    I see your are from Bisbee! mr.uintas lived in Bisbee for a while back in the late 60s to early 70s. He lived in a converted bread truck while he was making his way back to Panama where he grew up. Old hippie days.....

            I wasn't with him then. He grew up in the Canal Zone and went back to talk with his wayayyy over controlling dad about his life choices and wanted to prove he could get all the way down there by himself with few resources.

            His time in Bisbee was pretty short, he spent more time in Dragoon in a hippie house there. It took him a long time to achieve his quest, including learning what jumping cactus was and riding the railroad with chickens and goats to Mexico city. Then on to the Zone.

            Cheers to you!

              painful experience.  Chickens and goats on the train? Much better.
