You guys? You guys? Whazzamatta U?
Half the point of a tag game is to get other riders to go somewhere they've never been or somewhere they remember, bag the tag, and then carry the tag to one of thier own riding destinations! If riders in south Texas want the tag in the southland, someone needs to ride north. Or some north Texan might have a reason to get it part of the way ...

Anyone got any ideas, who is going to get this moving?

Alright guys and girls of Texas. I started thinking of doing one of my favorite locations and while doing research, I stumbled across this interesting fact. Now, I lived in this town for 10 years and never even heard of this story.

Along the shores of the creek that bears one of the this towns many names. Vessels quietly slipped into the briny stream to battle the tyranny of North.

Some of the warships were: Royal Yacht, Henrietta, Marguereta, Bagdad, Altha Brooks and The Phobe.

Here is a drawing of what historians think the area might have looked like:









Here are some photo's from the area in the '20's:

Thank You!

I've done 700ish miles in 18 hours on the Harley before. It does pretty good. It's really my fault for having such a beat up body.

As much as I though it was going to suck, I was really surprised coming up on 144 between Meridian and Glen Rose. Very nice country. Going back was rough, but I did it and I am glad.

Do you have anything on the History of Brock or did you just pick it for my agony?

Sorry.

Folks still won't know where it is.

And they weren't sailing up there to fight against tyranny, they were trying to make a buck.

I know it's kind of hard to find, but it is findable.

I'll be dammed if I was going pose down by the Battleship Texas.
