“Cujo!” Kiwi exclaimed.
“I have removed all clear memories of all who met our friends in 1873 Moosehead County and Grand Marais—it was necessary.”
“Are they returning then?”
“They are here now, but will leave soon.”
“Back to 1873 Danger Bay?”
“No, that is no longer possible.”
Season VI, Chapter 5 Coldwater Ranch, Episode 1:
Both Hiram and Kiwi Silverthorn were loyal to their friends; Kiwi had to know, “But—why?”
“They could return, but they would not be recognized, their destiny in 1873 is now in Dakota Territory, and specifically in Dreadwood—where their help is needed.”
“I know South Dakota, I have friends living there—Dakotah friends—and there is no Dreadwood in South Dakota.”
“There isn’t now. At least if our friends do what I expect them to do. If they fail, South Dakota’s history will change, and not for the better.”
“AR-ROOO!!! Ringo!!!” Daisy exclaimed.
“Ah Akecheta-Apenimon CanineKnight of the Realm, it is good to see you once again,” Ringo Wolvenking replied and turning to the others, “You have been gone from 2012 for two weeks, and Cujo has planned for you to vacation here for a couple of weeks before returning to Dakota Territory—where you will have much to accomplish.”
“We were beginning construction of the Coldwater Ranch,” Mac rumbled, “there remains much to be done there.”
“The story-line requires it to be completed upon your return—so it will be. That is beyond either Cujo’s or my powers, but not the powers of the Codger™”
“What of my business in Williams’ Station?” Susan asked.
“It is doing well, your step-sons believe you’re starting a new Seven Tables in Dreadwood as it should be.”
“May I keep my helmet & goggles when we return?” Flutters squawked.
“We are limiting your time away from the present to two days—more for your recreation as the most important part of your time-travel is done—filling in the gaps in Danger Bay history. Cujo has perfected her time-warp capability to allow for longer visits to the past with shorter real time absenses. Now go out and enjoy yourselves.”
