It looks like, on the spur of the moment, I’ll be going to the NASA West Texas State meet in Hereford, TX next weekend.
I’ve never been to West Texas (any farther west than the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo, actually) and I’m pretty excited. I actually entertained West Texas A&M for grad school, so I’ll be able to tour the campus, but other than that I don’t have any plans.
Anyone live in the area and want to meet up after the meet, or does anyone know of anything to do? I’m thinking strip clubs, bars, roadside attractions.
I live about 85 miles southeast of Canyon (WTAMU). Hereford is a little bit northwest of there. I actually lived in Hereford back in my cowboy days.
It smells like cowshit all the time there because there are so many feedlots in and around the town.
You have to go to Amarillo to get to the strip clubs, and there are a few - but not very good. Roadside attractions? Just dead animals and buzzards. Amarillo has some pretty good bars I am told.
Bone up on your spanish if you want to interact with the locals in Hereford. They are not really that local, and probably not that legal if you know what I am saying.
