    We tent camped at I.B. Magee last year for Memorial Day weekend. It's a great campground in a great location and dirt cheap for Port A. However, the ocean wind was pretty brutal, our girls dome tent on the leeward side of our rigid pole tent was layed flat by it and they ended up sleeping in my co-worker's TT. So expect some rockin'.

    Oh yeah I have no doubt. That area is probably the best location in the US for camping dumpster divers [LOL] [LOL] The 1 day old stuff thrown away is amazing. Ive lived nearby for most of my life so I barely notice the wind. I should probably be more aware now that I have a pup... awning is NOT going up [LOL]
    Awesome to hear!! I will be sure to be close by to aid in any way we can... given it will be a couple of aggies in a tent, Ill prepare for the worst [LOL] [LOL]

That s why I pack two tents [LOL].....Yeah Ryan the dumpster are always full of neat stuff...I found a complete canopy pop up. One location a canopy top, a few hundred yards down a brand new canopy frame!....still looking for grill!

    I did notice a large amount of stuff in the dumpsters at Mustang Island SP. We actually did put our canopy up, but put extra tension on the poles to cut down on it moving around by using tie down straps pulling from the end of the canopy back to the bottom of the camper. Eventually we took it down as that side sail was causing a lot of movement in the roof. The wind was the one redeeming feature of that hot humid trip with no shade.

    On a side note, really looking forward to attending a rally now. Found out yesterday that a new policy my company invoked a week or so ago means I now get 4 more weeks of paternity leave.

    Just an FYI (especially for those who were there back in Jan), Lake Texana Campground in Edna is having their big Halloween event on Oct 24. It's a nice event for all the family. I reserved my favorite site last week and there were plenty open, but if you are interested, I'd get on it. I'm in site 118 on Texana side. I'm up at Wolf Creek at Lake Livingston for Labor Day. That's all I have planned due to the start of school and new grade and classroom this year.

    I did make it up to Lake Livingston for an afternoon of boat riding and a little fishing. Got a few nice white bass.
