Ok folks, the "coffee" has been ordered and we will pick it up on Thurs. afternoon.
FYI, prices on this, like everything else, have gone up, the cost is $178.61. So, yes - donations will be appreciated! I will buy some red/green plastic cups, but if you want to bring your own, just remember that it should be opaque....park rules of no public consumption still apply...so we will do all we can to be discreet. Getting excited, wish we were leaving tomorrow instead of Thurs! See you all there....
PS, for those who would like something warm and with no alcohol, we are planning to have some spiced apple cider simmering most of the time, so come on by and warm up with that as well...

Don't be in a HUGE hurry to arrive. It's COLD up here and is only going to get colder before the weekend. The good news is that your "coffee" can probably sit outside without ice.

Fishin' at the park

The park is scheduled to be stocked with trout on Thursday December 8.

I'm pretty sure the park has "loaner" poles.

In years past a fishing license was not required for park campers.

Rules may have changed.

I was check on that EXACT item last night with no success, so thanks Dennis! If you have a entry pass, you can fish. Expect it to be crowded.

Anybody know if the recent rains means a lift on the burn ban for camp fires at the parks? If so, I'm bringing wood!

Blanco County has lifted the burn ban, effective 5 Dec.

The doesn't mean the town allows burning (Blanco Settlement is in the city limits, I'm pretty sure) and the SP isn't bound by the county's decisions either. The SP still shows the burn ban on their web page. I don't know if the town has its own ban or just goes by the county's ruling.

Spoke with the park @1:20pm. At this time, they are still under a burn ban, but it sounded like they were discussing whether to lift. I'll call back on Thursday to see if that has changed, or I invite you to call the park at (830) 833-4333

The rules at state parks allow fishing without a license within the boundaries of the park, if entry fee is paid.

Wow ya'll sure know how to do this up right! I think this might be the best AS camping experience I've ever had! We are really excited, but not aabout the cold!Does anyone know if the place where we all gather is screened or provides any type of barrier to the wind? Also, I really appreciate the ones who are making the cider and bringing the wine. I will definitely contribute!
Thanks,
Lisa & Eric

Below is a link to the history of the Pavillion and some photos:

TPWD Item: Group Pavilion, Blanco State Park, 2007

Link to the map of the park:

http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publicat...p4507_012a.pdf

If anyone has a "Little Red Campfire" (or other type of Propane heater) please bring it on Saturday. Enough small ones placed around the outer perimeter should make the Pavillion plenty warm.

Dirty Santa Question

Are we supposed to bring one Dirty Santa gift per campsite or one per person? We purchased two gifts ... but thought I read on one of these posts later that it's one per campsite?????

Desert Friday - good tasting cookies
Pot Luck Saturday - broccolli and rice casserole
