Texassss! After adventurin' around in New Mexico for a few days, I decided to hit the highway for once and try to quickly eat some of these long Texas miles up. That didn't last long though, I was reminded by a friend to check out the strange town of Marfa. Marfa is miles away from everything else in Texas, both in location and style. It's the most brooklyn-y place I've seen on this trip in that it's a bunch of hip artsy people turning an old place into a creative little bubble that's fun to explore. It's full of rundown old buildings that are actually nice little shops you only discover by being a creeper and going up to peer in their windows. Definitely a great place to spend some time. After Marfa won me over, I headed up to Austin where I'd eventually camp out for a few days, waiting for a window to open in the approaching storm. Austin is a damn fun place if you like food or movies, which I totally do.
Between all the BBQ and @drafthouse screenings, I almost forgot I was on a road trip. I started getting comfortable so it was time to move, storm or no storm. Back on my camping grind, I've been hammock hopping from forest to forest, trying to make the best of 90 degree nights. Can't complain when spots like these are free, though. Arkansas up next on the road to Nashville, lookin for some hot springs!
