Comanche Campout 2009

Can’t remember if this is my third or fourth year to attend the Comanche Campout. Anyway it’s lots of fun and I always have a great time.

Day 1 Friday:
Sherri and I headed out of Houston Friday afternoon around 1:00 PM. We stopped in Katy to have brunch at Snappy’s Cafe & Grill. Always a great breakfast!
After a great brunch we headed West on I-10 to Sealy and took the back road the rest of the way to Smithville at our hotel Americas Best Value Inn. No we did not campout, maybe next year.
After checking in we ran over to the campsite in Buescher State Park where Comanche Campout was being held. We said hello to everyone and had some white chili for dinner with the Cypress Creek SCRC.
After eating some great chili and visiting with friends, we called it an early night (10:00 PM) and we headed back to the hotel.
Day 2 Saturday:
We woke up late and headed over to the campsite to get the details for the Scavenger Hunt. We got our list and headed out and immediately got turned around and end up back at the park entrance. We were hungry so we headed to the cafe (Elm Creek Cafe) on the Scavenger Hunt list. Both of us had the Chicken Fried Steak, we should have shared one plate. It was huge and a great Chicken Fried Steak.
If you are ever in the Giddings area, the Elm Creek Cafe is a
must stop and come hungry!
After stuffing our selfs we followed the Scavenger Hunt map back through Giddings to the Court House to find stuff on the list. We went down highway 71 to La Grange and stopped for gas. We collected some more stuff and found out that we were running out of time and we had to be back to the Campsite by 4:00 PM.
We made it back to the Campsite at 4:10 PM and tuned in our small finding. We did not win, but we had a great time riding around the country side Scavenging. Headed back out to the hotel to rest and get cleaned up before the party later that night.
After our short break we headed back to the Campsite had some gumbo for dinner with the Cypress Creek SCRC. Great gumbo!
The costume party started at 8:00 PM, great costumes this year.
My favorite was Kill Santa, dressed up as Elfs that had santa’s head in a shopping bag and yes they won the costumes contest. No, Sherri and I did not dress up this year.
The party continue on all night and we headed back to the hotel around 1:30 AM.

Day 3 Sunday:
Head over to the Campsite around 9:00 AM for the group photo. We had a small breakfast and helped with the packing and clean up. After saying our good byes, headed back to the hotel and packed up our gear, checked out of the hotel and headed down the street to downtown Smithville for some lunch at the Pocket Grill. We had there hamburgers which were good.
After lunch we headed back home through the country side back home to Houston.
The weather was great for the weekend and I had a great time. Put some more miles on the wonderful new Victory Vision.

    It's great to have a close group of friends like this to enjoy campfires and riding with…I haven't done something like this in years…seems lone wolf riding has it drawbacks…Group activities like this one is something I seem to be lacking.Your three days sound like the doctor's orders for me!
