Terlingua Dreams

Down to the wire

My back is feeling much better.  It is over whelming all the stuff I need to take and the limited space I have to do so.  No sense crying over my camping van Terlita, have to concentrate on the vehicle I have to work with.

Today I concentrated on the vital things I have to take such as water, beer, and shelter.  Tried out a lot of combinations using empty beer cartons and water jugs and finally came up with a workable combination. The problem is that I still have to take a bunch of other stuff such as clothes, toiletries, shoes, folding table, chairs, tent shower, coolers and miscellaneous items.

My tent and my little 3 day ice chest
Weather report is saying it is going to be cold for the next couple of days and Tffnguy was also nice enough to give me the heads up on the weather.  If you are a virgin going to the cook-off bring plenty of warm as well as hot weather clothing...remember it is Texas and the weather changes at the drop of a hat.

Have I convinced anyone to attend this year?  If so please drop by and I will treat you to a beer or two.

The only black cloud of my trip is leaving Walter at the mercy of his owners.  I went to visit him this morning like I do every morning and noticed his water barrel was empty and downed.  Fed and watered him.  This afternoon I went to check up on him again and noticed they had filled his water barrel but no signs they fed him...so fed him again :-(

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


  1. TY for the update on Walter! Just told my son i don't watch that animal police on tv,,too much cruelty.
    Each his own, i know, but there's just no way i could ever enjoy something like that chili cook off. NOT a camper. We had em here, but just for the day, and lots of shade. Now, they were fun.

  2. MsB, ya'll have fun out there, and try to take care of the 'rookies', they need the help!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you.
