pang...

I guess I have finally lived here long enough now.  Since moving to the area almost nine years ago, I felt a pang of nestalgia today.  After being sold recently, the building formerly known as H20TOGO has been dozed to the ground.  89,96,66,0,B

So now where do people get H2O?

They dozed my old junior high school building to the ground not long ago. Like I heard someone say once it's like they're going behind me an eraser.

H2OTOGO was kind of a novelty operation. They did a pretty good business with off gridders who had no other option but they were a little pricey - $6.00 for a 5 gallon bottle + deposit. Most people in Terlingua have city water right from their facet. The local hardware store took over the bottled water operation.

pretty narrow and vulnerable market... as other businesses like the hardware store could then stock it... but the price seems to be about what is charged in the east at the local Walmart..

My old high school has been converted into a multi-use building with a library, county offices and a gym for pickleball... and the old cafeteria a meeting room for seniors and other events.

It's all in the name. They should have called their business..H20.ON..the go. To Go...means exactly what it says..to go. Bye bye. Adios. Nevertheless still sad for those of you even though I really don't know anyone of you or the place. But then' I guess even fb friends eventually have a heart for their fb friends no matter where.

Should be cheaper to purchase a vacant lot - without an existing building that must be bulldozed out of the way - and the building remains gotten rid of. Lot's of failed (non-maintained) business ventures on 118 - between Alpine & Study Butte - and their removal does improve this scenic drive view!
