2013 Central Texas FOD Rally and BBQ Tour - February 22-24, 2013

Hello my FOD (and Friends of FOD) Friends,

Who's interested in a rally in February? In Central Texas, our chances of great weather are about 50/50. And if the weather is bad? Who cares? We'll be in the BBQ Capital of Texas!

Here is the plan.




Date:
The weekend of February 23, 2013. Becky and I will plan to arrive Thursday a.m. and leave Sunday.

Campground:
Leisure Resort in Fentress, TX. See more about it here Leisure Resort Campground & Rv Park, San Marcos River Camping, Fentress, TX 78622

Other than being a great spot to hang with your FODs, location wise it's pretty great too. It's 10 minutes from Lockhart, 10 minutes from Luling (in case BBQ in one town isn't enough), 5 minutes from a winery Three Dudes Winery and 5 minutes from a place to go skydiving Sky Dive San Marcos

We currently have 20 sites reserved along the river. If those fill fast, I'll grab some more. If there is anyone that would like to join but aren't able to bring their AS, there are plenty of cabins. I'm waiting for the manager to call back with rally rates, but Non-rally rates for the sites I've reserved are 41.00 per night, so if nothing else, it won't be more than that.

If you'd like to reserve a spot, simply call Leisure Resort at 512-213-0112 and tell them that you're with the Airstream group. I'll keep an updated list of folks that have reserved spaces here https://docs.google.com/a/mercurymam...3NGVzVnc#gid=0

BBQ Tour:
On Saturday, we'll pile into cars and drive into Lockhart and tour and taste at 4 of the best BBQ restaurants in Texas.
Black's Barbecue - Black's Barbecue :: Home
Smitty's Market - Smitty's Market
Chisolm Trail - http://www.chisolmtrailbbq.com
Kreuz Market - Redirecting to KreuzMarket.com!

Want to know a little about Lockhart and it's BBQ lore? Check out this episode of The Daytripper The Daytripper Blog Archive Episode 203: Lockhart, TX

The Other Suff:
We'll fill that in in the next 4 months.

We just checked the schedule and Amy has drill that weekend. Total bummer. Perhaps Collin and I will make a day trip up.

Bummer! Do consider coming for the day though. It's a close drive from SA and looks like a pretty great park.

Great to hear you got this going outstanding we hope to make it.That is a great park we had it reserved this year for a tubing rally but sadly plans did change. I toured the park it is great it is a great canoe and tubing park and the young couple that owners it has done a lot of work it has been in the family for a long time before they had the management firm of leisure take it over they will do all they can for bot vintage trailer's and airstreams.

Ya know what? We might just make it after all. Amy can drive up separately and go to drill during the day. Looking forward to some fun and BBQ!

Scorpiontimo - when I went to tour the park, a vintage tin can rally was there. That may have swayed my love for Leisure just a tad.

Steve - since it's a weekend, there won't even be any traffic!

Hi All,

We're about a month out of this gathering. This spring time weather we've had these last few days is getting me super excited about spending a weekend in the Bambi.

The group is currently small, but chock-full of people I like to hang with.

If you're on the fence, make your reservation. It's going to be a great weekend!

Lynn

Smile Texas BBQ Trail

Was reading your plans for the Texas BBQ rally you are planning and it brought to mind a brochure that my son's company put together for the Texas BBQ trails organization in your area and thought that you might find it usefull and hopefull helpful in your planning.

I might add a personal note....Fantastic BBQ in all of them...

Here's a useful link...

Welcome to the Texas BBQ Trail

Mike and Lucille - I'm glad you're joining us! I've never actually seen one an Airstream with the slide out. I've always wondered if they were mythical creatures, sort of like unicorns.

Steve,

Are you thinking that you and Collin are going to join us? I'm going to invite my neighbor and they've got two boys, 8 & 11. I'll probably talk to her today so I'll let you know if they can come.

Lynn

I wish we were able to join. It's my grandmothers 99th birthday. We are driving up to NY for that. Maybe next year if y'all do it on another week. :-(

99, wow! I think missing for your Grandmother's birthday is the best reason ever.
