Fighting was out of the question: we urged our feeble animals up the gulch as far as there was footing for a hoof, then threw ourselves out of our saddles and took to the chaparral on one of the slopes, abandoning our entire outfit
to the enemy.
The fall of 1897 found them at Dyea, but without the money to carry an outfit across Chilcoot Pass and float it down to Dawson.
In that Edith Nelson undertook to cook for the outfit, a man's share was to be her portion.
Such the beach old John Tarwater stepped upon; and straight across the beach and up the trail toward Chilcoot he headed, cackling his ancient chant, a very Grandfather Argus himself, with no outfit worry in the world, for he did not possess any outfit.
Immediately the meal was wolfed down the three partners took their empty pack-straps and headed down trail to where the remainder of their outfit lay at the last camp a mile away.
So, when the boat's built, he's the boss of the outfit to navigate the lakes and rapids to Klondike.
Very lucky to get such a bunch of specialities into one outfit.
Half the time is wasted over the cooking by one of you that he might be puttin' in packin' outfit.
Hal and his sister and brother-in-law listened unwillingly, pitched tent, and overhauled the outfit.
This accomplished, the outfit, though cut in half, was still a formidable bulk.
His sister and brother-in-law seconded him; but they were frustrated by their heavy outfit and their own incompetence.
Do you happen to know whether she has had a new outfit of linen lately?
Seeing no possible injury to Rosanna if I owned the truth, I answered that the girl had come to us rather sparely provided with linen, and that my lady, in recompense for her good conduct (I laid a stress on her good conduct), had given her a new outfit not a fortnight since.
But for that outfit, we should have discovered a new nightgown or petticoat among Rosanna's things, and have nailed her in that way.
The remainder of that day and the whole of the next were a busy time for the Nubbles family, to whom everything connected with Kit's outfit
and departure was matter of as great moment as if he had been about to penetrate into the interior of Africa, or to take a cruise round the world.
