RgRugg, Wishing you a save trip. Where in Texas are you headed?
I'm a Native Son of Texas by birth, a New Mexican by Choice. But you can take a Texan out of Texas, but hard to get Texas out of him. Ha!
I've been mulling it over in my head of taking a jaunt down to the Big Bend, been there only once. Might even wander down toward Comstock and Langtry, never been to the Seminole Canyon State Park & Historic Site. Langtry had a nice Texas Travel Information Center, but haven't been by that area in ages.

Also, The fabled history of the Wild West's most famous judge is recalled at the nearby Judge Roy Bean visitors center. For a Justice of the Peace, he made quite a name for himself. Not many JPs are known for hanging men. His brother, Sam Bean was Sheriff of Dona Ana County. Some of his relatives still live out this way.
