Distances in the Big Bend Region of Texas  

Honorable Member Admin

How far is that house?


"I was coming out of the Castolon country [in the Big Bend] several years ago, and a fellow waved me down a few miles south of Alpine, Texas, and wanted to know if I knew Polk Hinson. I told him I did. He wanted to know where Polk lived. I told him that he lived in the first house on the left, down the road. He thanked me and started to drive off. He stopped and said, "By the way, how far is it?" I said, "About a hundred miles."
