Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

In. Just booked a room. Front desk informed me there still are plenty of rooms available (2nd Floor) but should sell out in the up coming month due to hunting season opening Nov. 1st.

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

Happy to have you!

Oh man, I didn't think to look at when hunting season started. Is that bow season or long guns?

It won't be a problem at our place in J.C. but we do need to be a little aware while we ride the dirt roads of the hill country. Even though these are all public roads, the often go next to or through private property where hunters may be stalking their prey.

Don't think we will be mistaken for a deer, but I don't want to be shot for scaring off the deer they have been waiting all day for

Opening Bow Season is always the first weekend in October. Gun "Regular" season is always going to be the first weekend of November.

I really do understand and I'm not trying to start an argument- but the dang deer are thick as ticks in a cow's ear...how hard can it be to find one to shoot? We are awash in them.

I object, but only because I can't make this event.

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

I'm interested in this! Newbie rider, small adv bike. Have never camped before so I guess I might as well look for a room to spend the nights. Do people ride together from Austin or everyone meets there by their own?

Re: 2018 Texas Hill Country 500 - Nov 2-4, 2018

It appears this will be a very well attended ride so there shouldn't be a problem finding a smaller group of like minded / skilled riders to ride each day with.

You are welcome to try and find someone to ride out to J.C. with, but most riders will trickel in all througout the day and into the evening.

A lot of riders will be hauling their bikes to J.C., then riding from there, so that is another option.

Look forward to meeting you!
