TEXAS RIVER MUSIC WITH
BUTCH HANCOCK and JIMMIE DALE GILMORE
On October 22-24, 2021 Butch and Jimmie Dale will launch on an unforgettable excursion down the Rio Grande, down one of the spectacular river canyons the Rio Grande is famous for. Which canyon we choose to run is dependent on water level and local conditions. Our goal is to provide an enjoyable river experience without having to rush. We will make camp in a comfortable location with outstanding scenery and which offers opportunities to hike, swim, paddle, or just lounge around camp.
Like many visitors to Big Bend, Butch was drawn to the unparalleled beauty and mystery of the legendary Rio Grande. Butch soon invited his friend from The Texas Flatlanders, Jimmie Dale Gilmore to join in the fun and then Jimmie Dale was hooked. Both Jimmie Dale and Butch performed on many editions of Texas River Music, separately and together. Butch is a certified river guide and will row his own boat. After dinner, around the campfire, Jimmie and Butch will choose from their extensive repertoire.
Cost for this trip is $900 per person. Meals are fresh and delicious, accommodation can be made for any food preference or restriction. We will meet at the offices of Big Bend Boating at 8;30 am on Friday, October 29, 2021, then load into our vehicle to transport guests to river’s edge. We encourage guests to meet us the afternoon/evening before for orientation and to pick up a waterproof duffel. Camping is available on site at no additional charge; we are happy to help arrange overnight accommodations nearby before and after the river trip.
We have decided to not enable on-line reservations as this is a very special and personal trip, and we want to make sure that everyone is fully informed about what it is all about. For further information and to book, call Mike Davidson/Go Big Bend at 432-386-5635, firstname.lastname@example.org
