Jun 10, 2015 - Let's go to Luckenbach, Texas

After visiting the LBJ Ranch in Stonewall, we went down the road to Luckenbach, TX. If you know anything about country music, luckenbach is a famous country music venue and was made famous by Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson with the song "Luckenbach, Texas (Back to the Basics of Love)". Jerry Jeff Walker, backed by the Lost Gonzo Band, recorded the live album "Viva Terlingua" at the Luckenbach dance hall.

Nov 22, 2014 - Texas Hill Country Trip - Day 5

November 12, 2014 (Wednesday) It is hard to believe the week is over half over. I will be so glad when I can retire and travel full time. It was very cold today. A cold front came thru yesterday and the high was 44 today with a wind chill factor in the 30s.

Mar 9, 2013 - Luckenbach, Texas

Luckenbach: “Let’s go to Luckenbach, Texas with Waylon and Willie and the boys.” G and I made a day trip to this town of song fame. Population 3. One historic home. One Post Office. One general store/tavern. A big dance hall. One cemetery. One rooster; several chickens. It was interesting to walk around there and even during the day, a man was playing the guitar and singing sad cowboy songs in the bar. It was a trip to the past of rural Texas. Bands and dancing are common on the weekend. It’s interesting how this little town is perceived....
