There have been a few dirt roads that I drive past all the time that I wanted to check out. Finally having some time we took a little family Sunday drive to find out where they go.
I love badgers. When I saw that crazy little guy waddling across the road I nearly drove in to a ditch. I started firing off pictures and spinning the tires which was a bad idea cause they are well worn but it was a BADGER and I couldn't contain myself. Anyway, I think when I did that I punctured both my back tires. Luckily we got back to pavement before too long and I changed one while Sarah plugged the other with her thumb to keep as much air in the sucker as possible until we made it back to town. Somehow it struck us as funny and not sad. I think cause I am pretty accustomed to flats. I get about 1 a month it seems, plus all my tires have been punctured (I think this was puncture number 7 for rear lefty) and worn to the point that I was planning on buying new tires before winter anyway. Which in Evanston means within the next 6 weeks. It was well worth the effort though. I had no idea any of that stuff was out there and now I know where the road goes so when I get in a car chase with Boss Hogg and Roscoe me Bo and Luke can lose him and meet up with Uncle Jesse and Cooter at the badger hole.
