So Long and Thanks for All the Tacos!

Austin, it sure has been real! We've had such a great time over the past three days and I'm sure we'll find ourselves in your city limits again. Thanks again to Ryan's friend, Bryan, for being the host with the most and his son, Marlo, for always helping us find the car.

We have had so many delicious tacos, enchiladas, avocados, beans, rice, guacamole, and beer. I think our unanimous favorite is Tacodeli. We have also listened to your musicians, walked in your expansive parks, and window shopped your hip stores. Ryan even got a cool new haircut for the road.

After leaving Austin, we made a stop at Hamilton Pool. It is incredibly beautiful and well worth the $15 if you're in the area. We had a little rain, but the spot feels exotic. Just beware because we saw a small snake slithering through the leaves in the water. Definitely worth the risk, though.

We spent last night at the South Llano River State Park. Shortly in to our little hike I was attacked by what I believe to be a fire ant that stung me on my left pinky toe. I survived, but it was unpleasant.

Today was another driving day because Texas is so huge, and we are now in Marfa, TX. We are spending the night in the fun and recently updated little RV park, the Tumble In. As Marfa's website states Marfa is, "tough to get to. Tougher to explain. But once you get here, you get it." Apparently it is the new Austin. We're hipper than you'll ever know.

Since we rolled into town, we went to check out the Marfa lights. If you aren't up on your unexplained phenomenon, you can check out the Wikipedia here. While we saw some lights that could possibly be attributed to distant cars on distant roads, I understand that there are other lights that are less explicable. Either way, the night sky sure is spectacular in these parts.

The plan for tomorrow is Big Bend National Park!


  1. they were not car lights... and how do you know you weren't abducted?
