We were there in July(rally month) and the heat was there alright(over 100), but storm came along while there and temp. dropped big time to 80's. We enjoyed the area and more Beemerphiles should get this one done...If one remembers this particular year, the Texas Hill Country was nearly flooded out. The grasses were very green in West Texas, too and this ride to the "Big Bend" country was spectacular ride. Thanx again for the pics and memories. Randy moa13233. PS;my daughter was about 14 years old that year and won't forget the memories either, I'm sure.
    Amazing country! Saturday night - our first night in the adobe - we had thunderstorms and then a huge rainbow - ending at our neighbor's TEXAS flag. What a welcome!

    What a great winter report. Gives me a goal for retirement, when that day comes, many years from now. Yes, I'm a tad jealous

    Here's another web forum for you to check out if you haven't already: www.twtex.com
    Thanks!!


    I'm blown away by the fun of retirement. Sure glad I did it early. Sure don't miss work. Well, maybe some of the kids, but not the work.

    Thanks for the forum. I will check it out. When I get caught up again . . .

    What a great place for Ham Radio antennas. I know what I would do with that windmill tower. Build a couple more, taller.
    I kept thinking you would find Burt Monroe's cot inside the shed.
    Good luck on your winter quarters.
    It is even more amazing than I'd remembered. LOTS of work to do but fun too!

    Love the windmill. Not into ham radio. Yet.

    The only radio station we get is the brand new Marfa Public Radio. Sweet.

    Burt would sure be welcome here. And the road out front would be great for time trials . . .
