Texas FOD

I was just thinking this morning it would be fun to organize a group of North Texans for regular meet ups at one of our many wonderful Texas State Parks. It would be fun to meet somewhere different on a regular basis. Any thoughts?

Also, anybody going to the Rainbow Ranch Trash Disco party next weekend? We're booked and have no clue as what to expect. Last time we stayed at Rainbow Ranch was about 16 or 17 years ago.

Hey Coke and James,
I've been thinking it would be great to have a Texas meet up! I'm in the Houston area, but more than willing to travel.

I stayed at the Rainbow Ranch during the Christmas Holidays, about one week. It was very nice and everyone was very friendly. I stayed through the new years eve/day and they had an awesome party. I would estimate about 200 in attendance. My site was right on the water. It would make a nice place to do a FOD in Texas.

I've also been staying at several state parks and enjoyed them as well.

I'd be happy to help organize something.
Rick

Hey Rick,

As you see there has been no further input on organizing some Texas FOD events. We made it to Rainbow Ranch this past weekend and you were right. Very nice! The Trash Disco party was a blast. We stayed there about 20 years ago (in tents) and it has come a long way since then. We're planning to go back for the Mardi Gras party the weekend of the 24th.

Hi Coke and James,
I see you will be at the FOD Rally in Hot Springs. That will be a nice time for us to chat about a Texas Meet up. Maybe we can plan something for the fall.

If we plan it, they will come.

Rick

Thanks Frank&Mike,

Would you guys still be interested? I liked your idea about Garner State Park. Maybe we just need to plan a date and see who is able to come. Even if it's only a few/couple of folks. It could grow from there.

We would definitely be interested. Garner State Park can be challenging to find availability ... it would require making reservations very soon. But we're open to all ideas and locations throughout Texas.

The Mardi Gras event at RR looks fun ... not sure we can make it that weekend. It's a possibility for consideration though.

I was trying to work out a way to attend the Mardi Gras party, but can't make it work this time.

Y'all have fun!

Frank and Mike, hope you can make it to Mardi Gras. Rick, We'll see you in Arkansas if not sooner! Our rig is in Fort Worth getting warranty work done. We hope it is ready by Mardi Gras!
