Howdy from Terlingua

I'm sort of a returning rider. Ran rice rockets on the street in the 70s, 80s then turned to other things. Started running rivers in the West and Mexico, seriously dove into guns, fishing, boats, etc.; big boys toys. Just got back into riding this year with a Yamaha XT250 and recently upgraded to an 08 KLR. Some dirt but mostly on the pavement just to get comfortable riding again.

I moved to the Terlingua in '84 when it was really unpopulated and settled in. Over the years my wife and I have acquired some acreage and built a decent house. If I've got this image posting down, here's a pic of the back yard.

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
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

I'm nearly a neighbor. Part-time Alpine resident....

Welcome aboard. Stay tuned for a few Big Bend group rides, over Christmas then again in March.

Perhaps we need to arrange a Trans-Pecos TWT meetup....
