Big Bend TOMORROW

I gave up on heading north, since the weather flipped early this year in CO/UT and I'd be camping in the cold. I'm heading to Big Bend to bike camp on a R1200GSA leaving tomorrow to miss the weekend and next week's rains. If anyone wants to join in, PM or respond. I apologize its very late notice, but am packing the bike up now. Will probably ride out day 1, camp 3 days or so then ride back in one day. Will take the nicer hill country backroads down towards Iraan then slab it 45 miles to Ft. Stockton and drop south.

Can't go, but say hi to the Krulls from me if you see them.

Re: Big Bend TOMORROW

It would be great to run into them. I think I have Robert's cell unless he changed it. I may give him a shout and say hello. Now, does anyone know if Pinto Canyon is big bike friendly? Looks like it may be. Running by myself out there I don't want to get the big pig stuck and run out of beer

If Pinto Canyon isn't muddy, then yeah, it's big bike friendly. After big rains, it gets to be a handfull... I also really like Casa Piedra Rd.

Same number still. Good to have a contact down there if you have problems.

Re: Big Bend TOMORROW

Well its a bummer but had to leave BB early due to incoming weather (on Sunday after only one day in the park) so did not connect with the Krulls. Next time for sure. Dang lucky I wimped out and did the 500 miles back with a twist of haste, given the hill country route I always take ended up with bridges missing and roads closed on Monday.

Re: Big Bend TOMORROW

Glad you made it home safe. I know some buddy's that were supposed to have left Wednesday to go out to the Ranch and NP. Haven't heard if they went or what .

Re: Big Bend TOMORROW

We just got back. Fought the weather a little bit, but not awful. Day 1 State Park, Botella and Papalote areas, put down a 100 hard miles, some slop. Still nobody home at Ramon's House. Day 2 Maverick, River Rd, Old Ore, Marathon, Lake Ament, put down about 200 miles. About puked when i crossed paths with a mini van out there. Day 3 rain and mud, limited the dirt travel to some Terlingua Ranch sneaker trails, then slabbed it to the Basin, slab to Santa Elena, then Maverick home. It was a good time. I swear the people watching at the porch is getting more and more interesting.

Taking a nap under my desk today.
