Where will you be May 14-16, 2021? Why not join us on the second annual Gambler 500 Mexico in Terlingua, Texas? Te veo alli, amigo. Follow us on FaceBook using the link below.
The 'Gambler Mexico' is a joint venture between two great houses, 'Gambler Florida' and 'LoneStar Gambler'. Together we overthrew the Iron Throne and have laid claim to the greatest Gambler territory in Westeros. Viva la revolucion.
Terlingua, Texas is base-camp for the 'Gambler 500 Mexico'. This charming, quirky desert town is full of character, music and west Texas hospitality. Enjoy underground bars, guitars on the porch, even a creepy cemetery.
Got a beautiful spot picked out for you to camp & glamp and chill in the desert heat- Big Bend Resort & Adventures. Showers, outhouse, restaurant, convenience store and gas all on-site. Tent camping is $30 per person for the weekend with RV sites & motel rooms available. 29.3307, -103.5327. Meow!
A handful of hoopties will be chosen to attempt the most rugged and spectacular route of the rally, the climb up Christmas Mountain. Guaranteed to be one of the highlights of the journey, the views are breathtaking.
The trails in the BBNP are challenging and spectacular. The 'Old Ore Road' is 26 miles of twists and turns passing tinaja and desert springs. The scenery is like nothing to be found anywhere else in the hemisphere.
The Big Bend region is remote and far from just about anywhere. The reward for venturing to the area is spectacular scenery. From lowland deserts to pinon and Juniper tree covered mountains in the Chisos. The solitude will give you an amazing experience with breathtaking vistas and lifelong memories. Hermosa.
Some of the most challenging terrain comes on the third day of the rally. We enter the BBRSP attempting the 'Road to Nowhere'. This takes us up to the top of what looks like an ancient asteroid impact crater with stunning views and steep drop-offs. Only those with big huevos need attempt.
Everyone like's to show off, so we're going to accommodate you. Join the 'Gambler Parade' on Friday night as we strut our stuff through the streets of Terlingua finishing at our favorite watering hole.
2020 was such a mess with the pandemic, murder hornets, hurricanes, politics, meteors & wildfires. Staff is closely monitoring the possible alien invasion and promise to keep you safe from little green men. I have it on good authority that we are on the protected roles and not under threat of subjugation.
How much? The rally is free. The campground host will hit you up for $30. BBNP will grab $30 per car. BBRSP grabs $5 per person. Both parks are OPTIONAL. Exchange rate is 20 peso's to a dollar.
Going into Mexico is an OPTION offered on this journey. A valid passport or card is mandatory, plus you'll need your vehicle registration. Mexican auto insurance is HIGHLY recommended, and you'll need a FMM form (no sweat). Check the link for details, hombre.
Even in one of the most remote & beautiful places in the world you can still find rubbish left behind. That's no bueno. In 2020 we recovered over two tons of trash from the desert. In 2021 we will do even better. Support the Son's and join the 501C3 non-profit gang to make the planet a better, cleaner place.
The Big Bend region is remote, beautiful and spectacular. Terlingua is a wonderful place to visit and take home memories. Get a head start on your adventure by checking the following link.
Options to drive in both Mexico/US or Texas only. The Mexican route is amazing and adventurous. The US route is scenic and explores the wonders of the region.
This is the gem of this event not to be missed- The 'Old Ore Road' and 'Glenn Springs Road', all Texas based. But we have easier options for the tourists.
Might be some of the toughest trails of the event. Ever hear of 'The Road to Nowhere' up an extinct volcano? Thought we might give that a try. Tourist routes available as well.
