Bend It Like Texas

Big Bend is not a National Park I ever planned on visiting. I had heard about it. I had even heard good things about it. But, it's just so far away...and in the desert...and it's hot. I don't like hot. I'm a winter kind of guy. I like the cold and the snow. My idea of high temperatures is anything above 72°, and Big Bend is most definitely above 72°.

Nobody Said There Would Be Feral Hogs!

Even when I was a little kid, I hated Daylight Savings. Okay, that isn’t completely honest, I always liked to “Fall Back”. For some reason, gaining a single hour felt like a small victory. But “Spring Forward”, to lose an entire hour…on the weekend! That is just wrong on so many levels. Well, my opinion of Daylight Savings has not changed much, but now I have a new use for it.
