Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run

Sorry Guys, having some issues here. Had my browser crash so uploading the pics that didn't make it and the 9key site is having some trouble with a few of the markers. I'll finish up what I have and try the others tomorrow sometime.

My 80 year old clock works just fine. I think the techies just reset the 2000 crash to reset in 2009. But with the Hist. markers game I like it a little better than the FM game and it can actuliy complement both games. After reading some of my local marker facts I learned a little about the area I live in. And plan to do some local riding to explore some more. pics. to come soon. I can not wait to try some cold weather gear I resently purchased, at least when it gets cold. A friend sent me this today!!!!!


My first bike was a Suzuki, as well was my Dirt Bike, good stuff.

My XS1100 is currently hibernating(-12 actual outside).

Where you working these days?.

nah, it was just a glitch with the photobucket site. I rebooted and it's all good. the difficulty with the 9key site was it was looking at a different name for the site and having issues. Go figure with that much data. But I was able to wrangle around it and get the last couple.

Look forward to your contributions.

This will get some cross posting from the ghost towns section too. Great idea!

Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run

Got a new one today, & had a great lunch while I was at it...






From here:





The old tunnel, which is now a bat cave :




And lunch:




The Alamo Springs Cafe. If you haven't been there, it's a very nice ride to get there & a great burger once you arrive. They were voted best burger in Texas by somebody, at some point in the past.

Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run

Picked these up today while riding through my home town:








It's a pretty impressive courthouse which will soon be undergoing renovations.

Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run

Why has it taken me half a year to see this thread?

I'm in. I got a few photos, some with the bike in the pic.

I'll have to wait until I get back to Texas before I can post....still packing for the trip home.

Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run

So we can post any historical markers we have? Are we keeping track of how many there are and how many are posted?

I believe Mavrick said he'd take control of the administration of this thread. As for ones we had, I just went through my archives and pulled them to a single folder.

Re: Challenge 2009 and beyond - Historical Marker Run



Marker 5465002556
Hood's Devil's River Fight - The men of Company G, a small unit of the U. S. 2nd cavalry, left Fort Mason on July 5, 1857, under the command of Lt. John Bell Hood (1831-1879), in pursuit of Comanche Indians in the vicinity. Traveling northwest, they discovered a fresh Indian trail leading southward toward Mexico. Crossing bluffs near the Devil's River on July 20, the men encountered an Indian camp on a ridge about two miles from the steam, marked by a white flag. Suspecting an ambush, Hood proceeded cautiously toward the ridge. A small band of Indians advanced to meet Hood's party. Then, throwing down the flag to signal their concealed allies, the Indians attacked. Outnumbered, and hampered by brush fires set by Indian women, the soldiers were forced into fierce hand-to-hand combat. They heard the loud cries of Comanche women through the smoke and dust, indicating an Indian retreat. Two cavalrymen, William Barry and Thomas Ryan, were killed, and five others, including Hood, were wounded. Later reports revealed that nineteen Indians were killed, and many more wounded. Hood and his men were later cited for valor in army reports. 1987)
