||Wild deer, wild
turkey, Texas longhorns, sheep and goats and the Texas Hill
Country. We must be in heaven!
That about sums up the annual trail-ride and convoy for this
year. The club had a fantastic turnout for this years event
meeting at the local VFW in Wimberley on a beautiful Saturday
morning. Lewis S, our local Wimberley resident and VFW
member treated the group to coffee and donuts and then staged for
a 37 mile trip through some of the most scenic parts of Central
Those attending included Lewis S and his M38A1, Danny K and his
M151A2, Herb T and his GPW, me and my M38A1, Jim W and his
M38, Glen V and his CJ2A, Jim H and his MB and rounding out the
vehicles was Milburn L and his M8 Scout Car. Also along for
the event was Don and Carol L from Bryan/College Station and a
friend of Milburn's, Howard.
Promptly at 10:00am, we departed the VFW and headed straight
for the hill country. With Lewis leading and me as
tail-end-charlie, the group of eight vehicles wound it's way
through low water crossings, one-lane bridges, multiple cattle
guards switchbacks. Along the way, we saw several groups of
deer, turkey, sheep/goats and many ranches with herds of Texas
After traveling 37 miles or so, the entire group found its way
to the local Subway sandwich shop where we all chowed down.
After lunch, we took the short 3 mile trip back to the VFW, loaded
up and departed. On a side note, all eight vehicles
completed the trip and no malfunctions were noted along the way.
Many thanks must go to Lewis S, our event coordinator on this
event for a wonderful time!
