LUBBOCK IS ONLY 4-41/2 HOURS FROM HERE IN RUIDOSO -ALTO.
THE LAST TME UH PLAYED TT THE MRS AND I WENT TO THE GAME.
MIGHT HAVE TO GO IF A BUNCH OF YOU ARE GOING. WOULD LIKE
TO VISITE . THATS SEVEN MONTHS.


#2

I am still contemplating. Stay tuned!


(Mark Ross) #3

Grayfox, I live in Flagstaff Arizona and that puts me around 8 hours or so away. I am considering as well.


#4

I’ll be there!


(Marcus) #5

My wife is a Tech grad so we are probably going.


#6

Your four hours closer than me here in Katy, Texas.


#7

You can get there in 7.5 hours from Katy. 8 hours is easy.


#8

I’m going. First time to Lubbock.


#9

We are going from San Antonio

I’ve been to Lubbock - are there any redeeming qualities in Lubbock that would make it a place to stop after 20 years? I’d say NO, however watching the COOGS beat TT would be worth it.

Seriously, I remember a grain elevator being the largest most noticeable structure in Lubbock.

Haha. Good one

THERE ARE A LOT OF TT ALUMS HERE IN RUIDOSO . MOST ARE VERY
NICE WHEN THEY SEE MY UH HAT. THERE ARE A LOT OF TT BANNERS
HANGING MY HOMES HERE.

Yes, there is a sign on the outskirts of town that says “you are now leaving Lubbock”


#14

I haven’t driven to Lubbock in many years and after looking at google maps, I see you are correct. I know Highway 6 by-passes many of the small towns now, but I didn’t think it would make such a huge difference.

Chances of me going to the game just went up significantly.

I would say the best thing about Lubbock Texas is being close to the roots of:

  1. Waylon Jennings (close enough to Lubbock)
  2. Buddy Holly
  3. Mac Davis https://youtu.be/qv0LOTnH_Cw

It’s really not that bad of a drive - I kind of enjoy it when the traffic is light. I take 6 up to Hearne, then cut across to Temple and pick up 36, and follow that up to Abilene. Lots of time to savor a win on the way back. :slightly_smiling_face:
