Re: Mules at San Vicente

The terrain is not that much different than they would have experienced back in the states other than a higher elevation. Horses would be more than capable and be an advantage over mules.

After the robbery, no horses, mules, sled dogs, goats, rickshaws staged for a quick escape either.

    Because mules are very good if not better in rough rocky and hilly terrain. Nothing stupid using a mule, think Tom Horn and General Crook. Didn't they also have an automatic pistol and binoculars?... more

        Bonnie and Clyde drive a tank instead of that old Ford. They should have known Hamer and his murder squad were there waiting for them.

          Why didnt Sundance stop correspondence with Samanna after San Vicente? After all, he's supposed to be dead. Quite a trick.

            This is why you need to go to Bolivia . Or at least studied the subject.All the mine's in the area used mules as they were must stronger in that elevation plus had more wind /lung power. Hudgeon's... more

              Not only that, but you need small mules ideally at the higher elevations. Large ones wear out quick

                Now, here's something. Normally, when a question is raised or an assumption made I like to go back to the beginning and double-check the basic facts, following the two-fisted mantra, what is it, and... more

                  The bottom line is, horses are not the best beasts in the high Andes. One might even argue a llama is better than a mule in some instances because they are fine in the mountains but have a better... more

                    Vince most of your comments I respect But if your suggesting a llama being used as a mount after a robbery you've come unhinged. Maybe we should try armadillo riding too.

                      I'm talking about burden beasts in the Andes in general, not by Butch and SD after a robbery. Llamas are native to the place and most acclimated to functioning in the high mountains, and have a good... more
