Tony, let’s start with you. What can you tell us about Harper’s Inlet and what happened to you three brave boys?
TONY: Well, because we stopped some pretty bad people from bringing any more drugs in through our port, we can’t use the real name of our town for the new book.
SAM: You know, it was a small town in Alabama, but they changed the real name. And in that story, the peoples’ names were changed too.
INTERVIEWER: I see. And Tony, I understand that one of your father’s boats was destroyed in the storm.
TONY: Biggest storm I ever saw. That boat didn’t have a chance.
INTERVIEWER: Did you get in trouble for that?
TONY: Boy did I ever!
TYLER: We all got grounded.
SAM: That’s true.
INTERVIEWER: Sam, how did you boys survive out there?
SAM: I’d rather one of the guys tell it.
TONY: I will. Sam’s the kinda guy who can figure out just about anything. He knows how to build a shelter, start a fire, find food and water…he knew everything.
TYLER: Yeah, and the signal fires. Don’t forget about the signal fires he had us make.
INTERVIEWER: Did you learn anything from your experiences in the storm and on the island?
SAM: We learned that it’s important to tell the truth, and that if you’re gonna go someplace, make sure you tell somebody and that you get permission.
TONY: That's for sure. At least then the Coast Guard would have known where to look for us. That was my fault.
TYLER: It was all our faults.
INTERVIEWER: Are you still afraid now?
TONY: The FBI and the drug officers did a good job of hiding who we are and where we really live. But since Lost Island, we’ve had some other amazing adventures. I think they might write a book about those too.
INTERVIEWER: And what are they?
TONY: Captain Jack’s Treasure and River Rampage.
SAM: But we shouldn’t give away any of the stories. Else nobody’d wanna buy the books.
INTERVIEWER: I see. Are there any other adventures in your future?
TYLER: I sure hope not. Only, with these two, anything could happen.
TONY: Yeah, and it probably will.
SAM: It’s not that bad.
INTERVIEWER: I have this sketch of you boys. Do you think that could be dangerous for you?
SAM: With the drug guys?
TONY: Nah. I’m not really that fat anyway, and Sam doesn’t look that good.
TYLER: You are too, Tony.
TONY: Watch it Erickson.
INTERVIEWER: Well, it’s been a pleasure talking with you brave boys. And I’ll be careful to keep your identities and location secret. Is there anything more you’d like to tell my readers?
SAM: Sure. I hope somebody makes a movie about one of our adventures some day.
TYLER: That’d be so cool.
