    10,641 miles in 3.5 minutes...

    I can now say "I've been everywhere, man". In Texas that is....

    I was fortunate enough to participate in a group effort with Two Wheeled Texans to do a photo shoot across the great state of Texas. Having submitted a large portion of the pictures, I figured I might as well just finish the project solo and visit them all.

    So, all 92 cities, towns, communities and dried up places were visited and a photo taken to record the moment. The photos were then set to Brian Burns version of the great song done originally by Hank Snow then made famous by Johnny Cash.

    The project covered 10,641 miles and included 24 distinct riding days. My longest single day for the project was 1,073 miles. Along the way I discovered some interesting facts such as Round Lake was formally known as Clabberville and ceased to exist the turn of the century. And places like Val Verde and Mill Creek are communities, not fully recognized towns with city limit signs.

    Youtube seems to really cutdown on the quality and the refresh rate is tough for .5 second frames. As popeye says, "it is what it is".

    Hope you enjoy the ride......

    What fun! Really well done. Thanx for the delightful film. Gotta watch that one again.

    They've only got a one thumbs-up gesture in the icons list, but I give it two!
