To prove we could do it ourselves we self-drove this trip. We did have contacts along the way; the Alamo B & B, Tacabuya Ranch and the Galveston Featherfest so we were not winging it quite as much as it suggests. The weather beat us (again) with the Whooping Cranes but there were many compensations. See pictures below. Move the pointer over the image to see the Play button.
