    I dont totally believe in reincarnation but I might have been ...

    If reincarnation is real I was Mike Fink. I have dreamed about this character since I was a child. I have memories of being on the riverbanis as Fink. I used to think it to be just silly but the more I read .. .

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Fink

    1770/1780 – c. 1823), called "king of the keelboaters", was a semi-legendary brawler and river boatman who exemplified the tough and hard-drinking men who ran keelboats up and down the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.

    Hell Cotton, I think you were Mike Fink. I come to that conclusion after reading his boast. It's like it is your work, LoL. That's awesome. I am not sure if I belive in reincarnation either. But who knows.
    We are all brothers and sisters in humanity. We are all made from the same dust of stars. We cannot be separated because all life is interconnected.

    Spooky ! When I first began having the Mike Fink dreams i didn't even know he roamed the MS River! I remembered walking up and down riverbanks scouting for expeditions but not the nearby MS River!

    What confuse me is in my dreams I was killed by an Indian on a tall horse. Legend says I was killed by a friend of a guy i shot in the head trying to shoot a mug of beer off his head during a drunken brawl over a woman. Then again as Mike Fink it probably took more than just one person to do me in !

    was indeed he who joined Ashley's Hundred, Fink died in the Rocky Mountains in 1823, during the course of Ashley's expedition. Some say it was a drunken argument over what he always called a chère amie—a romantic interest. Timothy Field, in 1829, said that in a drunken stupor, when aiming at a mug of beer from the head of his longtime friend, a companion named Carpenter,[9] he shot low; shortly thereafter, his other longtime friend, Talbot, retaliated by killing Fink, using Carpenter's pistol..

    I bet as Mike Fink it may have taken a dozen guys to bring me down ! Maybe 15-20!

    Or someone romanticized Fink's death and he was really killed by an Indian on a tall horse.
