I have had this piece of land for a half dozen years now. My Dad and I bought it, it sits on a rise above Lake Amistad. In fact it is a quiet little part of the lake where you can go canoeing without the risk of being run over by some drunken idiot. I never did anything to it, but I got a great deal on a nice camper trailer and I am thinking about leaving it up there. I am at choosetexaspower.org trying to figure out how hard it is to get the electricity turned on there, although I am not sure that I need a lot of power. I do not go up there with a boat load of appliances. I have the grill, one of those tiny ones the size of a big frying pan and that is what I cook with. The camper trailer has a little kitchenette, but I do not really need the stove all that much.
In fact the whole idea came from this one time this summer when we went up there and got rained on for the entire time that we were down there. You have your tent and your car, we have this old station wagon that we go camping in. You do not plan on spending the entire time cooped up in a four man tent or in your car. In fact I sleep under the stars if the weather permits. So I decided that I would look for some inexpensive little thing. Of course I am a bit worried about leaving it up there. You can probably put a burglar alarm on it. I would guess that it would have to be hooked up to a cellular phone connection, but I know that they have those for sale.Start Reading More
