Breaking camp

Previously:

Welcome back, Erik,” Boomer laughed, “What’s brilliant?”

As far as I know neither this Kidd fellow nor McLintock were ever in Williams’ Station and since Susan & I are not well-known as peace officers—we could pull it off without suspicion. We’re the only ones among us who could do that.”

There was complete silence as the marshals mulled this over.

Season VI, Chapter 4 Predators and Victims, Episode 4:

When both Blackmon and Mac slowly began to smile, Susan & Erik knew it was time to prepare for their ruse.

We’ll stop in the next town for a couple of days, but we must arrive separately,” Mac really liked the plan after considering it a bit, “We’ll separate in the morning with the Professor and Susan following us by an hour or two. We’ll keep the mule-train with us.”

The following morning they enjoyed a leisurely breakfast…

The following morning they enjoyed a leisurely breakfast before breaking camp and continuing their mission. The plan devised by Susan and Erik seemed just as good, after sleeping on it, as it did when they discussed it last night.

The exhausted Larry FlutterMatters was absent from breakfast and sleeping in the back of Susan’s chuck wagon—even the breakfast preparation didn’t cause him to so much as stir in his sleep. They left him to sleep, certain he was dreaming of the “Mythical Master.”

We’ve agreed the Susan and Erik will give us an hour’s lead time before departing,” US Marshal Carl McIntyre rumbled, “And I see they’ve removed their badges—good, I’d forgotten to mention that.”

The rest of us will go directly to the town of Huron,” Chief Deputy US Marshal Susie Blackmon continued the plan review, “and spend two days resting and preparing our part of this ruse.”

A hotel full of marshals is bound to cause some talk in Huron,” Deputy US Marshal Larry Yatkowsky chimed in, “and that kind of talk spreads faster than Flutters can fly.”

Then let’s give them something to talk about,” Blackmon replied, “We’ve been ordered to go to Cheyenne, Wyoming Territory. We’ll let them speculate why.”

Oh good,” Deputy US Marshal Boomer Jack Boardman cracked, “Something to brag about in the saloon, over a beer.”

Deputy US Marshals Cooper and Shouse simply sighed. In unison.

  2. Oh yes… giving them something to talk about is a Blackmon ‘pleasure’ – – now where are those wranglers and loggers? Fifty Shades of Grey’s got nothing on the Marshal. Ha ha ha.

    “Mythical Master”

    Indeed methinks thinks Fluttermatters, there seems to be amongst us those who have not and possibly never will be invited to the river of all knowledge in the highest and bluest of blue mountains east of the left coast.

      It must make you feel “special” to be all by yourself in this “knowledge:”
