Had a reason to go through Electra TX yesterday. Decided to do some slumming. Revisited a couple locations Ive posted, now gone. Checked out a half dozen more Ive been looking at for years, still there. Determined I could not get in at least in broad daylight or without using bolt cutters, so I just drove around town.
Aye caramba. Got followed by the local PD everywhere I went, I drive a nice truck 2019 Ford F150 I am a conservative looking presentable white boy, and never even slowed down below the speed limit, certainly did not exceed any speed limit or violate any traffic controls. I still got the stink eye and the tail from the local gendarmes nonetheless.
Ok so even though the town has 5 or six promising buildings worth exploring, I got the feeling I would not be welcome. The residential neighborhoods are about 50% bandos, most are falling apart and collapsing. Overgrown with brush and or have compact SUVs, broken down in the yard. Sometimes more than one. Never saw so many dinky little SUVs broken down anywhere before. Its like two or three on every block. A lot are still running around though must have been a fad here for awhile.
I recall there was some huge scandal here, city government was found to be corrupt or something anyone been to Electra lately? No of course you have not. Because its not "on the way" to anywhere and had no reason to exist since 1911 when W.T. Waggoner struck oil up here. Hahahaha.. (Waggoner Ranch largest ranch in U.S. inside one fence over 535,000 acres)
If you have any plans to go slumming in Electra, watch this video from the Electra visitors bureau first. https://theconserv...st-lawful-citizen/
