Took 5 or 6 times to get them to answer but mission accomplished. See you in Big Bend.
Henry, I must be very lucky.  I have called them twice and they picked up both times.  Very friendly and helpful.

I'm looking forward to seeing you and the others in Big Bend.

Jerry I don't think you are going to find a national forest in the State Park there. The park headquarters for the State Park is over 20 miles off the main highway. The road is all rock and desert. The wife and I drove it last April in our Jeep.
   Larry Dodd will have his Harley with him and there is some great roads to ride in Big Bend. The road going into the basin is very wooded.

Henry Big Bend  has more 800,000 acres of mt and cliffs your saying all the roads are dirt? Every national forest I have been to has some of the best roads for scenic riding. Big Bend stat park  is 300,000  acres of desert wildness . I hope Lajitas RV park has  paved roads to it. It looks like  Lajitas centrally located. I don't have a jeep only 2 small ATV. That is  good Larry is bringing  his Harley . I remember him from Quartzsite  this year we had bike trouble kinda of messed  Quartzsite up for Debra an I.

Jerry, I was referring to the Texas state park you mentioned above. There is no paved roads in that park. Now in Big Bend all the main roads are paved.

We are on the fence about bringing the bike.  When I talked to Maverick RV Park they said they had plenty of room for our trailer, but with the Jeep trails I don't know if there will be time for bike riding.  Wife and I are still contemplating and will more than likely change our minds several times before we depart for the rally.

Very happy to see everyone that is coming out to Big Bend !  Of the many things to look forward to is you will see more stars and man-made space objects(orbital debris) streaking across the sky than you have ever seen before.  Maverick Ranch RV Park has a strict no light pollution policy to allow for all to enjoy this.

In making reservations, you can also ask to be connected to Maverick Ranch and speak with the park manager Tony.  She will honor the rally rate for early arrivals and later departures.

Ned:

Can you change the date on the rally post to the 24th?

That was a noob mistake on my part and I will contact the park today and clear things up them.

Thanks,

For those who don't follow Gary Phillips on Facebook here is a GREAT aerial survey of Big Bend NP.
I watched it on big screen and it's awesome.  Additionally turn up the speakers for some good western
music.  We will try to have a good sound system in Big Bend so we can enjoy some Texas Swing. . ..

Yes JerryG&Deb, we now have the HD permanently attached to the rear of the RV.  Looking forward
to doing some riding in Big Bend.  There are some great roads there.  If you have a bike, bring it and
let's plan on at least one good day of biking in Big Bend. . .

No problem at all.  Have him call the office and make reservations.  Give me his name etc., and I will show him
on the roster.  Glad to have some more bikers at the rally.  We now have a Hydra-Lift on our 43' American Coach
that works pretty well.  We also tow our Jeep behind.

Tell your friend to come join us.  The more the merrier. . . .

Happy to have you on board.  Call the park and make your reservations.  Will you be bringing the projector
and a load of new photos?  We will have at least one, maybe two group cook outs.  Perhaps this year we won't
have to fight the weather.

PERHAPS!!!  What is this perhaps stuff Larry, I was under the belief that there would be NO severe weather in Big Bend like in PDC. ;)  Us mountainous folks don't react as well to tornados and other weather related anomalies like you flat landers.  I had better not let the wife get a wiff of this. ;D

1st attempt to insert a table from MS Word.  If this turns to guano, I will try again.
Wanted to add the Marabito's and correct a spelling error for a name.  Read the list
and see if you can find out whose name I can't spell.  HINT: It's not Mike & Chrystal. . .

We Welcome a new person to our group.  We (Henry & Margaret and Loretta & I) met Paul DeMarias on Nova Scotia
this summer.  He is French Canadian and spends half of his time in Canada and the other half in Florida.  He was a lot
of fun to hang out with, and we enjoyed his sense of humor and personality a lot.  We enjoyed fine food and spirits.

Paul says he is coming to Big Bend.  Like many of you, he is struggling with being able to contact the RV park but says
he is not giving up.  We look forward to you meeting him.  Our Rally's are becoming very International.

Photo is of our group on Nova Scotia, and as I recall it was Margaret Wishard's Birthday celebration.
