the morris family were on a two week vacation at yellow stone national park. andre hated nature and he hated spending time with his family. he was 15 and definitely old enough to be left alone at home while the family was away on vacations. at least that's what he argued. even if he had to stay in the house for all 12 days, anything was better than sitting in a compact rental car with his two sisters, mom and dad in the middle of some mountains in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do and nowhere to go.
