My attempt to make it to my 10 acres in Terlingua Ranch and make a go of living on it. From the start it hasn't gone good at all, but I'm hopeful things will turn around!

Looks like I inherited some rocks. Either the colonel or his wife one forgot to load up these rocks or didn't think they were good enough to take. Or...Maybe they wanted to push me toward becoming a rock hound to? If that was the case it might have worked. Probably won't mean much to most of the people around here, but to those in other areas where these aren't easily come by it could have a certain amount of cool.
As a side note the weather has been and is lousy! Cold, windy and cloudy with a few sprinkles off and on. Fortunately the wind has died down and the sun is actually trying to come out now that it doesn't have much time to do any good.
And on another side note since the chili cook off will be coming up this next week I may have to postpone some plans for trying to get to the land and do some work on the road. From what I hear there will be too many state troopers in the area just looking to pull people over. Maybe I'll just sit by the road in front of the RV park and watch them pull everyone else over instead. Maybe after the chili cook off is over I'm thinking of using a 4x4 and towing the tailgate from my trailer up and down the road to knock down the grass and probably rip it out of the ground at the same time. Should help level the road also? I've used railroad rail like that before and had very good luck with it. I've got to start somewhere right?
