Great news! If you thought our episodes have been running long, this one will only use up 57 minutes of your life! Since you’ll never get those minutes back, I’d like to assure you they won’t be totally wasted. This is an important episode of Ward’s Adventure Travel Research and Trip Journal. As the title suggests, we discuss Flying Versus Driving To Big Bend National Park. Although on the surface, that title sounds boring, it is important because, the as it turns out, it takes 18 hours to drive from Dad’s cabin to the Chisos Mountains and the Chisos Mountain lodge, which is just too long, AND from Midland Odessa Airport to Chisos Mountain Lodge, it takes 3 hours 51 minutes (see this Google map). In the next two weeks, we’ll be researching some of the best places to hike in Big Bend National Park. So listen up, and if you’ve read this far, thank you. Can anyone guess why I’ve typed up SO MUCH DETAIL? Post your guess in the comments section for this episode on EpicFieldNotes.com. P.S. We’ll be going in February 2015, just about the best time to visit Big Bend National Park, the Rio Grande, Devil’s Den, Emory Peak, Ernst Tinaja, Hot Springs, Lost Mine Trail, Santa Elena Canyon, the South Rim Loop, and more.
