I wasn't unhappy with the 4+ miles from Camp Tejas. Since I was packed quite a bit lighter than you guys, it only took me about an hour to get back from the site. I'm a bit sore today, but I'm outta shape, so I fully expected that.
It was great to meet Glitch20, and hang out with Spamity & Barr a bit. Got a much better idea of what I am looking for gear-wise, too.
Which reminds me - Glitch, send me a list of what you've got for sale, and I'll figure out what I'd like to snag.

Special thanks to Glitch20 - as my son and I are now started on gear. Sorry you didn't feel well and couldn't stay another night. I've got the other $25 I owe ya, too, Glitch. More than happy to get it to you during the week, as you like.
I'm becoming a bit more comfortable when heading out. We'll pick up more gear a little at a time. Next item is definitely a proper backpack, but I'm absolutely going to hit the dollar store at Helix's suggestion, too. Lots of easy purchases there.
Helix - it was cool to meet you & your kids! I'm sure we'll be heading out there again in the near future - perhaps as a day hike, as my wife and daughter expressed some interest once we got back. And my son and I will certainly be camping out that way again, at a minimum. Please do give me the model # or name for your pack. I think I will pick that one up as my next big piece of gear. And I'm all ears on learning how to hunt.
CheckTheBackSeat - It was good to hang out with you & yours, as well. I think between the food & the firewood, you guys kept us running the most! You certainly came in packing the most! hahahahha
And Spamity, of course - hats off for organizing this. We had a blast! Keep up the good work.
I'm definitely up for a burger night or something like that, too. Who knows - maybe there's interest in a regular movie/poker/games night? Food for thought.
So now, between the camping & all the gardening I did when we got home, I'm beat. Gnite all!
