G’mornin’ Erik,” Marshal Williams quickly told Erik and Susan of Mac’s request, “Mac asked specifically for you wait here for him to arrive. You’ll need some pack mules and supplies.”

I can send a message to Grand Marais, they have a good supply of canned food a the Mercantile,” Susan was already planning, “and the boys can rig this wagon as a chuckwagon—at least we can have civilized meals.”

Erik wondered to himself, “Why me? I’m no lawman. Mac must have a reason.”

Season VI, Chapter 3 Trackdown, Episode 3:

They gathered at Williams’ Station several hours later and began initial preparations for their mission—tracking down the killer of Angus McGilllicudy.

They gathered at Williams' Station several hours later...

They had no idea at this time just how far and for how long they would be away from Moosehead County, and leaving the good people to fend for themselves for a very long time.

They would miss the wedding of James Kuckunniwi Silverthorn and Nitika-Keezeekoni, and the courship and marriage of Medlar Farkleberry and Annie Mathilda Goldenrod, among the more important happenings in the county.

Mac was grateful that all he requested showed up, “We haven’t much time to waste on formalities. Here—each one of you take one of these, and raise your right hand.”

Mac appointed Susie as chief deputy ©2012 Jack Boardman

He gave each, save for Larry & Boomer, a Deputy US Marshal's badge...

And then he swore them in, “Where we’re going, we’ll need you to be federal marshals, making you all deputies has been authorized by regional marshal in St. Louis.”

Of all present, Susan was the most surprised; she was happy just to be going in an adventure, “Are you sure I should have this?”

I’m sure. Susie will be my chief deputy, because of her experience in Hartle’s Corners, and in tracking Adelbert Simpson III all the way to Danger Bay.”

Susie didn’t waste any time, “We’re leaving within’ the hour, get busy packing the supplies, the trail is getting colder by the minute.”
