    No, i'm rich so money isnt an object. Ok truth is i'm totally poor but i really enjoy camping out there. I personally think it enriches the experience.
    Ya'll don't know what it's like
    being male, middle class and white.

    camping out there is part of the whole desert experience, you're right Tony. I'm torn because it was kinda nice to have the house even if I did sleep in the closet.

    There's pros and cons to both. Having the house gave us nicer bathrooms and showers and an oven for cooking. It was nice having the refrigerator, too. I also liked that the bikes were locked in the garage when we went out to dinner.
    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, donít bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.

    I'm sure it does and camping is an enjoyable experience. John makes some very good points though as well. Personally I have spent many nights under the stars and enjoyed them, if I'm spending 3 or 4 days riding I like the amenities that the condo offers.

    Camping is fun, but luxury can be fun, too. All I need is this remote control, and this chair, and this paddle game.........

    Some camp, some in the condo, all camping, none camping, whatever we decide, it's all good to me. I just need to know in advance whether there is sufficient head count to keep the reservation on the villa.

    I got burned at HHH with cancellations after the August 1 deadline and ended up eating $450 in unused motel rooms. I will NOT be making that mistake twice.

    The city of Fort Stockton recently outlawed the use of plastic bags in the entire city… so if you’re planning to stop and do some shopping while you are there, one option is to bring reusable bags with you to carry groceries or ect. in.

    Highly recommend the villa...

    The amenities in Terlingua are spartan.

    You should probably all just go west to Lajitas and bask in the lap of luxury, which is what anyone visiting Big Bend really wants, isn't it?

    Whatever you do, don't camp at The Boathouse. It's just awful there with the chintzy canvas tents, somewhat hot showers & dank barroom just a few steps from the campsite.

    Is it February yet?

    New rule..or one that was forgotten. If you say your in you pay regardless. Just seems right.

    The boathouse? more like the frickin' shithouse if you ask me. A big shithouse set ablaze. Fuckin' beer bottles everywhere, people yelling shit all night ("I'll tell you one thing..."), stumbling around looking for a sweat lodge. It really just sucks your soul right out of you.
