      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
      (760) 567-9775 (cell)

I'm looking for an app that allows me to enter my starting point, enter my final destination, how long I want to drive between stops eg. 5-6 hours, and change the route that I want to take. I'd like the app to then map out my trip given those parameters. Is anyone aware of this type of app?

You can do most whatever you want with Google Maps.  Planning works better on a computer than on the phone but it's still great.  It won't do calculate 5-6 hours of driving but you can put in stopping points and it will show the time and distance.  If that is too long or too short remove that and select another stopover in an area you would like to stay.  I plan most of my trips this way but I also revert back to a mapping program last update in 2002 from Rand McNally which does to everything you want.  It really to **** bad that Rand won't re-release this software called TripMaker it is the best planning tool I have ever used to travel.  You can set how fast you drive, when the trip starts and ends, time you leave and time you plan to stop and it keeps a  record of the entire trip.  In my case, my trip starts in Jan and ends in December so I have our entire travels for the entire year on one map.
