Hello from the Middle of Texas

Post  Fusillade on Wed 01 Jul 2009, 4:53 pm

Dang, y'all are still around? Very Happy

Glad to see that everyone is alive and kickin'. I'm in the middle of nowhere Texas working on radiation detection equipment and craving some pork barbecue (it's all beef brisket out here). It's so bad out here that for my birthday last year, we drove 150 miles just to eat at a Waffle House. Now that's desperate.

Anyway, just wanted to say hello and if any of y'all are planning to drive west on I-20 and think you will find yourself in the Abilene/Sweetwater Texas area around feeding time, let me know and I'll spring for the meal.

Later

You ever heard people say you can't drive across Texas in a day? That is because after 600+ miles of nothing, they finally take their own life with still another 200 miles to go.

Nothing

I drive 40 miles each way to work surrounded by this.....nothing (except tumbleweeds and windmills).

Please note how everything leans....the sign, the abandoned mailbox, the telephone pole. A light breeze out here is 25MPH. Average rainfall is less than 20" yet when it does rain, it usually rains about 3" in 4 hours or so. I'll post pictures during our next flood.

How's it going Cave?

I'm in Texas until I get divorced or the wife passes away ...which ever comes first. At least on the positive side, I'm currently in the market for another Beetle (I sold all my cars before I moved to Texas). I've been thinking about coming out to Georgia to get Overspray's '66 he has up for sale if just an excuse to get back to Georgia to see friends and family (and eat some BBQ Very Happy ).

Hey Fuss, look up James Dotson, in Abilene... he used to run VGA, aka Vintage German Auto, in Abilene, but closed down a few years back due to declining customer base in the area. he is on the Cal-Look forum quite a bit, and goes by the name "VGAJames"... he still has some cars and parts, IIRC. I don't think he can help with the barbecue, though.
