That´s right! And those wild and crazy Alamaniacs...
Yeah, in retrospect, I wish I'd gone up that ladder back when I had the opportunity to do so. By 1980, both platform and ladder were history. To this day, Rich Curilla maintains that he does not know where the platform rests. Says it may be in the "boneyard". For those of you who have been there, the "boneyard" is on top of Parson Hill, directly behing the Waynamo set. A lot of old film wreckage is there, from various productions.

While i talked to Rich on many occasions during my many visits to Alamo village (he wore a beard), we where just turistas to him so he never bothered to give me a "special" tour of the village, although he let my family go thru the gate free of charge many times when he manned the ticket booth at the main gate.

The buildings from John Ford's TWO RODE TOGETHER sure do block the view of the hotel and Cantina, don't they?
Someone asked in an earlier post whether new Alamo Village owner David Jones would tear down these buildings. I replied, probably not. They are a part of Alamo Village History themselves. And, like the real San Antonio itself, this San Antonio has grown over the years.
Ae you going to be able to make it to San Antonio this March, Hans? A side trip to Brackettville will definately be in the plans.
I don´t know for sure. I hope so. I´m working on it. What it boils down to - as always - is money. I don´t know if I´ll be able to get the money together. That´s the problem. If I can manage it Brackettville will of course be a must. To travel all the way to Texas and not see Alamo Village would be really be a let down. A trip to Seguin and Goliad would also be nice...
