The kids and grandkids left early this morning. Headed back to Dallas. We also had a mild cool front move thru last night that got the low into the upper 60's and a high today just over 90º. I took full advantage by going for a ride. Here's what I saw.
A dam holding back almost no water.
A VERY purple boxcar
A large wind farm. Yeah I know, kinda weak portrayal. This is the west end of a 20 mile by 5 mile wind farm. All on private land with very limited access. I rode 5 miles of gravel to get this one.
That's it. No omfg moments. Life is very good.
Oh yeah, there was this 1 moment heading up to Fritch. I passed a DPS trooper going south on 136 while I was traveling north at somewhere around 90 mph. I'm pretty sure the speed limit is either 70 or 75 mph. When I realized who I was facing I let off a little and applied just enough rear brake to get me down to 80.
Early morning, almost no traffic for 40 miles, all geared up or radar wasn't on. Could've been a combination of all those and more. He saluted me and I returned the favor. IMHO the Texas DPS is the best.
