Stanley just gets to Camp Green Lake where he meets Zero. There he has to dig holes 5 feet deep and 5 feet wide.
Stanley was arrested because he was convicted of a crime of which he didn't do. A pair of Clyde Livingston's shoes fell and hit him in the head. He thought it was a sign and ran away with the shoes. Then the cops got him.
As Stanley dug he found a fossil. When the water truck came Stanley went to the end of the line to get his canteen filled. The guy filling them up said, "The Warden is not interested in fossils."
Stanley and Zero escaped and went to God's Thumb. Zero fainted and Stanley had to carry him to the top. There he finds water and onions.
Stanley and Zero decided to go and dig where he found the treasure to try and find more. They found that it was covered with yellow spotted lizards. The Warden found them that night while they were digging. Later, Stanley's lawyer came and got him and Zero because they found that they were innocent.
In the end, Zero and Stanley watch his dad's commercial about Sploosh.
