After reading that, I am sure glad it didn't spray Lance.

I like your attitude. Thank you for the explanation.

Took my parents to Pecan Park today for some floating. One of the huge Pecan Trees had just come down between a couple of trailers. Glad nobody got hurt. I am thinking that next summer, we will ask on one day to dedicate to pulling cans out of the river during the float. We pulled 4 bags of cans and trash off the shores today in the short hour and 15 minute float. We only got half of it since we had limited room with only our tubes.

Collin did get 8 dollars for the 4 bags thought. Taught him several lessons.

Yes, the trash on the river was disheartening. It was most certainly not the RV parks fault either. I must have picked up 20-30 cans on the deeper parts of the rapid adjacent to the park on the day we left. If the park would allow an extra tube for trash collection purposes, we could do a great cleanup.

Thats Right Steve

The tree's here are needing help Water, This issue with the management of the park is equal to and ostrich putting his head in the sand we have told them a few of the trees need to come down it's a shame but mother nature does not distinguish between a 300 year old pecan tree and a weed. The tree that fee last night was a big one and thank god or some one to be political correct, no one was hurt and not one rig was damaged. The owner now realized we need a tree service in here so we have that and we moved 8 rigs out of the park where the few tree's are located at so they can take them down. We should have a much safer park for all,
The can issue is a ongoing problem last weekend will pulled 195 pounds of cans off the river and a industrial dumpster full of trash this was just in front of the park in the river about 100 yards of river frontage, We give a bag refund of $2.00 for every full bag of trash taken off the river and boy do the kids in the park bring in the bags. Our biggest offender is a place called Don's Fish Camp a haven for kids to tube and drink Don puts ave 2,800 kids on the river every day on weekends and 300+ during the week days, pity other people's kids and adults have no respect for this lovely river but that is the factor that trash the river good idea Steve for next year, and it was a pleasure to have you and your family here today you are welcome here anytime.

Having a tree come down is scary. I had a 100 year old oak (as wide as my 1993 Ford Taurus SHO) come crashing down on me with my girlfriend (at the time) and me still in it. The truck came down lengthwise on my car from hood to trunk, but the tree was so large and wide it not only totaled my car, but the branches totaled the adjacent cars next to me, 2 cars on each side, 5 cars totaled...

Luckily, my girlfriend was able to get out. I needed the fire department and jaws of life to get me out. The only thing that saved my life was the steering wheel giving me just enough room to lean over the center console without completely crushing me.

I wish I could find those pictures. It's one of those that you look at and shake your head in amazement.

Sounds good - count us in.

Just got back from a 4 day trip to Atlanta State Park in the Airstream & attended my Hight School class reunion. Good to see the old gang! Thirteen have gone on a higher place & looked like a few more are on their last legs. Amazingly most were in good shape.

We were the only ones who camped.

Sam,

I will be in contact regarding the Texas Airstream Club once several of us have time to get rolling on it.

I have a confession, Amy and I have bought a trailer. The problem is that it is a total gut job, and likely won't be ready until next year. It is also in Seattle, Washington. The good news is that Dave Park left this morning to go up and bring it home for us.

A thread to follow...exciting.

Steve
