We strategically stopped at my gate on the way out. A few breaks through. One thanks to the klr, at the same water crossing from Tuesday. I'll be getting the xrl finished up Friday and Saturday. Hopefully be legal mid November.

Yeah, it makes me feel like a kid again.


Until I wake up in the morning feeling like an 80 year old man.

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

I checked out the local roads just south of Llano. I wanted to see if the roads were passable. Coulee Hollow on CR315 as it crosses Sandy Creek still has a four foot deep soft bottom that will stop any bike! They hope to add limestone rock base the next few weeks.

The first pool of water in the image below with rocks is OK. The second "shallow" section is actually deep and has very soft sand at the bottom. The locals told me this section has had numerous ATV vehicles stuck in it recently. The heavy flooding of two weeks ago has washed away all of the rocks on the bottom, leaving a heavy accumulation of fine silt.

I did not venture through.



The seven mile out and back CR308b road had some fun water crossings. Without the addition of the white rock river base, these creeks would be very hard to cross.

Re: Post your Day Rides Here!

The amount of rain Texas has gotten recently is really astounding. I drove from West Texas to Houston and back to West Texas the week of the Llano flooding. It never stopped raining from Katy to Midland.

The weekend after I got home, we took a ride to the Colorado River and Lake Spence to see just how high the levels there had risen. To our surprise, Spence had gone from 12 percent to 26 percent and the waterfall at the grotto was in full effect. It appears our drought is officially over:
