Brownfield, Texas (pop. 9,358)
When checking on the population for Brownfield I noticed that the high school was rated “academically unacceptable” in 2011 by the Texas State Board of Education; the county has one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy in Texas, also an “extremely high” rate of sexually transmitted diseases; that violent and property crimes were higher than the national average; the number of residents in prison is significantly higher than the state average and “Walmart chose not to renew their lease as the town was not sufficiently economically viable for them to continue to operate.” Wow! If Walmart doesn’t want to have anything to do with your town, you’ve seriously got a problem.
Add to that, I saw on Google maps satellite view that there was a Dollar General up a ways, a few blocks. I went for a walk to get some milk. They left town! The store was vacant, boarded up.
Amanda and I blew into town in May of last year, and she discovered this fantastic place.

Most any website for RV’ers has a section for people to input ideas.
Regarding “...Walmart has not yet stocked the Halloween candy”, we stopped at Walmart in Levelland before coming to Brownfield. An entire section of the garden department was crammed full of Christmas (I’ll be nice here) ‘decorations’ and Halloween hadn’t even happened yet. There ought to be a law. No Christmas decorations to be seen until after Thanksgiving. You folks in countries that do not have Thanksgiving, I’ll leave it to you to set up your Christmas celebration standard. Happy holidays.
