Ride with Me through Far West Texas

A few weeks ago, I was in Southeast New Mexico when it was time to head home to Texas. I turned my Dodge Magnum south on Hwy 285 toward Pecos and Fort Stockton to catch Interstate 10. Once on I-10, I headed east for many hours on cruise control with a posted speed limit of 80 mph. Overall, the trip takes about nine hours, but you get the gist in just over four minutes.


The video shows some of the country in far West Texas, an area most people aren’t familiar with. It starts in New Mexico, moves to I-10 at Fort Stockton, Texas, then several clips from near Ozona, Texas.

I used a different encoding on this video than the previous ones, testing the quality and the ability for everyone to view them easily. The first videos were uploaded to YouTube, but since then, that service had been flaky.

I then converted them to mpg format, which requires the Quick Time browser plugin to play. This is the first encoded to .wmv.

If you have issues, please let me know.
