“We need some nondescript cars and trucks”

Pursuit Twenty-First Century Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: The Posse unloaded their cars and stopped at the town marshal’s office where they reported-in and explained their mission, “Oh great. Just what we need—a gang of criminals! OK, I’ll give you all the help I can.”

“We’ll need a place to stay while we’re here,” Chris said, “Any suggestions?”

The marshal grinned, “I just happen own a cabin, just outside of town—it is vacant and for rent, “You’re welcome to use it for as long as you’re here.”

“We’ll take it!”

Season 16—Adventure 1—PURSUIT—Episode 9—Scene 1—The Posse found the marshal’s cabin… It was on a dirt road about five miles out of Deadwood and had an abandoned but still in good condition, RR track running beside it.

A very handy place to park the Adventure Train.

There was plenty of room for everyone—with serviceable quarters both up, and downstairs.

Joey didn’t even bother to check for modern facilities—to everyone’s surprise.

Episode 9—Scene 2—Beauregard arrived in Deadwood… “We need some nondescript cars and trucks,” Beauregard said, “And a place to stay. Fan-out and find what we need. “I’m going to the café to get an idea what is going-on around here in the 21st Century.”

Four of his men rented a car at the depot and drove to various car lots in Deadwood and purchased the most ordinary cars they could find.

While the four were out obtaining cars, Beauregard sent the remaining fellows out into Deadwood to act as tourists—visit the shops—visit the saloon in which Hickok was assassinated.

We must give some credit to his men—they played the “tourist” role very-well indeed.

Tombstone-shaped salt & pepper shakers, picture-frames, and greeting-cards were purchased—selfies snapped in Nuttal & Mann’s Saloon—and simply wandering about the tourist-trap part of the town were all part of their act.

Episode 9—Scene 3—Inside the El Gato Saloon… Beauregard went to the bar and asked about finding accommodations for his tour-group.

Sally “Red” Sloan, the bartender, nodded towards a fellow wearing a brown suit, “That’s Bill Williams over yonder—he owns an abandoned log-cabin motel out along the railroad-tracks. Check with him. All the other places are booked.”

“Thank you,” He replied.

“Excuse me, Mr. Williams?”

“Hello,” Williams replied, “How may I help you?”

“I’m looking to find rooms for my tour-group and I understand you own some cabins.”

“Unfortunately, I do—there was a scenic highway planned some years ago that didn’t pan-out. I foolishly thought I’d get in on the ground-floor, so to speak. You would like to rent them?”

“Yes. How much?”

“Two-hundred per night for each cabin. There are four.”

“Really?”

“Too much?”

“No—I’ll pay in advance for two weeks,” Beauregard smiled, “And if required, will extend our stay.”

“Deal!”

Thus ends this Adventure—but our story? To be CONTINUED…
