Gunsmoke, are you on the Sept 15th trip? I am on that trip with 7 friends. Since we are driving from corpus, I was thinking of renting a U-haul trailer to bring all the stuff up and to minimize the number of vehicles (I can just see the looks on everyones faces as we pull in). If we rent a u-haul, there should be plenty of space to store gear. I just have to figure out where we would park.
