PREVIOUSLY: “There doesn’t appear to be a hotel in this backwater town.”
“But,” Bill Carstairs replied to AJ, “We can buy supplies here and find a place to camp.”
The townsfolk were a bit taken aback by the sheer number riding into town—but when they purchased supplies at the general store—they settled-down and happily took their money from Carstairs.
Soon the gang left town and found an undisclosed (so far) location in the deep woods to camp.
Episode 5… Scene 3… In the Deep Woods at Carstairs’ Gang Campsite… “We should be safe here!”
“I hope so, big brother,” AJ Carstairs replied, “We must come-up with a better plan—maybe we can find some Indians to help us.”
“That’s a good idea, little brother—get on it!”
Confident he could find some renegade Indians—AJ rode out of camp.
It didn’t take long for the “renegade Indians” to find AJ Carstairs.
Season 18—Adventure 2—Return to Danger Bay—Episode 6… Scene 1… After finding AJ, the Renegade Indians arrived at the Campsite… “This is Running Bear,” AJ introduced the leader of Indians who found—but did not kill him, “He is interested in riding with us.”
“He is interested in riding with us.”
“Welcome Running Bear,” Bill Carstairs greeted, “We would be delighted to have you join us.”
“No—my good man,” Running Bear replied in a British accent,” I daresay, you may join us.”
(Well—that’s something even I didn’t expect. Gentle Reader™!)
“I beg your pardon,” Carstairs replied, “This is my operation.”
“Take it or die, old boy—that’s your only option.”
“If you put it like that—I guess we’ll take it,” Carstairs replied.
Episode 6… Scene 2… On the road outside Danger Bay… “Are you sure this is a good idea?” Linda asked, “We’re badly outnumbered.”
“We’re badly outnumbered.”
“Yup,” Chis Earp replied, “That makes interesting.”
Boomer took a puff off his pipe and added, “What you should know is that Jimmy Silverthorn and his warriors are covering our flank in the forest.”
“That ought to even the odds,” Wyatt observed, “Or put them in our favor.”
“Clearly in our favor,” Ralph Halvorson added.
“Hi-ho—hi-ho, it’s down the road we go,” Boomer sang—off-key.
“STOP!” Linda exclaimed, “Just STOP!”
Boomer ignored his cousin, “Hi-ho—hi-ho, it’s down the road we go, hi-ho-o-o-o-o-o-o!”
