As long as people have tried to tame the land, there has been the desire to harness the energy of West Texas: to maximize its rich resources and to enjoy the sense of community no matter the distance between neighbors. Distances that shrink at the crossroads where innovation meets determination. This crossroads creates opportunity— opportunity that can be described in a single concept: to Connect.
