I'm thinkin of a weekend ride for March 23-25. Camping both nights at my ranch, older gentlemen will have 1st dibs on bunk beds, others can tent camp or hammock camp. Plenty of space available.

The Plan;

Friday, meet up is at 1:30 in Jacksboro @ Herds Burger, then tour nearby Fort Richardson. From there, we'll take (as close as possible) the old route to Fort Belknap. After a quick visit there, it's more backroads to my place for evening for camping & vittles.

Saturday, up early & backroads to Fort Griffin, then Fort Phantom Hill (just north of Abiliene), then thru Abiliene town aways to Fort Chadbourne. Chadbourne has a sweet museum with hundreds of rifles, so plan on at least 1 hour there to
visit. Then, it's about 3 hours by backroad back to my place for camping & vittles.

Sunday, an easy breakfast @ Ranch HQ, followed by a friendly pistol shooting competition, USPS style with timer & steel targets. Anyone wishing to participate in the unofficial pistol competition will need a pistol & 100rds of ammo. Then wrap it up by noon & part ways.

Routes are suited for big bikes, but any off-road capable bike with 150 mile range should work. I'm aiming for 50/50 dirt & pavement, but may have a bit more dirt if time permits. If we have a little extra time 1 day, some ranch road riding may be in order.

If you can't make it Friday, you can catch up Friday night or Saturday somewhere.
