All -

Going out to Texas middle of next week for about a week. Flying into Lubbock and renting a P/U to drive south to Lamesa. Will be helping with a room addition - frame, roof, plumbing and wiring.

Should I have any free time, any suggestions on places/things to visit?

Hi Ted. Frankly, there isn't much to see in Lamesa and the surrounding area, IMO. :(
But, please do extend your stay and extra day or two and drive on over to Carlsbad New Mexico. The caverns are well worth the extra 100-150 mile drive. It will take you about half a day to walk down the cave entrance and across the bottom to the cafeteria and elevator back to the surface. As I recall, you will get to about 700 ft below ground. Do take your camera! The paths are will marked and made of asphalt. Tennis shoes are highly recommended. If you don't expect to get back to west Texas, a trip to Carlsbad is a must. :) :cool:
