Here's a trivia question: On a single lane road, when two vehicles meet, one has to back up (assuming there is no room to pass). Who has the right of way (and why)?

If they are in Texas, the bigger one has the right of way. Dirt roads to freeways..... :icon_biggrin:

There's an element of truth to that but practically the vehicle which has easiest way to pull over usually yields.

I believe tonnage rights solves the problem.

The park seems to be pretty full that weekend so all suggestions/tips/ideas/input/whatever! are all valued as I may need a back up to my back ups back ups back up plan lol.


Backups to your backups:
Croton Springs (take both sites)
Grapevine Hills 1, or 2 and 3, or 4 and 5 (1 is the easiest since it's really close to the main road)
Paint Gap 2 and 3
Nine Point Draw
Hannold Draw

You might want to camp at Cottonwood for a night if you're headed to that side of the park anyway. RGV is my least favorite place to camp.
