March Roadtrip

Well i've been back in civilation for a week now and I'm ready for another trip, so its time to start planning for our next RockandRollRoadtrip.

March's trip will be to Seminole Canyon State Park, Texas.
I'm thinking the 3rd weekend again, which coincides with the first day of Spring. According to mapquest.com it is 458 miles from Dallas to Comstock, Tx, so I'm thinking it will take anywhere from 7 - 9 hours, depending on stops, speeding tickets, wildlife in the road, train xings, etc. This is a longer trip, so I propose we leave Thursday night the 17th and return Monday the 21st. There is no gate at this park so it doesnt matter when we arrive. I propose we leave around 8pm or so and we can drive all night, hopefully arriving right around dawn. In my experience its really cool arriving at a park right around dawn, you can watch the sun come up and catch the wildlife either returning home to go to bed or venturing out for some breakfast. Departure time is certainly up for debate.
Activities at this park include camping, cooking, hiking, biking, and tours of the ancient indian dwellings containing pictographs thousands of years old. Fate Bell Shelter, in the canyon, contains some of North America's oldest Indian pictographs and is one of the oldest cave dwellings in North America. Of course, just plain relaxing and enjoying nature will be the main activity for the weekend.

Heres the proposed menu for the week, let me know if you have any special requests:
Dinner: steak, ribs, chicken, mac & cheese, brauts,
Lunch: fajitas, sandwich stuff,
Breakfast: breakfast bars, eggs, sausage, bacon,
As always, fruit, veggies, potatoes, beans, and smores stuff will be available with every meal.
