I've heard claims that there is lots of fresh pork wandering about in Texas. Do you gather up a few for the grill or smoker?

Yes! Pork fajitas scheduled for grilling soon. Pig is always great grilled or smoked.

While living and working in west Texas, this Hoosier had the job of training newly hired college grads from India. Part of their training was understanding their new culture. I'd warn them I was living in a foreign country, too. Truth.

Ground Zero is my favorite radio show out of Portland, Oregon. I cruised the 101 along the Oregon coast last summer it was awesome. Spent a few days at the Columbia River Gorge that was cool. Why can’t you fill you’re own gas in Oregon! You can smoke weed but you can’t fill gas?

Then you got Burnet Rd., also in Austin, where I have family living nearby. It's Burn-It, Durn-It, Learn It.

Good that it's on it's own. I think Texas is somewhat to the USA what Bavaria is to Germany, it has it's own stereotypes made into the national ones and it attracts stereotypes from elsewhere in the country. I like stereotypes but don't take them very seriously, I just find this video funny. I presume he mentioned Vidor specifically for a reason.

New Braunfels, Fredericksburg, most of the Texas hill country was settle by German immigrants. The towns have Octoberfest with traditional German cultural stuff like beer real beer not Keystone Light Wurstfest too, full of German foods like sausage and sauerkraut. My maternal grandparents could speak German. Popular waterpark called Schiltterbahn... plenty of German cultural influences in Texas.

We had to look a long time to find bratwurst when I lived in Texas, and some friends born and raised there had never seen them before.

The state fire marshal has said can now but somebody still has to be there.

Smoking anything and pumping gas at the same time are never recommended of COURSE. My dad was a smoker and ran gas stations...of course, it was the woman that took out one of our pumps with her car than almost closed down the show...

I read gas is now self service in OR due to covid. Not really sure how that makes sense.

Agree about the Gorge. Beautiful, great hiking if you can tolerate a crowd. Strongest wind I think I've ever been in.

We've had cardlock pumps for years, somebody still has to attend to the station in this case,

There may be a correlation.

Riding up the Columbia River Gorge Historic Highway to Crown Point aka Vista House is my Tuesday/Thursday after work ride 😁 Do NOT say this to anyone from Texas, but it beats the hell out of a 115F ride into a 30 mph headwind on chip seal with nothing to see but prickly pear.
