    Anyone unfamiliar with Texas geography, and not wanting to open Google Earth....Del Rio is pretty isolated.
    You will be a bridge crossing from Mexico, an hour from an Indian casino and about 2.5 hours from civilization (or at least San Antonio).

    Can't say I know much about the paper or the people there.

    Don't know anything of this stop, but "rebuild" seems quite the red flag.

    I know something about Del Rio. You are basically in Mexico and like Joe said, you are in a pretty isolated community. You aren't that far from Laredo and if you do well in Del Rio, you won't be there for long.

    A surprising amount of chain and local restaurants for its size. It's a convenient stopping place and is set up to handle travelers. Preps compete with San Antonio, and not too well.

    To get to Del Rio, you have to pass through Hondo.
