Hello All! I'm picking up my new Turtleback trailer the first week of June. I'll take a few days to outfit the trailer and then I plan on making my way down to south Texas to the Big Bend National Park and spending a few days there before it gets too hot. Anyone interested in a meetup sometime between 17 - 30 June, 2019, let me know. Of course, cervezas and tacos in Boquillas, MX while we're down there so bring your passport. Look it up if you've never heard of it... it's a fun little adventure! I'll be traveling from the Phoenix, AZ area.

@OkieMizzou Are you concerned if it will be too hot in Big Bend at that time? I've on been there in November for a day trip. I'm wanting to go soon as well and I'm already concerned it'll be too hot, at least hot enough to be unpleasant in the afternoons.

For just about anyone else, it would be too hot then... Coming from Phoenix, it should provide a little bit,of relief.

Your time frame is leading up to a busy period for me in my “side hussle” but I’d be interested in a possible meetup. I might not be able to make it all the way down to Big Bend, but could certainly meet in Alpine.

Keep me posted.

It is already in the 100's in Big Bend. I suggest you camp in Chisnos Basin campground. It will be cooler up there. Then you cam make day trips from there.

Here is a link to a two part series I wrote for Toyota Trails magazine on a Big bend trip we did.
