Re: Going throught Del Rio to Big Bend...Is it Safe?

I might well be wrong (usually am) but I had the feeling from the start that this thread was a TROLL. As I said, I could be wrong.

Re: Going throught Del Rio to Big Bend...Is it Safe?

I drive big trucks and a couple months ago had a LTL run from Laredo, US83 to Carrizo Springs, then US277 to Del Rio, then US90 to Van Horn, with a bunch of stops along the way. Nice 3 day trip since some consignees were only open 8 hours a day and not a one had a loading dock. Met lots of good people along the way, and I'm not a people person.

Advise a visit to San Felipe Spgs. Why it was settled, why it exists.

Re: Going throught Del Rio to Big Bend...Is it Safe?

we have been thru there all 3 times we have been to big bend. no problems
Our issue is to get gas just before going over the lake as it is about 110 miles for the next gas station and our v-maxes go into reserve at about that. Don't even think of passing judge roy beans place in langtry.
90 is Soooooo much more peacefull and scenic ride/drive. and stop at the lookout going over the river.

Skillets in DR had a good breakfast. Ask for SuePop to be your waitress.

Re: Going throught Del Rio to Big Bend...Is it Safe?

You didn't say if 2up or not.
Take I10 west to 163 south to Comstock, west on 90. 163 eventually follows Devil's River for a bit.
Quite a contrast between the river 'valley' and the higher upper portions.
Watch for The Snake.. not really that bad.

Out west of Comstock, stop by Seminole Canyon SP (only found one cacti in bloom), then further west Langtree (Judge Roy Bean), then a tad more further west, stop by the gravesite of the last Texas train robbers (Sanderson i think it was).

Lots of flowers in bloom.

I made this run last week.
