Fort Bravo

Has anyone visited Fort Bravo, and was it worth it? Will be passing near-by in September and was wondering whether to call in.

Will It Buff Out?









The Suit:What would you consider to be your greatest weakness?

Me: Honesty.

The Suit: Honesty? I don't think honesty could be construed as a weakness.

Me: I don't give a f**k what you think.

I wonder if it’s the same place?
When I was a kid, Mum and Dad bought a bus. Dad put some bunk beds at the back and a camping stove/ sink in it, then off we went round Europe.
As a 7yr old, you don’t question these things and assume it’s normal to go travelling with 3 kids (my little bro was 2!)
One day we were driving across Spain and stumbled on a western town, an abandoned film set. It literally was a ghost town, complete with a saloon and a gallows in the middle with a noose dangling from it. Nearby we found a wooden “cavalry fort” partially burned down. As a kid I thought it was amazing which is probably why it’s one of my strongest memories of that trip.
( Hmm, sorry, waffling a bit there :oops: )

Sorry, it’s the old spaghetti western film set in southern Spain, just north of Almeria. Fist full of Dollars and all that.
