Padre Island Christmas & New Years

As of earlier today it looks like I will spending the better part of my winter break on the beach at Padre Island Nat Seashore . I spent about a week there last new years eve and as you can tell, I loved it.

Camping right on the beach, catch some rays, quaff some margaritas, ah the good life. This year I am going to try some surf fishing.

BTW does any one know if you can you use enclosed fire pits during burn bans? Not being able to have a fire was a major downer last year and I think burn bans are the rule rather than the exception there in the winter.

Sounds like a good plan. Now if you could just get fresh shrimp delivered

We were there in Feb. 2001 in the precursor to my Airstream.

Rally?

Anyone want to rally during this time? Say anytime during Dec 18- Jan 4. It could be a revolving rally with people coming and going.

You're having way too much fun traveling this year. Wish we could go with you, that beach in January is a great idea.

Thanks eikel1we, that does cover campfires in general, but I'm trying to sort out if one can get away with a covered/enclosed portable fire pit during the fire bans. If I can't find it online, I guess I can call the park.

Yes I am, and yes it is The best part is the money I would be spending to stay here at the rv park is about what I expect to spend on fuel getting there and camping there is free. Hence, the cost of staying here and the cost of spending 2-3 weeks on the beach are about the same. Not a tough choice for me to make.
