I spent my morning yesterday getting caught up on Ardent Camper’s blog. I love hearing about all their preparation to hit the road in an RV traveling the country. What an inspiration! I really enjoyed reading about Marie’s Bucket List Hikes which include two that are at the top of my list: Appalachian Trial and Pacific Crest Trail. I’m not the avid hiker she is though so it’s going to take a little prep on my part!
It got me thinking about my Texas Bucket List and the things I’d still like to do and the things I just did not get to accomplish while I was here.
Austin/Texas Bucket List:
1. Go to Big Bend National Park
2. In conjunction with number 1 I would have liked to also explore Marfa.
3. Paddle the Real Camino Trail
4. Visit Austin Beerworks
5. Take in a show at the Moody Theatre/ACL Live.
6. Tour Blue Bell Factory in Brenham
7. Visit the Painted Churches in Schulenburg
8. Check out the LBJ Museum.
Some of these things I can still work in but there’s some I’m just going to have to come for. Oh darn.

Aw, you inspire me too, Katharine! It took me 10 years of living in Texas before I ever made it out to Big Bend. I’d planned on checking out Marfa and the MacDonald Observatory that same long weekend, but I underestimated the amount of time it would take to drive between all of these places–especially within the National Park. My advice is to give yourself plenty of time… at least 3 days in the park and 2 days to explore surrounding areas, plus at least a day on each end for travel.
Thanks Marie! Hopefully I’ll make it out there one day!
