Round Rock!

In case you missed it, Round Rock premiered on KLRU last night and we threw a party in Round Rock to celebrate! Thanks so much to everyone who came out…we had a blast. It’s always great to hang out with you…our fans!

So, Round Rock isn’t called the “Sports Capital of Texas” for nothing.  Especially if you can make a sport out of eating, learning about history, or beekeeping. Got you curious…Be sure to tune into you local PBS station to watch.

You can also catch the show online. Check out our Round Rock episode page for the link.

Daytripper BBQ Bus Tour Photos

We had a great time on our BBQ Bus tour! Lots of full stomachs and happy faces along the way…not to mention the food comas. Huge thanks to Hwy 29 BBQ, Cooper’s BBQ, Opie’s BBQ and the Bluebonnet Cafe for great food and Texas hospitality.

Keep an eye on our website for future tours. The next one up is our Texas Distillery Tour on May 9. Details and tickets are available at the Daytripper General Store.

The Daytripper Distillery Tour

It’s time to hit the road on another Daytripper Bus Tour! This time we head west of Austin to visit some the best and newest distilleries. Texas Spirits is on the rise in popularity so join us as we learn about the process of making and sample great Rum, Bourbon and Vodka. Along the way we will have lunch at a small brew-pub as well and snag some Texas style beef jerky.

You won’t want to miss this trip. Please note, you must be 21 to come on this trip. We will be leaving from and returning to Georgetown. For more information, visit the Daytripper General Store.

Looking forward to seeing y’all on the bus!

 

Season 6 – Kingsville

If the worth of a Tex-ified kingdom were valued in cattle, oil, and land, then the King Ranch is the most powerful kingdom our state has ever seen.  Dating back to the 1800′s, this ranch is almost as legendary as the Lone Star State itself.  Exploring the ranch and the nearby town of Kingsville makes for a really fun adventure!

Be sure to tune into you local PBS station to watch.

Trippin’ with Best Western

We’re gonna take a moment here to REALLY thank one of our awesome new sponsors.  If you’ve been watching Season 6, you know that Best Western Hotels of Texas recently teamed up with us and it couldn’t be a better fit.  As you know, we LOVE traveling to small towns, and there’s a Best Western in almost every one.  In fact, there are 231 Best Westerns across the Lone Star State.  That’s a BUNCH!

For Seasons 1-5, we stayed at a number of Best Western Hotels, but now we get to stay at one on every shoot.  The free wi-fi is always awesome, and our new ritual is to have our breakfast meeting over their free breakfast buffet.  Because what’s a good night’s sleep if you don’t have a good breakfast to go along with it?

So, as you plan your trips, vacations, spring breaks or other roaming across Texas, be sure to include Best Western in those plans.  We truly appreciate our sponsors, and literally wouldn’t have a show without them.  Thank you Best Western.

Here’s the spot we made for them.

Here’s us at our breakfast meeting in Schulenburg.

Season 6 – Grapevine

In case you missed it, we celebrated Christmas in October!! Say what?!? Actually, we went to Grapevine on the Daytripper. Known as the Christmas Capital of Texas, we catch the spirt of the season. All along main street, in a local winery, and in the ice sculptures and snow hills of a local resort. We eat some Chili to stay warm, and then catch a train bound for the North Pole.  Let’s his the road and get in the Christmas spirit early.

Season 6 – Port Lavaca

In case you missed it, we went to “Port Lavaca” on the Daytripper.  Along the water’s edge of Matagorda Bay, we explore the food and history of this coastal town.  From La Salle’s landing spot, to old Indianola, to a cast-iron lighthouse in a wildlife refuge.  Will we catch enough to eat along the way?  You’ll have to wait and see.  Let’s hit the road.

Season 6 – Marble Falls

In case you missed it, we headed to Marble Falls! It’s more than just hill country, this town is art country with art on main street and in the nearby Pogue Foundry.  It’s adventure country on an ATV in the dirt, a SUP board on the water, and a hang glider in the sky.  Which takes us even higher than the pie.  Let’s hit the road.
