      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

I have this gentleman next to us that when I looked out yesterday (In the driving rain) was taking off the front tire (22.5).

When I first loooked all I saw was him laying under the front of his RV in a puddle. I went out to be sure he was OK and he told me he was going to take off the tires and the brakes because he had just bought the RV a month ago.

We have been sitting in Washington in the rain for 4 weeks with no let up,the ground was soft mud,. I wouldn't have tried this when the ground was dry and we were 30 years younger.

After he removed a tire, he left the rig on the jack and went to bed.

I think he needs a hobby.

Years ago I had a friend who's face looked like he chased parked cars when he was young. Cause: trying to adjust transmission shifter while under a car supported by a jack, on a rain soaked shoulder.

Like Ron White says: You can't fix STUPID.

I remember back in the 70's I was in the Everglades and it was pouring down rain. Since we had been on the road for some 2 months the coach was pretty dirty. I put on my bathing suit and got out the bucket and filled it with water and soap and washed the coach and let the rain rinse it. It came out spot free! My young kids were embaressed.

12/12 Update:

The gentleman I originally spoke of went on to take off all 6 tires and polished the rims then cleaned and greased the axles and undercarrige.

Last I saw him he was just fine and going to play pool. If it had been me I would have had pnumonia.
