The two RV Gypsies
drove their RV through El Paso, Ft. Hancock & Anthony
on their way to Fort Stockton, Texas.
September 15, 2022

Fort Hancock is an unincorporated community and census-designated place (CDP) in Hudspeth County, Texas, United States. It is situated on the Mexico–United States border, across from El Porvenir, Chihuahua. The Fort Hancock–El Porvenir International Bridge connects the two communities, and the Fort Hancock Port of Entry is located on the Texas side.

Texas State Highway 20 and the Union Pacific Railroad run through the town.

Below: In El Paso, Texas, along the border of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, a monumental X stands tall and proud. Standing taller than the Statue of Liberty, the brilliant red sculpture captures attention on both sides of the border. Its official name is “Monumento a la Mexicanidad” (Monument to the Mexican People). But residents know it simply as “La Equis” or “The X.”

But the meaning behind La Equis has confused many people. Some have speculated that it is part of a series of letters across the border spelling “Mexico.” Others claim that the red paint represents the blood spilled in the drug cartel wars that ravaged towns like Juárez.

Completed in 2013, La Equis is the work of Enrique Carbajal González, a monumental sculptor commonly known as Sebastián. Many other cities around the world house Sebastián’s sculptures, including Cabeza de Caballo in México City, and Awaiting the Mariner in Dublin, Ireland.

Again, the two RV Gypsies were in their big RV, so did not detour to get closer to the big red X. It is not always easy to maneuver or park a big RV in crowded cities. Karen Duquette was able to capture a quick photo out of the window of the moving RV.

Anthony is an incorporated town in El Paso County, Texas. It is the first town encountered in Texas when traveling eastbound on Interstate 10 from New Mexico. But on this date, the two RV Gypsies were traveling westbound. Anthony was laid out around 1881 when the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway was extended to that point. There are several parks and a riverwalk in the area, but the two RV Gypsies were just passing through in their big RV and could not stop.
