    ok, I googled it:
    "Shacknasty Jim (c1851 - 1881) was a Modoc warrior and the leader of the Hot Creek band."
    I can't carry a tune in a bucket let alone be the leader of a band. You're way off.

    I just thought it was funny that it was the name of an actual person from a 140 years ago

    actually.... sounds like a pretty cool old cowboy.
    Thank you for the kind words?

    you should get some old weather barnwood and make one of those 1950's movie western signs and put it on a stake outside one of the cabins

    remember to pound the stake in at an angle

    Actually.... the ranch where I occasionally do ranch-hand work has a lot of these old signs from the turn of the century and they are rustic as hell, hand painted and everything. Each of the log cabins (dozen or more) has a name and retains their original name and sign... "Trapper's Cabin", "Overlook", "Parkview", "Cascade", "River View", etc.... I like things that way.

    I don't know if you're aware of it or not, but the Modoc Tribe fought the US cavalry for several years in the last of the Indian Wars. Their lands contain a huge number of lava tubes that they could hide in with near impunity and they nearly drove the Army insane for a while. Their leader was named Captain Jack

    the last?

    I thought the Modoc Wars ended in something like 1873 ... Custer matched his meat in 1876 and Geronimo put on his show well after that

    Monkey's right and I was wrong. I was under the impression that they took place considerably later. Mea Maximus Culpa
