This is not a post about Luckenbach

Luckenbach is a legendary spit of town with frequent mention by more than one famous Texas music icon but do you know where it is?  Even with the assistance of this map, do you really know?

The road to Luckenbach is curvy and unsystematic.  Of course you become accustomed to the path but my first time was an obligatory pilgrimage, in a we’re-this-close-so-we-should-go trip.  The journey is peaceful and mind-clearing.  Cold and dry in the hill country, I love the parched winter colors.  The air is clear, grass is Pantone 393 C  http://www.pantone.com/pages/paint/paintselector.aspx and river water is vividly green-blue.  It’s a great time to drive around, which is highly beneficial because Luckenbach is not easy to find.  It is in the middle of nowhere and the signs are lacking.  In fact, this is the only sign we found:

Attached to the fence on someone’s yard, it was probably installed after the 1,357th time directions were requested.  The road to Luckenbach includes lots of map folding and discussions about the last time you/someone in your party got lost.  Ultimately, we found it, had a beer, perused the grounds and headed back.  It is worth the drive as long as your hurry is minimal.  Play wildlife and/or roadkill bingo.  Be careful out there people.

Random and slightly disturbing fact: The average number of people airborne over the US any given hour is 61,000.
