The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

Remote


Sierra Blanca, Texas

If you want to live far removed from everyone and everything, Sierra Blanca is the place for you.


You do your own vehicle repairs and maintenance, right?


Well, you didn't want to go out to eat anyway...did you?

Here is a little fix 'er upper for you.  No money down, move right in today.

Thats something you would never find in the netherlands. Not enough room. And you have endless spaces so why remove it. But it gives a very pretty kind of urbex shots if you find such a ghost place.

Thanks, but no thanks. No wonder everyone moved away.

A bit spooky all those abandoned places, but good for pictures. I like those B&W too.

Great photos! But Texas? You and Sinbad really ARE gluttons for punishment! But yeah, like you, I'd go all that distance just for those photos.

Sometimes I like the idea of heading off away from everything but seeing those pics changes my mind!

Ha, ha, just the place for the self-sufficient recluse. The barrenness of the place is a bit spooky, though.

Seldom do I prefer a black and white shot over the color one, but in this case, it's so much better! Nice job.
