Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

Here are some shots from my ride this past Saturday afternoon. Most of these were taken in the area North of Hwy 105 between the Brazos River and Independence. Some of the early ones were taken on FM 3090 outside of Navasota.

FM 3090

The Navasota and Brazos rivers were HIGH, out of their banks in places. That last big storm that came through dumped a LOT of rain!

In the area North of William Penn Road off Hwy 105 West of Navasota

Even with earplugs in and helmet on, the buzzing from all the bees was LOUD!

Most of these roads used to be gravel. They were only recently "paved" with a hard gravel top. They are lane and a half wide roads with a heavy crown to them. Great back roads for a mellow cruise and explore.

LOVE trees like this. The urge to build an incredible tree house is almost overwhelming!!

Found these guys just NE of Independence. Most of them got up and moved off a bit. This guy was NOT intimidated!

Is it me, or does it look like he's laughing at me?

Stopped at the little general store in Independence for an ice cream and a drink. Enjoyed a nice break on their back deck and a visit with some other riders.

Not sure what kind of tree this is, but it smells SWEET!!

I ran back down FM 390 to the start of William Penn and then ran that across to Hwy 105. Right before 105 there were a LOT of blue bonnets in the pastures.

Just outside of Navasota, I cut South of Hwy 90 on a bunch of dirt roads that eventually drops out onto FM 1486 South of Richards. Again, TONS of blue bonnets in the pastures and no traffic to speak of.

Just East of Richards on FM 149, I cut back into the woods and picked up some forest roads that run out near Outlaw Trax and eventually drop out onto FM 1791. From there it was a quick run home.

Had a great ride. Perfect temps. Little wind. Got home in time to help Daniel and Sarah do their first rides without training wheels on their dirt bike. Great day!

Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas
