This trip will begin on Friday, November 9th at Buc-ee’s on U.S. 290 at F.M. 362 at 8:00 A.M. SHARP ! Come early and fill up with ethanol free gasoline. We will drive on U.S. 290 to Junction where we will stop for lunch and fuel at Cooper’s Mesquite Smoked Barbeque. 
From Junction we drive on U.S. 90 to Marathon where we will spend the first night. We will stop along the way in Langtry to see the Judge Roy Bean (the only law West of the Pecos) Museum. In Marathon you have two choices for accommodations, Eve’s Garden B and B and the prestigious Gage hotel. (The Gage was recognized by Conde Nast Magazine as the Number One Hotel in Texas; Eve’s Garden was the front-page article in a recent Texas Highways magazine.) Eve’s offers a 15% discount for LSRPCA members, call 432-386-4165 and ask for Kate for the discount. The Gage reservations may be made at 432-386-4205. Eve’s is right behind the Gage.  There will be a supper at the Gage dining room beginning at 7:00 P.M. on the 9TH for our group. (All accommodations and meals are on your own.) After a relaxing morning and breakfast (included at Eve’s and at the Gage at your expense in their excellent restaurant) We leave for a spectacular drive on Hwy 385 to Big Bend National Park and through the park on roads that were built with Ferdinand Porsche’s products in mind. Following the drive, we will bunk in the ghost town of Terlingua with your choice of two different hotels. Rooms are available at the Big Bend Holiday Hotel (432-201-1177) and the El Dorado (432-371-2111) The latter gives a 15% discount for our group. There will be a supper for our group at a location yet to be determined.  The next morning, we will have a truly magnificent drive to Presidio on the River Road (Hwy 170) with stops for pictures until we pause for Mexican food at an establishment yet to be determined. Then we drive on Hwy. 67 to Marfa where we can stay at the fabulous Paisano Hotel built in 1922.Call 432-729-3669 for reservations using the name of George Bishop as they are reserved in that name. There are also rooms in the new St George’s (432-729-3700) which is few blocks further at discounted rates.  Rooms at Paisano have been blocked for the LSRPCA and arrangements have been made for a farewell supper in their excellent dining room. This hotel housed the actors for the movie Giant filmed nearby.  Return to Houston will be on your own or you may extend your visit in the Trans Pecos. 
Reservations will be $50.00 paid in advance through All meals, rooms and fuel will be at your expense. This is “High Season” in Big Bend so if you wish to go on this trip you should call NOW to the innkeeper of your choice as soon as you register. It was extremely difficult to arrange these accommodations and the rooms will be cancelled if not booked soon!

Call George Bishop (713-305-5510) or or Edwin Goldman (281-813-8538) or or for any questions. This trip will close once 16 cars have registered.
