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!

Lost in Terlingua
Went in to SB this morning to take a shower and get supplies and found Frann at the BBMI cafe so had breakfast with her. Enjoyed the visit and the breakfast was plenty good as usual for there. She is wanting to introduce me to her neighbor Dale Wood who is an older ex-NASCAR driver so I was going to go to her place after my shower, but couldn't find it and got lost on the way. Guess I should have taken Laurie and the Horseshoe for good luck in finding her place. I've slept too many times since I was there last and it seemed to have changed some to. I did turn on one road that I thought was hers, but after driving for some time I decided that couldn't be it so turned around and went back to South County road. At that time I had a senior moment and turned left rather then right and drove about 4 miles looking for highway 170 and noticed the sun wasn't where it was supposed to be so turned around and went back. Once I hit 170 I said to heck with it since I was running low on gas and headed for the SB store for gas and the Cottonwood for other stuff before heading home.
I started thinking about what she had said about Dale saying his brother had restored an old Ford Bronco for him and then realized that I had already met him. He was the guy I met at the Cottonwood back when the Cobras were down here and he was also the guy that asked me if I'd sell the Falcon to him. He had told me he had a 66 Falcon Ranchero that he used to tow his race car with back many years ago. No wonder he knows Carrol Shelby!
