Default Pelican Landing restaurant at Cedar Mills reopens



Hurray -- my favorite restaurant and landing spot is reopened. Looks as good as new.

This is not advertisement, but I just want to share a really enjoyable RV experience.

Stop by 3T0. If you live near north Texas and haven't been here, you ought to visit. For an RV, it's a quick trip for breakfast or lunch and a chance to land on a nice grass strip.

Here's what the area looked like in June 2015. That's the runway at right -- 2/3 under water.



Restaurant at your 9 o'clock. Yes it's there -- but only the roof peak shows. No doubt they are stocking up on fish and seafood for spring.



Runway is in great shape. And I was the only one using at the time.



I'll bet these boat slips are full come spring break.



These boats had the right idea. The higher the better. But wait, you float ...



Still rebuilding some of the workshops.



The Airstrip is just a short hike to the North.

Default great news

How's the runway? We were going to head up there today for lunch, but I had full fuel plus a passenger, and I don't like going in there heavy with the nose wheel. Went to GPM instead, which has really good burgers by the way.

Default Runway

The Cedar Mills (3T0) runway is in great shape. Had lunch there today.
The restruant is as good as it always was.
