The planned trip to Inks Lake SP was rained out last weekend. 4" on Friday night alone, so we camped in the driveway.

Rain in these parts is a real good thing, so we took it in stride and made reservations on Lake LBJ in Marble Falls, TX. for next weekend...

We will be going to starved rock state park Illinois in a week to spend a week in what might be the last trip of the season.

Might do a state park end of this month, but next trip out will be Ft. Myers Beach, FL, last week of March 2013.

well, I really screwed up this trip !

1st - I didn't realize that this is a long weekend (another postal service workers day off on Monday) so when we got to Lake Somerville SP we were disappointed to see that the sites we'd checked out on Wednesday were occupied - and then, to top it off, the whole park was reserved (didn't realize SPs could take reservations - thought only ya couldn't reserve individual sites)

the gal checked the "other" location and said there were some sites available but I didn't want left-overs so I decided to head on home (a little over 2 hours driving)

2nd - we got only a couple of miles out of the park when a fellow in a pickup truck passed us and flagged us to a stop - said one of the tires on the right side was shreading - sure enough, it was ! So, got that changed and decided to head into Brenham and get 4 new tires at Discount Tire - did that, had lunch there then drove on home

so, camping trip #2, in the new tt with the new truck, turned out to be a big pile of #2 (tho blowing the tire might have been a blessing - now have 4 new ones, the quality of which I'm confident.....Bill

Headed out for the Texas coast around noon today with my 10 year old, the rest of my clan should be here in about 20 minutes. Camp is all set up, I have a cold one in my hand and the weather is beautiful. Cheers!

Southern Tip of Texas, South Padre Island. As you can see the park is deserted, maybe at 20 % capacity. Highs are in the 80's lows in the 70's. The beer is on ice Bill, come on down!
