About Our Host
Kristen and Karyn – Kristen and her crazy mom Karyn were our hosts on our Lubbock, Texas adventure. Kristen would be starting college at Texas Tech University later that year and needed to get settled in. Besides that her crazy mom want to make sure that everything was safe for Kristen. They were great hosts and it was a road trip we will never forget.
Whew! On this adventure we learned that Lubbock loves its Texas Tech Raiders Football team! We spent a lot of time visiting Texas Tech University, which is home to the Red Raiders. We actually met the official Masked Raider, Texas Tech’s horse riding mascot. Very cool! The Red Raiders have been playing football since October 3, 1925. They have won eleven conference titles and have been to 31 bowl games, winning 5 of the last 7. They also have an excellent men’s and women’s basketball team. Having the opportunity to visit the stadium where they play such excellent football was too good to be true. We also learned that Texas Tech is home to the College Baseball Foundation, the Moody Planetarium, and the Museum of Texas Tech University. This was an awesome adventure! N & S
