    Isn't "trust", or " honor system" an admirable thing to see in today's hectic world, especially when it isn't abused?

    I think one of the things that helped convince my wife when I was courting her that America was OK was when we encountered a self-pay wagon load of kiwi out in California's central valley. I responded to her amazement by asking if the can of money or fruit would be stolen in her home country. She said the whole wagon would be likely be gone in short order. So of course we paid for a big bag of kiwis. To this day simply seeing kiwi brings back pleasant memories and re-affirms our faith in mankind's potential.

    Relaxing at the Chisos Mountain Lodge on Thursday March 10th:

    Effanflood Jim's BIG Bike was acting up, so we followed him to the lodge in the truck while Borneo and Gary from Ft. Wayne, rode the length of the River Road on their Kawasaki 650s....giving us time to hit the bar, get our rooms, and eat a meal with the Mountain View:

    Jim, Gary, and Kurt, headed out on Friday Morning for Austin....without a doubt some of the great views in Big Bend can be found just sitting at the Bar in the Chisos Lodge:

    Once home it was easy to see why it was "acting up", this starter was fried.
