I am going next week from Kansas City down to Shreveport to visit my little brother. I am planning on turning left and heading along the gulf tp Pensacola and then up the BRP for an 8 day jaunt. But, those areas along the BRP have been getting a bit nippy at night and I am camping. So I am thinking of having a back up "turn right" plan instead and heading across southern Texas (never been south of Dallas) and on over the Grand Canyon (never been there either) before heading home. Any must sees or must avoids across southern Texas and over to the GC. I'd back roads it back home across northern Texas and up through Ok and Ks. That is part of a trip I've planned out previously but haven't embarked on yet.
