Will and his wife met me first at at the casino by the water, and then again ...



...and then again at the tamale place. Will's retired Navy, part-time cowpunch, part time engineer who's restoring a /2 bike, and his wife does QA at a hospital. Their daughter lives in Duluth, GA- neat people.

Nacodoces, MS

Ben's showing me Austin from on top of Mt. Bonnell. Here's he's showing me UT, and I'm ignoring him so I can share this with you. See how nice I am?

What, Ben? What were you saying? Sorry. Can we find a Starbucks now??

The turnoff to Marfa and Alpine, TX, off of I-10.



Left early in the morning, so I haven't got photos from the windfarm or anything- use your imagination.

I stayed at Chris King's place for a couple of evenings. That's his bassett, Doodle




Chris is a neat guy. A retired welder for the Florida utilities, he restores old motorsikkles and makes /6 desert bikes.

Between Marfa and Van Horn, there's this Prada Box out in the middle of nowhere.




Used to have Prada stuff displayed, now it's a stopover for travelers who leave their artsy little cards behind.


**just saw another post that there's now product back in the Prada display. Enjoy!
