Ok, so I know I'm no longer from Tx but just had to say hey! to Annick! I am from Carlsbad, NM so I was only about 2 hrs away. We used to go down to El Paso and shop the malls and and shopping centers. I miss the food so much! I would even settle for Tex-Mex at this point! Good thing I can cook! lol

I lived in Longview Tx about 6 yrs. My son was born there. Spent a lot of time in Midland/Odessa too. Oh and cant forget Lubbock. lol

We would occaisionally get visitors to the Carlsbad Caverns Nat'l Park (especially Europeans) who would tell us they had panic attacks and were so glad the trip between El Paso and Carlsbad was over. Too much of nothing for them to handle. I grew up in the shadow of the Guads and El Capitan (the highest mountain in TX) on a ranch so desolation is nothing new to me. Couldn't understand their fear until I moved to East Tx and saw how close everyone was to each other. lol
