    I am pulling the popup to Austin on Tuesday for a three night stay. I will be attending the Texas Computer Educators Association 2012 Conference. Rather than stick my school with a $255 hotel bill, I am turning it into a camping trip. This will be my first 3- nighter. I know... I am staying at one of those luxury RV resorts. But... come on all you boondockers...This is a business trip that I am taking advantage of to spend time in the popup as a bonus. I don't have a toilet or anything, so I need the bath house anyway.

    I am also excited because I am in a contest to win some technology equipment from my school during the conference. You can help a fellow portal buddy out by clicking on my link and voting for my video. http://www.dataprojections.com/AV_Solutions/TCEA_2012/Video_List/Default.asp?id=100

    By the way... Some of my buddies from San Antonio who will be staying in fancy hotels, want to come by and check out my popup. I can't wait to show it off! It may not be the biggest or have the fanciest "stuff", but it is still my most treasured possession!

    They would pay for the camping. I have an allowance. BUT, what I don't use on my trip, can be used to buy stuff for my computer classes at school. I would rather have some new "techno stuff" and pay my own way in Austin.

    My oldest son goes to UT. I am also going to get to spend Tuesday night having a good time with him. If school were paying for it, I would probably be expected to hook up with other district people for something. It's all good!

    Anything for a fellow educator! When I went to the TX Girls Coaches Clinic in Austin this last summer, we took our first PUP and stayed at McKinney Falls SP and had a blast!
