Here is some pertinent info - sometimes we forget about new people.

Meet will be at Ratcliff Lake Recreation area Camp Site #28
This is CAR camping - bring anything you want. There is electric and water. We will be a short walk from shower facilities and working toilets. IT WILL BE HOT and/or RAINNING. Sometimes both at the same time.

Spot #28 will support 8 campers and two cars(one of which is mine). If you are the third or later vehicle you will need to go back to the gate to pay your daily use fee

Current head count is close to the 8 person limit, so an additional site might be needed. Reservation can be made online.

Plan for you Own meals. But be prepared to take them home, as there is usually an excellent evening community meal provided by Jeffro at least one night. Other meals are on you, although Breakfast is usually a community thing. YoungBlacksmith make excellent breakfast tacos.

OK, cross posted on BCUSA, see if we get some from there.

Right now head count is a 5 - 6 maybe.

Julie will be in Houston, so if I attend I will have my 10 and 7 year old girls with me as well. Is there swimming at the lake? I can't remember.

I just booked site 27, across the road and down a few feet, for anyone needing overflow. It'll be my girls and I on the tent pad, but trees should be free for hanging around. I hope to show up mid morning and relax/hike/swim until we leave on Sunday around noon.
