Attention all Houston area skoolies, wannabes and hangers-on with a fun and historical bent!
The Texas Renaissance Festival is near, and the new "quiet family camping area" is looking quite ideal for a bus gathering.
I would like to propose the weekend of Halloween for a mini skoolie gathering at Renfest. (Maybe we can pretend its a precompression event for Skooliepalooza in Quartzite during January?). We can camp in the grasslands, away from the nighttime noise sources, visit the event during the day, and spend some time getting to know each other.
This would be a very family-friendly event, loosely organized, with a "come-and-sit-a-spell-or-just-do-your-own-thing" flavor. If you are not into camping with a hoarde, simply stake-out a piece of turf a few dozen yards away and be a "satellite" camp. Tents, campers, domes, busses... However you roll, its all good with us. There is a huge amount of space and its never crowded in the grasslands.
More info about the event is here: https://texrenfest.com
There are public showers ( $8 ).
There are both "real" flush-type toilets and portos
There is on-site potable water (free) but no RV connections like in a park. Fill-up your tanks when you get there just before you get to the campsite
There is no electrical. Bring your own QUIET power.
There are dump facilities nearby, but not at the event.
Camping is $20 per vehicle, flat fee, regardless of head count
Tickets for the Renfest gate are sold separately.
If you are interested, post! Hope to see you there!
