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, and, yes, a creepy cemetery.
Got a beautiful spot picked out for you to camp & glamp and chill in the desert heat. Includes showers, out-house & what is arguably the most spectacular night sky in North America. Location is secret... for now. Looking at $10 per head per night. Trust me, it's worth it.
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.
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 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.
The sister cities of Presidio & Ojinaga have an amazing relationship. Cabeza de Vaca first visited in 1581. The Rio Grande and Rio Conchos come together here in this richly Spanish influenced city with authentic Mexican food and wonderful & welcoming people.
The region is filled with gems, all you have to do is explore. Ever hear about Contrabando, La Kiva, Ernst Tinaja or Fandango rock? Plan is to take you to some cool places. Llevarse bien pequeno vaquero.
2020 has been such a mess with the pandemic, murder hornets, hurricanes and wildfires. So your staff is monitoring the possible alien invasion closely 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.
Everyone like's to show off, so we're going to accommodate you. Join the 'Gambler Parade' on Saturday night as we strut our stuff through the streets of Terlingua finishing at our favorite watering hole.
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.
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.
Texas has a rich tradition of support for your 2nd Amendment rights. However, under NO circumstances may you take a firearm or ammunition across the border into Mexico. So we are planning on some unique shenanigans in Texas for those needing to bust some caps. Practica de tiro, cualquiera?
It's always free to rally with the Mexico Gambler. The campground host will hit you up for $10 a night. BBNP will grab $30 per car. BBRSP grabs $5 per person. Exchange rate is 21.77 peso's to a dollar.
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. Finish the evening with a parade and a movie under the stars.
Might be some of the toughest trails of the event, but we offer easier options. Even hear of 'The Road to Nowhere' up an extinct volcano? Thought we might give that a try. All US routes today.
