Spring Break 2019 - !!!SPECIAL ALERT!!!
« on: February 20, 2019, 10:16:45 PM »
For Immediate Release...

The United States Bureau of Important Statements has just issued this DIRE WARNING regarding Big Bend National Park for the week of March 10, 2019.  NOTE: this DIRE WARNING is issued at USBS Level 10 (that means you'd better take it like, you know, Seriously?).

Meteorologists, geophysicists, epidemiologists, and other really smart guys employed by the USBS have concluded that the week of March 10, 2019 will be just awful, probably uncomfortable, and possibly life-threatening at Big Bend National Park.  USBS spokespersons George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg have announced a perfect storm of bad meteorology, sad geophysics, and mad epidemiology (not to mention other bad, sad, and mad stuff) for the week of March 10, 2019 for Big Bend National Park.

All this stuff is soooooo baaaaaad that the USBS advises all potential visitors to Big Bend National Park during the week of March 10, 2019 to immediately change plans and go somewhere else (i.e., remain at home, walk the mall, go to Galveston, try Sea World in San Antonio, check the Spring Break madness on South padre, eat at an empty hamburger joint in Austin, or etc.).

Although regretting any changes of plans REQUIRED by this SPECIAL ADVISORY ANNOUNCEMENT, the USBS is pleased to provide this public service with your best interests in mind. 

REPEAT:  avoid Big Bend National Park during the week of March 10, 2019. 
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

NO! Do not go to Galveston! There is a swarm of man/teen eatting sharks expected at that time with the first ever influx of box jellyfish riding electric eels! Do not go to the Galveston area! But after March 18th, Ill be in the Bend, so the waters will be safe at that time

On the other hand, the cops wonít be handing out minor-in-possession citations in Garner Park and on the Frio River.  Iím told by the County that we donít need the revenue this year.

Them's good folks over at the "BS".  Let the simple beware, and stay at the house over Spring Break.

Iím doing my part to keep The Bend depopulated during Spring Break. Iím going to Bandelier. But DONíT follow me there. Theyíre suffering an outbreak of anthrax in between earthquakes.
