    Re: TX Rally...all info in one thread, schedule included

    I started looking for my fire tote yesterday and I think I left it at the ranch! Crud. Gotta look harder, especially for my charcoal chimney. Haven't been in the attic yet, but I have a sinking feeling...we usually cook over coals. Also means I have no fire starters I made :( Good thing I can make a fire anyway, but your starters are always welcome skeeker! We will need them in the morn from the looks of things.

    We planned to be going up to the ranch to work every weekend, especially once hunting season started and well, life and kiddos get in the way. But thinking that, our game tote, kitchen tote, possibly fire tote, etc. are all at the ranch! I am used to being packed that way so we could take off at a moments notice...toss it in the car and go. Also a good way to keep my stuff from girl scouts. I've lost too much equipment before this system.

    Edited: so we are decided...everyone brings their own utensils, etc. Sounds good. We are a small group anyway, so I am sure there is plenty to share.

    Um, I totally copied that idea from the first rally I attended <blush> but I am a girl scout leader of 7 years [;)] Thank you for the compliment!

    Re: TX Rally...all info in one thread, schedule included

    Just to let everyone know we have 7 families, 20 people confirmed. I like that. Nice, tight first rally.

    #48 - Indy, dh, ds 18 yo
    #49 - vacant (too small for anyone apparently)
    #50 - WendylouWho, dh, dd, dd's friend (maybe) both 11 yo
    #51 - Skeeter, wife, superman son 4yo
    #52 - Shfd739, wife,
    #53 - Txbum, wife
    #54 - Phoodieman, baby girl
    #55 - Jeffinsa, wife, dd 14 yo, ds 11 yo

    (I have names and some are in sigs, but it's not my place to go putting them all up there for those who like their privacy)

    I am getting excited! And now frantically searching for some extra camping gear as I am finding most is at the ranch! Darn. We are even down fishing poles (that kids can use like zebco's, otherwise, AFAIAC, dh has TOO MANY!!!) and camping chairs! Guess I now need to work on double sets of everything for moments like this.

    Re: TX Rally...all info in one thread, schedule included

    Wendy if needed I've got a spare charcoal chimney, maybe a couple of hunting chairs, not loungers but they work. Also plenty of kids poles as my boys do fish. Let us all know what you lack and I'm sure we can pool things together and come up with what you need!

    What he said. We have extra chairs and what not so if you're needing something we can help also.

    Are we still doing a pot luck meal for the group?

    Thank you guys! That really helps my stress levels, lol.

    YES! Potluck is still on! Bring what you will. I am changing my mind on the something sweet (not much of a baker) and thinking of beans, broccoli salad and oh, something else I said earlier that I can't recall, oh bratwurst! I was thinking venison, but we will arrive late and that has to be low and slow.

    Re: TX Rally...all info in one thread, schedule included

    vagov...borrow away! No mind at all [;)]


    WOW, situation has really changed. Our friends down the street offered us their Dutchman (?) PUP for the rally! Also, dd is staying at a friend's to go to a last minute girl scout event (um, I failed to mention. oops). So it might be just me and dh or we might bring our son and a friend. It's up in the air.

    And thanks for all the kinds offers, we are drowning in tents here, 4 maybe? 2 large, 1 med, 1 small one. I just had everything so organized for tent camping that we just took our totes with our PUP not thinking we might just decide to up and tent camp or something, so in Comanche they stayed. Thankfully, with dd not going, we are good on poles, she just can't cast spinning reels or such, only zebco's so those are at the ranch for the pond. We are good on bedding and I am even now washing the coleman sleeping bags from my childhood.

    But, Txbum, I might take you up on the dutch oven offer. Let me see. I can do without the piñata and cuervo [;)]

    Still looking for my fire tote.

    OH, and we might/will need guidance backing up a PUP at night in a camping space. Marlin is good with boats, but this is a different animal and his driver's side has no mirror (don't ask, I am sure it was not me). We've only ever taken our other PUP to Comanche and we made that drive thru (though he backed it up in the neighborhood.

    No offense whatsoever, but I wouldn't trust a bathroom in discount tire [LOL] not to say there aren't good people there, but a high turnover rate within our area typically leads to guys who really don't care much about their quality of work.

    This is true, I will gladly admit that their warranty and prices a far beyond what most other places can do.

    Everyone, rain was light so looks like it going to be good weather. Rain estimates were really lowered for today. Winds should help dry things out. Txbum
