I met some fabulous people in Marble Falls and Austin on my travels. Once more, I find myself in the company of such hospitality and friendliness that one cannot help but return in the future. The sound of the road sings me like a siren from the east. I cross 200 MI of Texas passing through the campus of Texas A&M and into green fields of hay, wheat and cattle. Pine forests begin to appear and I set up camp in the Sam Houston NF for a few days of hiking and enjoying the mild 70 degree days.
I hiked over 6 miles yesterday along both OHV trails and hiking only trails. The smells and feeling of a pine forest brought back so many fond memories of the east and the south, so familiar. I'm now scooting along into a cold front bringing a 30 degree swing in Temps and some rain. A common trend these past few weeks in TX.
In May 2014 I quit my job to ride a Honda Ruckus over 59'000 mi and counting. Wild camping most nights and cooking most of my own meals, I keep the costs low and the landscape changing.
