    It is very slick and the farmer who actually owns the land keeps the path of about 100 yards mowed. The big set of glasses mark the site and they you walk about 100 yards to the actual location where the markers are located. The pilot's name was just added within the last 5 years or so. There is also a nice marker at the Surf Ballroom in town where his last actual concert was held.

    That one is a little hard for my small head to get around.

    Because somebody either knew him, or knew of his favorite beverage. This type of tribute is visible in the Terlingua and the Lajitas and other small cemetaries here in far southwest Texas, as well as in many other memorial type locations.

    I did not know that. Very interesting. Is there some record of correlation between Holly and Old Style?

    It really is a nice tribute. The items left were just left by fans and visitors. And it was not all that easy to find. But worth the effort.
