Wally’s been bugging me to start planning my SXSW events, so since our cell coverage has been declining, we’ll summarize our remaining stops . . .

  • March 5 – Saddleback Mountain RV Park, Balmorhea, TX (Elevation 3200’)
  • March 6 – South Llano River State Park, Junction, TX (Elevation 1700’)
  • March 7 thru 9 – Inks Lake State Park, Burnet, TX (Elevation 1300’)
  • March 10 thru 19 – Pecan Grove RV Park, Austin, TX (Elevation 500’) – SXSW !!!

We’ll try to get more photos and stuff before we arrive in Austin.

So far we’re going to the

  • Austin Music Awards on Sunday, March 12,
  • a free cocktail hour hosted by Looking Forward with Madison on March 13 (simply an excuse to drink & eat free),
  • KPOP Night Out – I’d really like to see  Yoonmirae and Hyolyn because she’s hot, she sings incredibly, and she’s hot.
  • more coming

In the planning stages . . .

March 20 thru 23 – San Antonio
March 24 thru 31 – Port Aransas

Journey to SXSW – Part 4: A “Mullet” RV Campground

The 4th stop on our way to SXSW . . .

COACHLIGHT INN & RV PARK (Las Cruces, NM / Elevation 3900’)

mullettMULLET Definition – “Business in the Front. Party in the Back”.

We’ve seen several RV parks like the Coachlight Inn — a formal hotel in the front and an RV park in the back.

We love the Coachlight!
