Have Camel, Will Travel
20 February 2007 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Palladin takes on a survival contest in the Mohave desert that no man has ever won before. To give himself an edge, he brings along a surplus army camel and when he discovers local businessman Billy Jo Kane (Lawrence Dobkin) owns the town's water rights, and is selling water at $1 a gallon, he makes that part of the bet against his $5,000.

Boone is at times funny and cold blooded in this episode. Palladin senses the greed and blind stubbornness in Kane and pushes him to make a bet that he'd probably be better off not making. The episode is helped by the appearance of Claude Akins as one of Kane's henchmen (Akins would later co-star with Boone in a 1973 episode of "Hec Ramsey") and Mayberry's favorite drunk, Hal Smith (he played Otis) as the proprietor of a restaurant that gets the locals together to hire Palladin.
