    Very jealous, Shun - would love to do that trip
    ...Well it sure makes you wonder the things that some people will say. They can see black and white but they don't seem to notice the grey...

    Thanks! I admire any Eagles fan, especially one who explores life a bit further

    I took Shun's and Soda's suggestions and visited Don's hometown of Linden this past Saturday. I live about 2 hours west of there. Thanks to you both for your trip suggestions and pictures, we were able to see all the sites you mentioned. We did run out of time to visit Caddo Lake properly, will have to go back there. But the coolest thing was that when we were entering the city limits of Linden "Boys Of Summer" came on the radio, we took that as a really good sign!!

    Does Linden have anything about Don on its welcome sign, like "Birthplace of Don Henley"? The plaque on the courthouse is nice.

    Only that billboard that said, "Welcome to Cass County, Home of Don Henley" which was put up for the Cass County album. That's the only thing that tells you that was Don's hometown. Well actually the county Don is from. You will see that billboard before you need into the town. That billboard is on the main highway while the city is off the highway, but maybe a 2 minute drive. Its by the Shell gas station(I might got that gas station wrong). Down the street from Dairy Queen and Don's favorite place to eat. Don's old school is like 6 miles from Linden.

    There's another one, but I didn't see that one, and I forgot where that one is.

    Thank you, Shun. Don Henley's favorite place to eat is located in a gas station?! Don't order the sushi, Don!

    Yep. The locals even told me that. So that's not a rumor. Gas station restaurant food can actually be pretty good.
