    Big Bend Bash IV - 2/23-26/2017

    The
    Big Bend Bash IV

    Feb 23 thru 26, 2017

    Terlingua, TX

    RSVP for this part of the event


    Camping:
    Rancho Topanga Campground
    We'll be in group area #2 I believe.
    The cost is $10/person per night and I'm assuming 3 nights and 10 people for now.
    They are booking up pretty fast so I'll send them a check to prepay for that many folks
    for that many nights Thur-thru-Sat - leaving Sun.

    If more folks show up they only take cash so we'll see how this works out.

    This is a little different from the previous year's events as I don't have us
    doing any hiking in the Guadalupe Nat'l Park this time.

    However, I might be doing some hiking in Chisos Basin so we'll just see
    who's interested from those that show up at the campground and go from there.

    I know it's your event ...... but, here's a novel idea: Have the Big Bend Bash at Big Bend.

    Even in Texas the mountains are ALWAYS chilly in February seems back in 09 or 10 you split the event to camp at a much warmer Rio Grande Village ????????

    Good suggestion Tom, it has been a while since we've been to that part of the park. I know water is in short supply and probably still a fire ban but should be a few degrees warmer than Ft Davis.

    That was easy ; is my memory failing? I can't find any Big Bend event for 2010 - what did you call it? or was it Motocampers or something? Motomac, Carole, even Dinkie was there ....

    There was one Feb 2007 that I was at...

    But I think there was something there another time... I think we had a server crash in 2007 that zapped data for 2-3 months.

    We have several options for camping (Davis Mtn SP in Ft Davis, Cottonwood and Rio Grande in Big Bend, chisos basin has one but it's usually very full of hikers and there's even a couple RV ones in Study Butte and Terlingua but no experience with them) so as the event gets closer I'll see who's showing up and how many and will ask for a preference.

    Must have been a couple years after 2007, in mine Mac has his handlebar and my motorcycle was a 2010.
    From 2007 ....



    Later .....
