Littlefield, Texas – Day 3

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

The motorhome is still parked at the Waylon Jennings RV Park. I expect to leave here tomorrow.

Yesterday I drove the Bronco the about one mile to look around Waylon Jennings hometown, population about 6,300.

There is a by-pass highway that goes around Littlefield. On the main drag roughly 50% of the storefronts are boarded-up. Even the Chamber of Commerce looked closed…

Littlefield is basically out in the middle of nowhere Texas. Muleshoe is about 30 miles to the north and Lubbock is about 30 miles to the south. It’s hard to imagine what life was like for a young Waylon. Born in 1937, dropped out of school in the 10th grade and moved to Lubbock when he was 17 in 1954. Other than his music, picking cotton was a way of life here.

Enjoying the interesting places is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
