Now for something different...

Here is something different for those of you who have stuck with the blog since the beginning and have withstood our ramblings.

In our spare time, well - all of our time has been spare time, but we do try to be productive at times, here is what we have come up with.

1. Goose Island SP, Texas
2. Guadalupe River SP, Texas
3. Seminole SP, Texas
4. Pancho Villa SP, New Mexico
5. Fort Davis, SP, Texas (#5 due to really cold shower room)
Honourable mention - Brantley Lake SP - great staff and view but awful showers.
