moments of silence...













Alpine supply run today for door hardware and other stuff.  Took the time to stop and ponder markers on 118 where 2 lives ended.  94,102,68,0,B

Hopefully someone who drinks or drugs and drives will think again. Worse than killing yourself is being responsible for someone else's passing.

One would have to assume the road wasn't much of a factor. I drove 118 to Alpine once, that's about as straight a stretch of road as one can find.

I'm assuming someone feel asleep behind the wheel, or alcohol/drugs were involved. Sad either way.

In West Texas most fatal wrecks are one car roll overs...Long roads, people just take a nap!

Sad, but it's good to remember that we're only passing through...

I don't know... 118 has some pretty nice curves right outside Alpine.
