“Do these two argue like this all the time?”

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The only solace he could take is that they got underway without Cujo being aware of what they were up to—but that wouldn’t last.

The one thing he could do would be to disappear from the train.

With a few words of encouragement, he left the train—and reappeared in the northeastern Minnesota’s border with Canada.

That just might buy Beauregard’s train enough time.

Episode 6—Scene 3—Inside Beauregard’s Train… “Gentlemen, we’re on our way to freedom from that ‘Posse,’ finally.”

“Where are we going?”

“The Dakotas,” He replied, “We have some delightful business opportunities there and in Wyoming.”

“What kind of opportunities?”

“You guys come well-recommended—but trust must be earned. You haven’t done that—yet.”

Season 16—Adventure 1—PURSUIT—Episode 7—Scene 1—Beauregard’s Train made it to South Dakota—just as Cujo determined where it was heading. She quickly passed that information to the Adventure Train’s Operations Center.

Aboard Beauregard’s train, he made his choices for team leaders, and shared his plan—unfortunately, GENTLE READER, I have no idea what that plan is—it was not shared with me.

Episode 7—Scene 2—Adventure Train… was crossing a large trestle in northern Minnesota when contacted by Cujo. She contacted Chris and advised her of the location & heading of Beauregard’s train.

“Head north into Alberta and then due west,” she said to Clem in the operations center, “At maximum speed. When we’re north of the Black Hills, turn south. That should get us to Deadwood ahead of Beauregard.”

“Roger that, boss,” Clem replied.

No one aboard the train felt the change of course—of COURSE!

“Alright everyone,” Chris was rubbing her hands together in anticipation, “Let’s get down to planning!”

“Joey gets to take lead in all combat!” Boomer exclaimed.

“No—he doesn’t!” Joey said.

“Does!”

“Doesn’t!”

“Do these two argue like this all the time?” Loren asked.

Boomer and Joey simultaneously replied, “Yes.”

Loren glanced at Debra—who was rolling her eyes.

“Get used to it, Loren.”

Episode 7—Scene 3—An hour later, the Adventure Train arrived in Manitoba… And proceeded west until it turned south towards North Dakota.

The banter by our heroes trailed-off and boredom set-in.

They spent their time discussing plans for when they arrive in Deadwood—and came-up with a plan to spend just a little time in town to find a location, and then concentrating upon setting-up their headquarters.

To be CONTINUED…

There was nothing Juco could do about it.

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The apartment was rather small—consisting of a bed & easy chair—of COURSE Joey went directly to the bathroom door.

“There better not be an outhouse behind this door,” He said as he turned the doorknob.

“WOW!” He exclaimed, “It’s HUGE!” Continue reading

“It’s HUGE!”

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Episode 4—Scene 3—“Services Floor” Medical Center… Where they could see “Doc” McLean standing by for any medical needs.

“Okay—Doc has to be a clone, or projection of the doctor.”

“Why do you say that, Debra?” Continue reading

“Where are we going, Cujo?”

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “Why are you following us?” Chris demanded, “It’s not a wise move on your part.”

“Because I want in on this adventure,” Loren replied, “I’m the newest member of the IRL crew on this blog, Loren Kleinschmidt, at your service.”

“It’s okay Chris,” Boomer said, “I invited him.” Continue reading

“They just disappeared…”

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner PREVIOUSLY: The Magnificent Five (Mac replaced Linda, who elected take a much-needed vacation with Ralph and Sarah Cooper had too much business at her shop to participate) were already inside as Boomer pulled-up and parked. The truth of the matter is that he took the scenic route—the one with the most hairpin turns combined with long straight stretches where he could cut-loose and let “Strider” show his stuff.

“Sorry I’m late,” Boomer said as he walked into the Sheriff’s office. Continue reading

Today was different

Pursuit Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The “Magnificent Five” found themselves—quite surprisingly—riding out Deadwood with Jimmy Silverthorn, IV, and Lakota warrior, Chaytan (Hawk). They were on their way to what was known as “Driftwood.”

Driftwood was on sacred Lakota (Sioux) land and Chayton was responsible for reclaiming Driftwood for the Lakota. Continue reading

The assault on Driftwood

Pursuit Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “Because, the Natives want to take it back. It was theirs originally.”

“You’re going to have a fight,” Hickok replied, “You don’t have enough people.”

“Oh—but we do. We have natives meeting us there—enough to easily take Driftwood. And afterwards we’ll deal with Beauregard by bringing him to the 21st Century to stand charges for his multi-time crimes.”

“He’s FROM the 21st Century?” Continue reading

“What about you fellas?”

SEVEN Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “Why not? That’s far faster than riding.”

“Yes—it is. But as soon as you book passage—the stationmaster will notify Wild Bill Hickok in Deadwood,” Boomer replied.

“And he’ll tell him you’re coming,” Jerkovich added, looking at the horse-gun at the end of his column, “With artillery. Get rid of that gun.”

“But…” Continue reading

“You never asked.”

Linda let him ponder that—suspecting he didn’t believe her.

She was correct. Continue reading

“You now take orders from me.”

SEVEN Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The hired-gun hopefuls were saddled-up, and ready to ride, “I sort-of like the thought of being the bad guys for a change.”

“Me too, Linda,” Joey agreed.

“This is something, that since I’ve been with you, I’ve not had the pleasure of letting my bad girl persona loose,” Debra was grinning as she spoke, “This could prove to be fun!” Continue reading
