Just goes to show how big Texas really is. Seven hours from San Antonio to the rally, but only five and a half hours from New Orleans.

Debating whether to bring my Sea Eagle inflatable kayak. Only bought it a couple of weeks ago and still just getting my feet wet, so to speak, but by the time November rolls around I should have enough experience in it that I don't paddle like a wounded duck anymore.

Jim, this rally is in November, surely your Cruiser will be ready. Get you rear in gear, sign up and be there.

Sweet, Johnny & Connie are coming as well. We'll have some birthday fun for Johnny.

Darnit!

We're actually going to be checking on our land in VA during this rally. Last years rally was actually the first and only one we've ever been to and I was looking forward to this one again. I'm sure you will have a most excellent time! Post pictures.

Peace
Michael

To each his own, but I'm confused. The rally will come and go, but your land will still be there. Not like it's going to get up and walk away. Now if it was in an area prone to earthquakes or mudslides or sinkholes, then you could say you need to make sure it's still there…

Not so long a drive from Vernon. Never been to Arrowhead, it is a mud hole, and way over fished to the point now that there is no purpose. There is a great small lake in Jacksboro that is a gem but do not tell anyone...

Used to traveling. We do this often. Before our AS, we have a long history of tent camping all over the western USA. Just get in the truck and drive to where you want to go. We are continuing this family tradition. Our kids think we are more crazy now than before. Thinking about this rally as our first one. It is during our busy Fall season. We own a Garden Center so it may be a wild hair get away thing if there are spaces left

I would estimate the in park loops at around 2 miles for training purposes, mostly flat, asphalt with mixed shade, and a very small hill in Loop C down by the water. I know that at least one person brought his road bike and rode to the dam outside of the park... and bike_addict is an avid cyclist. Is she doing HHH this weekend? Or just a tri-athlete?

There are definitely some good roads to ride on outside the park. I will be bringing mine for an early morning ride.

Keep those reservations rolling in

Just wanted to roll out the welcome mat for anyone who hasn't been to an AS rally before, or if you have, come along as well.

This is a really laid back group of folks (well it was last year, who knows what another year of aluminitis can do) and a great way to see if you like hanging out in the midst of shiny trailers.
