Lost Western

grandad_rufus

All I can remember is that at one point the main character was returning to visit his parents, and had a run in with bushwackers, he killed them and burried the loot they had. He got his father to help him dig it up when they headed past later. Father made a comment about selling the farm, even though he never owned the land in the first place (May be two different stories)

Anyone help with this one ?

I can think of a story where the father sold the farm even though the land did not belong to him, that is a minor sub-plot of https://storiesonline.net/s/44905/wagons-ho (Lazlong).
No idea about the first half of your question.

I will re-read that next, as I ah pretty certain the bushwacker incident is just prior to the main family leaving

Thanks G_R

Then it is a different story.

Could it be Lucky Jim?

could be run away by Dual Writer. It has the hiding and later digging up the gold part.

That was the answer to someone else's question a couple of days ago, I'm starting to get suspicious!

I think it is, and I was getting confused with the Lucky Jim scene with the wagons with the gold Copper & Lead.

Funny thing is, I only recently finished re reading Recluse & Ghost and the Florida Friends stories.

Thanks guys G_R

I think the original poster may have two or even three stories mixed up.

Run Away has the buried gold part but no selling the farm or bushwhackers when leaving.

Wagons Ho has a part about not owning the ranch, none of the rest matches.

Woodmanone's The trail west has an altercation with bushwhackers which sends the MC (josh) west. However there is no gold and the family never moves from the farm (although they do go west for a visit).

All three are very good stories.

I there is a single story out there with all three elements let me know I would be interested in reading it.

I have read so many good Westerns here, they all start to merge - River Pirates is another of my favourites

With some of the writer/storytellers we have here. It has to be very easy to mix up their stories at times. We are just lucky to have their stories available to us as readers.

This also happened in "Escape from Lexington" by FantasyLover.

That is what I love most about SOL and its sister/daughter sites. There are themes and plots for everyone to enjoy. A huge variety so almost everyone can find something to read that will suit their taste in reading materials.

OK, I am relatively new to SOL. What sister/daughter sites?


on the SoL Home page, left hand column, right near the bottom are links to Fine Stories and SciFi Stories:

https://finestories.com

https://scifistories.com

Many SoL authors also post stories on those sites as well. Some will post stories on only one site while some will post on all of the sites they qualify for. By also using those sites you can boost your free story access numbers simply by reading the ones that fit each site that are on that site.

edit to add: Lazeez has the system set up so once you open an account on one of the sister sites you can use the same log on ID and password for them all.

Major difference is both sites are family oriented so some stories are suitable for children of different ages.

Maybe that was not such a good idea. It might have been better to have separate logins for SOL and FS/SFS so with a "family" login you don't have automatic access to adult content on SOL.

@Keet

FS and SFS have links to each other, but not to SOL.
I don't know if logins can be set up to exclude SOL though.

True, I didn't think about that.

I would be surprised if the kids didn't already know their parents login information including their passwords. That is assuming they use separate computers. If they use the same computer, they can probably access any sites their parents use.

Thanks to all who replied. I did give a quick glance at both sites. I didn't see, at least not in that glance, any that were erotic. I apologize if I wasn't clear on that. I thought mentioning those other adult sites, and their various shortcomings, would have said that. Looking back at my post though, I see that I in fact did not make it clear. So again, sorry.

I was actually looking for something adult in nature, but without the faults I mentioned about those other sites. I have found SOL to offer the best quality of stories. Sure there are stroke stories here, and even some poorly written ones, but it is so much easier, not to mention more likely, to find high grade erotica here. So far SOL is the only site I have found that fits the bill.

Lastly let me correct myself and give credit to Lazeez. I had mixed up him and Lazlo in my other post. While Lazlo is a good writer, someone who has done such as bang up job as Lazeez as done here, deserves their own kudos and not to be confused with another, even though the other person may be top notch themselves. So thanks for the site Lazeez. And if anyone reading this knows of any sites approaching SOL's quality, I hope you will please take the time to let me know.

The user accounts are for each person, not a family. Since the basic account is free there's no reason why each member of the family can't have their own log on ID.

However, the system is simple and I know that once I create a SoL account and prove entitlement to it I can use the same log on ID and password at the other sites. However, you have to prove age to have a SoL ID and log on while you don't have to prove age for a FS ID and log on, but having a FS log on doesn't automatically give you a SoL log on.

What the system does do is once you create an account on SoL and then create accounts on the others you can sync them so if you change your SoL password the change works for the others as well, and the system also allows you to use the same log on ID for all of the sites you're approved access to.

edit to add: SciFi allows erotica, but FS doesn't allow erotica, nudity, or swear words.

Also, you log on to each site independently when you visit them. The advantages of being a member to all of the sites is there are some people who post stories on only one of the sites, and some people who post stories on all of the sites. Thus there are some stories on FS that aren't on SoL etc. The big advantage with the free accounts is when you hit your daily limit on SoL you can log into FS and read stories there until you hit that site's daily limit, thus doubling the daily limit.

Ah, yes of course. It was just something that sprang up in my mind after the question about the sister sites.
I didn't know the specifics about the back-and-front between the sites but that seems very well done.
I like both sister sites and they are a help for free members. I read double posted stories from the sister sites so they don't count on my SOL profile ;)

I don't have to log in separately. If I'm logged in to SOL the login is automatic to the sister sites.
