If anyone knows where I can pick up a bundle of firewood on my way into the park Saturday, I'll have a bungee net and an empty back seat.

Got my luggage mount fixed today (if you ask me, it's better than it was before!) and I'm practically still packed from the last camping trip! :mrgreen:

OK, I have one question on tent camping. I know you have paid for the first night already and we will pay you for it.

When I get to the park do I have to go inside the building and pay for the other nights or can I do that at the booth? Also I am only staying Friday/Saturday night so I guess I just pay for those nights, or will we loose a reservation for one of the spots if someone does not pay for Sunday night as well, since we may be sharing each site.

I hope that was not confusing, just trying to do the right thing here.

I am going to have to back out of this weekend. My bike is due for its 600 mile service and I need to get the metal out of the oil before I add another 400 miles to the odometer. I have an appointment at the dealer on Saturday. I will try and make the next gathering...thanks, Bill

What I intend to happen is we will get together Fri night or Sat, maybe briefly on Sunday for the late-late comers, and figure out how the money works out, get everybody to put their fair share in, and then pay the folks one lump sum for the whole deal.

Here's my thinking on the math, tell me if I'm way off base. We take the total bill (Should be about $180)/ person-nights (6-10 people per night, with coming & going). Everybody pays that number x however many nights they stay. (Think man-hours)

So if the total number of person-nights is, say 25, thats 180/25= 7.2 So that's $7.20 per night you stay. If you stay one night, $7.20. 3 nights, $21.60. Day use fees will obviously be per person.


When you get there, you should just be able to say "I'm with the Simpson group" and they'll tell you what spots we're in.

Hope that wasn't confusing, just trying to do the right thing here.:;)

Just finished taking the top layer of dirt off the bike, so I won't be too embarrassed to be seen next to Kent's shiny new mo-sheen. Trying to run through my head of all the stuff I'll realize I forgot about when I get to Austin.

Sounds like VIP treatment for us, I'll bet our campfire ring is even gold plated.

See everyone this afternoon.

STrider, thanks for putting this all together. I know the organizing/money part of these things can turn into royal pains. Just round my tab up to the nearest $5 and I'll buy you a cold one, too, for your troubles.

Okay, this time I really mean it. On the road after this post. STScott is there, we have spots 300-304 reserved. We are paid up with the campground, so just gotta get Scott & I reimbursed. (BTW HUGE thanks to Scott. He had to work some magic with the campground, because they did exactly what I tried to prevent, but he graciously took care of it)

I should be there between 2-3 pm. Pending further errors/ omissions.

I could, but they wo'nt let me in until the morning. :(

I have a weird work schedule, I am off Thursday nights, Fridays and Saturdays, I work Sundays, so I'd have to turn back around and come back. :(

The group left around 10 headed for Lime Creek Rd, I think. Tehtank and I left around 10:45 headed for parts north. Ya'll missed a great weekend of camping and riding the hill country.

I am back and tired. We did do limecreek, cow creek today. Then I just slabbed it back I35 to get home by 5pm. Man that headwind sucked heading north. I guess it was payback for having tailwind going down on Friday.

Saturday we hit 16, 337, 39 and a few others I could not remember, awesome day for riding, logged about 340 miles. Perfect weather for camping as well.

Thanks ST rider for setting all this up, everything was great. It was nice to meet everyone and ride with everyone. Thanks for waiting for me to pack up this morning before we headed out to limecreek road. If I have any good pictures I will post up later. I know Scott should have a few good ones.

I figured that to be the case, I did enjoy the ride out and back, did a little exploring, tried to go down the dam road [inks] it was almost dual sport as trees were down across it, had to turn around on the Bandit, could have kept going on a D.S. Ill catch yall another time. SZ.
