      Update from Texas Assn of Campground Owners re: Evacuees   08/28/17

      Good morning, There are now at least 18 privately owned and operated campgrounds and RV parks across Texas that are accepting evacuees. The attached news release, updated from the one the association issued yesterday, includes the names and contact info for the parks. Consumers can also do their own research to identify parks with RV spaces and rental cabins at www.TexasCampgrounds.com and www.TexasCabinRentals.net. Please contact Brian Schaeffer, executive director and CEO of the Texas Association of Campground Owners, on his cell phone at (817) 307-0129 for any questions. We will continue to update this release over the weekend based on the feedback we receive from campgrounds and RV parks across Texas. Many thanks for including our information in your reports yesterday. We appreciate it. Sincerely, Jeff Crider

Whats Cooking, Who Is Where, Off The Subject & Memories

Sounds like a New Year's mini rally somewhere. Would love to help put something together. 

One problem,  if I am elected we have to be in Beaumont January 3rd for meeting. 

But we all need to get together sometime somewhere.

Well, my ribs came out just as W BILL's lunch plate, 3 hours at 260.  Turned out to be 6 eating since 2 had to go elsewhere (they invited 2 more and Linda told them to find a restaurant) !  She don't play that game, I don't either, unless we know you! :angry:  Sorry, but I forgot to take a picture...normally don't, unless it's a whole BBQ! :)

Herman, change in plans....unanimous vote last night at the dinner table (I learned years ago, just nod and roll with it). We are headed to New Mexico around June 15th 2018. DW wants to go to Roswell :o youngest has some stuff she wanted to see there also. So we will be coming across I-40 from TN hopping on and off I-40 sightseeing. This will be a good time to catch up with you guys. Since we will have some free time any campground recommendations where you guys might be parked Ill take to the governing board for approval :lol::ph34r:. DW is working on the details this week.

Sounds like a good time to head for Reidosa. Reidosa in just west of Roswell. Will. Look at timing for Gillette. 

Will see Carl & Linda in Texarkana and talk about it.

There is also a very "comfortable" campground at the Casino there in Ruidoso.  I don't remember if it was free or just cheap but it worked for us.  Stopped there for a few days after the stupid stop in Roswell.  The campground in Roswell was convenient and an easy in and out, however.

Campground at Casino.

Which one, Inn of the Gods or Billy the Kid?  Circle B is close to the latter at $35 full H/U...really nice place...didn't know there was one at the Casino/s!  Where Joe comes from, you don't go near a Campground that's less than $95...Boy, is he in for a learning experience! :lol:  Roswell is difficult at best...:P

Since food is under this topic, if you like catfish, I use the old yellow mustard, which I hate any other way, mix the mustard 50/50 with water, dip the catfish in this before using corn meal of your favorite batter, then fry. Very interesting and palatable combination.B)

Kay.  Have had it that way & yes, very tasty!  I dip mine in a egg/milk bath, then in fine stone ground corn flour.  Imparts a slightly sweet flavor, do the same with soft shell blue crabs and shrimp!  Last batch of each I did was in Kaplan, LA....now I'm having a tough time finding corn flour in the Kaplan/Abbeville area! :blink:

I learned the mustard trick many years ago visiting friends in Abbeville, LA.  They use this on "sac-a-lait", the fish that we know as white perch or crappie. Delicious.

Bill, apparently you found your spell check again.:ph34r:

We will be leaving Lubbock and stopping at Ft Sumner to see the Billy the Kid museum around Nov 10 (give or take a day or two). From there going to Las Cruces. Thought about going thru Roswell just to say we did it. That Reidosa Motor ranch looks really good but not at $95 a night. They didn't list the rates on their website so that is never a good thing. I'm sure it's going to be more than I'm willing to pay. I'll call and find out how much it is a night but looks like we might be staying at another one in the area.

Ok, just noticed the Jellystone 20 minutes from us is up to...$146.00 per night and going up for 2018 :o. Crazy part you can't get near the place, it almost always booked solid.

Punxsyjumper.

The motorhome Ranch, with tax is $92.50 a night, that also includes the use of Rainmaker Resort/Spa & Country Club (Private members and guests only) and entry to the Jockey Club at Billy the Kid Race Track (horses) with Valet Parking !

Other Option that I would recommend is Circle B RV Park at Ruidoso Downs!  There is also the Eagle Nest RV Park Resort & Spa off the road to Mt. Apache Ski Area!

Been staying in Ruidoso for 3-6 weeks each year, since 1978..:wub:
