Shared fwiw & fwi
Just heard from a friend at church who has a son with a friend in the military. The son's friend said that "supposedly Monday is starting a 14 day quarantine nation-wide.
You will need a pass to leave your house. If you work an essential business you will get a pass".

So, I can't vouch 100% for this but thought it would be worth sharing.
We will find out soon.

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf took to Twitter Friday evening to counter rumors of a nation wide lockdown over coronavirus.

Wolf alluded specifically to texts purporting to quote DHS officials and those with inside knowledge warning the department is planning a national lock down.



Acting Secretary Chad Wolf

@DHS_Wolf
Hearing a lot about texts from "friends at DHS" or "friends with connections at DHS" that say DHS is planning a national lock down.

THIS IS NOT TRUE.

Do not believe the disinformation campaigns. Please do not pass it along. Use trusted local and federal government sources.

One of my sales managers says he has a brother that works at CIA that told him the same thing - Monday lockdown...

Sales managers dont always have a firm grip on the truth...so take it for what its worth...

I've seen one of the passes. Definitely trending in this direction. I will welcome this 2 week vacation. More than that and there will be problems.

My 2nd cousin, twice removed called my sister about her neighbor's niece, who works for Homeland Security, said there may be a lockdown on Monday. Which Monday, she did not say.

They are kicking everyone except permanent residents from all hotels, motels, vrbo/airbb, rv parks, and campgrounds by Monday in West Texas. Bars are closed, restaurants to go only. Twilight Zone.

Never let a crisis go to waste.
This is the biggest crisis, real or fake, that I've seen - what it will look like after the 'lockdown' is over is what I'm wondering. Never seen things come to a halt.

Fear will only last so long. Pretty soon everyone is going to be more concerned with their lost wealth.

For what little it is worth I also heard this in a mobile game chat from someone who claims to work for Homeland Security, said FEMA will shut everything down on Monday, although this person said it will be 3 weeks....

This pisses me off. I get it for the crowded cities, but I live in a town of 860. So I cant go across the street for a walk in the woods? Good thing here is that our single police officer will no doubt not enforce it.

Exactly WHERE IN WEST TEXAS DO YOU SEE ANY OF THAT?

None of that BS here in San Angelo. Not yet at least. I would LOVE TO SEE PROOF OF THAT. SAY LIKE EMPTY RV PARKS, HOTELS & MOTELS, etc

It's NOT happening here. And I just went past a man camp not far from SA. Completely full with oil field workers.

Sorry, but the oil patch workers will be called 'vital personnel' so the oil will still flow, regardless of how cheaply. IT WILL STILL FLOW.

But most people are too unprepared for what is coming. Then there is the 10%-15% of us that have been prepared for a long time. We are all still 'filling in holes' for our preps because we store what we actually eat, not some freeze dried crap (though even I have some powdered milk and powdered eggs). Bought it 22 years ago. This is what your pantry SHOULD LOOK LIKE.

BREWSTER COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT just voted that all hotels, motels, and short term rentals in the county should vacate their guests by noon on Monday, March 23 until April 2. Guests who have established permanent residency in those establishments may remain.
Commissioners also voted to vacate guests in all parks and campgrounds in the county by noon Monday, March 23 until April 2 unless the guest has established permanent residence at those locations.

Nice pantry, there, wally. Do you do anything for climate control?
I have a small, fully insulated outbuilding that I use for LT storage. It has 3 55 gallon drums of water in there that basically keep the interior at 55 - 60° all year round.

No, don't know about El Paso. I know what's going on in Brewster, Jeff Davis, and Presido counties. Spring Break is canceled, everything is shut down. The National Parks and State Parks are open, but no services and no group camping.

None of the counties in the Big Bend has a lot of people - one per square mile at the most. The county commissioners and the city of Alpine and Marfa have all voted to shut things down.

I don't know her, but I've heard of the Woodward ranch and rock hounding there - think it sold a few years ago and the new owners aren't allowing rock hunting.

Yes it was sold after Trey Woodward died. A great place, used to fish and hunt calamity creek there. Jan is a great lady. I never did go rock hunting though many did. I think the target was red plume agate.

Location

The Historic Woodward Ranch is comprised of 2,222 acres and is located on the banks of yearround
live Calamity and Ash Creeks on both sides of Highway 118 south of Alpine and has been
visited by Big Bend travelers and rock hounds from all over the world. County maintained Calamity
Creek Road heads west off 118 fifteen miles south of downtown Alpine through the ranch, past the
Woodward Ranch headquarters to the Calamity Creek camping area. The Woodward Ranch is the
gateway into the Big Bend Country with its over 1,000,000 acres of parks and public lands and is an
hour’s drive north of Lajitas and Terlingua and their outdoor adventures and amenities. Cathedral
Mountain (6,860 feet), one of the area's iconic peaks, towers over the ranch to the west and
Elephant Mountain Wildlife Management Area is just across the highway waiting to be explored.
And with elevations between 4,800 and 5,020 feet, at the ranch you are in one of the best year-round
climates in the state and arguably the entire country.

Acreage
2, 222 acres in Brewster County.

Description

Famous for its unique red plume agate as well as black plume, golden plume, opal, and over 50 other
kinds of agates and gemstones, the Woodward Ranch has a history of visitors who are rock
collectors, nature lovers, hunters, hikers, birders, or just folks wanting to get away from it all. There
is an east 1,403 acre section with a main gate fronting on Highway 118 and beautiful Ash Creek
cutting through the middle creating lush meadows and two large mountains. This is high
Chihuahuan Desert grasslands and riparian woodlands studded with interesting outcrops of rocks
and large trees creating a scenic wonderland. On the West side of the highway are the historic ranch
headquarters, 12 space pull-through RV Park, and rock shop. Two cabins approximately 2 miles
from the headquarters are located along the banks of Calamity Creek. This 822 acre section has the
famous Opel Mine Mountain and hills covered in ancient, interesting rocks from an extinct volcano
nearby named Eagle Peak. Names like Agate Hill, Red Plume Canyon, Flower Garden, Labradorite
Hill, and Opel Mine give away the secrets lying on or just below the surface waiting to be
discovered.

Habitat

The Woodward Ranch is dominated by mile-high grasslands of Cane Bluestem, Blue Gramma,
and Sideoats Gramma with rhyolite palisades mountains studded with Juniper, Emory and Grey
Oaks. Excellent grasses and Chihuahuan Desert plants provide habitat for the native animals,
livestock and the people who live there. Calamity and Ash Creeks have numerous stands of large
Emory Oaks, Cottonwoods, Arizona Ash, Desert Willow, and other riparian vegetation. This
diversity of plants especially near and around the springs and riparian areas are unequaled in the
Trans Pecos Region. This is historic ranching country and represents some of the best cow/calf
range in West Texas.

Wildlife

Because of the diverse habitat with springs, creeks, boulders, trees, grasses, and mountains there is
an abundance of game and non-game animals and wildlife on the Woodward Ranch. This is big
mule deer and whitetail deer country with lots of blue quail, mourning dove, and Rio Grande turkey
making this a hunter’s paradise. There are also smaller animal and bird species, found here like
javelina, fox, ringtail, mountain lion, hawks, hummingbirds, Montezuma quail, and a variety of
neotropical songbirds. Native trees, brush, and grasses provide excellent habitat for these species
and many native birds and other non-game animals. Wooded wet canyons and lush grasslands
provide excellent habitat for migratory songbirds.

Improvements

The Headquarters was built and added on to by the Woodward family over the past four
generations. The improvements include:
Main House
• Built in 1963 with native rock and cathedral ceiling is a frame house with lots of character.
• 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with sleeping porch.
• Kitchen, dining, and home office.
• Massive custom fireplace designed using beautiful gemstones found on the ranch and in the
region.
• Landscaped yard with native plants and beautiful rock walls and walking paths.
• Quiet outdoor shaded porch to enjoy the cool mountain breeze under large pines.
• Excellent local high speed internet.
Rock Shop
• Attached frame and rock retail shop and work space.
• Heritage museum featuring history and artifacts from five generations of the Woodward
family.
• Rock cutting, polishing, and store room.
RV and Campground
• Seven new RV Spaces with pull through hook-ups, five older RV spaces with pull through
hook-ups.
• Remodeled bathroom and shower.
• Tent camping area with picnic tables.
• Timber bench areas for large group visits or star gazing.
• Convenient entrance and lots of room for visitors.
Hunting Cabins
• One cabin will accommodate 7 people and includes full bath and kitchen.
• Separate and newer cabin will sleep 4 with nice bathroom.
• Great porch overlooking Calamity Creek.
• BBQ area under large shady oaks.
Other Improvements
• Rock walled barn and shop that needs new roof.
• Small cabin at HQ.
• Older trailer on west side with electricity-good building site.

Water

Woodward Ranch has abundant groundwater and two rare live creeks as well as several year round
springs. There are two submersible wells on the West Section at 77 and 483 feet. There are two
older wells on the East Side, one at 330 feet and one at 100 feet, both in need of working windmills.
The Ranch also has 12.5 ac feet of adjudicated water rights from the State of Texas.

The new owners tore down all the old structures on the ranch, and built a big ass house......even the stone house Trey and Jan lived in, what a pity.
