    Looking forward to meeting all of you guys! We made our reservations!

    Lyz, do you need a reservation number for the "scout person"?

    We just bought our PUP about 3 weeks ago and we are looking forward to more opportunities to use it.

    Others with teens going?

    Texas_Laws,
    Great!!! You will have a fantastic time. Have you seen the pics from our last rally? Here's a link: http://good-times.webshots.com/album/567732425tKRFbN

    Yes, please PM me the following:
    your reservation number
    day of arrival
    cell phone number
    name reservation is made under

    So far we are the only ones with teens. I have a 14 y/o girl and 10 y/o boy. There are other kids, but younger. But it all works out great.

    I see you're in aerospace. Are you in the Clear Lake area? We're in League City.

    Hi Lyz,

    Yep, I live in Clear Lake. Great pics! I haven't been to Inks Lake since I was a teen.

    I am curious about the mix of folks. I have retired parents whom we went in halfsies with on the popup. We have been encouraging them to join a camping club and make good use of the popup. We may drag them along if there will be other retirees there...

    Absolutely! Our last rally had a nice mix...a few retired folks, a few with young kids, some grandkids, us with our teen and 10 y/o.

    Keep in mind that it will be HOT. If your folks are the type that will sit in the water or even tube the river then they will have a great time. It will probably be too hot to spend the day hours sitting around at the campsite. That's why we always choose water campgrounds in summer...to escape the heat.

    Ya'll can check out the SETPUCC club. It's a nice group of folks in our area and your folks may be interested in joining (you too). I've joined but haven't camped with them yet. We camp so often that I usually have all of their dates already booked with our own trips. http://www.setpucc.org/main/

    We're going to Huntsville SP Nov. 14-16. That's a really nice place. If ya'll want to tag along, you are welcome to. Your folks would definately like that park.

    Oh yeah, my folks are water bugs. We are too. We have never attempted to camp with our kids when water is not involved. :)

    Thanks for the invite!

    Lyz and all the group.....Sorry I have not been here a lot but Glen has been in the hospital for about 2 weeks now and off and on for the past month. Been a very mental month! Took him to see our new grandson last week and it was great to see him smile. He missed treatment and most of the side effects are gone. He now wants to stop all together.....breaks my heart but it is not my body going through it...just me heart! He wants to take the pop-a-top out and either to Abilene State Park or Copper Breaks State Park. The fishing was awesome at Copper Breaks for me...lol...so he said I cant fish! He ain't right!!!<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Wink"> Lyz, Thank you so very much for the calls, and emails!! You are a GEM.....but then all of you are! TYVM for all the support,,,each and every one of you!<img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Smile">

    It's to long of a drive from Pennsylvania but the star party sounds really cool. Lyz, looks like you're doing a great job and this is sure to be a good time. I've added the rally to the event calendar.

    Lyz, I'm going to have to change our arrival date because our DS's scout camp starts on the 15th. We're going to arrive at the park on Wednesday the 10th instead of Friday 12th. My only concern is that the rest of the group winds up in the other loop. I'll call the reservation number tomorrow and see if I can change it. ReserveAmerica says there are still sites available. If my conf# changes I'll PM it to you.

    No problem Lori! However.....if you just keep your reservation and eat the one-day fee then we can still claim your site....something to think about.

    Happy New Year!

    It has been forever since I have logged in, but I hope all are doing well and I am looking forward to our June camping trip.

    Does anyone here play dominoes? Hubby and I love it (as do my parents who will likely come along). Would love to get together with others for some games..

    My mother tried to show me how to play one game and it was too confusing...involved lots of addition....

    However, I'd love to learn to play some EASY games...you know...the one dot connects to the one dot....

    Maybe we can have a table for experts and a table for the remedial players...

    Hi Laws,

    I love to play dominoes, only wish I were better at it. To be honest, Moon and 42 are ones I just haven't played much though.

    We scouted out Guadelupe River State Park yesterday. Nice quiet place with scenic river overlooks. We found sites are either "water only" or "water, electric". Dump station about 1/2 mile from camp sites, but no sewer at sites.
    The sites all seem a bit isolated from each other, ie, not adjacent, but with scrub trees in between. So am wondering how you all plan to get together.
    Have not made reservations yet, but may before long.
    BTW, due to drought, burn ban in effect, all is very brown & dry looking.

    Well, I'll just have to do the best I can. Hopefully everyone will have water/electric (I never thought to mention that). The goal is to be within walking distance of each other. We can schedule a dinner and hopefully the star show and anyone who wants to hang out together at other times can. Pray for rain!

    Pray for rain before we get there though. If not, I won't plan on roasting marshmallows! We reserved a water/electric site. Our arrival date is on Wednesday the 10th. Laws, we like dominoes. Our son always wants to play Mexican Train. We keep a set of Double 9s in the camper. <img src=../Images/icons/icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle alt="Shock">

    Lyz...
    Hopefully I'll know today if we're making this trip or not. I had to wait on my son's Boy Scout troop to get their schedule together. He may have a camping trip that weekend but I will be able to confirm today if we'll be at the rally.
