DOD inspired FM143 ride

I was reading DOD's report...

When someone mentioned FM143.

I was curious so I headed to Patigonia to find this road 143

Before long here it is

Here it is again, I must still be on the correct road.

One of these days I'll return to see what this is all about. Too bad the truck was blocking my view and I am much too impatient to wait around.

I was very happy to see this sign. Now I knew how far forward to pavement and decided that even though I didn't leave the house until 11:30, I could easily return to civilization in plenty of time.

Nice day for a ride. :-)

Wow, we really did miss out. Next time! There is a lot of beautiful country down there.

Nobody has ever used the words "dod" and "inspired" in the same sentence before.
