Chad Carufel from Denver, Colorado, is visiting family in Aransas Pass and decided he wanted to spend Saturday night camping on the beach on Mustang Island.
“I have never done it before, I had seen people down there doing it, and it looked like an amazing experience,” Carufel said.
About 4:00 p.m., Carufel and his dog, Lucy, chose a spot about 20-feet behind the seaweed line of the last high tide and thought he had chosen the perfect spot. That feeling did not last long.
“The tide just kept coming up and up and up and kept moving in further and further,” he said. “I had to move my camp twice. By the time I finally got comfortable, I was all the way back by the dunes with everybody else-lined up.”
As Carufel moved his tent the first time, he noticed an RV parked close to the water. He said they had the slides out and must have been inside as the tide was rising. By the time the RVer decided to try to move, it was too late.
