    Hey Bart, how you level side to side on your TT? You use the pups leveler?

    We use 2 Andersen Levelers under each tire of the low side. Easy to use-drive up on them until level then put the chock under it to wedge in place. I also use a BAL extend a chock between the tires on the non leveled side to eliminate the rocking.

    For anyone that sees this.. It looks like the weather Friday may be a little rough in the afternoon. There is a front pushing thru so Jewett will see some storms and winds. Doesn't look like anything too crazy but it may make for some damp setups. Saturday and Sunday's weather looks great with the night temps perfect for a camp fire.

    Julie, the kids and I are going on up thursday after work. Figured we'd rather get in late than have to tow in friday's weather. We'll be available to help folks setup on friday if yall need it.

    Thank you everyone at the Lake Limestone rally. We had a great time seeing everyone and seeing the members of the Texas Puppers camping group. The breakfast for the ladieson Saturday turned out pretty good. An Easter egg hunt for the kids was fub to watch. The ladies cooking the evening potluck was awesome. Thank you thank you. Txbum & Mary Jane

    I learned alot about leveling your camper by using Lynx blocks and even got to see the Anderson wedge levelers in use. Also learned more about black & grey water management. thanks skeeter, Bart, & Billy.

    Glad it turned out well. Our scout campout went well this weekend. At least I got to try out my new tent, which was awesome! Love being able to stand up in the morning to change instead of doing it while laying down. Weather was perfect on Saturday too, although Sunday morning it got warm and humid where we were.

    Maybe I can make a fall rally if my schedule has room.

    Thanks! The window for reservations for the second weekend in Sept opens up July 10, but I will be sending reminders and specific site recommendations much earlier. If you are going to start a new discussion thread for this Fall Rally, just let everyone know that we will be putting out the info on sites in June at the latest. It is TRA Wolfcreek Park on Lake Livingston, 5 miles from Coldspring, TX. Plenty of sites, beautiful landscape on Lake with creek also. Full marina, canoe rental and bait and fishing pier and swimming area. Town is county seat and has a good diner and antique and boutique shops. I could go on, but save more for later.
