Hair of the dog 2

On January first, 2013, we're having the second annual hair of the dog tournament at sand hill. I don't have all the details, but it's being run by Fly Ink.
There well be camping available (I will be camping tonight), and with the light rain we've had today we should be able to have a big fire. Come on out and celebrate the new year with the first tournament of the season!
Oh, and here's a pic from the Alamo bowl, which was awesome, by the way.

About our road

So we've tried to be clear with folks about the dirt road to Sand Hill being rough, but some have told us we've gone overboard and are scaring people away.  The thing is, we want to make sure people know what to expect.  In our directions we recommend people drive a high-clearance vehicle, but if you're careful you can get away with lesser clearance.  For example, a good friend of ours has been driving his Corolla out here for years, and this is what I've been driving out here ever since I sold my RAV4:

Of course you have to be careful driving something like this out here, and if you're coming from Austin or Lockhart, I recommend you take the 'long way' as it is better suited for low clearance vehicles than the 'short way.'  This 'long way' route involving Hwy 304 is also recommended for those coming from Houston, San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, etc, so you should be good to go approaching from those directions.

Also, be sure to read about how to drive in sand and other fun stuff at our driving directions page.

Fling away,
