Another thing about RV camping: Safety

This past week, I heard an RV campground in Junction TX flooded after a storm. Four people staying in the campground drowned and were found dozens of miles away.

We stayed in Junction prior to our first Yellowstone trip. We wanted to observe any difficulties we might have before turning north into the remote portion of Texas. Despite heavy rain, we didn’t notice any flooding at Junction. We found out later we stayed at the North Llano campground, along the North Llano river. The campground along the South Llano was swept away.

This is a new item in our RV checklist. We always checked weather but weren’t as concerned about the locations because we’d stay away during heavy rain. We now understand if you are already out on the road, that’s not an option. We discovered another campground in San Marcos had suffered a major flood, ruining some RV’s in the park.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
