    HAHAHA!!!! :rofl Nice!
    I am going on my 1st scouting mission Sat or Sun. Probably Sat. I have 2 main points that I will hit. One is right outside the Lake Bwd called Thrifty. There is a small little camping area and river with some decent crappie fishing. (at least it was when I lived near by but that's been 10 years ago). It's just a few miles from the the lake. I have been wanting to get out to the lake and check it out. We have been in such a fierce drought lately that I have had this idea that we could take our motorcycles and go riding through the dry parts of the lake. At this point it's just an idea as I have not see the lake from any vantage point other than the bridge on Hwy 279.
    The 2nd spot is closer to Goldthwaite, Tx. There are TONS of gravel roads along this area. Many of them lead to the famous (somewhat famous) Regency Bridge......One of the oldest suspension bridges in Texas. It's pretty cool.

    I will need this weekend to do all the riding and get some kind of idea of what's out there. This will just be the 1st recon mission.......LOT's of ROADS in that area. :lol3

    Yeah. Do it! We got the Regency Bridge on the map. If you could, concentrate on the dirt roads west of there. I sent you my digits for some routing help.

    Fairing moved higher. Surprisingly enough I found rubber compression nuts at the local hardware store so I just installed a second set of four in the headlight surround and now there are two positions to choose from. It's about 2 1/2" higher than before and wind is hitting my just under the collarbone.


    EDIT: Rocky Mountain ATV has Tusk grip heaters and "oven" mitts on sale for $9.99 and $7.99 respectively.

    Wow. I bet you can hardly tell it's winter behind that thing. Well, at least until the ride to work next Tuesday morning.

    Well, looks like rain is out here. Too far north. May be heading up to LC. Looks like they are getting a little sprinkle up there but not enough to slow anything down. Damn its sad out here on the ranch.

    Edit: Looks like no-name nephew2 and Josh want to get out for a bit. The big Katooms will be rumbling.

    Yesterday there was one Goose and 30 Hogs hanging out there. One choose to follow the Goose thru 51 back to Granbury to Saddlebags BBQ. He caught up after we crossed 56.:D

    Had a good ride today with those beastly Katooms.

    It was sure nice not to have to worry about getting a ticket. I had immunity. My license plate ran out last month and my DL expired on my birthday. In August. See? They couldn't have given me a ticket. I was off the grid and in-fucking-visible.

    Well, I've got to run, to keep from hiding .......

    Ha Ha Ha and I got a cake recipe you could may be get through.:evil

    Once again this year, I’ve had requests for my Vodka Christmas Cake recipe so here goes. Please keep in your files as I am beginning to get tired of typing this up every year! (Made mine this morning!!!!) 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 cup water, 1 tsp. salt , 1 cup brown sugar, Lemon juice, 4 large eggs, Nuts, 1
    ...bottle Vodka,
    2 cups dried fruit.
    Sample a cup of Vodka to check quality.
    Take a large bowl, check the Vodka again to be sure it is of the highest quality then Repeat. Turn on the electric mixer. Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of sugar. Beat again. At this point, it is best to make sure the Vodka is still OK. Try another cup just in case. Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 eegs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the fruit up off the floor, wash it and put it in the bowl a piece at a time trying to count it. Mix on the turner. If the fried druit getas stuck in the beaterers, just pry it loose with a drewscriver Sample the Vodka to test for tonsisticity. Next, sift 2 cups of salt, or something. Check the Vodka. Now shit shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find. Greash the oven. Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window. Finish the Vodka and wipe the counter with the cat.
