Weird Wild West
The ferry crossing lies just south of Long Fork, in fact you can see the town from the river atop a rise almost a mile away.
The ferryman’s lodge sits on the town-side edge, a delapidated two-room shotgun shack strewn with debris. Clearly the ferryman isn’t one to keep a tidy house.
In fact Filthy Lee the ferryman is a drunkard and degenerate. He has gone slightly mad from the half-heard voices that he hears carried on the wind down the river from the high country. It he was more sane then perhaps many local mysteries might be resolved, as it is when he is not screaming at the uncaring sky he runs the rope ferry where he charges a dollar a head, which includes horses too.
