Title: Terlingua Ranch Visit
Post by: 1badtk on September 17, 2009, 12:06:46 PM
We just spent 9 days at the Getaway Home about 10 miles into the ranch area for the 1st time. We enjoyed every minute of it including the rain as it passed thru every day and on Friday 9-11 at the Getaway Home. Lots of wildlife, friendly people, and good food at the Grub Shack. We hiked Big Bend, drove Old Ore and Maverick Rd, visited Terlingua and Study Butte including the old store and ghost town. Drove from Lajitas to Redford for the views, and biked some of the roads within the ranch. Saw a few of you while there, including the half wolf riding atop the old truck with his owner. Quite a site I must say.
Looking forward to visiting again if the Getaway Home is available this spring. Love Your Country and am a big fan of the area, God Bless you all.

Thanks for the information 1badtk.  I have stayed at another location owned by Tom Jacobs...he's a great guy.  I'll be staying in the Getaway after my December 11-12 South Rim visit.  I'm getting Big Bend fever!

We are already making plans to return in March or April for a Spring time stay.

Yes that's it and we are scheduled to return the second week in April. The drive way is a thrill ride in itself, and one tuff ride on a mountain bike :-)
