    Swimming in the Rio Grande in Big Bend national park, Texas

    My friend @Daisy and I stop in Big Bend national park on our way west. The highlight was swimming in the Rio Grande river in the Boquillas Canyon; it's a nice swim if you're in the area.

    My guide to Austin, Texas

    Austin Texas is another one of those cities I never thought I would have spent as much time in as I have, but overall I'm glad I did. It's a great town overall that's easy to find work in, making it a great place to save up money between travels. Unfortunately there's not a lot of punks or other...

    Dealey Plaza-Dallas, Texas

    Had ALWAYS wanted to visit this spot where such a great man was murdered. I "slept" in a church doorway that night and panhandled EXACTLY enough money to get into the depository exhibit the next day. Deeply moving.
