“I saw a black car below in the trees.”

Strykerville Banner ©Jack BoardmanSeason 14—Adventure 2—Strykerville—Episode 5—Scene 1… An Undisclosed Location… “You did WHAT?” Sylvester Farenholt was more than a little—perturbed—with his two minions, “Did I not tell you to lose those suits? Did I not tell you to keep a low profile? Threatening business-owners thus making our presence here OBVIOUS to even the most thick-headed locals? What have you done with your car? What did you do with the truck you stole—after killing its owners? Your survival depends upon you answers—ANSWER ME!

Farenholt confronted James & Larson ©Jack Boardman“…ANSWER ME!”

The two stumbled and stuttered, hemmed and hawed, and finally gave up any attempt to answer.

“We’ll fix it boss,” Andrew “Curly” James asserted, “Right now!”

Before “Boss” Farenholt could speak, the two rushed out the door and set about making things right.

Episode 5—Scene 2… Still—an undisclosed location out on the gravel road First, they changed their clothing—to better fit in with the locals. Then they took the stolen truck back out the gravel road to a deep marsh, placed a rock on the gas pedal and jammed the transmission into “drive.”

The truck landed deep in the marsh and quickly submerged beneath the surface.

“I expect we’d best get walking—why didn’t we take a second car?”

“Because we’re not all that bright?”

“Obviously,” Larson laughed, “On the other hand, we might be able to avoid the boss when we get back.”

“You ARE a bit delusional,” Curly replied, “Maybe we’ll actually survive another meeting with the boss.”

“We may hope.”

Episode 5—Scene 2… Still—an undisclosed location… Larson & James were a little surprised—and a lot relieved when they reported back to Farenholt, who’s only comment was, “Thank you, boys, now get out of here—go visit the town of Danger Bay and make nice to the locals.”

Episode 5—Scene 3… Above Moosehead CR 65 Northeast of Strykerville… Mac with Sarah Cooper (in the Night-Lighting) with Joey (in the P51B Mustang flying wing, and Debra (in the Hellcat), with Lacey (in a P51C Mustang) on her wing, were flying over Moosehead County Road 65 when Sarah spotted the black car the gangsters had been driving, “I saw a black car below in the trees.”

Mac & company found the black car ©Jack Boardman“I saw a black car below in the trees.”

“To all,” Mac ordered, “follow me—Sarah spotted a black car!”

They made another pass and noted the exact coordinates of the black car—which Sarah radioed to Sheriff Boomer.

Upon getting the coordinates, Boomer ordered all available deputies to respond with lights and sirens to the car’s location.

From all corners the sheriff’s deputies converged on CR 65…
