No Bar Too Far

Double Cat Bone Zune Moment this morning…….

You Can’t Always Get What You Want  by the Rolling Stones from the Let It Bleed cd ca. 1969
For What Its’  Worth  by Buffalo Springfield from their debut cd somewhere around late ’67 or early 1968

The Perils of Big Bend, TX

Rock road in Big Bend National Park

Another story from the recent Terlingua, West Texas RV road trip……

The roads are predominately unpaved in the area.  Too rural and too poor to expect much else.  Notice I said ‘unpaved’ –  not ‘gravel’ roads.   They don’t haul
