... drove over to Mingus (about 1.5 mi), a wide place in the road, but they did have a Veterans Park. After Bob paid homage there, we drove back out to Thurber to see the "ghost town". I can imagine that in the past, the little park there with the train car, miner's house, and church was a stopping spot, but in today's "rush to get places" everyone speeds by on I-20. After reading about the "company town" I could see the layout and the activity that would have been taking ...
another errands day, with the horses safely penned in with no means
of escape, we all disappeared to the local Dairy Queen so James had a
proper power supply and plenty of refreshments to make a dent in some
of the paperwork for the trip. We also had the suspension of the
truck checked out as it was making funny noises and went on a
miles. Rest day tomorrow, thankfully! After advice from our friendly
rancher that cutting cross country would be more of a hindrance than
a help today we continued to road plod for the route today. When I
say road plod, it is nothing like roads in the UK. Their version of a
country lane is a dirt or chalk track, and their A roads have verges
... rancher who is a handy metal worker, he has made some
amazing spurs, bits and knives. He managed to fit Lisa's spurs
properly for her and I had to persuade James that, although the bit
he liked was beautifully made it was never going to work for Nick.
The gentleman did however produce a perfect pair of ox bow stirrups
for James which work so much better for him and has made the saddle
day!!! Lisa and I joined Pauline on the errands, we found Dairy Queen
(the Texas version of KFC but ice cream focused) was a great place to
catch up with emails and blogs while Pauline attacked the Laundrette
and then we went on the mission of a Walmart shop. Back at the camp
site, we sorted kit for the next day before whizzing off to the
ranchers house for a heavenly hot shower and burgers and Texas hash
to die for! Now that is how a rest day should be!
