If you summit Crown, please take pic of summit log that's apparently in a jar.  Fritz51(fellow in a group that I socialized with last Spring) wants to see that posted.  Fritz now has a heart condition.

And how long will you be gone?  Are you not still in college - you just can't leave mid week - you have work to do!  Spring break is not for weeks!  Full trip report with pics please and a report on the campsite accessability for a trailer.  Ah, to be a college student again - carefree...

You may have had it pretty "carefree" at SFA, but for me at A&M it was far from carefree.  Pretty hectic with a full schedule and working my way through and all.
By the way Howdy all, Gig em Aggies!!!!

"carefree" at SFA,


Oh, I did my share of all nighters @ SFA and also worked some.  Computer Science and Psychology was no basket weaving course, and I had to slug it through all the math courses and Calculus, which I have yet to ever use again...   :lol:   But, I did my share of nights @ CrossRoads, The Party Center, Cotton Eyed Joes, etc.  Plus, I did my share of spare-of-the-moment road trips!

I decided that further schooling would not benefit me, as I was a singer in a rock n roll band, and was going to get signed to a contract and all.. :lol:

Well I still like to sing, but wish I had da fundage to go back to school now!
 Do ya think Sul Ross would take on this ol gal? I wouldn't mind living in Alpine for a while and driving to the Bender to measure pressure in the Sotol, LOL

You prolly don't have to have a college degree to measure pressure in a Sotol plant.  I think there's a Sotol Pressure Measuring Certificate you can buy on the internet.  But, if you can't find one there, muse, I'll make one fer ya 8)

I bet they would be more than happy to take your money.  Just remember Alpine is a tiny bit smaller than San Antonio, so small there is not even a Wally-World there.  You'd have to drive the Fort Stockton for the Wally-World and it's not even a super Wally-World.  Then, Midland/Odessa would be where you gals would like to shop - maybe.  I'm sure living in Alpine would be nice, I think it's a nice town.  But, to be honest, I'm afraid you/me we'd get there and get caught up in everything locally for rarely make it to the Bend.  When I moved back to East Texas I had grand plans of being on the hiking trails, at the lake, camping all the time - yea, right.  Plus, I tend to imagine the wages are just a little bit lower in Alpine than San Antonio - being a college town and everything.

Don't let anyone fool you that the cost of living might be lower, that's what I thought when I moved back too.  Gas is more expensive here, milk/bread/etc. are all about the same.  Insurance is lower and housing is lower.

Say Hello To Viper!

I think Viper is waving at us?  

Poor Viper, looks like there won't be much star gazing out there.  

I wonder what college students do now days when there are no stars to look at - at night?   :lol:   At least the weather isn't extreme one way or the other.  A nice desert rain is usually welcomed.  

Now, Viper said he and someone else were going out there, and five more were showing up.  So, he and a buddy went out there and five girls showed up :?:   Might be stars all right :!:  (BobCat, I'm sure they all have individual tents and the dorm mom insures that there is no hanky-panky going on).

BUT, it could be really bad, this is why I like to haul most of the provisions, especially the liquor.  Two go camping.  Five more are supposed to show up.  The five more never show up.   :!:    [/img]
