Re: San Saba “Pecan Capital of the World” ride - January 28th & 29th, 2012

If anyone thought they heard thunder last night, fear not, for it was only the Mossrider dreaming of mucho pecan pie in San Saba. Now for my pre-emptive strike plan to the goooy, sweet prize? V>>>

[quote=sanderjavant;965938]Route adjusted- http://www.motowhere.com/maps/route/San-Saba-1
I made an additional adjustment to the route, I removed a short loop to the west, between Hwy 27 and IH10 based on ground knowledge from MultisurfaceRider. I may still investigate the original portion when we are going by depending on available time.QUOTE]

I'll have to take another look at your original portion (have it in my GPS) but there are multiple routes open from 27 to IH10/Cypress Creek Rd. Lots of houses back there, some gravel, mostly paved.

And BTW, what time is 'dinner time?' I'm planning on church at 7:00 pm and don't want to miss a meal! Duane and I were going to wait for your group at 16 and Privelege Creek but I think we will go on ahead and get there when we get there. Anyone wishing to ride along, we will plan on meeting at the Pipe Creek Post Office, KSU at 9:30 ayem. We are two OFs on hopped up (yeah, right) KLRs and ride like old ladies, so be warned.

Re: San Saba “Pecan Capital of the World” ride - January 28th & 29th, 2012

Church is good, will you be out by 730p? If the weather is good as expected I want to ride and explore until dark so that would give us time to unwind some.

If so how about 730p at
Pepperbelly's Mexican Food
(325) 372-4462
517 E Wallace St, San Saba, TX 76877

And 8a for breakfast on Sunday at
Cactus Restaurant
(325) 372-6044
1409 W Wallace St, San Saba, TX 76877

We probably won't get to that intersection until 945-10a if we leave on time, knock the rocks out the way for us, we'll try to catch up.

I could not have said it any better "Ollie" (Mossrider), but watch out for those slippery deer hooves at those low water crossings. V>>>

Re: San Saba “Pecan Capital of the World” ride - January 28th & 29th, 2012

Missed out on the Rock springs ride due to unforseen circumstances, so i'm going to try real hard to make this one. Would like to meet with the group at Pipe Creek. Reservation made at the Executive Inn. It's gonna be fun.

Based on our riding skills and speed, I think the scooter would be an excellent choice if you are going to ride with us.

And, yes Sander, we'll move the big rocks until you catch up; I should be able to make dinner by 7:30 pm, 7:45 at latest...just save some pie.

Weather looks iffy for Sat but what the heck, that's what trash bags are for!

Sounds good, dinner at 730p.

The forecast has already changed since my post 3 hours ago. The rain chance in Castroville on Saturday is down to 10%. I'm sure it will keep changing.

Good, then my group won't have to ride so fast, TimberCat always ups the pace...of course he'll deny it.

You guys could do a meet up breakfast at the OST in Bandera.

Thought had crossed my mind but we'd have to ride a bunch out of our way. We might do b'fast at the campground that Duane calls his winter home. They do a Sat b'fast at 8:00

We may run across your group over weekend. We are going to do a day ride and truck over from Temple. Don't know which day yet, but if you see a black DR, green KLX, white yammie XT or red KLR, its us. Don't do any Flying Kojacks on the water crossings!

The Pipe Creek meet is now going to include b'fast at the Mexican restaurant (Taqueria Jalisco?) just west of the Shell station in Pipe Creek (Highway 16 and FM 1283.) We plan on being there about 8:30 and will leave from the parking lot at 9:30 (no more Post Office meeting.) The Privilege Creek turnoff is just a mile or two west.

Re: San Saba “Pecan Capital of the World” ride - January 28th & 29th, 2012

Starting to get revved up for the ride.

For anyone that needs a warm up this is a couple of blocks from the Taqueria San Juan restaurant.


Attached are the routes in GDB and GPX. Note these have been filtered down to less than 500 points each for my Garmin 76CSx.

If your GPS unit can handle the up to 2000 points you can get the GPX from the routes on MotoWhere under the share dropdown, it will be more accurate.
