Time To Head Out

Will be heading out to Terlingua tomorrow and I can't wait. The Shelby Mustangs will be down there starting Thursday.

                               We will do some 4-wheeling while we are down there.

Then on Saturday night we will be in Ft. Davis for this, 
Over 40 living history re-enactors will perform compelling vignettes to take you back in time to the 1800s when the U.S. Army occupied Fort Davis. Meet the spunky officer’s servant, Mrs. Murphy, bantering humorously as she serves warm cider and cookies to guests. Watch a delirious sergeant on sick call at the post hospital chiding the capable post surgeon. Encounter officers and some gossipy officers’ wives of the 10th Cavalry in 1885 discussing the regiment’s upcoming move to Arizona.
Tour times are staggered every half hour. The first guided tour begins at 6 p.m. and the last begins at 8:30 p.m. This unique once-a-year event allows the public to see the Fort after hours and by lantern light. You’ll see living history characters from the past in scenes based on actual historical events at the fort. A special side attraction is to view new exhibits in the 1876 hospital.

                        I went and bought 100 LBS of corn for my 4 legged friends out there .

I will get my new solar panels hooked up with my new battery's, so it will be a busy trip but well worth it. 

I did get to spend $1300.00 on the rear end of my truck the other day, that made me real mad at ford. How in the hell can you put clutches in the rear end and just let the clutch material fall into the grease as it wears out. From reading other peoples stories on this they get about 35,000 miles between clutch jobs on the rear end. I waited till I had 90,000 on mine and had to have all the bearings replaced as well as the clutches. If you plan on buying a used Ford truck around a 2003 model stay away from it unless you like spending money on replacing clutches. I've really been happy with it except for the damn rear end on it. The clutches give it positrack when it needs it, just in case you think I lost my mind talking about a clutch in a rear end.

    1. Cause they are hungry.:)
      I'm really trying to get deer coming up but the Havalina likes to hang around as well as Quail. there is always something back there eating the corn. One havalina for some reason likes me and will hang around me all the time. I can be swinging a pick and he will just lay about 10 feet from me and watch.
      Thanks,for coming by.

  2. Looks to me like you have a fan club!

    Sure is a lot of bar-b-que walking around there!

    1. Hermit I here that havalina are real greasy eating and you need to know what you are doing when you dress one out. I like the quail that hang around out there for eating.

  3. Jim, sounds like a fun time out there! Looks like that might be the Christmas Mtn train behind bare bones?

    The Ft. Davis reenactment sounds very interesting too...hope you make it there safe, you know what they say about FORD's? :)

    Take a lot of pictures for us and I hope you're starting to feel better.


  4. Brad,that picture was taken up on the Christmas Mountains.
    Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Wow, and you even have a pet havalina!!

    1. Dizzy, that dang havalina beats all I ever saw, everybody out there that has seen it can't believe it.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  6. Good times. I was about to delay my trip down this weekend because of the roads but apparently they aren't too bad after all? I guess things dry up quick when the rain stops.

    Those javelina are nasty critters. Basically giant rats - not like a pig at all. Do people actually eat them? Yuck.
