Our Upcoming TX Trips

So just got through making some reservations. Wish I could plan out December too but we're being good and going to wait and see what everyone's Christmas Party schedule is. So here's the plans:

10/28 - 10/30 Mill Creek at Sam Rayburn
11/11 - 11/13 Mill Creek at Sam Rayburn (Piney Woods Rally)
11/25 - 11/27 Double Lake Rec Area in Coldspring

And thinking about where to go for New Years. Probably back to Double Lake for a 4 or 5 day trip.

Maybe Huntsville in December as well.

What about the rest of you TX streamers? Gotta love that while everyone else on the forum is talking about winterizing we're just getting started!

Anyone happen to match up with our trips? What's your plans?

We figured why not. Go scope it out. Couldn't decide where else to go that was close and easy. We were going to do another Double Lake biking trip but they're booked up. My wife's been wanting to go and fish somewhere.

You know, just trying to get the jump on everybody.

There's lots of great campgrounds around Rayburn. Mill Creek is just one of my childhood favorites. I camped there with my grandparents and fished the lake with my Dad for the time I was old enough to hold a fishing pole.

I fly out of Vietnam on the 27th (if everything goes ok) and should be home on the 28th. If its ok with you, and Im not suffering from jet lag, maybe Mrs. S and I can ride up on the 29th for a visit.
I could tell or show you a couple nice parks around the lake.

I love Fredericksburg. My absolute favorite burger is at Hondos. They have a burger with queso on it that is to die for. I think they call it the TexMex Burger. Add guacamole to it and a cold Shiner and it can't be beat.

Definitely. If you feel up to it come on by.

I spent a lot of time growing up not far from there. I grew up in Beaumont and my family was on a Temple Inland hunting lease just south of Spurger for years and years. Grew up running the dirt roads around there.

Do you know if you can camp at Luckenbach? I'm pretty sure I've seen trailers there before but not positive.

There is a KOA on US290 fairly close to Lukenbach. Probably the best option if you want to get close by..

The KOA is a decent campground and close to Luckenbach & Fredericksburg. While you are in the area take a drive thru Benini Art area. Outdoor metal sculptures. Very interesting and they also Haney indoor area. It's off of Rt 290 going towards Johnson City.

Well doesn't look like we're going to make it this weekend. The dealer would have to pull off a miracle tomorrow and I don't think they're even gonna try. I'll let you know if something changes but doesn't look good.

Anyone been to Cleburne State Park outside of Dallas? It is listed in this months Backpacker Magazine as a top local hike. Have to add it to the list.

We've done Beavers Bend, Tyler SP, and Dinosaur Valley SP this fall. Enjoyed all three and will be headed back to Beavers Bend soon. It's not in TX but it's close and so pretty.
