Oh, no....that means my gray and white nylon tent will be lonely! But oh, well....with a 15 month old sleeping inside, they probably wouls make me set up somewhere on the back 40 anyway.....just so everyone else can sleep!

Pony,
I am sleeping in the Barracks, but I would be more than happy to bring down my canvas CW 'A"-wedge tent and set it up for you to use., if you're nylon-shy.

Bow View: Well, I won't worry about my tent getting lonely....I have three smaller ones that I used to travel on my motorcycle with.....but I borrowed this bigger one to try to "ease" the wife and baby into camping. She isn't impressed too much with the ones you have to crawl into.

RCJ: Thanks, but for the above stated "easing into it" reasons, maybe I better go with the bug resistant modern nylon contraption (with it's accompanying queen size air mattress) for now. But in the future, I hope to acquire a tent that will not get me banished to the back 40.

T-MINUS 29 DAYS TO THE 2010 GRAND MUSTER

Howdy To All

Glad to see the registrations are coming in, as well as others on there way. 
The engagements are all written along with the schedule, also a little Texas history and all will be posted as soon as Capt Mack
can get it on this post.  I'm sure he will be able to do this as he was able to take me by the hand to now include my photo on
my posts.
Also a huge THANK YOU to all who have been praying for my son Cole and his recovery from his accident, which was 4 weeks ago today.  He is doing so much better walking, talking along with being his same old self when he isn't hurting from surgery or fighting something else and will soon be transfered to a Nuro Rehab Hospital in San Antonio maybe tomorrow.

See you in Texas if the Lord is Willing

Do we have any final info on availability of the barracks?  Last time I slept out in south Texas, I had to shake a vinigaroon (sp) out of my boots. Not a pleasant thought to have to do it again. However, I have heard that Caldwell County is more civilized than Dimmit County. Yeah, right!

Looking forward to the trip.

No printer, I  remember using the address on the form off the GAF website, which has both addresses now that I look  again.  Any way you could check?   If they don't have it I'll cancel the check and write another.

Capt. Little,

The Barracks will be ready but bring BUG spray.  The snakes will be in their holes so as not to bother anyone. The Fire Ants,but thats another story.  We have learned to get along with Them.     Anyone desiring to stay in the Barracks you might want to bring a cot.    We are attempting to install a shower and hope it will be ready.

Oh, boy.....fire ants! If we end up camping(modern tent), what do we need to bring to defend our campsite against these critters? Anything we can spray around the perimiter to repel them?

Pony Express,  Just get a can of ant spray and spray a perimeter around your tent or get a bag of the newest Diazanon replacement and sprinkle it around the tent then soak with some water. Fire ants don't normally bother you unless you set-up on their home or a pathway.

Scooter,  Don't recall if the General is going to be at hand. Have you received a definitive statement?
