Kari's Cast
I just need a few more fingers... or a tail!

You might be wondering now why it's been so long since your last Jungle News... and why Kari isn't writing to you herself. Well, that's partly because of all the work and planning and painting for the Vegas event... partly because she's learned about Facebook (and wants you to be her friend!)... and partly because the bright purple cast on her arm makes it really hard to type! I'm sorry to tell you, our founder and fearless leader has broken her wrist. Ouch!

And how did that happen, you're now wondering? Well, you might have heard that Kari lost her grip while brachiating through Thunderdome with Goldie. Nope, that's not it. Or could it be that she fell out of a tree while playing chase with Clyde? Nope, guess again.

Goldie hangs out in Thunderdome
without Kari.
Clyde up a tree...
without Kari

Hmm, it seems the rumors are a lot more interesting than the real story, so why spoil the mystery? I'm inviting you to play along...
