Getting conflicting info on camping.....

From the DBBB FAQ:

Is camping allowed?
Camping is tolerated this time of year though the only facilities available will be from those that have motor homes and travel trailers. You can always bum a shower from someone that has a motel room though. Be prepared for violent storms. They're not unusual this time of year and you may decide to check into a motel for a night or two.

The Texas Campsite Reservation system still shows tent sites.

This was posted last year:

Making some changes

We are making some changes to the event this year. The city of Galveston is not allowing camping out at slp so the pre-event has been moved to east beach. Come and join us at east beach for the pre-event and the event.

The restriction doesn't seem to exist this year, but the Pre-Event and Main Event are still on the East Beach which is on the other side of the island from the camping sites.

There are many hotels on the island. Do a google search. As for camping. There is a core group of us that will be camping on east beach for the duration of the event so if you want to go that route please join us on the beach. I will be camping on the beach. There is always a chance of a cold front passing through and the weather could change very fast.

This year the pre-event and the event itself will be on east beach.

The Sandpiper was the closest one, but I thought it got taken out by Ike. I've been told that the Super 8 is pretty good.

I'll be camping on the beach too. That's the best way to go if you don't mind having no facilities. If a front is forcast to come through during the event, pitch your tent on a high spot and anchor it down well.

I have a tent.. and know how to use it.

But this is the song that reminds me of my friend...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aepkGE6qI2k&feature=relat...

For anyone wanting to tent camp, just get the longest tent stakes you can find... winds are normally ok, but sometimes a cold front passes through and gusts can be pretty high with winds in the 30's and gusts that are higher. Usually it's 10-15 consistently... but I have camped with some pretty severe weather at times....

But if your going to camp, everyone there will do their best to make sure you are safe and have a wonderful time.




What do you do with your foils?

Charger 8, 12, 19
Scorpion 10, 16
And other foils...

I'm still kinda hoping that this year we might have a porta potty?! Anyhow - I will bring poles and a blue tarp just in case. Anybody have a seat we can cover the hole with?

On the boat we have a device we call the special bucket. Its a 5 gallon pail that we keep on the back deck for special occasions. I think I have an extra one at home that you can have..It really works best if you leave the top on and cut a hole in it so you have a wide rim but beggars cant be .... If you have a disposal area you could use it giving you more support and control then take it away to dump it..or have a good friend to take care of it for you.
