We seem to be on a ~4 year cycle 2011, 2015, and now 2019...…..thinking it might be a good idea to ride over and string up a new tetherball ball in Truckhaven on Saturday the 26th...….then the kids will have it available the following weekend for Halloween...…...I'll pick up a new ball to carry out there....  

Canceling until we have a scouting report on what to expect when we arrive...….do we need to cement in a new post?

Previous trip report:

4.5 years ago...unbelievable. 

I'm pretty sure I won the last teather ball game.

I can't commit yet, but will try my best to make this one.

The last time I was there probably in May the pole was knocked down. We stood it up. Don’t remember any chain.

Delaying this ride/tetherball donation until we have a more recent scouting report on what to expect when we arrive...…..may have to drive out there with water/cement and sink a post....….then unload and ride...…..

If anyone is out riding/scouting, here are a couple of waypoints I set ~12(?) or more yrs ago to help you find the phone booth & Tetherball court

Phone booth (or what’s left of it): N33 18.086 W116 01.771

 

Tetherball: N33 18.192 W116 00.517  (Not visible from the wash.....you need to ride through an arch and climb up on a small plateau)

Last time I was there the tether ball was on a piece of pvc pipe. 
Be good to put in an actual pole with a bag of concrete. 
The phone booth was down last trip as well. 
Sucks that people go out and mess up our landmarks. Or maybe it was the wind.

I have some large 8' galvanized poles if you need one. Let me know and I can bring it back from the mountains.  Can this be accessed by vehicle?

Yep, plenty of Jeeps and SXS hit it.........not sure about my long bed dodge...…...straight up Corral(?) Wash from 86 and a sharp right turn under the arch.

12' would be perfect to cement it down at least 2'

Working now then visiting Caitlynn/grandkids this afternoon over in San Marcos ......I'll let you know when I can swing by with the truck......then I just need to figure out whether I can get out there in my truck...…..Jarrett's jeep would be better suited for short stretch in wash...….

You won't see it from the main wash...…..you have to go up through one of two arches (west and east)...…..and you won't even know you're there if the pole is missing or on the ground (since you won't be able to see it up on the plateau once you pass under the arch)……..Sooooo, I'd definitely conduct your search in daylight hours :coolio::heh:
