🎵The stars at night are big and bright (clap, clap, clap, clap) deep in the heart of Texas🎵

Kendall has LEFT his home in Fort Worth to live on the road in a refurbished school bus (called a skoolie) and his first stop is in the little-known town of Terlingua, Texas. While trying not to melt in the 94 degree heat, he explains the history of this town, which include some thermometer-raising facts.

Drink of the episode: The Old Gringo



Repasado Tequila (homemade here in Terlingua)
