On the calendar

Camping sounds good, but $20 for tent seems steep, when some motels are in the $40's.

I can't do the whole event, but I plan to be there for Saturdays ride.

Too far to slab it on the 450, so I'm going to truck it there early Saturday morning, ride all day, do dinner, and head back home to San Antonio.

I called North Lano River RV Park, and they said two occupants with two small tents would be $20. So if any other single camper with small tent would like to share a campsite (Thursday-Saturday nights) let me know

Hi Fred, SpiritAtBay and I will camp Friday night, possibly Saturday, too. Will the park allow 3 people/2 tents in one site? We may have to have our own site.

Not sure; Since I was going single, I asked them if another single with separate tent could camp on the same site (making it two people in separate tents on the one site -- their standard $20 fee includes two people). You could ask, but I think they would add $5 for the extra person.

Anybody headed over from Austin on Thursday? I will probably leave early afternoon so I can stay off the highways and get there in time for dinner.

Re: TARA: Texas Adventure Ride, April 20-23, 2017, Junction, TX

Is there anyone going up from Houston early Thursday morning? My intentions are to leave early Thursday morning for camping Thursday night Friday and Saturday. I would like to share camp site to cut down on expenses. If you are interested in riding up early Thursday morning and interested in riding together you​ can p.m. me and we can find a time and a meeting place.

We stayed at South Llano several years ago. It's also a game management area where folks come to hunt. We discovered that during the times when hunters aren't there, the park has way too many staff folks running around looking for something to do. First state park that I ever actually felt harassed in. Made for an unpleasant stay for us. TPWD heard about it after that. Maybe it's different now. Then, if the rules said two tents and one termite per site - they'd have folks coming by night and day to see that everyone complied. FWIW...

I'm heading out Thursday after 4:00p - maybe earlier - from Pflugerville. I have room in the truck. You can reach me at 512-784-1037 if still looking for a ride, and if so to work out details. I'm staying at econo lodge if you want to split cost of a room. Paul

Greg, the campground we are talking about is a private enterprise; not a SP. Thanks for info tho!

Re: TARA: Texas Adventure Ride, April 20-23, 2017, Junction, TX

I am thinking of riding with you guys on Saturday, can't stay just a day ride then back to J.C.

What bike would be best for this ride, Africa Twin or Husky. Guessing mostly hill country gravel roads and pavement mix, maybe the twin?
