The nice part about living in a small town is that when you don’t know what you’re doing, someone else does! ~ anon
Whitsett, population 150, is best known as being the setting for the 2008 horror film The Wild Man of the Navidad.
If you’re not from Texas, mostly likely you’ve never heard of Whitsett, TX. If you are from Texas, most likely you’ve never heard of Whitsett, TX . 😀
So, what’s at Whitsett? Well we are, along with 5 other gate guards and a whole bunch of service wagons, waiting for assignments.
Below is the view from the front door. We only have one door and it’s on the side, but I think, in an RV, that’s still considered the front door?
But there’s more to Whitsett than gate guarding. We took a trip to town today to find the post office and took a few pictures of the town along the way.
The lady at the post office, whose name I’m sorry to have forgotten, couldn’t have been nicer.
She said she used to read books and fall asleep until someone came in ringing the bell and waking her up. That was before Eagle Ford Shale. She hasn’t read a book in a year!
I loved it that they have anonymous mail. What is anonymous mail do you suppose? They have signs for it and bins of it. Maybe all post offices do, I don’t know. I didn’t ask because I thought it might be a government secret or something. 😀
A small town is a place where there’s no place to go where you shouldn’t go. ~ Burt Bacharack
To read the papers and to listen to the news… one would think the country is in terrible trouble. You do not get that impression when you travel the back roads and the small towns. They do care about their country and wish it well. ~Charles Kuralt
We couldn’t resist. We split a brisket sandwich and Heidi got a giant pickle, all for under $5. The decor in the tiny gas station/ convenience store/ deli was what we’ve become accustomed to down here. 😉
Possibly should have clarified that it was, indeed, beef brisket since I took this photo just across the street…
We couldn’t really find any town or J & B TACOS.
So just in case the question of what’s in Whitestt has been weighing on your mind, now you know!
