 By popular demand, the East Texas Sidecar Muster is back for 2014 - scheduled for May 2-4 at Holly Park Marina on the Texas side of Toledo Bend.

 And back by even greater demand are Friday Evening Tamales by Art & Rosa -- Johnny has volunteered to bring a propane bottle and burner.

 Please make your lodging/RV/camping reservations directly with Holly Park Marina:
   http://www.hollyparkmarina.com  Day Phone: 409-625-4424    Email : info@hollyparkmarina.com

 We will plan a Saturday group ride for lunch at the Pinto Pony in San Augustine.

 The Sale on the Trail Flea Market along Hwy 21 will be the same weekend, so we can stop in Milam -- I need some more blue cornmeal.

 There is no official registration, but please let me know by posting here if you are coming so we can get a head count for Tamales and Lunch.

 Please check back here for occasional updates.

   Excellent! Sure glad you're back up to traveling.  

 The preliminary head count is up to about 32.

 And Hardy requests an additional 5 dozen tamales to purchase.

I am feeling a lot better, not 100% but a lot better than I was. Even not feeling well, we still had a good time. Thank you everyone that helped and offered help, really appreciate it.

Sure glad you're feeling better and made it home safely. You're a determined fellow - I would have preferred you take an extra day to regain some strength.

 I suspect Paula had a big influence on bringing Toledo home - he followed her around the campground all weekend.  Toledo seems to be of good temperment, not fussing with people, dogs or vehicles.  By Sunday morning he & Paula were big friends:

Yep, we had a good time for sure. Weather was ideal, the group rides went smooth, the food was great and the fellowship even better. Lots of stories were exchanged and laughter was heard throughout the campground. Enough talk, let's show some pics.

About a dozen of us met up at the recently re-opened restaurant at Huxley Bay Marina on Friday morning. Jena & I were the first to arrive - checking to see if the restaurant truly was open for business:

The group from the campground arrived shortly thereafter, led by Avenell on her scooter rig - she assured me she rode slow enough for the gang to stay with her Laughing:

Followed by J.R.  on the Texas Shark:

And Judy on her gorgeous Ural Retro:

And George on his Ural - Happy, Benji & Buddy are all hunkered down in the sidecar for the ride, follow closely by Lloyd & Judy on their well-traveled Goldwing/Hannigan rig:

Then arrived James on the Cajun Queen (that's Oldtimer sneaking in behind 'em in the motorhome):

Trailed by George & Aurora on their widely recognized Triumph Union Jack'ed rig:

We all enjoyed a good brunch:

After lunch James, Aurora, George & I took the short-cut back to camp along the gravel roads thru the Sabine National Forest:

After settling in at Holly Park, several of us ventured out to explore Nine Mile Road on the peninsula across the bridge. It was a great ride until we encountered a locked gate just a mile into the ride. Our exploring stopped short here:

On a bluff overlooking Toledo Bend Reservoir:

So we ventured to the southern tip of the peninsula to swap a few tales over this expansive view of mid-lake and the Pendleton Bridge, including a resting flock of white pelicans 100+/- miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico:

Upon return to camp we found Art & Rosa, joined by daughter Paula, preparing the tamales for the evening feast. Here's Art supervising Paula preparing the steamer - watched by prospective sidecarist Mike of Louisiana, who's never far from the food:

Of course, Tahobiker was first in line to select from the mild or spicy :pot: beans and mild or spicy :hot: tamales - your choice of chicken, bean or pork -there're all good, it's just a matter of personal preference :hungry: :

There was quite a crowd by the time supper was served:

A great big THANK YOU to Rosa, Art & Paula for the tamales & beans - plus Saturday's corn-on-the-cob and guacamole :bow: :clap: :boogie: :cheers::

Many of us started off Saturday morning  down at the local church hosting a fundraiser breakfast - now these ladies & gentleman know how to start the day - eggs, bacon, biscuits, gravy, blueberry pancakes ......:

I didn't take any photos of our group ride to the Sale on the Trail in Milam where I made a beeline to replenish our supply of blue cornmeal for blue cornbread - unfortunately, the Galloway engine was down for repairs:

After looking thru the vendors, buying raffle tickets for a Henry Golden Boy .22LR and buying various trinkets, we rode over the downtown San Augustine for lunch at the Pinto Pony:

Where we found more good grub - Oldtimer's club sandwich, for example:

After lunch several of us ran errands to the auto parts and/or grocery stores, while Corkie settled in the shade along with Happy, Benji & Buddy in Tahobiker's rig parked on right on the sidewalk to find shade for the pups:

Before we left Sunday morning, James tried out his canoe while watching some very active bass work the shoreline vegetation - a mature bald eagle flew over just after I snapped this pic:

And Paula worked on bonding with Toledo while she walked the campground Cool:

From the Pinto Pony Cookie Factory & Restaurant via email today:

We wanted to thank you and your members for having lunch with us Saturday.  It was  nice to see everyone having a good time.  Everyone I asked said they enjoyed their food.  We would love to have you back again next year.  We appreciate your continued support.  If we can help you any other time of the year just let us know.
Thanks again,
