    the driving scene where travis remembers why he bought the land in paris texas (36m39s approx), was filmed in kramer junction, ca. https://www.google.com/maps/@34.9922464,-117.5415503,3a,75y,341.73h,92.93t,0r/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1saOp19vY0fyBF1-F6Rw-vlg!2e0!5s20111001T000000!7i13312!8i6656

    the eating mcdonalds in the back of the ranchero under the freeway scene (approx 1hr17m50sec) was filmed at the 5/14 fwy interchange in sylmar, ca. the freeway overpasses look different today because the original ones were destroyed in the 1994 northridge earthquake.https://www.google.com/maps/@34.3348054,-118.5083359,3a,75y,10.16h,97.12t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1siU6SUXrHXaEahCB6X5Ppdw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

    Was hoping to see the opening scene with Harry Dean Stanton walking in the desert. I’m pretty darn sure it’s not Texas, looks like Arizona.
