They were outnumbered three to one

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: The bodies buried, the wagon driver was headed back to Forest City, when he saw a bunch of riders approaching. Those riders were—of course, our Rootin’-Tootin’ Posse.

They had ridden straight through Forest City as they had no business there.

The driver tipped his hat as they passed on his way back to Forest City.

The dog-people were distracted as they were escorting their humans by the scent of death. That scent led them to a freshly covered mass gravesite.

“Humans are buried here—very recently,” Cleo, after sniffing the dirt, declared, “We must tell the humans!” Continue reading

“You gonna bury them poor folks?”

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “You will take the stagecoach to Moosehead City,” Amos continued, “There you will take-over our operations there—with Mr. Carlson in overall charge of the operation.”

“No, Mr. Bannon,” Carlson replied, “We can handle this.”

The others nodded in agreement.

Too bad—they would die along the way.

After they left, Bannon smiled, “That takes care of one problem—they won’t blow our cover.”

“Neither will I,” Lea replied, in a voice that left no doubt who was REALLY in charge. Continue reading

“Six-hundred—or we walk.”

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “We are in danger here,” Abigail Anders replied, “There is a force of lawmen and native warriors about to strike here.”

“And,” McGinty added, “even though our gunslingers are likely to defeat them, we simply can’t afford to be caught.”

“There’s a train due to arrive within the hour—we have board that train and get out-of-town.”

“To where?”

“Forest City,” Anders replied, “We’ve not bothered with that town—and we won’t. At least not until if, and when, we succeed in Moosehead City and Danger Bay.” Continue reading

“I am Chaska-Kohana…”

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Sarah Cooper, Chris Shouse, Wyatt Earp, Lacey Dalton-Shouse, James Butler Hickok, Calamity Jane Canary, Joey Jerkowitz, Linda Bryant Halvorson and Debra Wennen Miller (along with their dog-people—covering both flanks running through the forest), had thus far, an uneventful journey.

They noticed the terrain had become more Moosehead County and less Northtown like.

They were also becoming uneasy, as they weren’t completely certain of what they were expected to accomplish.

After hours of uneventful travel—they heard rustling in the brush behind them. Continue reading

They were becoming uneasy

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “Kuckunniwi (Little Wolf)?” Ani smiled, “It is time to pass the lance of war chief to you—it is your time.”

“But mother—what of the Elders?”

“They decided I was too old to continue as war chief—at my insistence—and voted in favor of you to replace me. Do you accept?”

“I am honored.” Continue reading

“But mother—what of the Elders?”

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: And to you, Enapay Chatan,” Boomer replied, “It is too long since last we spoke.”

“And how are my descendants?”

“Prospering—as always,” Boomer replied, “And very happy.”

“We had visitors, and I fear they bring trouble,” Samuel had become serious, “I fear there is a storm coming.”

“That is why we are here.”

“You are but one,” Samuel replied, and turned towards James, “You must assemble our riders, and prepare for battle.” Continue reading

They may be unbeatable

PIONEER DANGER BAY Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “I expect we’ll have some problems with Silverthorn.”

“I agree, boss,” Thomas replied, “They’ll be the first we should eliminate.”

“I hear there’s a town a bit north of here, Moosehead City, with a Town Marshal’s office,” Smith said, “That’s where we’ll have the rest of our boys meet up. If we can take-over Moosehead City…”

“The rest of the county will become ours,” Rand finished James’ sentence. Continue reading

“Any idea where they were headed?”

Northtown Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 5—Northtown—Episode 9—Scene 1… Northtown Saloon… Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp was not in the mood—and although not the fastest gun in the west—was certainly faster than any of these four miscreants.

He was also a very good marksman. Continue reading

“We ain’t givin’ up our guns!”

Northtown Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 5—Northtown—Episode 8—Scene 1… McGinty & Anders hotel room… “We have as many as 30 experienced shootists coming,” McGinty said, “The first bunch should arrive today. Have you made arrangements with the hotel and rooming house?”
