I wandered down to San Marcos around noon for the School Supplies Drive being hosted by the Bandidos MC at Jack’s Roadhouse. This was a first time event, planned to happen annually. I worked (yes I do work weekends once in a while) in the morning, so I didn’t arrive until about 1pm. By that time, everything was in full swing. Several hundred people showed up, and there was a large pile of school supplies and backpacks filling one of the tents. It was almost 100 degrees when I got there, so a lot of people were inside Jack’s, and those that didn’t fit inside, were mostly hunting shade outside, or at least I was. I did find a couple of square feet of shade with some friends, so I stood around and finished up my Fritos pie for lunch. They also had tacos if the Fritos and chili was too much for you. I found a few other CMA members there from some of the southern Texas area, so we talked for a few. Everybody seemed to be having a good time, though a few lamented the heat. You just have to love Texas summers in August. After making my donation to the school supplies pile, wandering, taking pictures, talking and eating, I decided it was time to hit the trail before I melted. Here are a few of the best shots;
