I had to add a comment here. I've just read this story for the third time, and I swear it gets better every time I read it. This is an A Number 1 story from start to finish. Great work, great writing, especially on the characters, who were totally believable. Just a terrific read.

Thanks so much for taking the time to put this up.

Holy zombie crap ! What a great story. Good thing for me, I came in after it was finished and got to read the whole story without having to wait for MOAR. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. REALLY loved it. Got to read it all in one sitting, lucky me. LOL
Thank you very much for the time and effort you put into your stories.

Wow. I found this late yesterday, which means I didnt get to sleep til very late last night after finishing the whole thing. Read it "cover to cover", so to speak. I think this one would have driven me crazy to read in installments.

AWESOME story, Ponyboy.

Great story, Ponyboy, and many thanks!

Just finished for the third time, and it was just as good as the first time. The first was as good as it gets.

Man how did I miss this story when I found y'all a couple years ago?

Great read PB!

Seriously thinking about taking my family spring skiing up in Taos...used to head down there when my girlfriend (now wife of 25 years!) and I were in college in CO back in the late 80's. I know we've been through Red River but now I feel the need to visit...and maybe sneak onto the roof of the convention center to pose for a hero shot while shouting "Wolverines!"

Awesome job!

You forgot Beauregard, one of my personal favorites of PB's.

Third time through for me. So obviously a great story. But each time through I see Henry as Sheriff Tim Mueller(Linn Or.)

This one gives me a lot of good ideas - I don’t think you’re on here anymore PonyBoy but if you happen to stop by I appreciate all of the hard work and effort you put into these stories.
