Well, we completed our shake down trip for the season by going to the Larry Joe Taylor Texas Music Festival and Chili Cook-Off. We went down on Tuesday night when they only sold 300 tickets. On Wednesday, they allowed in 500. I believe all 500 people must have been assigned to our same camping area because we quickly filled up. In the area that we camp, there are no marked sites. Instead, there are tree stumps with multiple power supplies on them. You find your box and try to reach it. After a day or two, it gets to where there is normally one designated trailer parker because it is so crowded. Normally a few people have to move their trucks, allow the trailer to get parked and then move their trucks back in. Needless to say, you don't get to leave on Sunday until the people around you are ready to leave.
But we survived 5 nights of camping, with quarter size hail the first afternoon. If you want to see any of the pictures, go to http://community.webshots.com/user/allison_andrews
Here are just a few pictures from the event.
When we set up on Tuesday, we had lots of room and managed to get a nice layout. We had just enough room between the smoker and camper for the awning.
You can see all the trees with boxes on them that are empty at this time.
This is the next day. It has definately gotten more crowded.
These are pictures of the hail storm.
