This is a really fun day ride from Georgetown, Tx. The problem is I’m not sure what to call it. “Hill and Dell”, “East meets West”, “Farms and Ranches”? The one thing that I am sure of is, it’s Balcones Fault! In a nutshell, the Central Texas Hill Country, also known as the Balcones Canyonlands, was formed due to faulting millions of years ago when the Texas Coastal Plains bent downward while the more stable central Texas interior of the LLano Uplift remained relatively stable. After all these years the softer sediments in the hill country area Continue reading
I’ve been interested in hosting my own blog for sometime now. I renewed my hosting account with godaddy and they make it very easy to create your own wordpress blog site. So here it is! What do you think? It’s a work in progress and I will begin posting my blogs here. I’m going to add a page for gun enthusiasts and a photo page as well. Those are just a few of my ideas, so check back often or add yourself to my RSS feed so you get a notification when the site gets updated. That’s it for now!
Keep the shiny side up,
When we left the Catfish Parlour everything was right with the world. We had attended a great Sunday service at the ORBC, we had plied ourselves with fried catfish and hush-puppies. It was a balmy 55 degrees, light wind, sunshine, and a beautiful blue sky. Today’s ride included fellow ORBC members, Butch and Karen on their black Ultra Classic, Mark and his son on their Sporty 1200, Jeff and Teresa on the King, Eric on his Street Glide and Michelle on Miss Bling, Kenny and his daughter on his black Street Glide, Doug on his Ducati and Phyllis, Ruby, and I. Little did we know it would go into the tank in less than an hour. Continue reading
Weather is looking good for this weekend! Two good days of riding coming up. Where should we go?
I didn’t drive the car this weekend. Mainly cause the newspaper article came out and I figured if anyone saw me in Big Red, then I’d have to explain that I’m not a “real” biker, whatever that means. I thought it was pretty cool that the Williamson County Sun ran the story. I didn’t want it to be all about me, but it was. Truth is, 90% of the time we are on the bike, our great friends Jeff and Teresa are right there with us and 99% of the time Phyllis is on the pillion. But I’m the only blogger of the three, so I guess that’s why the article was focused on me. So I will endeavor to earn your consideration as I go forward. Thanks for looking!
Saturday 1/30/2010 we left the house around 11:45 in the morning. My riding companions were Eric, Michelle, and Phyllis. Eric and Michelle ride their own bikes, Phyllis was with me. My low fuel light came on Continue reading
