Saturday, November 10, 1984. Max and Charles are off on a "guys' getaway" with their stepfather, Fred. The trip takes them to Kent and Queen Anne's counties, located on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
It's Veterans Day Weekend, and Fred has planned this trip around history to show the boys a few important sites from Colonial times and the Civil War era. Included in the "getaway package" is meeting old and new friends. And a very important reason for the trip is to find a new home for Miss Starry Eyes, a wild Canada goose who was rescued and raised by their grandparents.
During the weekend, some plans will unfold as Fred hoped, but many new people, twists and turns, fill this Saturday-into-Sunday morning with unexpected adventures.
