Last night I turned in early as I had a long drive ahead of me today. This morning I was able to sleep in until 6:00 a.m. too dark to start the trip back to Del Rio. If I had better night vision I might have attempted it, as it was a waste of time to sit around waiting for sunrise.

While I told my friends that I would be back Thursday or Friday...in all honesty I did not know if that would be the case. The main purpose for arriving early was to reserve a camping spot for myself and my Houston friends. With that accomplished and the guys camp guarding the prime real estate, I left happy knowing that at least I was able to make my 19th trip to the Chili Cook-off. Anything after that, would be icing on the cake.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
