Re: Lone Star Loop (2,180 DS loop)

Today I went out on my Ural. First I dropped off my son at the airport so he could fly back to his home in South Dakota for the recruiter to pick up in the morning so he can start Army boot Camp Tuesday. After dropping him off, I made my way to Boerne and then rode off to Bandera where I hopped on the Lonestar loop. I rode it from Bandera to Pleasanton. I had to quit and nurse an ailing Russian motorcycle home to New Braunfels. Other than a clutch going out on the Ural (again), the ride was great.

These are the good times, they're looking good so far,
jwaller is loving life, on his brand new KLR.
Got rid of the Ural, that nightmare now is over,
He'll probably get another one when H3LL freezes over.

jwaller, you're brutal on Ural clutches... If you need an extra hand, give me a call. Eddie.

Re: Lone Star Loop (2,180 DS loop)

Right on, John.

I left San Marcos Friday, and headed to Camp Wood, where I left off the last time I did some of the Loop.

The first couple pics are of the gate I stopped at last time, as I mention a couple pages back in this thread. I really like that their list names the US Border Patrol. Why not name the UN too? Anyway, for all who are wondering- I never ran into the "armed rider" mentioned.

Re: Lone Star Loop (2,180 DS loop)

Bump gates galore.

I filled up once more just before 10, and started to look for a place to sleep for the night. I randomly followed a two track off the route, which lead me to an old gravel pit, where I camped for the night.

More bump gates. More bluebonnets. Passed some really cool old stone buildings.

Re: Lone Star Loop (2,180 DS loop)

The ceiling height inside the stone house was about 6'4". Standing with helmet on, I had to hunch just a bit to walk around inside. Were people just shorter then, or was the builder sick of stacking those huge stones and just said "good enough" and quit?

And because I got a thing for old bridges- one pony truss and one through truss.


After making it almost to Abilene Saturday evening, I turned south and rode into Kerrville KOA around 9 or 10, and camped with the TWT Strom-a-thon folks.

Great weekend for sure.

Re: Lone Star Loop (2,180 DS loop)

Thanks, Brian. Of course, the pictures NEVER capture how beautiful it is in person. This is a great time to get out and ride, before the weather turns to melting my jacket to my body. It was windy Friday and Saturday, but temps were nice, and everything is still green instead of yellow.
