So our cabin has been here for 40 years, in that time it has flooded once, in this year alone it has flooded three times. I'm guessing something has changed the flow of the water somewhere. I think obama did it and I considered standing on the roof of my camper and waiting for assistance but decided to just clean up and try to locate all my belongings yet again. I think it's time to move camp to higher ground and I got a chord of wood to cut now that mine washed away again. May not get as much hunting done as I normally do.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.

I didn't mind it much in the spring I just figured it happens but the second time it came through the camper. The cabin is basically ruined, it floated the porch this time as you can see by everything turned over. I've cleaned up three times this year and it's beginning to be a beating to show up and have to find propane bottles and chairs and the like 200 yards from camp.

Very sorry cmc, that is not a pretty picture. A new plan is definitely in order. Bug out time.

That really sucks. Such a nice camp setup.

I agree it's time to find higher ground. I wish you good luck sorting it all out.

Keep on keeping on. I can't even get into my place. There is no road left and it was made even worse after getting my neighbor unstuck and tearing up what little road was left. The guy who takes care of my place has had to stay in town for the last 2 weeks because he can't make it in to his trailer and the rain came again yesterday and supposed to go through the weekend. From severe drought to flood. I just hope the food plots didn't wash completely out.


Sometimes it's hard being me! But somebody has to do it.

Welcome to Texas. Flood or drought. I hate to see that. Hope you are able to salvage some of it and get some hunting done!

Just be careful in that flood water. You never know what's in it.

I hunted on the West fork a mile or two east of the 281 bridge for a few years back in the 90's. You want to talk about a river that would come up fast. Me and dad hunted the far side of our place across the river. One morning it was raining and we drove across in his 77 Chevy 4x4 swb, water was up around the bottom of the hubcaps. By end of hunt midmorning it was above the fenderwells on his truck. He said what do you think when we pulled up to the crossing, I said heck its your truck and so he drove off in it. Water came over the hood on the way down but we made it through, the road had a good bottom there.

To the OP- Sorry about the hassle. My camp is in pretty bad shape this year also, I'm about right to push it in a pile, burn it down and start over.

Move your camp, it'll never flood again. Murphy's Law.
