“We got some news, Boss.”

KIDNAPPED Banner ©Jack BoardmanPreviously: Aboard a Tour Bus on High Bluff Overlook Road… This is one of the most popular non-lake tours available in Moosehead County, following the entire bluff line from near Grand Marais all the way to the north county line.

I’m not bringing you here for giggles—or to elicit a height-induced nosebleed—but to suggest that perhaps—just perhaps, Kiwi is correct in her surmise they are on a high bluff.

Just look at the view, GENTLE READER!

You couldn’t get me to stand near that guard rail!

Then again I could be misdirecting you—not that I would EVER do such a thing…

Season 13—Adventure 6—KIDNAPPED—Episode 5—Scene 1… In a cabin not far from the Silverthorns…

“Now that we got them, what are we gonna do, Martha?”

Angry Loner’s Cabin ©Jack Boardman“Now that we got them, what are we gonna do, Martha?”

“Let them be missing for a week or two before we make our demands,” Martha Radatz, leader of this group of misfits, losers, & angry loners replied, “Let’em search until they’re ready go give-up—then we’ll make contact.”

“What about the Silverthorns?”

“They have a week’s worth of food—we’ll let them stew for a while.”

KIDNAPPED—Episode 5—Scene 2… on High Bluff Road… Sheriffs Boomer and AJ stopped on the overlook—curiously, just feet from where the Silverthorns were held as prisoners, “Thanks, Pops, for loaning me Shadowfax—he’s a hoot to drive.”

“I’ve been meaning to talk you about him—he’s yours, if you want him.”

“Do I want him?” Andrew asked rhetorically, “But why?”

“I’m divesting myself of all but my ’56 Ford Ranch wagon and Strider, all else are going. I’ll make a list and offer them to our IRL crew first.”

“Thanks,” AJ grinned, “Shadow will make a great undercover car.”

“I heard a rumor—you’ve given notice at the airfield?”

“Yep, and my assistant has applied for the job—she loves the administrivia of the job, and the hands-on supervision of airfield staff—I couldn’t ask for a better replacement.”

“Hey look! Company’s coming,” Boomer turned towards the approaching vehicles, “The gang’s all here!”

Sure enough—the A-Team pulled-up, “We got some news, Boss.”

“Don’t keep me in suspenders, Mac…”

“You don’t wear them,” Mac replied, “But with your gut…”

“We got a line on the next group of hitmen,” Chris got right down to business, “There’s a bus-load just leaving Danger Bay—and looks like they’re heading for this road.”

“How convenient!”

“We can get to the intersection with this road and set-up an ambush—Lets move, folks!”
