Did a day ride Monday to Camp Herne. A WW2 German prison camp. It was closed so we couldn't go in. Need to see when it is open for tours.
I went there a couple years ago with the Centex CAF wing from San Marcos, in the B-25 Yellow Rose. The camp is very cool, and the small museum is well done and surprising. This camp was for German brass, and there are many tales of generals and such that were certain they would be tortured and killed, only to be treated very well, and completely change their view of America. Many stayed, and all others returned to tell the poor brainwashed masses how well we treat POW's.
We were there when a re-enactment group was. That's worth finding out about and seeing.

Rode to Taylor HEB and back home. $45 bucks of groceries in tail bag. They have Pecos Cantaloupe and I love them. They are so sweet. 1.99 each. Ended up about 60 miles home by 10:30. Too much top weight so going home was not as much lean on the turns. Oh and a curbside breakfast of beagle and BeanieWeanies.

Went for a few good laps on my home track this morning. As I’m zipping along I pass a new hole/burrow that wasn’t there last ride. Curiosity gets me and I stop to look on the next lap.

Notice I park right next to it. So I hop off and casually walk around to get a better view.

My high pitched scream could probably be heard for about two counties over when this popped up to greet me. Suddenly I realize Mrs. Badger is between me and the bike. Fortunately I left it running, so after the 50 yard circle to get in the safest tactical position, I made a dash for it. Hopped on slammed first gear and roosted for about 100 yards. Hopefully she moves out before my next ride but at least it’s on a straight away so I won’t need to slow down.

Please come clean this coffee off my monitor! I imagined this scream and I'm still laughing! Stupid, vivid imagination!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

So when does the wildlife refuge portion open? Guided motorcycle tours of the South Tex Wilderness Reserve.....get some elephants, gazelles and the sort to go with that 🦡. If you have any water crossings, get a crocodile or two.

Lived here most my life and this is the first time I've heard of a badger in Texas. Well at least one with four legs...😉

How large do you suppose it was? You gonna skin that varmit?
While she was growling eye to eye I’d say about 375 lb. now that I’m safely far far far away I’ll guess 20lb. And nope, she can live and keep catching smaller rodents and maybe a few snakes. I’ll just go put an obstacle there to keep her safe on the track.

Happened too quick to get a pic but Sunday when @StromXTc was here, we came around a turn and almost wiped out on 2 sows and a few dozen lil squealers. I got 3 tanks and a semi dry creek so there’s lotsa critters out here.

Excerpt from above article:

"Distribution
They occur west of the Great Lakes region throughout the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains. Locally, they are most common in portions of West and South Texas although they occasionally are sighted in the eastern part of the state."

You got a shout out! So it was obvious you have Badgers!!
