Yet another rare opportunity while living in the middle of nowhere: Came in for a late breakfast at the GrubShack and the people coming and going were SO GOOD I couldn't leave. The best locals all seem to arrive just around closing time. No chance of rain in the near future so I didn't feel a need to get the next water tank in place right away. We all got pretty excited when a slicked up Airstream travel trailer pulled up with a giant sign that said Million Dollar Road Trip on the side. Even though they didn't have bags of money for us - we sat around for quite some time hearing about their story. http://www.milliondollarroadtrip.com/ Seems that my buddy Tom Michael from KRTS Marfa Public Radio suggested that they explore south county and beyond as part of their journey...including a visit to The Field Lab and a chance to meet Benita. Had a great time giving Walter and Tristan the full tour. Nice to be a very small part in their mission to help and inspire young entrepreneurs. Check out their website & Facebook page and keep an eye out for these guys when they come to a city near you. If you see their rig - say howdy and tell them Benita sent you. 74,92,47,0,B
