The plan is to ride the Trammel Crossing Trail the morning, return to camp for lunch, and then visit Fredericksburg that afternoon. If there is no concert scheduled, we will be heading to the Luckenbach Dance Hall for the evening.

Saturday, June 22nd

Saturday will be our major ride day. We will ride Madrone, Juniper Ridge, East Boundary and Wolf Mt. trails. Ride participation will be based on skills, especially when it comes to Juniper Ridge. Personally, Bruce feels Juniper is an advanced intermediate to expert-level trail, and has knick-named it Satan's Sidewalk due to of all the roots and rocks.

Sunday, June 23rd

Sunday, we have breakfast, break camp and drive back home.

CAMPSITE RESERVATION

Bruce has Site-063 reserved which is across the street from the showers and restrooms. While the trailer has a bathroom, the holding tanks do not have the capacity to accommodate the entire weekend. Showers and daytime restroom use should be with the Park showers and restrooms. The only exception is the bathroom in the trailer may be used late at night during sleeping hours, so folks do not have to venture out to use the restroom.

We check in at 2:00 PM and set up camp and prepare for dinner. Check out will be by noon on Sunday. We will break camp Sunday morning after breakfast and be packed and out by noon on Sunday. That will get us back to Dallas later in the afternoon on Sunday.

CAMPING EQUIPMENT

The campsite Bruce has reserved which is permitted the trailer, 2 tents and up to 8 persons. The travel trailer sleeps 7. Bedding is carried in the trailer. The trailer also carries a tent which is used when needed. The tent has a queen-sized air mattress for 2 as well as a comforter and sheets and pillows. If someone brings a second tent, they will need to bring a tent pad, air mattresses and bedding.

The trailer also carries a full outdoor kitchen with multiple stoves, a gas grill, pots, pans and cooking utensils. There is also a refrigerator, gas stove and microwave in the trailer.

MEAL PLANNING

The main meals are a group event. Everyone helps with the preparation and cleanup.

A menu covering breakfast, lunch and dinner each day will be developed and socialized with the group. Bruce, and anyone that would like to help with the grocery shopping, will buy provisions a day or two before departure. Everyone chips in for their share of the cost for the food and campsite fee. This is typically about $50-$60 per person for the entire weekend.

Snacks are not included in the main meal plan. Instead, everyone brings their own favorite after noon and after dinner snacks with a little extra to share. Everyone also their own “adult beverages”. The State Parks have an open container prohibition regarding alcohol, so plan on using a stealth Red Solo cup for your adult beverages.

MENU
(Typical of what we normally have, but not yet final. Need the group's input before finalizing)

Wednesday, June 19th

Everyone should have had lunch by the 2:00 PM check in time on the trip down,  so lunch is not planned. Since this will be a “travel & set-up” day, most of us will be tired and not want to prepare a major meal. Dinner will be quick and easy.
