Horrible news, many time visitor to bend and La Kiva, will be missed. Prayers for Glen, Family and Friends.
Visiting BB since 1966, nothing like being lost and finding heaven.

Good article.  Couple of good pics by our own Voni Glaves in there!

The article was OK, but with the mention of "camel spiders", I have to wonder how much of the rest of the article is embellished??

I liked the article, but it does make you wonder about the embellishment.

I didn't catch the camel spider reference but I did question the vinegaroon being a threat in the desert.

I liked Jenny Schooler's post on her blog about the incident as well.

I noticed a few "facts" that raised my eyebrow a bit. I'm certain most of us have been around some of the guides and other people I assume were locals knocking em down at Kiva or the Boathouse, or other spots. I don't know the people well enough to make any judgements, but two guys with repuations for getting really drunk and one ends up dead. There are a few usual dots that get connected.

A saying behind the cash register in the Study Butte Store comes to mind when I reflect on the "way of life" here in Terlingua.

"Life is tough, it's tougher when you're stupid"

I'm glad they finally fixed that sign. At one time they had one that read "when your stupid"  :icon_biggrin:

Maybe they meant to have that error?

I must have been out is the sun too long today without enough water. I cannot understand this statement:

"This sale is not the business, just the real estate & the contents of the La Kiva itself."

I suppose that means you are the landlord and own the buildings, but are not the owner/proprietor of the restaurant and cantina business... ?

I wouldn't pay a wooden nickel for it, much less $235,000
