One new owner who has his unit on order has registered. He expects his trailer to be delivered before the rally. The factory will not have a demo there.


Will there be any of the new Oliver trailers there?

Due to several cancellations, we've cleared everyone on the waiting list for the park and have four openings at the moment. Unfortunately, plans change. I appreciate the fact that those who's plans have changed have notified us in a timely manor so others may take their place.

For those that are going to attend Bluebonnet and are from Houston or coming from the East and may be going to arrive on Monday, a few of us are planning to meet Monday at 10:00 am at Camping World West of Houston at mile post 737. We plan to shove off from there at 10:30 am and then stop at a very nice rest area just East of Seguin at mile post 622 and have lunch.

We've had several cancellations due to health, work related issues, and unfortunately one vehicle accident. So, if anyone who would like to attend has not registered, please do so and join us in Bandera. There is no waiting list for the RV park. I'm guessing we have around 1/3 of the rigs here already.

Wow, this sounds like it will be a terrific event! After visiting with Pete & Sharon in Gila Bend, AZ we hoped to attend, but there are just too many miles (and gallons of gas!) between the California coast & Bandera. Have tons of fun and we look forward to participating in this rally in the future. Regards - L 'n D

Well, just a 'hey' and to say I do believe this one beat last year's! It was so nice to have several first-timers around us and I do hope they frequent the fgrv site now. All were new Casita owners,fun loving and good humored! I hope we made a good enough impression on them for them to return!
Thanks to all who did the behind the scenes work as I know it is a big job and we all appreciate it! Thanks to Beverly with the craft hat band project! Took a while to get us in the groove, but it sure looked fancy when we finished!
Let me know if anybody wants the Shanghai Jimmy's Chili Rice casserole recipe. It's a bit involved, but I thought turned out tasting like I remember from the old days in Dallas in the 80s.
PS: I have a small connection where we might get to have a visit/mini song or two --or a reading from his latest book and book signing--next time by Kinky Friedman if interest is there. It's always iffy with Kinky, but hey, askin's free.

Wow, sounds like you-all had a great time! We couldn't be there, but Shanghai Jimmy's Chili Rice Casserole sounds too good to miss. Might it be possible to post the recipe in the "Recipes" thread here on our wunnerful forum - puleeeze?
If so, thanx in advance, LdB
