    Went to go see my dad. It is only a 30 minute ride from my place to his but it is nice riding. In my case it took about an hour because I stopped along the way for pictures.

    Hi Kb. Awesome pics! Thanks! That's great to be able to see views like that in such a short ride. Wish there were views like that around Houston!
    Be safe,

    The actual road I live on is only wide enough for one vehicle. If two vehicles meet, one may have to back up a quarter mile to find a driveway or farm gate to get out of the way to let the other vehicle pass by. It is really fun when two trucks meet on a steep hill and they're both pulling a trailer with livestock or hay. A fence is on each side of the road the whole way because farmers all put their the fences right on the edge of the road. So we don't get a lot of traffic being that people don't want to risk meeting a vehicle lol.

    BTW, if it makes you feel any better y'all have something in Houston that we don't. Money... there isn't much to be found out here. It's quite a trade off living in the sticks. :-)

    Well, it may be true about the money thing, but, it isn't spread around evenly, that's for sure. And even then none of what's here is a sure thing, except maybe in the medical stuff, which I'm not in. Somebody once said even though the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, we got the same dirt under the grass. Haha. Oh well, that's why I look at all the great places everyone has to ride in here on ADV.

    And the good thing about your road is I bet you don't have a lot of traffic either! Before I lived here, lived in a small town on the edge of a National Forest, a couple of hours north of Houston. Wished I had ridden bikes then, but had quit for a while. We did trail ride, just in jeeps and trucks. There's a lot to be said for for being away from the city, and I never did want to be there, but there just weren't enough decent jobs in the smaller town. But enough of me cluttering up your RR.
    Thanks again for the great pics.

    Good rides/photos. Thanks for sharing. I also live on one of those roads that are very narrow. Straight down on one side and straight up on the other.
    Fun seeing people come here the first time and meet another vehicle.

    I am a little shocked at the complete lack of litter along the roads. Nice pics !

    That's a nice little Virago. Perfect for slow cruising.
