    We couldn't have an Inter-National Rally with Texas. You can come for the weekend, stay a few days late or stay for the whole week. There is so much or so little to do.

    I haven't camped here, but I drove through late in December 2009 and this looks like a great place to park. I'm putting in my reservations. How do you signal another camper that you are portal member?

    We usually put a sign at the front of the site. You can make your own or buy one from the Portal. Joe (JoeCamper) will probably be able to give you the link on where to purchase the Portal items.

    I'm so torn! [:(] I want to camp, but also need to spend Father's day with my Dad. I'll just have to see what we're going to have scheduled this summer. I definitely want to go back to Branson and Trent will be in Boy Scouts so there's camp for that and several church camps to go this year too. We may already have a full summer. Looking forword to seeing many of you in February at Tyler SP!

    I am hoping to make it but still waiting to book. A friend I haven't seen in 20 years is coming to town that week and we don't know exactly when yet. I want to be able to spend a day or two with her. So I am just waiting on her confirmation.

    Just an update....Glen started back on chemo this week. Dr says liver is infected with cancer also and parts of the lungs. We both looked at the calender and are going to try and make this trip. I see there are sites so will book this week. Lets keep fingers crossed and say tons of prayers!! Now...are we still welcome? We don't have the pup anymore but always will in our hearts.
