Crane, TX – Crane County – Stamp #163 Collected

Finally vacation time and time to travel to West Texas and pick up some new counties! Our first 10K walk was on Friday, Oct 11.  It was in Crane which is just a little south of Odessa.  Our walk started at Stone’s Home Center which had this item for sale.
