One Thing I’ll Never Be Able to Check Off My Travel To-Do List

RIP Big Tex.

One of my travel bucket list items was to go to the Texas State Fair and see Big Tex.  Big Tex wore size 70 boots, a 75 gallon hat, a size 100 180/181 shirt and 284W/185L XXXXXL pair of Dickies jeans, and even had his own Wikipedia Page.

Say goodbye to a legend.  Texas has vowed to rebuild.
