I’ve been in South Texas for a few days now. Down from Los Angeles way. Drove down in a new RV with my trusty sidekick, Hershey. To those of you who don’t know, Hershey is a 10 year old female Chocolate Lab. She is a helluva navigator, let me tell you..
We made three stops on the way and camped in RV parks in Tucson, AZ., Van Horn, TX., and San Angelo, TX.
San Angelo is home to three very good friends of mine, the Garza brothers, Henry, JoJo, and Ringo. Together they are known as the Los Lonely Boys, one of the most talented bands out there. They lay down their distinct brand of “Texican” Rock and Roll, and mister, they can flat out play.
I rolled into Henry’s house an plugged my RV in and fed Hershey. Then we went inside and recorded my Steve Austin Show podcast you guys heard on Tuesday’s show. The beer was flowing and the guys busted out their guitars on the SAS Unleashed show that will air tomorrow on iTunes and podcastone.com. It is a must hear show, believe me. Some great stories, some great BS, and some great music.
After that Ringo cooked up the best carne guisada I’ve ever eaten. Helluva cook. Homemade tortillas, guacamole, beans. It was awesome. I sat down with the brothers and their families and had a great meal. La Familia for sure.
Henry and Ringo kept my sorry add up till 5:30 the next morning. Ouch. Thank you. The next morning I unplugged my RV and hauled ass to the Broken Skull Ranch.
It’s deer season. My favorite time of year. Old Teddy, @tedfowler361 on Twitter has been working his ass off mowing, filling feeders, and doing general repairs on everything.
Nueces River had out Southen border under water for a couple weeks. Highest I’ve ever seen that river.
Everything here is very green. Deer movement is slow. Seeing lot of does with fawns and sets of twin fawns. Bucks aren’t moving much yet. I did see a helluva 10 point this evening that will go very close to 160. 5.5 year old deer. Great potential.
And as the season goes on, I’ll keep you posted. Gonna get hot and heavy soon enough. When the Rut hits, it’ll be a Pier 6 Brawl!
Don’t forget to check out Steve Austin Show Unleashed tomorrow on iTunes and podcastone.com. It’s a bad ass show with a lot of stories…
