    The legendary MacClean brothers crime spree begain with a betrayal of trust.
    About a month after Bomb Day, the drug lab at the end of Pitts road was destroyed along with the entire staff by the Sheriff department . One of the deputies assigned to dispose of the recoverd drug stash hid a fair sized amount for himself . As an old hand on the force, he had been in the habbit of using the evidence locker as a source of " unauthorized bonuses".
    He had held on to his secret prize untill word got to him about the two punks who now had some real funds to pay for it. After a meeting at the end of an old dirt road and a little haggling, the exchange was made later behind an old ruined store just outside Parsonville.
    The last supply of illegal hard drugs in the valley fit in an old cigar box. It was exchanged for 40 ounzes of gold coin, a beautful mint Luftwaffe marked Luger and a high dollar damascus bladed bowie.
    So much misery came from that small box contriband.
    The brothers promised themselves they would save the stash to sell and become THE drug dealers of the valley. They would have all that came with controlling criminal activity in the area. They manage to resist the temptation to use it themselves of three whole days.

    Yes.
    Some of the characters are leading the story to some dark places. I am reluctant to go there.
    And even worse Tabby Kat stopped talking to me.
    I do want to continue.

    Back to the Lodge
    While Tabby Kat and Youngest got ready for bed, she gave him the news. Their lives were going to change. At first it scared him, scared him more than the news of the Bomb.
    By the light of the candles she saw the young man's expression. She remembered the same look on Slim a generation before.
    He started to speak probably some nonsense, but she placed her fingers to his lips.
    She said "don't speak...... feel. No not that kind of feel........ Don't think....... be still. Anyway I have been through this before."
    As he settled down for the night he he understood he was with who he loved and loved him and everything else was of little importance.
    They went to sleep in each others arms.............................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. ..........................

    The next day he had to talk to someone about it but could not tell his parents. those of his own generation were out of the question so he spoke to his older brother in the workshop.
    When Oldest heard about Kat's pregnancy he almost laughed, but saw how worried his younger brother was.
    "Oliver ..... you will make it through this. Tabby Kat is a strong woman. We are all with you." They spoke for a while. Then
    Youngest went off to the days task but he did not feel any better.
    Oldest had just got similar news from his wife , but the forth is not as scary as the first one.
    The older brother started working on the third vehical to be converted. Oldest smiled as he worked. He had just finished the conversion of the second Jeep, and now Bubba would not have to deal with Mr MacClean for the use of the Methane powered vehical. That would save the Lodge leader at lot of time and agrivation.The Silver Mine Road community would now have enough tranportation.
    Down in Parsonville they finished the steam electic project. An old steam engine found in an old workshow was rebuilt and connected to a generator. They now had electric power for the clinic and the Ham radio set in town.
    They did a lot of listening but little transmitting. Then Holy Joe started to hear some different news broadcasted. This had the ring of truth, and if you understood it's significance it implied GOOD NEWS.
    Holy Joes started to feel something he had not felt since the begining, hope. Even though he had been putting on a brave face to reassure the community he had been barely hanging on. Even though he had been giving it everthing he had , he felt like the band leader on the Titanic.
    He told the radio team to keep listening for news about certain names and places.

    It was inevitible that the MacClean brothers would consume their new drug stash. They had grand plans of selling sparingly only to wealthy customers untill they could some how replinish their supply. But remember these were teenagers.The would be drug lords first had to sample their product. Which led to a binge where their fortune went up in smoke. Jesse had the presence of mind to hide one last bag for a final celebration. Then came the post high let down, what made it worse was the terrible realization that they would never get their favorite buzz any more, ever. It is a terrible thing to be a teenager and know the thing that make life worth living is gone.
    After a long loud dressing down by their father over the resent spell of shirking off work which even he could not tolerate, they came up with a plan to go out in a blaze of glory. From what their hostages said these drug addled punks were obsssessed with a horror movie about a family of rural serial killers. But first they would need hot female "costars".
    For a few days the two junior desperados worked or at least made a serious pretense of working. As the brothers waited for the right time they gathered gear and plans.
    When no one was around to stop it they gased up their fathers car, loaded up gear and off they went. They were going to live out a movie.
    The first thing, pick up girls. At a stop a the Sinclaire's they were told to buzz off. The girls there were wise to these losers and no joy ride was worth having to be around them. Then the two remembered in Parsonville where some of popular high school girls lived and decided to try their luck.
    In town they found out the popular blondes that nomally would have nothing to do with these social losers. But now these boys had TRANSPORTATION. Since bomb day life had been a miserible time of fear, poor, food , bordom and low tech house work. A joy ride with anybody would be welcome. There was no joy on this ride.
