Synopsis

Jack and Leo, rivals for the love of Vera during the past 7 years, arrive at the same time to propose marriage and find that she has married Gideon, an older man whom they regard as a lecher. To relieve their disappointment they take a camping trip, during which they try to forget Vera. The memories of their respective courtships will leave them no peace, however: the quiet, awkward Leo recalls his yearly summer visits with Vera; while the handsome, impetuous Jack remembers his yearly winter visits. While the rivals reminisce, they go on several drunken binges, and their camping excursion is beset by difficulties: a campfire becomes a rampant blaze; chasing bears, the campers find a tree full of women; and finally, they run afoul of two escaped convicts engaged in a shoot-out.
