When I came across this picture on the web a while back I was fairly certain I recognized it. I believed and still believe it’s the truck belonging to the man and wife wood cutter couple murdered in Catron County, New Mexico while I was working Fox Mountain. An incident I described in loving detail in the Adams Diggings book. They were found several months later, a bear having dug them up where they were folded yinyang style into a 4′x4′x4′ grave in an ancient ruin site.
Damn I love that truck. Nothing sissie at all there. A guy could drive that thing around just about anywhere he might wish to go. It’s been pre-disastered so the odds of anything bad happening in it would be nil.
