    Hey folks, been on vacation to sunny Florida this last week so been slacking on updates.

    Talked to Debbie at Marble Falls Resort and Restaurant today and their website for room reservations should be up Monday or Tuesday of this week so stand by!

    If you find the website before I let you know its up, be sure to mention the Hillbilly Dual Sport ride to get the rates.

    When it is up to register, there will be place on the form for comments and Debbie would love to hear your suggestions on how to make it a better place for guests.

    Debbie will allow tent camping on the grounds for $15/day and a room will be open for showers!

    You can park an RV in the parking lot but there are no hookups. I forgot to ask how much but will find out.

    There will be some sort of fire pit to sit around in the evening but it probably won't be burning logs..

    Not sure yet if the cafe will be open for us but there is food nearby.

    Hmmm. Ok, I’ll bite. Is this some sort of code? Can’t find any wood to burn? Perhaps there is a burn ban?

    FYI, Shady Oaks Campground is great. Stayed there last year. We had a good group and the grounds are nice.

    Yes its some sort of code..

    Its called a fire code and having burning embers from a log fire pit next to an insured building is highly frowned upon by the insurer.

    I need info about the hub. Rv parking cost. How much room is there. Did they never have camping there in the past? Is this why there is no firepit?

    Should have RV parking cost this week.
    There is PLENTY of RV and tent space.

    I believe a single queen bed room will be $65. A double bed room will be a little higher.

    Yes they have had camping there in the past.

    The fire pit is an insurance issue because of burning embers near the buildings.

    It appears the website is not up yet.
    I tried to contact Debbie, the owner, today but no answer. She is recovering from pneumonia so be patient for a moment.

    No RV hookups, but one time they let me wire into a live wire sticking out of the pavement that used to power the sign. I was careful not to trip it, as no one knew where the breaker was.....it there was one.:D:D:D
    Last year we stayed at Shady Oaks, this year I won't know very far ahead to reserve at Shady Oaks because I just got double knee replacement Wednesday. If I'm up to speed by then I'll just camp in the Hub parking lot and use a generator.

    Marble Falls Resort is the new name..

    I'm assuming the $170 is for two night with two beds @ double occupancy?

    That works out to about $42/per person for each night.

    Marble Falls Resort is just up the hill from and was once part of Dogpatch USA.

    Interesting history in this documentary.

    I just had a good conversation with Debbie , she sounds excited about us coming to hold the Hillbilly run at her place. Said she had just hung up with a Chef and it sounds promising for the cafe to be up and running. And Longtime was correct, the price is $85 per night for 2 adults , 2 Queen beds. Hope y'all will come support this great ride time ! Arkie
