The film “254” is about the ultimate Texas road trip, one that lasts 15 years, stops in all 254 counties and covers the better part of 260,000 plus square miles. I’m not from Texas but my mother is San Antonio born and bred. I lived in Austin for a spell in the 90’s. I don’t want to boast but I know more about Texas than most Texans ever will. But it wasn’t handed to me – I earned it – through every mile. Every planned and unplanned encounter with the people, places, and things that make this the best (should be) nation in the world. What did I get out of it? More than bragging rights, I got an experience that can never be duplicated or replaced.
