Dave,

If you are heading east on I-10, stop at the Caverns of Sonora in Texas.

http://www.cavernsofsonora.com

It's much smaller than Carlsbad, but I was disappointed by Carlsbad by comparison. There's even a real cheap no frills campground onsite. I went there in 1961 and 2011. Did Carlsbad in the 1980's. Both Sonora trips were excellent. And it is not home to any bats. Sorry, Sue.

Now, these sites are at a pretty good angle from the road along side the pavillion. The pedestal and sewer are nearest to the pavillion road, so if you reversed your parking it will have your pedestal near your front door.

CL said they don't care how you park but I would suggest you look it over good before you pull in and start setting up. Some sites are better than others for this reverse.
Thanks, Miya will enjoy the people walking by.

What's the drinking age in Arkansas? Is it still 13 for moonshine? Sena turns 18 on 4/17 and she LOVES beer and booze.
Hmm! Drunk on very little. Very interesting. Can Sena walk you home?

===============

Dave, if you are taking I-10, stop in or around San Antonio. Do the River Walk, and also the Natural Caverns in New Braunfels.

She probably could being as it's a very short walk home from the pavilion. I'll just leave the Segway parked at home that night.

For me to be the first to post is like Francis the talking mule winning the Kentucky Derby. Don't look for this to happen again during the current century.

BTW - - our MH freezer is 3/4 full of freshly washed and desteminated strawberries. For you mutants attending CL gathering, think home made shortcake, ice cream, delicious strawberries from Florida, and whip cream.

R U an RV Mutant too?

Thanks for all the cave info, STMs!
Believe it or not, we are on a schedule this time; totally out of form for us. Must beat feet to Hot Springs to visit nephew and his sweet lady in LR before the GC.
But I have the caves all catalogued!
Today is Roswell. Hope to not get abducted. Lots of campy pics to take.
Safe travels, Steve and Sweet Annie, and all RVMs in transit.

Yikes!
Between fried pies and strawberrys and (real) smoothies, I am much more gastronomically prepared for the GC than ever!
Good thing the Kimono opens early or it would not fit all of the mysteries. I am confident my grass skirt will fit no matter what. But about those coconuts?

The Area 51 is the ideal place for mutants to visit! Can't wait to see those pics!

We won't be traveling until Sunday Dave - but X2 on Safe Travels to all STMs... as they ride the rainbow!

Well then! Top o the mornin to ye! Have a great one.

On my way out to start my walk, I met others coming back. Oops! I also noted red faces and sweat. Hmmm. My near future.

One small cuppa, almost a mile walk, and I'm now sitting in the shade at Rookery Bay Ed Center, listening to a TED Talk podcast. Very pleasant, and the podcast keeps my feet walking.

The boids is a-choipin (bluebirds are still here!), the palms and ferns breathe out cool air ... and I still have the most of a mile to go. C'ya!

Sounds so good I can almost taste them, oh wait, I just finished a bowl of fresh strawberries covered with Greek yogurt!

Can't wait to get this group together.

I often wondered if France's the talking Mule was related to Balaam's Donkey!

Morning Tim. You sent the cool weather here for the morning. Looks like the sun will warm us up after noon when the north wind drops and we hit mid 60s today, 78 tomorrow and 80s to follow.

Have a great day!
