The 46th Terlingua International Chili Championship will be held at Rancho Casi de los Chisos, west of Terlingua, Texas on Saturday November 3, 2012. Terlingua is in the Big Bend region of Texas. If you are having a hard time finding Rancho Casi on your map, it is at N29 18.663 degrees, and W 103 40.246 degrees on your GPS. If you don't have a GPS, it's about 8.9 miles west of the intersection of FM170 and SH 118 in Study Butte, Texas. And Study Butte is 77 miles south of Alpine, Texas. Be sure you get there. It doesn't matter whether you come by horseback, stagecoach, unicorn, hot air balloon, motorcycle, jeep, pickup truck, trailer, bicycle, dune buggy or motorhome. You just won't want to miss it. Here's some folks who made it the last couple of years.
Now that you've been here, it's time to look up Terlingua on your map. It may not be at the end of the world, but you can see it from here. It's actually only 151 miles to the nearest WalMart. (Fort Stockton, TX)
We would like to see you, but because of the distance, and lack of amenities, it may not be appropriate for children.
Oh yes, if you are still having trouble finding Terlingua, here's a link to MapQuest. Show me the map
