It’s a Texas-sized Summer Staycation!

From the Davis Mountains to San Angelo, Crockett to Kerrville and more, Chet and The Daytripper team are giving us the ultimate Texas tour of the summer. So fire up your grill, crack open a cold tasty beverage and settle in for the July 4th Daytripper marathon.
