Big Bend 2003
Roy Thomas and I rode to Big Bend on our bikes in October 2003. The weather was good and we enjoyed fantastic scenery. However, when we headed for home going up to Alpine from Study Butte we ran into first, rain then sleet then snow. Once we left Alpine heading east on US 90 towards San Antonio we got rain all the way home. Somewhere around Loop 1604 it became dark and I found out that my headlights were not working. Therefore, I had to ride in close formation with Roy using his headlights as a method to ride safely. Once at his home in his garage with ample light we were able to determine the fuse had blown. With a repared fuse in place I made the rest of the trip to my home and the comfort of dry clothing.
