The first time we traveled from Houston to LA, the billboards
about the Thing piqued our curiosity. It's also a convenient
place to make a pit stop. The long, lonely stretches of I-10
from Kerville to LA have only a handful of cities. Most of
the time, you're looking out the window at desert or irrigated
The exhibits are in three metal buildings behind the Trading
Post. You go out through a door into the blistering heat of
the uncovered walkway (probably not much need for rain shelters).
The shade in the building is a welcome respite.
If you like old vehicles, some interesting ones are here,
and if you're not all that interested, the cheesy informational
placards are amusing.
Its warm inside and stuffy, but not oppressively so.
