Mander is known for her spittin’ and sputterin’, so at first I thought it was just another plugged fuel filter. Luckily, I have long since learned to travel with extra filters, so it wasn’t no thang. I pulled into a rest stop, swapped on a new one and was on merry way.
Once I was finally able to eat and keep it down, I started to feel a little better. My friend, Gavin, went home and although I was still very weak, I decided to go back to work.
Spring break was about to hit Terlingua hard and my friend, Gavin, was coming for a visit. What I didn’t know was that Gavin had picked up a hitchhiker, so to speak, along the way and it was about to make my life a living hell.
I came out of Big Bend and went to see John about getting started serving. I wasn’t sure if he was going to remember me but fear not, he already had me on the schedule for that evening!
Before I went into Big Bend NP, I spent the weekend exploring Terlingua. Terlingua is one of the few towns bordering the park and is considered a “ghost town” even though people are inhabiting the place.
In my last post, we covered the not always fun part of exploring new places, logistics. Now I’d like to talk about some of the must see and do’s that I discovered during my 2 weeks in Big Bend.
Linda and Grinnell said they would come check on me to make sure I had made it to my next campsite safely, and that’s just what they did. I wasn’t settled for long, before I saw their bad ass adventure mobile bumping down the road.
