I am worried about all the folks who are on site for the Rally tonight....Thursday. Unexpected frontal weather just passed thru the area. I am 20 miles north and we had heavy 1 inch hail and numerous tornados to the north of us. I hope the Grassland site did well. There is no communication out that way and the radar images looked grim.

It looked from local radar here (FTW) like the nastiest of it was NE of the LBJ Grasslands, closer to the OK border. Let's hope that's the case!

Once I got there (the next day (I get lost easily, especially at 1:30 am & missing the last turn sign Ann had so kindly put out) I had a ball. Renewed some good friendships, finally met folks I've known only thru their posts here on the Forums, got to tour 'Birdie' and so many other vintage beauties and loved the wonderful cowboy catering & story telling. Two kegs of great Texas beer didn't hurt either.

Paul & Ann and the folks that helped really put on a great campout.

Here's a couple of shots I took...it was a beautiful location, but if people look like they are "crooked" it's from leaning into the wind!
