The Southern Extension Episode Five

 In this episode of The Southern Extension, Chain of Events - Part Two, I tell the conclusion of how fate and bad decisions put me in the path of a boy named Rowe that would eventually try to kill me.


This story is from 1984 and is the true story of how I met the character named Rowe and the events that precipitated Blackout Log from Dweller On The Boundary. Possibly without any one of these events happening then I might never have met three boys in the woods.


Photo by me.


This photo was taken at the end of my driveway looking in the direction of New Hope in the 1980s. Rowe and I walked in the ditch on the left side of the photo. The location of Blackout Log was in the woods on the left side of the photo too. The approximate distance from the road was about fifty yards.


This episode begins at the end of my driveway where part one left off. It completes the context as to what was happening in my eleven year old life and the foundation for Blackout Log.

I am not discussing what happened at Blackout Log, I wrote about it once in Dweller On The Boundary and will not elaborate.  This is how I came to be there.



If this episode had a song that related to it then it would be Welcome To The Jungle by Guns N'Roses.
