Spring Day Trip

Just taking a break before I head home from a nice little day trip. I went out to a private ranch that has some nice ravines in it. It is about an hour from my house. The property belongs to an old family friend. Funny thing that right near this place is a little food place that oddly enough has wi-fi. So I just made it back to the road from the ranch and here I sit, waiting for my food, and I can actually take a few minutes and write this post.

Most memorable part of my trip….getting down into this one ravine and feeling like I could have been on my own planet. The place I was had a lot of twists and bends so I could only see a little ways in either direction, up or down canyon. Below me was the water and above was the sky. Blue as anything. I spent quite awhile just sitting in that one spot. I would periodically close my eyes for awhile. Listening. The water, little critters scurrying about and kicking little rocks downhill, buzzing of the bugs and an occasional chirp. It was one of those times you only get to have when you are outside and looking for a bit of peace and adventure.

Living the High Life

Alright, time to start up this new blog of mine. The plan is to use this space to talk about my travels. I love to hit the road and the friendly skies and thought I should keep track of some of that stuff here.

Some background….I live in Odessa, Texas and am a simple country boy. Being outdoors is what I like to to do most. This means I also enjoy a lot of other things that include being out in nature. Hunting, fishing, hiking and stuff like that. I get out of the state when I can but get out to a lot of places that are within a hundred or so miles of my hometown. I am lucky in that there is a lot of open space around where I live. It can be tough to find public land if you are not from around here but for me, there are a lot of really cool places I can get to since I have lived here all my life.

Anyway, if your reading this thanks for checking the blog out. Be well.
