Trish and I go to flea markets, antique malls and anything else that is open and under the sun on the weekends. As I’ve already mentioned the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex is scattered with this type of opportunity. It’s also ‘kill two birds with one stone’ type of travel days of discovery because along the freeways are peppered with off ramps leading off to historic towns and sights. You will need a vehicle to get around here, the distances are huge, but the speed limit on most Texas highways is 75 mph, there are great radio stations playing nothing but Texas music, and the time passes quickly because the scenery is sublime. I try and stop as often as I can to pick up some conversation, which Texans offer easily…the BBQ and knick knacks are great too….try the pie if you can.
