A Passion for Big Bend Inspires a Life-Long Career Change
You won’t find two people more in love with the natural beauty and history surrounding Big Bend National Park than Greg and Valynda Henington. They both left their banking jobs – Greg in Houston and Valynda in Fort Davis – to settle in the last frontier of Terlingua, TX as co-owners and managers of Far Flung Outdoor Center (formerly known as Texas River Expeditions).
Far Flung Outdoor Center is the baby of Mark Evans, who started Texas River Expeditions (TRE) back in 1974, and Greg who joined him in 1986. In 2001, they purchased Far Flung Adventures, merged it with TRE, and founded what would become the widest, most complete offering of outdoor experiences available in West Texas: Far Flung Outdoor Center.
