Thanks Joe!
But.. Oh, well, I'm not the expert #1 when it comes to computer business.
I opened that picture trail thing yesterday, and now they're already deleted?
Is there anotherway of getting URL's ?

The pics show me (right) and members of our old gang.
In Germany we have quite a few club's celebrating and living the spirit of the old west. Once a year there's a big event where all clubs do meet for a weeks. At least 1000-2000 cowboys, indians, civil war soldiers, mountain men... and, veeery few, Mexicans. To be a Mexican is the best job - a lot of siesta, a LOT of fiesta, fighting the apaches here and there, dancing and women.

Help me get this picture working and there's more Smiley
Mike

lol, don't know what you are trying to do, in the brackets on each end it has to be img in one and /img in the other for the picture to show. Grin

The way I do it is pick on the icon that shows a picture above the smiley faces where you post a message then the brackets show up side by side, then you have to put your cursor in between them then paste the image link in between the brackets, or I think you can paste the image link first, then highlight it them pick the image icon.

Made it Ma! Top of the world!

By now I'm doing that kind of thing only every other two years since I moved away from Munich, where our club is located. We even have a ranch (no horses though).

The costumes me (left) and my generale are wearing are
vintage of course. The weapons too (reworked, so they can't fire live ammo - this is not the US Smiley.
The machine gun is a Russian one from 1913.

Very cool, post more. The vintage costumes look great, tell us more too about the club sounds very interesting, how old is it, etc, .

And how are you guys fairing over there with the dearth of Westerns nowadays?

To post a link pick the globe image above the smileys and insert the link between the brackets.  Wink

I have to make some research Smiley
Guess our club (Colorado Boys Munich) was founded about 40 years ago. 'Generale Chuchillo Ramon Hernandez' aka as Helmut is one of my best friends and also one of the biggest collectors worldwide of Clint & Italian Westerns.
The gunbelt was a birthday present to me 10 years ago. He handmade it in the 70's with Eastwoods as blueprint.
The pic trail have a forum URL. I'll try it now Smiley

It's even older - 50 years next year.

]]http://www.colorado-boys-muenchen.de/http://

The website is just unfolding (only one pic in the album) as I see.

Anyway, The idea was and is to live like the guys and dolls did 100+ years ago. The Indians (we don't have any, thanks to god) take it veeery seriousely. I mean you then behave like them - not talking, straight face...
The mountain men are great but I prefer to watch Dan Haggerty (no smells on TV).
Cowboys are great of course (and the least in a historical way, after all, everbody wants to be a cowboy).
We Mexicans of course are a different brand. We try to understand to country and its people and history. Most of us have spent time there. I myself could never pretend to be a Mexican, thanks to the Italian Western (and history of course) I found my place as a halfbreed so to speak. The gringo who became a Mexican. Like if MERCENARIO would have stayed there and adapted over the years. Or, come to think of it, like Sam Peckinpah. Mexico is like Africa. The minute you're there, you either fall in love with it or you cry for your home.
I LOVE it.
That's me in Agua Verde. Actually it's the Hacienda Cienega Del Carmen near Parras. That's between Torreon and Saltillo. I shot a film about Peckinpah there. It was Villas location for some battles and it was Peckinpah's location for the WILD BUNCH. I found a lot of ammo!

Parts of the film are included on the MAJOR DUNDEE DVD (another film about gringos in Mexico).
The main DVD will be out next year. Right now it plays internationally on festivals (Only ATLANTA so far in the US)      www.eldorado-film.de

Where are you located?

  I thought your name sounded familiar, Mike!  I thought that part of your documentary on the MD dvd was great.  Found myself wishing I could see the whole thing.  Do you know when the main dvd will be officially released next year? I'm looking forward to it!
