REI Adventures Big Bend tour
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:13:38 AM »
An interesting tour of West Texas and the Big Bend.  $3600 if you are a member, air fare not included..   :icon_eek:

Hell, with airfare, my trips from NC for a week or more including usually 2 or 3 motels and rental car don't cost me more than $1000 when I bring one person with me to share expenses.
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water
