1939 "Trip Report"
« on: June 21, 2012, 10:43:43 PM »
Found this link on Dr. Doug's site.  No need to watch it all at once; to be savored.  26 minutes long with the Chisos featured at the end.  Almost as good as Richard's historical trip report.  Wish I could have a burro in Big Bend!  Enjoy.

I agree.  Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Al.

They also have some of Peter Koch's work on that site...
Ah Big Bend, we will soon return to reacquaint ourselves in our ritual of blood, exhaustion and dehydration. How can we resist the temptation to strip ourselves of the maladies of civilization?

Thanks Al!

So is my mind just making up crap  :confuse:, or is there a chance that Gilberto Luna (Luna's Jacal) is holding the rope @7:59?? (inset photo he is approx. ten years older) 



Here is Jose Falcon as a child playing with a dog and a barrel.


OK, I'm joking  :eusa_liar:, I made that last up just to give my first suggestion more validity. :icon_rolleyes:

 :icon_lol: :icon_lol: :icon_lol:...Ok, you made me read that, in detail FM.. :eusa_clap:.

  But that kid, got me podenring all weekend long: From the year that video was made (1939) he looks to be 4-6 years old. That kid is between 78 and 80 years old by today standards....or he is already muerto.
Stay thirsty, my friends.

FM, exactly the penetrating insight I was hoping for! 

I must say the inset picture looks more than 10 years older.  Very distinctive face though!  Perhaps a son?

We can only imagine which is one of my favorite thing to do!
