Hell, I don't know who approves my trip requests as I usually approve others trip requests.  Who ever approves it isn't going to like it one bit, very short on details.

I'm going to BIBE, to the Basin, establish a base camp, do some overnight hiking in the High Chisos and that's all I know.  Might make a run down the river road from West to East to end up at the Hot Springs at the end of the day.  Probably be at the Hot Springs every night we are not backpacking.  I'm leaving Friday and coming back sometime before Memorial Day, maybe.  A lot will depend on the weather.  Probably be warm up top and hotter than blue blazes down below.

APPROVED

Although, I must say, for someone who loves to plan every single thingamabobber..... it does sound pretty improvisational?

You're really getting into that Terlingua time now, BABY! YEAH BABY! :mrgreen:

Gracias for the approval Muse.  I'll bring my Jr. Ranger Badge so I can get into all the areas that say "Authorized Persons Only".    I've always wanted a shirt that says "Authorized Person - Admit All Areas".

Our best intentions are to be @ the Basin Saturday mid-afternoon the 20th.  We will be "somewhere" until the Sat/Sun before Memorial Day.  Can't say for sure where we will be at the end of the trip, we've been known to pack up and head somewhere else - like Balmorhea.  I do know that I'll be home on Memorial Day as I don't want to fight the hordes of travelers, but with gas so high, might not be too many on the roads.  I figure I'm going to need about 70 gallons to get there, burn another 50 gallons there, and another 70 gallons home.  Of course, it's my fault that I'm driving a UUV towing a trailer.  I did cross the $80 threshold this last weekend on a fillup.   :shock:
