I've only made the last three or four, this one was hands down the best of the ones I've attended. Kudos to everyone involved. Mad props to Rod for organizing and Steve for leading our group. I call dibs on being in Steve's group for next year.

After lunch in Blanco we got asked by a 75-80 year old woman, "where you old farts from??!!"

Rod, there seems to be an infinite number of rural, twisty, uninhabited roads in the Hill Country and you know at least 98 percent of them. I enjoyed following you at the Rally. As I was riding through all of the beautiful scenery I was thinking this is going to end soon. So, it was good to the last mile.

Thanks for ramrodding the Rally. You brought happiness to a lot of people.

Re: The TENEREacity of STROM-A-THON APR 13-15 2018....ALL KINDS OF BIKES WELCOME

Thanks for a great weekend everyone, and a special shout out to James and Josh for leading great rides.

Whoever told me it was going to be 40 degrees yesterday morning is full of it! It didn't crack 40 until I got to Lamesa!

That said, it was absolutely worth the 1805 miles I rode this weekend, and I got home in plenty of time for dinner.

See you next year.

Re: The TENEREacity of STROM-A-THON APR 13-15 2018....ALL KINDS OF BIKES WELCOME

A special thanks to Mr2mch for pulling this all together for our benefit.

I had a great time, and it was nice to reconnect with old friends and acquaintances and make new ones.

A little windy on Saturday but otherwise great weather, especially compared to what was going on not too far away back in DFW.

It was nice leading and riding with great riders like (in no particular order) Multisurface Rider (both days), Liteitup, RZ500, SanteFeTrailer, Texas Oil Man, MrgreenGenes, Zephyr, KamLeeR and DFW Tom. Thanks for leading us down on Thursday Rod.

Highlights for me on food were Alamo Springs Café twice and the Ole 300 BBQ in Blanco.

A person can spend a couple of days riding in the Hill Country without even getting close to the Sisters.
