Big Bend Excitement

Nov 11, 2014 - We salute our Veterans

The local schools got the names of Veterans in the area and sent a invitation to each one to come to their School for a tribute and lunch, our campground supplied the names for the Winter Texans at the campground. This was a very emotional program, the schools teach these kids at a very young age to be a proud American and a Patriot and to appreciate our Military. They had a lot of talented kids, the young lady that sang the Star Spangled Banner had a voice you wouldn't believe and the 1st grade Choir were really good, one little girl read...

Nov 3, 2014 - Arrived Presidio Texas

We found this campground about 6 years ago, great people here, we have Happy Hour daily at 4pm, the woman play Mexican Train Domino daily, I have learned to play and love it. Have a golf course across the road that campers here can use free, it backs up to a Levy. They had a flood here in the Summer and the course is in bad shape, they have 3 holes fixed so far that can be played, playing in the Desert is a challenge. I am learning to play a little, the only players are us, the owner and another camper here, just over the Levy is the Rio...

Feb 10, 2011 - Alpine - From Big Bend NP on Hwy 170 to Presidio and Home

This is a different way of doing a write-up than I have done in the past. I am picking up with our trip from Big Bend National Park, Part Two and describing the rest of our outing that day. It was a long day, lots of miles, lots of fun things seen along the way and lots of pictures taken. So, thought this would be easier for one and all. Also, on the map (on the website), I annotated where we drove to (Presidio) before turning north on the route to take us back through Marfa and ultimately back here to Alpine and the coach. And, I made it a...

Mar 29, 2009 - Big Bend Ranch State Park

We talked last night and decided to take another side trip today instead of going back to Big Bend. We're going to head over to the Big Bend Ranch State Park. It is immediately west and up river from the national park. We drove across miles of what seemed like nothing when we came across a herd of pronghorns so Lee just pulled over and we took some pictures of them. Then we drove on to the western entrance to the park because of road constuction that affected the east entrance, It took us nearly two hours to get to the entrance. We stopped...

Our 2009 Travels

Apr 23, 2008 - Big Bend Ranch State Park

We drove south to Presidio, Texas, that is on the US-Mexico border. The RV park that is there was almost deserted--only 4 RV's in a park with 86 spaces! The park did have all the needed hookups and easy access. We drove out to Big Bend Ranch State Park to see how long it took to get there and check on our Madrid Falls Trip. The drive of 29 miles took about 1 hour and 15 minutes--all on dirt roads and some very rough. So that was accomplished so we went back to the RV and had a good night with the air conditioner cooling us all night! The...

Jan 17, 2008 - Dallas to Presidio, TX

Yesterday we packed our car (it seemed remarkably empty without our tent and camping gear), and drove as far as San Angelo. Today we got up early and made the long drive through South Texas. We saw Marfa for the first time, and spent some time in the Shafter ghost town. By 3:00 we had reached Presidio. We had chosen to cross here because we were bored of Nuevo Laredo and wanted to cross somewhere different. We figured it'd be a nice, easy border crossing. There was almost no one at the border, and we just drove through into Ojinaga! Was...
