Well, it has been 3 years in the making, but we finally found a Spirit Deluxe that where where able to snatch up. Our luck in the past has been just a day late or a few dollars short, but the wait I am sure will be worth it. But with that being said, we have one more obstacle to get our new baby, that being 1350 miles, Idyllwild Ca, to New Braunsfel Tx. The tow vehicle is packed and we will depart on Sunday the 23 at O-dark:30. I will post a photo when I am not on a iPad " the site uses flash for uploading and iPads and flash do not mix"

Les --

 

FINALLY!  I'm very excited for you. Now you can join us at Quartzsite next February...and hopefully, we can get a group of folks together to camp up at Idyllwild.

 

Safe travels on your way to and from Texas Hill Country. Hope you have some time to spend in the area. It's beautiful!

Spent a lot of my youth up in the Fern Valley area - way back when the big pine tree was still in the middle of the road, oh heck back in the 50's.  Am now in New Mexico.  Have a safe trip across and back home.

Bop Hope (us olders remember him) once said "Driving through west Texas you see miles and miles of miles and miles!" Keep on keeping on - despite the long road, there is an end to west Texas!

 

Nice looking egg at the end of the trail.

Woo-hoo! Makin' progress!  Your dad is with you?  How cool is that.

 

Have any camping plans for the trip back to CA?
