Red Clay, Twisties, And Google Map
I will just say this for now: We rode everything the road threw at us today. There were some tremendous uphills and downhills, exhilarating twist-and-turns, blurring high-speed straights, and an 11-mile, 15-mph stretch of dusty, bumpy red-clay road…
With two major hurricanes in the past three-and-a-half years, there remains many missing road signs across SE Texas which further complicate, or enrich (depending on how one looks at it) the navigation of our brand-new route today. To make things even more interesting, it seems that even with the highest magnification on Google (Satellite) Map, it is often difficult, if not impossible, to tell ahead of time exactly where the asphalt ends and dirt road begins. It was great, though, and we finally made it to Pickett House in Woodville, Texas, with only a few minor delays.
Definitely one of the finest rides we’ve ever been around these parts, and seriously worth doing again–minus the red-clay road, preferably.–Lorenzo
