: It's a long ways simply to get to the HIGHWAY to Big Bend (from Interstate 10). Then it's ANOTHER few hours south to the park! Bring some CDs, and earplugs won't hurt either! (after hours of road noise, you'll be glad you did).
come on, its not that much driving. after the first few hours your mind just gets used to it. besides, who wouldnt want to be driving through some of the most intersting habitats in the world?
