385 and Panther Dr, Big Bend, TX
THE RSVP LIST IS NOW CLOSED. I WILL NOW ONLY LET IN PEOPLE IF OUR YES RSVP IN THE TX GROUP FALLS BELOW 12 AND THAT I THINK IS UNLIKELY. SORRY BUT THE CAMPSITE SPACE FOR TENTS IS VERY LIMITED.
TEXAS HAS ONLY TWO NATIONAL PARKS AND IT'S THE HOUSTON HIKING GROUP'S TRADITION TO DO ONE OF THEM PER YEAR. BART & MORE HIKERS ARE WELCOME TO JOIN IN IF INTERESTED.
HIKES WILL HAVE SEPARATE POSTINGS (SEE THE LIST BELOW). YOU DON'T HAVE TO CAMP WITH US TO DO THE HIKES AND SO YOU CAN TRY TO FIND YOUR OWN ACCOMMODATION IF POSSIBLE AND THEN DRIVE OVER TO JOIN US ON THE HIKES.
This is being co-posted with the TX group: CLICK HERE. If flying in (probably Midland-3hrs or El Paso-5hrs) then check with them also for car-rental pooling possibilities if some of them happen to be flying also. Just post you interest in the comments box for each post. As for me, I'll be driving from Houston on Friday afternoon at 4PM, March 14, and staying one night in San Antonio before taking off the next morning ~5AM. Let me know if you want to caravan with me.
PLEASE BRING ONLY SMALL TENTS. MEDIUM SIZE ONES ARE OK IF SHARING WITH MULTIPLE PEOPLE. INDICATE IN THE RSVP OR COMMENTS LINES IF SHARING A TENT, OTHERWISE I WILL ASSUME YOU'RE IN AN INDIVIDUAL SMALL TENT.
For questions send me an email but if you have more urgent inquiries call me at my cell # at[masked]-1976.

The CAMPSITE: I reserved Chisos Basin group campsite Q. The limit is for 20 people but I may end up admitting less if people do not share tents. No showers near our campsite but there is one at the Rio Grande site. We can do a shower trip at least on one of the days.
CAMPSITE COSTS: It's $108 fro the site total. So if 10 people show up it will be 11$/person for the trip plus your park entrance fee per car and your personal food and transportation costs.
FOOD: I am planning to eat at the local lodge restaurant for all meals. I suggest that carpools organize their own meal plans.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
