It must be important to have an impressive entrance to your ranch. I have pedalled past a boatload of them. Large cut stone, custom wrought iron security gates and lintels, and attractive fencing seem to be the standard. A circular tree lined driveway leading to a distant house, and a private airstrip adds a nice touch. We sure devote a lot of resources to appearances. It is nice to create a peaceful and attractive setting, but I can't help thinking about that camel and the eye of a needle.
My rest day started at 4:30 am. I drove to San Antonio for TV interviews, 3 high school talks, and meeting with the Teens in the Driver Seat program. Enjoyed a late afternoon visit to the Alamo and historic sites, the riverwallk, outside music, and a boat ride. Heading back to Austin tomorrow afternoon.
