Is anyone planning on heading to Big Bend for the Terlingua Chili Festival? I'm putting together a trip for that weekend and would like to meetup with other "benders".

'Crunk'....would that be an indication of a head start on the drinking?

Absolutely. :roll:  "Crazy drunk" (crunk) cannot be achieved by arriving sober. Now, one may achieve a low level of "crizzunk", by doing so, but surely not "crunk". 8)

Be prepared and take all the food you are going to need.  Ice, onions,and eggs were the first things to go last time I was down there during the cook off.  The truck to restock the Big Bend stores takes a few days to get there so Monday and Tuesday are lean also.
First Russian Collusion, then Mueller, then Obstruction, then illegal payment to Stormy Daniels, then tax returns. Now no formal vote on impeachment for a 30 min. phone call to Ukraine

No crime. No evidence, just more secret investigations

I posted a few photos from one of the '99 events at http://www.geocities.com/markellee/chilicookoff/index.htm a while back.  I don't know which one it was - south side of highway closest to Study Butte.  I was only there long enough to take some photos and then return to my very appreciated solitude on the Old Ore Road.

It looks like you spent your limited time wisely, however.  Lots of good looking gals!  

Good thing the time ran out against Army yesterday.  I couldn't believe that time out the Ags called with 22 seconds left. STUPID!

Indeed, nearly as stupid as the Army coach calling two running plays and letting the final seconds run off the clock without using his final time out.  That was the game loser for the Black Knights.
