Just off Hwy 59 in East Texas, only 15 miles from Marshall and miles away from ordinary, lies the impressive little town of Jefferson, Texas. If you’ve never been, you’re not alone. I’ve lived in Texas for most of my life, and I’ve never even heard of Jefferson. Thanks to the good folks there, I was recently invited to join them for a couple of days to explore all this tiny town has to offer.
One of the obstacles to traveling I often hear is how difficult it can be to plan a trip and how choosing the destination can be the hardest part. If you desire to travel (or love it like I do), you probably have a bucket list of destinations and prioritizing them can be tricky. So, why not pair an epic event with your travels and let the event help you plan your next trip? By doing so, you focus less on the location and more on the experiences to be had there.
It’s been a while since I posted, and here’s why: I nearly died in Montana. No, it didn’t involve the usual suspects (bears, bison, climbing stairs) and yes, I’m being overly dramatic. But, I did get super sick, and I never saw it coming. In fact, I had an easy breezy flight into Billings, took the picture above, made my merry way to my rental car, reveled in the cooler temps, and then headed to MoAV, a hip little coffee shop tucked away downtown, before heading out to my first destination, a secluded ranch surrounded by miles of rolling hills, cattle, and fossils.
