Wonder if mid-May is too early to go home through Taos and Chama ?

There would be a 50/50 chance to freeze mid May in Taos and Chama I live in central New Mexico and even here we get an occasional light freeze.

Our "Last Supper" will be a trip to the Big Texan Steakhouse.   If you're brave enough, they offer a 72 oz.
sirloin steak dinner that is FREEif the entire dinner, including potato and salad, are eaten in one hour.  It's
a fun place to visit.

Did you see on last nights news where a lady ate this meal in 9 minutes and then turned around and ate another one to boot!!  Turns out she is a professional eater who does this kind of thing all the time but, otherwise, eats very little.

By the way, the last name for your list is Norwood and we sure hope to make this gathering.

Reservations can be made online at http://texas.reserveworld.com/Home.aspx once they open.  Right now you can only reserve up to 4/28/2015.  There are both 30A (32 sites) and 50A (47 sites) sites, all with water.
Thanks for that link Ned.  Larry said we are going to try and get all together in the 50 amp Mesquite area (47 sites) so I would encourage everybody to call early.  Did my homework and the annual pass is $70 for you and your guests whereas the daily entrance fee is $5 for adults so it is just about a wash and a savings if you intend to stay in any other Texas State Parks next season.

Thread drift....

That 72 oz Big Texas Steakhouse challenge?  How about downing one in less than 5 minutes?  A 125 lb mother of 4 did just that over Memorial Day, followed by a second one.   She took her time on that one - almost 10 minutes.

It looks like a fun group.  In addition to seeing everyone again, we're looking forward to going on a hike (or two?) with Larry's 90-year-old dad!  That should be a blast!  Hope I can keep up with him....

Ron,

If you are up for another collaborative show, we'll have Tara's equipment with us. Maybe we could talk Tom or other entertainers into making the trip?

We were already planning a trip to Texas, starting in March, so this is the maraschino cherry on the hot fudge sundae!  What a grand finale!  Dean and Linda Stock will be there.  Thanks for all the effort of organizing this.

I'm sure we can come up with something Ernie.  I'm leaving for the Greek Islands in a couple of days.  Should have some nice images.

Dean & Linda Stock will definitely be there.  We already had a spring trip to Texas planned and were going to be at Palo Duro in that timeframe.   How nice of you to have so many of our friends come, too!  Really, we do appreciate all the hard work organizing this will take.  Thank you.

I tried to call today and make my reservation and the Agent at the Central Reservations said that JUNE 11, is as early as they can now make reservations.  When I complained about getting swept down the road as it were she said rather curtly that June 11 is the date her computer shows.  You can't argue with a computer.

So move your Alarm back a couple of days.  Call in, on or after June 11, and make your reservation.  We are in Amarillo tonight to celebrate Dad's birthday.  I plan to make contact with someone down in the park tomorrow and develop a relationship with them (even if I have to buy lunch for them) so we have someone looking out for us when we start setting up in the Canyon.

When you do call in, be sure and mention you're with the RV Forum.  See you down in the canyon, under the stars at night, they are big and bright. . .   You know the rest.

She may have been frustrated as  she was getting  calls from quite a few of us today.  I had a "conversation" with her as well until I figured out as you did, you can't argue with a computer! So alarm is  set for 6/11.

Thanks John.  I just completed my reservation.  I spent less time doing this than I did on hold,
trying to call the center.  I SUGGEST EVERYONE MAKE ON LINE RESERVATIONS.  We will work
with the park direct to try to get everyone in the MESQUITE CAMPING AREA. 

See you in Texas ! ! !

Before we made our reservations we sent a gang email to the family and ask if they had any important dates in that time period.  Sure enough we were reminded that our oldest granddaughter will be graduating from college in Minnesota during that period so I guess you better scratch us from the list.  The Winnebago will be in the Land of Lakes next May.   Hope you all have lots of fun.
