    With school (senior year for our son) it is too early for us to consider January plans. I would like to show up, even if it is a solo run for me. Our October and November are booked solid with school, scouts and college related activities. At least he settled on a college, just got his acceptance letter and 1st scholarship, so that helps somewhat. Close to a 6 hr drive for me too. Will monitor and see how things shape up.

    Sara mentioned this to me the other day. I believe she's been texting some of the group about going. We're definitely interested. Haven't been out camping much this year with the changes to the Texas State Parks reservation system requiring the full fee up front (instead of just the first night), the 5 month reservation window (instead of 12 months), and camping being more popular due to COVID. Now last year was a good year for our camping. Got our first trip since last November coming up here in the next few weeks.
    We'll be keeping an eye on this one.

    The good thing about Texana is there are so many sites! And, it’s not a state park, so not as well known!

    It’s been a while since I’ve been on this site, but txbum told me about the rally coming up. We just secured site 102 and are hoping to make it. It’ll be me, the wife, a 15 year old and a 5 year old.

    Lake Texana? I haven't been there since 2005! What an amazing park though! When I went we literally had deer snooping around the picnic table while we ate breakfast. I guess they knew we couldn't get them in the park, and being a singles group of 30 somethings and associated kids, probably knew most of the adults were worn ragged...

    Deer still roam thru morning and evening! Join us! We are mostly around the playground and bathhouse 100-118 so far.

    Tossing out the idea of a Dutch oven pot luck Sat night. If you have one. They are versatile for any kind of food! I also want to plan some games with adults and kids alike. It looks like we’re may have 8-10 kids so far.
