oh ya did i mention i was going camping leaving in a couple hours and will be back monday so talk to you then unless i can find a signal in the park someplace a lot of state parks are getting wireless now a days

will be at Eisenhower State Park texas it is located at lake texoma


History: Eisenhower State Park, with 423.1 acres, is located in Grayson County, northwest of Denison on the shores of Lake Texoma. It was acquired in 1954 by a Department of Army lease, which extends until 2004, and was opened to the public in 1958.

The park was named for the 34th U.S. president, Dwight David Eisenhower, as he was born nearby. In the early 1830s, the area became increasingly important to Anglo settlers, particularly as a route to Texas and the American southwest. Some of the things which add to the history of the area are the American Indian; Butterfield Overland stage routes; Chisholm and Shawnee cattle drive trails; Fort Johnson, established in the area in 1840; and Colbert's Crossing, established on the Red River in 1853 and operated until 1931

Have a great time. We are heading out after work tomorrow for a weekend at Chatfield State Park here in Colorado. I de-winterized last weekend and, wouldn't you know it, it snowed 3" last night and the temps dropped to 27. I had a heater running in the 5er ,and no water in the tanks or water heater, so I'm not worried :)

Anyway, the forecast is now for upper 60's to mid 70's for Sat/Sun so we are raring to go too!

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Quit rubbing it in. We're below freezing this weekend and the forecast is for up to 4 inches of snow! This is WELL below normal and getting very tiresome. I guess it could be worse though. Eastern Alberta is supposed to get 8 inches of snow. :cry:
There is no such thing as a bad day camping.

Just returned home from our first 2 nighter of the year. Hardly any problems except the fact that while they forecast 70 degree temps, they said nothing about the 30mph winds! :cry:

I USED to have a Labrador but we couldn't keep him out of the water when we took him camping. I'm so confused :o
