Joe - jdsmetex - will be at the SHNF on Sat and can get ideas from folks there. I have not gotten any commitments for either Sat or Tue above, but if anyone is interested I'm happy to meet either day.

I will be at the Round the Bend Rally and I believe Joe will as well, so we can also talk there. The intent is to get some local rides on the calendar. Thinking some E. TX. routes and maybe some adventure style routes to the Pie Runs.

I'd go to the SHNF trail day but my WR is currently out of commission, and though I have taken the GS on a bit of the single track there it is not the right tool for the job. It is quite a cardio workout though...

I have loads of routs for the areas West, North and East of Huntsville. There are some really fun roads between here and Crockett and Nacagdoches, especially if you like sand I have a good Davy Crockett NF tour route as well that is fun on the big or small bikes.

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: Texas Adventure Riders Association

I'll continue to run the Mextrek ride each fall and maybe tweek the timing to give some more space between it and roll the bones in 2018 and forward.

Sid and I will be starting up an "Arizona" chapter, with 2 members so far, haha. 2 members including me.

As I get acclimated up here I plan to do a once a year, guided, 4 day ride to the various forests and mountain towns north of Phoenix. Fang is heading out after Big Bend to help me with a scouting trip following some routes and areas covered by the group from TWTEX that came out a few years ago. I'll post these on the forum, but have zero expectations anyone will actually come this far west, haha.

Great ideas here so far. My advice, no matter what you decide to do, is:

1. Make all events, dinners, activities, and rides regular and repeatable.
2. Have someone accountable for #1.
3. Replace anyone that fails at 1 and 2.

The riding out there is absolutely awesome! Folks would be missing out on a great opportunity if they don't take you up on this! If you head East out toward Florence and the Gila River, make REAL sure everyone knows not to come on anything bigger than a 650 dual sport like a DR, KLR, XR/L, etc... Even on these bikes, a lot of the riding is very technical and not for inexperienced riders that are likely to be WAY over packed V-Stroms, Versys, and the like will be way out of their element!! The bigger bikes like 800/1200GS, Tenere 1200, Tiger 800/1200 would also be EXTREMELY hard to ride there unless the rider is a VERY experienced and skilled rider.

Being so far from Texas and wanting my friends to come visit was key to our home choice. We bought 2.5 acres inside city limits. I'm remodeling one building into a 6 person guesthouse, and I have my 1960 greyhound set up on site to sleep 4 more. And parking tow rigs isn't a problem. Now, just gotta discover the trails and invite some friends.

Shadman, six from us from Texas went to the Desert Daze dual sport ride east of Tucson at the Triangle T Ranch a few years ago. They gave us about 50 tracks of the area, attached. The link in the instruction file may not work.

Oops: The gpx file is just to large to upload. PM me your email & I'll email it to you.

Yes I'll be out at SHNF, Kelly's Pond Trail Head @ 8am Saturday February 18th. Looking forward to meeting and talking to the folks there. If you have time to ride, come on out and to help get trails back open. I know the folks would greatly appreciate it!
