About Paul L. McMurray

Paul McMurray grew up on the SW side of Chicago (one block from Midway Airport) and then lived in nearby suburbs. He stayed out of serious trouble thanks to his strict-but-kind mom and a top-ranking relative on the CPD. He worked a lot of jobs, including selling insurance in the “inner city”, where he had a loaded gun pointed at his head twice (by undercover cops, not residents) but didn’t get shot, and learned to look out for roving packs of feral dogs. He also remembers gratefully the many good people there who checked the windows first so he didn’t get robbed and/or his butt kicked. He then joined his family in owning and running the 2nd largest private campground in SE Wisconsin (at the time and may still be), and still writes about camping mishaps at scoopjackson.net, where his alter-ego resides. He travels frequently to Chicago for more "research" on Zak and Freddy capers, which usually involves Italian beef sandwiches and beer. And, of course, White Castles.

Just the facts Ma'am! Yes, Mrs. Kania is correct. Believe it or not these stories did actually happen and I've seen the spiders get eaten live before, it's unbelievable!

Another good book from Scoop that's well worth the time (and dollar!). Also can be used as a literal guide to camping!

Thanks Scoop!

Scoop Jackson reports the facts, just the facts- with added detail only he is privy(ha-ha)to!
And yes, I am the lucky woman married to the spider eater written about in these crazy camping tales.
During one camping adventure, I didn't serve dinner quickly enough. He was hungry after consuming a few cocktails, and he proceeded to swallow three daddy long leg spiders in front of our young children!! Help me.....Now he has a discerning palate for cicadas- Thank goodness they only come out every 17 years
