    Last week I took a trip to The Enchanting State of NewMexico!!! It was a quick turn-around trip from Houston to Red River and back.



    Sunday was a long 14 hour drive from Houston to Red River onSunday…

    I spent about an hour digging myself out until a fellowTexan in a F-250 stopped and offered to pull me out.




    After I was free I went to check out Eagle Nest Lake…

    Just a few little things. It's my DD
    Love the runner! Yea, you Texas guys don't get much snow, so i guess that a good excuse for getting stuck in the snow! I was stationed in fort hood for 3 years and loved Texas.

    Thanks!! Sadly, I can't use that excuse... I'm originally from California and I've done many snow runs in the past, I was even bragging to a co-worker on how I wouldn't get stuck and there I was, stuck on the side of the road of all places. Hahahahahaha!
