Aug 19, 2016 - Mountain Home TX - YO Ranch Headquarters

We went to YO Ranch Headquarters to take a Tour of their Exotic Animals, it was an outstanding tour we had such fun with Debbie our guide, she is also the Director of Marketing and Tourism. The Y.O. Ranch (now YO Ranch Headquarters) was founded in 1880 by former Texas Ranger Charles Schreiner, who served on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War. Although he eventually accumulated 550,000 acres of land and sent more than 300,000 head of longhorns up the trail from Texas to Kansas, he was best known in Kerrville, where he settled,...

Sep 18, 2012 - Last Supper

Tuesday, September 18, 2012 Today was our last day of travelling together. It started off by us leaving Van Horn at 8:39 under a bright blue sky with small white clouds dotted all over the sky.

Apr 8, 2007 - Back Into Texas

April 5-8 We drove south through Carlsbad. Did not stop to see the caverns this time. Been there, done that as they say. Made it as far as Ft. Stockton in Texas before deciding to stop for the night. There's a "plain Jane" sort of RV park there (Passport) that I remembered staying in once before when we traveled out this way with Raymond and Glenda. Still there and still not very impressive, but for $9 for W/E/S overnight it was just what we needed. Walked for awhile with AF and Buddy, but me and Buddy quit after a few blocks. Alice Faye...
