Weiss Store is on FM 390 between Independence and Hwy 36 in Washington County. There’s not a real store there but the distance to Hong Kong is always-on. The sign has its own lightpost powered by a solar panel. This oddity has been developing for 40 years.

Take Gerke Rd to a right on Clay Creek Rd. You’re in Valley Forge—a community that time forgot and scenic beauty that’s unforgettable. Keep going, Clay Creek becomes Sun Oil Rd and horseshoes you back to FM 390. There’s a short patch of caliche so keep it slow. County roads are perfect for nature cruisin’ (about 35mph). They don’t show up on maps, you won’t see many cars, and you’ll never see another motorcycle.

Don’t believe it—it’s only the beginning.
