So is it just u and me herb :)

treblehook - 5-1-2013 at 10:14 AM

If no one else chimes in, I guess so.
I will bring a 12 x 12 canopy, BBQ pit, some meat to cook, propane stove for beans, ice water.

van - 5-1-2013 at 10:21 AM

I will be there. Please respond if you are coming. VTT (van) and Herb (treblehook) will be sponsoring the food and drinks. Let us know so we can get a good head count.

van - 5-1-2013 at 10:23 AM

Since this is not DBBB , could we have a forum section called LBBB ? Live Bird Buggy Bash .. lots of seagulls we can catch and cook :evil:

kitemaker4 - 5-1-2013 at 01:48 PM

I plan on being there.

Count me in. Which entrance are we meeting at?

van - 5-2-2013 at 05:38 AM

I think it's near or past #6. Look for kites and tents.

centex_buggier - 5-2-2013 at 07:58 AM

I'll be there.

Steve.

van - 5-2-2013 at 09:48 AM

Anybody hear from Joe?? Was wondering if he would be joining us also. We can talk him into making some cobbler!!

Nfish - 5-2-2013 at 11:07 AM

Maybe we should post a link of this thread to the oringal one in the "meet up" section so more people will know. For one, I normally don't check this section very often...

...and I'm still wondering why do we always meet up around the #6 entrance...what's wrong with 1, 2 or 3?

van - 5-2-2013 at 05:26 PM

centex_buggier - 5-3-2013 at 05:45 PM

Joe isn't going to be able to make it. He makes a good cobbler though.

Steve.

Taper123 - 5-4-2013 at 03:16 AM

I plan on making it at least one day of the weekend
:bird:

dylanj423 - 5-4-2013 at 07:42 AM

i might be able to make it down on sunday... its been WAY to long since ive been down...

treblehook - 5-5-2013 at 11:11 AM

Looks like the head count is up to around 12 & a couple -o- maybe . Fajitas for a Saturday evening feed.:D

Sier_Pinski - 5-8-2013 at 06:45 AM

I'm sorry but I won't be able to make it. My family has a trip scheduled for Orlando on that day and we will stay there for the next two weeks.

Txshooter38 - 5-8-2013 at 03:57 PM

Couple questions....I would really like to come but....

Where is everyone staying....hotel? I guess camping is available?

I have a three month old....Are small kids acceptable? He is kind of along for the ride at this point....he survived Moto GP in Austin so I think he is up to it if that does not bother anyone else. Input??

BTW...I cook almost every week end for our friends so I would just need to know what to bring to chip in.

van - 5-8-2013 at 07:36 PM

Most of us are local to houston so we will be driving down with our buggies. I got a one year old so she is learning to walk .. she will be crawling all over the beach.

kitemaker4 - 5-8-2013 at 08:12 PM

Some of us will be camping and also young and old are welcome.

Susan (npw goddess)

treblehook - 5-8-2013 at 09:32 PM

There is lodging in Galveston,30 min drive to the east.
Camping on the beach is primitive,no water no rr. I will have a 12x12 canopy that you can park the young one under.
Cooking: i will bring a BBQ pit to cook fajitas on. If you would like to bring rice and re-fried beans, that would be cool. Van and l will be bringing the beef and chicken,cheese,pico,tortillas,salsa,etc
Just come and hang out and buggy ,good time to be had by all :D

There will be those who camp and sit around the campfire.
Others stay at hotels.

Clute Tx has a good assortment of major hotel chains and is not far at all. Galveston is a lot farther away in comparison, but still within a hour drive. There are some hotels in Surfside Tx that are minutes away as well. (Clute is about 15 minutes, surfside is 5, and Galveston is 45).

I'm only making a day trip from my house... but there is everything from camping to high end resorts within an hour drive...

I've never looked into the Perrigrine Condo's... but if that was in your budget, you could buggy to where everyone camps.

treblehook - 5-14-2013 at 04:44 PM

Only being Tuesday, was hoping the wind prediction stays spot on.
If so should make for a perfect weekend.

I will be down there saturday morning. So is entrance #6 good for everyone as a meeting spot?? I will have my big white tent up. I am hoping to be there before 10am , depending on when I can get the wife and gets up and going.

I will bring drinks , chips, watermelon, and of course the famous grilled pork on a stick.

centex_buggier - 5-16-2013 at 12:03 PM

Sounds like I might be the first one there. I'll set up near #6. U2U me if anyone wants my cell no.


Anyone else camping?

dylanj423 - 5-16-2013 at 12:50 PM

winds look ideal for most of the weekend... onshore and mid-high teens... good for the buggies... i went surfing two days ago and the water is awesome... no need for a suit here :) ...

ill definitely be coming down sunday morning... maybe saturday night if i get to really jonesin...

if there is anything you guys need me to bring down, feel free to call me or text or whatever... van has my number, and im pretty sure steve (centex buggier) does too...

in any case, i look forward to some good beach time on sunday ...

ill be bringing a smoked brisket with me... should be getting down there no later than 11am...

centex_buggier - 5-18-2013 at 07:06 PM

Not sure theres going to be very many people here tomorrow. Only a couple of folks said they were coming back. If the beach is as busy with fisherman as it was today, I might head home early.

dylanj423 - 5-19-2013 at 03:50 PM

looks like ill be eating brisket for a few days.. lol

winds were good today... water was better... bikinis were plentiful ;)

centex_buggier - 5-19-2013 at 08:34 PM

Thanks Van & Herb for a great lunch and dinner on Saturday.
We had perfect onshore winds 15-20mph all weekend. It was good to see everybody.

Steve.

Nfish - 5-20-2013 at 04:16 PM

Yep, it was a great time although I couldn't get on the board in the end...definitely need more practice. Will see you all again at DBBB if not sooner!

Mark.

treblehook - 5-20-2013 at 06:31 PM

@ Steve, your welcome . Great times , good winds, & wind friends...
Don't get no better than that. Wished we had found the long smooth run to
the west earlier in the day . That was a kick.
Big Thanks to Van and family for pork on a stick & ribs.
Till next time

Sier_Pinski - 5-31-2013 at 08:40 PM

Waiting for those photos I asked for awhile ago. :bouncy:

treblehook - 2-19-2014 at 10:45 AM

centex_buggier - 2-28-2014 at 09:55 PM

Steve.

treblehook - 3-1-2014 at 09:13 AM

centex_buggier - 3-1-2014 at 12:56 PM

kitemaker4 - 3-5-2014 at 10:08 AM

Susan (npw goddess)

Nfish - 3-5-2014 at 11:31 PM

van - 4-28-2014 at 07:15 PM

centex_buggier - 4-28-2014 at 07:20 PM

It now looks like I won't make this one.
Have a good time everybody.

Steve.

van - 4-28-2014 at 07:21 PM
