August 24, 2007 Bonus Blog
I got this from Gus Walker this afternoon:

Handcar Handicap
"In that True West Moment that's running on the Westerns Channel right now, after you jump on the handcar and yell yee-haw and go off camera there is a pause and then some kind of wha hoo yell. did you fall off the handcar or what?"
—Gus Walker

No, I didn't fall off, but it was a scary stunt, because the handcar had a step-brake lever right in the middle of where I had to jump. We asked the two pretty girls pumping the handcar to really get going and I would catch up to the camera, mounted on a golf cart, and leap onto the moving handcar. And if I missed the jump by a couple inches I would land on that brake and probably go head first off the other side. For a sixty-year-old guy, this wasn't easy, but I made it, and I think the extra Wha Hoo! was half a reaction to actually making it. Ha.
