    Nike Hercules Missile on Saint Augustin Pass between Las Cruces and White Sands New Mexico

    I used to work on this missile (nuclear version) in Europe in the 80's

    Last picture is the same missile with my son and my hippie van around 1989

    Took a spin out to see the Old Girl yesterday. They are going to move her to another location where she can get some much needed TLC. For those that don't know she's been sitting in the same place for over 70 years, right next to where Texas won it's Independence at The Battle of San Jacinto.

    You got it. Awesome sight, if a bit windy with two choppers lifting off!

    Same place but up the hill. Met a small convoy on the way.

    Edit: TW!

    Are there many trails to explore in the area?

    I've always been blown away just by the road. Can't imagine the beauty in the wild in that area.

    Yup, TW's...and a DT200. It's all FS roads but take you to some beautiful areas. If I recall, all the roads seem to be out and back. We tried to find a single track but it was on the other side of a meadow and time was short. Our ride leader went back a few weeks later only to find out it was a non-motorized trail so we would have had to retrace our tracks no matter what.

    Passing the convoy was pretty neat.

    Hopefully, this doesn't break the rules:

    It just doesn't seem right that the old lady is no longer at San Jacinto, but nor was it right to let her go to pot after the dry dock refurbishment about 25 - 30 years ago.

    The Houffalize Panther has been away for a while now. The Houffalize commune contracted with the Belgian Army, their vehicle restoration centre in Bastogne has been managing the project for the 75 battle of the bulge celebrations. However the sub-contractor in Germany who is doing the running gear has had huge issues removing rusted suspension components, the last ones only gave way when the used a 450 ton press!

    Here it is as of last month.
