Plane Crash

Adventure Location: Del Rio, Texas
Adventure Date: 02/27/2018

It has been a busy day with light rain in the morning and bright sun by noon. The OFM was out chasing Internet service at Walmart and Home Depot when he decided that he would just signup for Sprint service it the price was competitive with Verizon.

To shorten the long story, Sprint was a much better price at $50 for 50 Gigs and carry over of any remaining gigs.  So we are now on the Sprint network for internet. It is nice to be back online and publishing.

This campground, San Pedro, was closed for several weeks this year due to a military plane crash. Read about it here. http://news4sanantonio.com/news/local/officials-investigating-small-plane-crash-near-lake-amistad

It turns out that the crash site is about a hundred feet from the campground. The OFM went over to take a couple of pictures of the burned area. This is the beat down grass the trucks entering the area caused.



The area of the burn is a few hundred feet long by a couple of hundred feet wide. There are still orange flags around the area. The cleanup seems to have been very thorough since no pieces of equipment are evident.



It is rather anti-climatic to see the area now.

We have taken a quick look at parts of the lake to see what has changed. Nothing has changed. It still is a great lake for kayaking as a way of trying to have tooooo much fun.
