    Gotta love Glen's will to fight this cancer. I'm not a bit surprised he got up on that roof to lend a hand. He's not lacking in determination and resolve and he's not going to take it lying down.

    Wish I could be with you guys for this rally. Gonna miss it. Steve and Trent will be leaving on the 20th for a week of Boy Scout Camp out at Bear Creek Scout Reservation in the Hill County. I've tried to talk them into parking me and the pup at Garner SP, Guadalupe River SP or Lost Maples SP for the week, but to no avail.

    An update... [:!] Well we are at a point that we never wanted. The Dr has given Glen 2 1/2 yrs of chemo and a hand full of different kinds. With big-o-crock tears, Hospice has been called in, stat. We were on our way home from Dr and they called my cell. We haven't had time to process this yet and it broke my heart even more to get that call. Glen said maybe meet with them next week....Yes, I know the cancer is all over but this doesn't happen to us...just to others. Right? It is totally in God's hands now.
    Another sad thing...Glen bought a new truck last week...just got it today. Well new to us. He said he wanted a bigger truck for the bigger trailer to pull for years to come.
    We run a cancer support group here and I am always helping people thru this time and stage. But now what do I do?
    Buffy....hugs so you my friend. You always text at the right times and you know me more than you know!!! Lyz...nope, I'm not even 48 yet and...wow...this just sucks!!
    Pray...

    Which area of the park are people planning on staying. We will be arriving on Thursday so we should be able to get a spot in that area. Looking forward to meeting other Texas PUP members.

    Bob & Mary,

    Palmetto State Park is one of the smaller state parks in TX, there is only one camping loop ( Site # 1 - 19 ) that has Water & Electric hook ups. This will be our 4th Pop Up Rally that we have been to so far and every time the Rally folks stayed in the Water & Electric sites, so just pick your favorite site in the loop and you will be with everyone else.

    So far it looks like there will be at least 6 pop up campers there for the Rally, possibly more. [A]

    We will be arriving Friday night, looking forward to meeting you guys and seeing some familiar faces from previous Rallies. [8D]

    [LOL] [LOL] [LOL] We are taking our little pup with us to Florida. I wouldn't have it any other way. My DH might would have liked using the RV but not me.

    Phil, I sure hope that oil stays offshore and doesn't mess up your trip down there. I hear there's lots of cancellations down that way. That could be a plus with less of a crowd. Have a safe trip. We just camped at Ratcliff Lake near Crockett for Memorial Day and hope to go somewhere for July 4th. But without reservations yet, I'm finding it hard to find a spot to camp, of course. Steve only has the weekend, but I have 3 days. [:D]

    Lori,

    I wish it was us who went to FL, but that was Janice who went. [;)]


    We went to Lost Maples State Natural Area in Vanderpool up in the Hill Country for Memorial Day weekend. For June we will be back at Palmetto SP for the International Rally.

    In July the PUP will be in the garage. [:(] We are driving out to AZ to visit my family, so for the 4th Of July we'll be at Lake Powell AZ, we're also going to be taking the kids to see the Grand Canyon, while the kiddos are with grandma the wife and I are taking a side trip to Vegas for a few days, then it's on to Flagstaff, AZ to visit my brother, and on the way home we're stopping off in Las Cruces, NM to visit one of my daughters friends that used to live here.

    We MIGHT get in a camping trip toward the end of July but not sure yet. Can't remember where we have reservations for Aug. lol

    The San Marcos river next to Palmetto had a minor flood last week. My sister in laws sister was there this past weekend on a day trip and she says everything there is OK. She said the river was pretty roiled up, but I think by this coming weekend it should settle down. She was telling me that they have paddle boats on some of the smaller lakes around the site now. She had a good time, so I'm jazzed about getting down there this weekend. I'm taking my rig to work Friday and blasting out of there as early as they will let me. I'm about an hour away so I'll have plenty of time to set up. My AC is working good and I'm ready to get away from the Austin scene for a few days. Let's camp....!!!!!
