Gotcha on the Angus bears. LOL

I'm used to locking the galley down at night. Most campgrounds in Texas have militant herds of raccoons that have no fear of people.

Great to hear the plans and cooking ideas...I've not used a dutch oven yet myself. I might borrow one. What if I was planning on coming up on Thursday? Perhaps I'll
find a different site for that night. I'm really looking forward to meeting ya'all soon. :R



* Update - I made a reservation at Fremont Lake for Thursday, the 19th. Didn't want you to worry about me....if, in fact, any one was......:ok:

  • Who'd want to use bear spray on an Angus bear? You can easily spot one from a distance, and just toss them a few range cubes to divert them.

Okay, okay, I'll leave the microwave at home. I'm actually surprised at the number of campgrounds along our route have electric hookups though.

No microwave means a place for water jugs. And maybe some Texas whiskey.

also maybe a firecracker or two.
