Great Collector Item - Teasers
« Reply #2 on: March 01, 2007, 04:26:19 PM »
This is really a great collector item.  It talks a lot about the history of the area.  
Quote
Before entering the Big Bend National Park, we should get a picture of it in our minds, first as a whole then in smaller portions when we draw near enough to observe.


Quote
The Rosillos Mountains are now showing up to advantage.  "rosillo" means "roan" in Spanish.  It is the word that the cowboy calls his roan, or reddish brown horse.


Quote
I like to think of the Chisos Mountains as the heart of the Big Bend National Park.  The main artery to the Basin in the Chisos is the highway from Marathon.  The veins of the heart are the canyons and peaks which the visitors go out to see


Quote
Mrs. Moss made much good butter for  the family.  Southwest of the well is a small cave.  In this cave there is a spring which comes to the surface as a spray.  Back of this constant spray, in a small crevice, Mrs. Moss kept her butter, cold and sweet, for the family.


Quote
One of the most interesting trips from the Basin is that to Santa Helena Canyon.....
 NOTE:  Santa Helena Canyon was the name before NPS took over and named it Santa Elena...  (for whatever reason).

Where is that cave with a spraying spring?  Wait... don't answer that.  We will have to buy the book if we wanna know.

That tid-bit is worth the $25 that I just bid!

Called good marketing....  "The Cliff Hanger...Tune in Next Season to find out who shot JR!"  Hey, it's for a good cause....

Of course, NPS BIBE might want to keep it all a secret and top all bids so that they can lock it up behind closed doors  :P

Well I broke Arnold and got a few more bucks.  But just enough to match you at $35.  Now I'm gonna have to get permission from the boss before going any higher.

I normally snipe bid (scheduled bid in the last few seconds) to avoid being outbid or driving the price too high.  But hey, this is for a good cause and I'd be glad to pay too much (especially, if it helps me find that cave with the spraying spring).

As a fellow snipe bidder, I agree with you about running the price up too high first. But I hope I don't have to ask my boss for any $. She might not let me play on the computer anymore.

Stuck...

We Seem to Be Stuck @ $35 for this great cause of keeping this board solvent....  

Yea, you get the library fine too... :shock:  :P

This is a fine book, written only when the park was four years old or so.

Since this is for a good cause, I entered a maximum bid of $45.00. So feel free to bid $44.99 to run the current bid up to $45.00.

You're wish is my command.  But, don't get too comfortable with your winning bid.  I'm counting change and sweet talking the boss (wife).  I may yet outbid you.
