hope you gotout and rode some since we last talked, i went riding yesterday to scout out a new route, driving along and come over a rise and there are a herd of elk about 15 yards away. i don't who was more startled. i had just let off the throttle as i came over the hill and was in stealth mode. they watched me, i watched them and i just coasted by them as they were munching along. great view, even though it was cold.

We went to Sliver City for a weekend had a good time. Hey been meaning to ask you when we rode north I think it was the first day. What rd. did we take that we droped down into the river bottom and rode across the river on that concrete road and the water was just below the road surface. Here's one for ya.

There are several places where that stream runs normally just barely below the concrete, but let it come a little rain, and brother now that's fun to ride across...It's been a day or two since because of all of the family problems this past year we have had to deal with, that the wife andI haven't made a run to the Hill Country....I still think that those statues and the model of theStonehenge IIat Hunt, Texas...It's just too cool out there in the middle of no where....

Wait!!!!!.....I had to look it up and just found out that this replica had been moved because of a "red harvesterant" invasion, plus the son of the man who built this replica sold the land...It is still under reconstruction and will be located in Ingram, Texas....

Its a shame that it has to be moved but I have pictures of it at its old location and will treasure them...Lets just hope its new home will display it like Al Shepard built it....Yeah lots of things to see and do there...

On a disk from my old computer I have those pictures, but...When my son was taking them off of that computer he found a very nasty virus that almost killed his computer...So until I figure out how to get those pictures onto this new computer without infecting it with that virus, I can't post the pictures I had from about 5 years ago...The back drop for those pictures is this limestone cliff where the Guadalupe River flows at the base...It was and is a beautiful place....

One thing we found out the hard way about is the "high water" crossings....You will see a sign it might say nothing about the dip except "high water crossing"....We hit one of those little jewels running about 75 mph, the wife and I both had to be picked up by the back up vehicle...We both hurt our backs....Next day we were able to cripple home...Just watch them suckers....

Alrighty... time to chime in here and say that all those pictures, or heads, mountains and river crossings look dangerous to me!

Gotta have OSHA approved ramps on 'dim 'dere hills. Get some hard hats and approved eye wear on those rock reads and need some guardrails or temporary barricades between you and that there river, son!

Randy, what were you thinking?


:shock:
