Vacation 2022 Countdown: 14 days to Haunted Texas Road Trip!

I am really looking forward to this trip! It’s going to be a lot of driving, but there will be plenty of stops on the way once we get to El Paso and start the journey there. It’s about 12 hours to El Paso if we follow the route on the map, but we’re not. We’re going straight to El Paso and then, we’ll follow the map. I plan to find the fastest route there. 🙂

My son. Joe, had originally planned to only live stream us checking out haunted sites but now, he has the bright idea of doing a kind of Subathon for his Twitch channel where he will livestream for so many minutes for each new subscriber he gets. His channel is:

https://www.twitch.tv/grimcommando95

He’s been streaming for two years now, and I’m so glad he’s stuck with it despite how slow it’s been to build up followers. It is an adult only stream as he curses, drinks(at times) and is just himself. He also streams games he plays with others and is always happy to play with someone new. He likes to try out new games too.

We’re going to be taking turns driving, and we’ll set up the phone as best we can to stream if/when it comes time to stream our actual traveling.

I’ll be posting pictures myself on a daily basis. I’m going to try to embed video as well, if I can figure out how. I’ll be focusing mainly on what we see at the haunted sites, if anything.

Vacation 2022 Countdown: 21 days to Texas Haunted Roadtrip

How haunted it’s actually going to be is anyone’s guess!

Joe is all ready to stream our trip, and his followers are quite excited! I’ll be posting here with pictures as well!

I’ve already booked our first hotel. We’ll be staying in motels and hotels along the way so we can sleep for a few hours before checking out the haunted sites.

If you have any suggestions for where we should go, we’re going to be traveling from El Paso down to San Antonio and then on down to Galveston where we hope to go on a tour of The Hotel Galvez.

In El Paso, we’ll be trying to get a glimpse of La Llorona. She’s a grief stricken guilt ridden woman who drowned her own children to please a man, was rejected for doing so by same man and ended up drowning herself.

In Marfa, we’ll try to see The Marfa Lights. These are ghost lights seen from a bridge or something. Will be interesting.

In Seguin there’s a ghost at Woman Hollering Creek: She’s like the El Paso ghost.

In San Antonio, we hope to see The Saintly School Children. Apparently a bus full of school kids from a local Catholic school stalled on some train tracks while a train was coming. Everyone but the nun in charge was killed. It’s said if anyone stops on the tracks, the kids will push their vehicle off the tracks.

Goliad has Presidio La Bahia. This is a famous battle ground here in Texas and is said to be full of ghosts.

We end in Galveston at the Hotel Galvez.

We don’t actually end there. We’re picking Em up and circling around to Dallas so Joe and Em can visit some friends and so we can check out several hotels in the area.

As I said, if you live along this route and want us to check out some of your local hotspots for the paranormal, feel free to leave suggestions in the comments below.

Vacation 2022 Countdown: Texas Haunted Roadtrip

My son and I are taking most of my vacation this year together with Em, his lovely girlfriend, joining us for the last couple of days.

I like sharing my trips with people, makes it more fun that way, and Joe, my son, wanted something new for his stream on Twitch. We also both wanted to do a Texas Haunted Road Trip. It made sense to turn my vacation time into a road trip he’ll be streaming live, and I’ll take pictures and post some videos for you all to enjoy as well.

There are several different maps posted over the years pointing out haunted places in Texas to visit, We both agree to begin in El Paso since it’s the farthest point out from where we live. This is the map I’m looking at:

We’re planning on heading along the lower portion of the map so we end up back in Lufkin in time to pick up Em before heading up to Dallas. We’ll be stopping at different places along the way. If you live anywhere along the route or within like 50 miles of it, and you know some places said to be haunted, let me know in the comments below. We’ll make time to hit them up and give you credit for sending us that way whatever happens. 🙂

I am excited to try this. I enjoy new places and driving so it’s a win win with me. Cherry on top is doing this with my son and his GF. My vacation starts on 3 October, a Monday and goes for an entire week – plenty of time for rest breaks during the day and ghost hunting at night!
