Do you wish that your wilderness experience
could include a sauna? Is making your own to much work? Behold the solution!

Family members had toys (including a Mr. T
doll) around the boys bed and doctors noticed that his muscles twitched each
time Mr. T's name was said out loud.
"Somebody told the doctors I was in

kid, I always new he would be put to good use though I never could figure out
