West Texas Adventure

I've been trying to wrestle more free time into my life. I've been so out of practice with free time that I find myself wondering what to do with myself when I finally get it. My general answer is either: read, swim, or start dreaming and scheming (sometimes I combine the latter two). 

I've been reading some great escape fiction lately (and love this book that I'm currently reading). But I've also started planning (so much fun!). My recent plan involves a future vacation. Our school schedule gives us more than a week to travel in the fall, winter, and spring. We've got a trip to the Pacific Northwest sitting in our vacation queue, but I also started thinking about what it might look like to rent an RV and drive to West Texas (think Big Bend and Marfa). 

We find that five days works well for a family vacation (that's what we did for our trip to the Bay Area and our trip to San Diego), so here's what I'm thinking for a potential Wild West Adventure:

  • Hit the road at 7:30am
  • Stop somewhere fun for lunch
  • Stop somewhere fun for dinner
  • Settle into a Big Bend RV Park for the night
  • Hike, swim, go horseback riding
  • Nap
  • Hike or swim
  • Head to Marfa
  • Eat lunch out
  • Nap
  • Ride our bikes around town
  • Eat dinner out
  • Head to the Observatory at night
  • Eat breakfast in Marfa
  • Go to the art museum
  • Nap
  • Swim at the RV park
  • Eat dinner out
  • Head home
