I had to make deliveries in Corpus Christi last night

 If you've never been there, you really don't need to make plans to go.

Corpus is like your trashy aunt and no matter where she goes or what she wears, trash will always show through.

AND I had to spend an extra half hour there in the port area because they're completely redoing the highway and surface roads for the new bridge over the Laguna Madre because of detours and closed ramps.

This tells you everything you need to know about Corpus in one sign.....

And that wasn't even in a bad part of town.


  1. 30 min doesn't introduce you to Corpus. it is very conservative, very religious, and highly Hispanic. a good place to live.

    1. I lived and worked in Port Aransas for 15 years. I know Corpus.

    2. Doesn't sound like it. The new bridge over the ship channel doesn't go anywhere near the Laguna Madre.

    3. Yup
      Glaring mistake. Folks around here would say, It crosses the Nueces river, or the back bay.

  2. I drove around that part north of the new bridge right next to the water. It was weird how much of it was gone, scrapped down to the ground. That was almost a year ago now.

    Corpus is an interesting place. I've always had fun looking around down there. But it never struck me as particularly high brow, even along the coast road with the nicer houses.
