It’s no secret the Big Bend Region of Far West Texas is one of my favorite escapes. Spotty cell service, wide open spaces, no television, and endless nature is my drink of choice. I had the pleasure of writing this feature for the 2019-2020 Big Bend and Texas Mountains Travel Guide. Read the article here (accompanied by fabulous photographs from Sarah Vasquez). As a result of writing this article, I received a personal invite by one of the original Fandango “groovers” to Ultimate Fandango Sept. 30-Oct. 4, 2020. You, too, are invited—let’s all go toast our youth over the Rio Grande!
It’s true I’m a bit of a nomad, but I always love returning home to West Texas. I wrote about my experience learning how to drive on the ranch for Texas Co-op Power magazine. I know a lot of you can relate! Please share your “learning to drive” stories in the comments below. Read the article here and check out the awesome illustration that the talented Otto Steininger created to accompany the story.
