Wow - did you know there are 412 Ghost Towns in Texas?

I didn't. Neat stuff!

This is a great site in general with lots of adventure stuff to discover in our own back yards -- for those of us who live here.

I don't know about you, but Bug Tussle is on my short list of day-trip places to check out in North Texas.

Click here to check it out!

jpg - thanks for stopping by - and try to enjoy it, anyhoo. We might as well find what there is to see in our neck of the woods!

Wow, talk about coincidences! I just mentioned Bugtussle on my blog, and here you are blogging about it, too!

Thanks for the comments on my blog the other day, by the way. I visit here often through Tam's blog.

That IS a huge coincidence! Thanks for reading. I'm glad I finally moseyed over to your blog, because your writing is fantastic and your stories are very compelling. I'll be there more often in future. :)

That's great to know. It's made my day.

Bug Tussle - is that the greatest name in the history of great names or what?

That is two hours of my life I'm not going to get back. But it was worth it. There are two towns I'm going to find. Juliff and Gulf Prarie, TX. Maybe I'll take my mom. She loves this shit too.

There's a ghost town called Bugscuffle near here that I odn't see on that site.

We've got one south of here called Ding Dong. Great site. I'll spend hours surfin' there.

tickersoid - I suppose y'all don't have a lot of ghost towns around Wales, do ya? Glad you liked it.

zelda - Sweet - glad you enjoyed it! I think anything that helps you find the interesting nooks and crannies around the state is a great resource. I hope your mum'll like it

lawdog - NOW I'm going to be on a mission to find Bugscuffle!

fathairybastard - OK< Ding Dong is going right to the top 5 of the list for me - didn't notice it on there before. CHeers!

Tickersoid said...

No we don't, not enough real estate. I've only ever seen them in the movies. Didn't know they still existed and so many.

All that has to happen is the Rail Road or highway bypasses some little town. Next thing you know people move away and the place dies. Happens a lot.

Bugtussle is nothing more than an old gas station now.
It was down the road from my dad's ranch, so I'm very familar with it.

So many train stops that ceased to be needed. So many watering holes gone bad. Hey, ever been to Cookietown? Population 8, last I was there anyway.
