Sampled June 19-22, 2014
I added this trip onto one of my many Lake Fork fishing trips so I had to pick up Scott at the Amtrack station in Mineola at 5:15 on Thursday, June 19. The train was 45 minutes late, but it was just a short trip down the highway to our base in Tyler for the next 3 nights. That required a bit more driving than moving around, but it also meant I did not have to load and unload my fishing stuff multiple times. We carried around a cooler for leftovers and stored them in the mini-fridge overnight. I think we each came home with about 5 pounds of meat.
Scott's goal is to try to eat at all 50 of the recent Texas Monthly picks. Mine is less ambitious, I just want to eat a lot of good BBQ and try every spot we come across on our travels.
