    It was fun being at the San Jacinto Battlegrounds, seeing the ship channel and all the barges and boats. It was hot and humid, typical Houston weather. Very glad I attended. Love the Battleship Texas too.

    Anyone took the bus?

    April 26, 2014

  • Tom P.

    I was just starting to set up a hike here but Curtis beat me to it. A State Parks pass will get up to six free admissions onto the Texas. So if you have one, bring it. If you are thinking about buying one, this is a good time to do so.

    April 8, 2014

    • Tom P.

      Unfortunately my schedule is booked for the weekend. Have fun.

      April 14, 2014

    • Aiping D.

      I have a state park annul pass, will bring it with me.

    April 24, 2014

  • Terence L.

    New to group and fairly new to Houston. Looking forward to the hike. Not trying to put a damper but what is the weather contingency like? i.e. "we're going regardless?"

    April 24, 2014

  • Jodi A.

    I am looking forward to visiting the USS Texas again; my Dad was career Navy and he actually trained on this ship before WWII, and he told me lots of stories about her. I always feel his presence here.

    2 · April 22, 2014

  • Jodi A.

    • Jodi A.

      If you have good, comfortable tennis shoes you can probably get away with those.

      April 21, 2014

    • Cassandra B.

      Thank you both. I lost my tennis shoes in the Canoe Bayou clean up. lol It was time to get a new pair anyways.
