Just a comment - I spent 20 years at Fort Hood, I think that close to Tyler, greatest memories in my life, beautiful area of country and not near Dallas and Houston. I also served at Yuma, I roamed, primitive camped and hunted from Yuma to Quartzite, to Wickenburg to Gila Bend. That desert is amazing. One of the few places I could hang out in a Saguaro "forest", come across graves and turquoise mines. Not see another person for days. +1 to Bum on this issue. If the rally isn't for you start your own. I have been to numerous rally's and kids were there, , never brought mine, we're all to old:)

+1 Every part of North America has qualities worthy of a visit. There is always more to see and do, and interesting people to meet. And everyone has a different experience they want to get from camping. If we all wanted to go to the same places and experience the same things those places would be uninhabitable.

I dunno man....we camp about 500 feet from the Magic Circle: 75 acres of Federal Land set aside as clothing optional.

Scenery? Yep. Best scenery? Well it depends on your expectations.

Clothing optional is not the kind of scenery I was thinking about. Tongue

Texas does actually have scenery. Big Bend has some pretty impressive mountains and the Hill Country is nice too. There's also the Davis Mountains, which I'd like to visit sometime to check out the astronomical observatory there.

East Texas has lots of pine forest area.

You left out Palo Duro Canyon and Caprock Canyons up here in the Panhandle. Plus there is Lake Meredith (free!) and Buffalo Springs Lake. Lake MacKenzie, White River Lake, Lake Allan Henry are a few others. 

All of these are in scenic areas, and Caprock Canyons has a large Bison herd that roams the park.

Occasionally they will meander right thru your campsite. THAT will get your attention!

I can't wait to attend this. We just got our R-Pod and we're still planning trip so, we're all booked, but I'm hoping next year will be a good fit.

Are you in the Facebook R-Pod Owners group? If so, please let my DW (Donna Somers) know your site number so she can update the attendees list. If not, let me know and I can relay it to her.
