We’d had good weather all weekend, dangerous storms having gone around us at night, and the sun having shone on us during the day. We ran into light rain a few miles from home. The clouds in Kerrville had turned into a deluge upon reaching the coast and we rode in as it was pushing into the Gulf. I guess we just live right. The road goes on forever
