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.

Littlefield, Texas – Day 1

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical issues.

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the about 65 miles from Clovis, New Mexico southeast to Littlefield, Texas. When I crossed the Texas border, I also crossed into the Central Time Zone. I expect to be here 3-4 days.

When you drive southeast in mid-morning, it means you will be looking into the sun. Yesterday the asphalt on the road reflected the sun like a mirror and it was most difficult to see.

As a matter of fact the sun was so bright that I drove through Muleshoe, Texas without realizing it and missed their famous tourist attraction…Darn! Click this link to see what I missed…

Arriving in Littlefield, Texas, I pulled into the Waylon Jennings RV Park. It’s a free park with electricity, water and dump station. You can stay here for free for four days. This is Waylon Jenning’s hometown. He was a mega super-star country singer and a favorite of mine for many years. Here’s a Wikipedia informational link about him…

As always I like to show the view from the dinette window…
