    Just a note to say howdy. I've been reading but not really posting, 'cause there's not much to tell.

    Our PUP is tucked away for the summer. We decided after our trip to Rockport in June that it's just too hot from June until October to camp, even with the A/C. I don't take the heat like I used to (even being a native Texan) and DH is from Scotland, sooooo...she'll be taken out of hibernation come October and cooler temps.

    We did make a noncamping trip to Brookshire earlier this month where DH raced in the Texas State Time Trial Championships, placing quite nicely. We have another noncamping trip scheduled for the first weekend in October to Lufkin and a bike tour called the Pineywoods Purgatory. There were no good-sounding coveniently located campsites for this outing, so we booked a hotel. I sure am spoiled, tho, sleeping in our camper and I miss it when staying in a hotel.

    Ah well, cooler weather's coming and we'll be booking some times away in our sugar of a PUP, our "Highland Spirit."

    Keep those stories comin' 'cause I'm enjoying reading them!

    I have to agree with you. Camping in Texas in the summertime can be miserable. That's where the people up North have it over us. Their summers are beautiful. I camped in March, April and June. I camped at Krause Springs in July. Have you been to Krause Springs. It's a private campground that has the most beautiful swimming hole. The water there is ice cold, so it's easy to keep cool. Then we took a break. I'm planning on taking the camper out in September and October for the last trips of the year. Then, in late February I will start camping again.

    Rest up fall is coming! Still plenty of time to camp!!

    Autumn will be here before we know it. Although I hate winter, I do love going Sept thru early Nov in Illinois. The cool nights makes a campfire more fun!

    We have our last trip scheduled for late November. Our next trip
    is Sept. 6. We will be going back to Fort Stevens State Park. It is
    on the Oregon coast, near the mouth of the Columbia river. There
    are miles of bike trails, and my Ortho Doc has given the OK for
    longer bike trips. I've already started my "lists". This will be the
    first camping trip that is just the DH and myself. We have had
    family with us all summer, so this really will be one for relaxing.

    Glad to hear you're still out there, Betty.

    Congrats to DH on the biking! We have had such a wonderfully unusual summer here (a bit too dry, but I'll take it!). On our trip a week ago, we had temps in the mid 80s during the day with low humidity, and mid 50s at night.... I didn't even think about turning the A/C on....That isn't Virginia in August...typically we have mid to high 90s with 90%+ humidity...and mid 70s at night!
