Stuff to do

Stuff to know

  • Everything is pretty far apart from each other. Alpine – 30 mins away. Balmorhea – 1 hour, Prada – 30 mins, meeting place for dinner (star party night) – 1 hour, star party – 1.5 hours. So have that in your mind. Getting around Marfa – no time. BUT it is HOT AF out there y’all. It’s the desert in June.
  • The afternoon is a great time to take a nap. You will feel the call to sloooooow down in the heat, and that’s great. Take a nap. Go in AC and read, rest, recoup. We built in that down time for a reason.
  • Listen to your body. Stay ahead of the hydration. Just take it easy and drink water even if you are not thirsty.
  • Groceries – plan on bringing what you need. There are three stores (and they close around 8pm). There’s the Dollar General, Porter’s is a fairly low rent country grocery store (but it’s soooo much better than it used to be). And then there is the Get Go which is a small high-end grocery (organic stuff, – like a mini whole foods).
  • Nothing is open on Monday, or Sunday or Tuesday, or whenever they feel like it for that matter.
  • Food. It is expensive to eat out there and takes forever (what’s your hurry y’all). So know that going in. Plan when you wanna spend the $ and time eating out.
  • Frama!!! They have good coffee, ice cream, INTERNET and laundry. The nitro cold brew is BOMB!
  • INTERNET: It’s best at Frama and if you sit out front of the St. George. 
  • The light here!!! OMG, shoot shoot shoot photos. You will get home and see how magical this light is. Stop and just notice how it rests on the ground. It’s pretty damn stunning. 
  • At night, it’s DARK!!! Be mindful if you are walking at night – last year Brad and I kept running into a very serious Skunk.
