Jack, The link you listed for The Trail of the Loup contains the story line for three of our stages we'll shoot next year. Were did you find the modern photo of the barracks? I built the repro rifle rack in the fore ground. ;D

I sure hope Hardtack can join you. I'm looking forward to seeing him again.

Oh yeah, I'll be in the barracks myself.   Ya know, it reminds me a lot of the barracks I stayed in during Navy Basic up at Great Lakes. 

Lot better actualy.

O'course, they tore that down a decade ago as being no longer suitable for habitation . . .

Ah, the peeling paint, the frozen pipes, the noreasters howling off the lake, whistling thru the gaps round rusting window frames . . .*sniff* . . . good times . . .  :P

Col. Pitspitr:

The baracks image was on this webpage:
http://www.chillihistoryproject.com/narrative.htm

I also came across this image, on a family website chronicling their travels -
the lady seems to be trying to figure out what the heck it is!

I'm really pleased with the intrest being shown in the '08 Muster. The way it's shaping up it looks as though this will be our biggest muster to date.
The barracks is already about a fourth full. I'm keeping a running list of everyone who's expressed interest in staying there. If any of you who have asked for a place in the barracks find out you won't be able to attend be sure to let me know as soon as you find out so that I can move someone else onto the list. This isn't critical yet as it isn't full yet but it sounds as though it will be before next Oct.

Please add me to the list for a bunk.

You may also point out that the post commander has requested no alcohol on site.

Besides, you don't count against the 40 since there's 2 beds in the kitchen.

Pitspitr:

Hello my name is Texas Sarge and this is my first post.  I have been reading the Barracks since July of '06.  I live in Texas around San

Antonio and would like to attend the Grand Muster in Oct. of '08 with two of my shooting buddies, Scooter and Jake Jones.  If you

would put us down for three bunks in the enlisted quarters that would be great.  The photos look great and will be looking forward

to next year.  Thanks

Texas Sarge

Col. Pitspiter, Please put me down for a bunk in the barracks, or even a corner of the stable. Any place out of the rain will do. Looking forward to 08. Al

AAARRRGH!! as Charley Brown would say.

I just received a copy of ENCYCLOPEDIA OF INDIAN WARS Western Battles and Skirmishes, 1850-1890 by Gregory F. Michno
It is an excelent reference with information on even some minor encounters fairly close to my home I wasn't even aware of. It lists the fights chonologically with maps showing battle sites and dates in the front of the book and graphs and tables in the back. I got a "used, like new" hardback from Amazon for $17.10. It easily has to be one of the best values I've ever bought.

I've found so many interesting fights that lend themselves so well to writing stages that I don't know know how I'm going to cull them down to just 10.  ::) Hey I know, anybody up for a week long muster with 6-8 stages per day? No, probably not. :-[ I guess I'll just have to save a few and maybe do a Grand Muster again another time.
