish the experiment when they realize that no region is remote enough not to get drowned in advertising letters every morning.

Bill also drew two flying insects and three funny birds.

William Van Horn: “This story emerged from one of my occasional rages about wanting to be several light years away from this chaotic, noisy world we live in. I wished to be able to escape from this organized pandemonium called civilization. When I began to realize that I would just trade one bunch of problems for another one I had my story.”
