Headed to Post for some muddin'

This is gonna be fun. Woke up to rain this morning, so I have faith I'll get to do some muddin' this afternoon. Those Post trails fill up pretty quick from what I remember even with just a little rain.

Not gonna tackle anything too hard this trip. Just a mile down a private sand ranch road with two known water crossings when there's runoff. Only one problem still.




Don't think I've got enough ponies in that rig, so we're taking this instead.




Loaded with 2 adults, 3 kids, and probably 200 lbs of camping gear in the trunk we should be about 400 lbs overweight. At least I know if we get stuck there'll be a boy scout or two that'll come along and help us out. I'm gonna wear my new Texas4x4 t-shirt though and will have my camera handy. Hopefully it'll make somebody's day.

Too muddy... missed my truck

Well, we're back. We were fortunate enough to avoid driving in the rain. Left Lubbock early enough to get to camp and set up, broke camp today with cloudy but dry skies. The little Mazda didn't have to test it's mud legs a bit. Was quite surprised at our new family tent though. It stood up to pea sized hail, pounding rain for over 3 hours, and driving winds that couldn't make up their mind what direction they were going. Most everyone gave up or was forced out Friday night by 9. We were the only ones left last night. I'm pretty proud of my little scouts, they didn't let the weather get them down and had a lot of fun.


Lots of action in the mud, but most of it involved kids sliding up and down hills... no cars except for this guy in his Lexus.




He slid off the road and into a culvert on the far side. He was giving it hell trying to keep from losing it, but we couldn't even walk the road. Ended up taking a tractor and a f-350 4x4 to get him out. I was too busy helping out to run the camera.

It's a 3 room dome tent by SwissGear. 16x10 Wallyworld special.




Got it at the end of last season where someone had marked it as a closeout. I asked the guys in sporting goods about it 3 different times and they'd assured me it was $79. Got to the register and they wanted $98. The manager looked it up and said he'd get it to us for that, so I couldn't complain a bit.

Don't know how its going hold up over time, but we plan toput it through the paces in the next few months. Two more trips to Post, a trip to Caprock Canyons, 4th of July at an undetermined lake, and then the kids are going to use it as a spare bedroom at Grandma's while we move her residence to Brownwood and set up the deer lease.

Never been to caprock canyons, but the kids are tired of Palo Duro, so we thought we'd give it a shot...
