Good luck with that. The Wifi is spoty as I recall

Re: Roll The Bones Rally - October 13, 14 & 15, 2017

I added one more route to the share drive to help riders get back from Mary's a little quicker. There isn't much difference in distance but it should save a decent amount of time. Chalk Mountain was cut which I don't like but if it's getting late and you have to get home then there isn't much choice.

Could someone give a little description on just what kind of riding to expect on the Half *** route?

Gravel, rolling twisty pavement, slick water crossing (use river bed, not concrete), this again and again.

I'm not seeing RTB8-RallyRaid_Route_Short.gpx uploaded to Google Drive. See all the originals.

I'm running a little behind... Complications loading a bike solo for the first time heh. Will registration still be open around 530? I didn't see the end time for that, just that it resumes at 3.

Also, I didn't get my GPS in time for this, and would be looking to tag along with a group for the Rally Raid, preferably one that is willing to deal with the fact that I'm not an expert off road, more like intermediate. I'm cool with trial by fire though, if you're willing to wait for me if I drop it

I love that Dody and this TWT crowd has trained the group to think "Hey - I can burn that!" when driving by roadside furniture!

I sure wish I could join ya'll this weekend. Enjoy the perfect riding weather!

Re: Roll The Bones Rally - October 13, 14 & 15, 2017

My thanks to Doty and any and all that helped him put this on and helped with the chores. This was a great weekend.

I was pleased to see Doty, Brad Collins, Richard Gibbons, Robert E Lee and Aaron altogether in one place. All these folks are doing yeoman's work to put on events and make dual sporting possible for folks like me, but you don't often see them all at the same time.

I had a great group to ride with too. Simmons1 led and always seems to have to put up with me off his back wheel somewhere, and the others are just great folks to ride with. I'd ride with any of them any time they'd have me.

Lastly, how could you have a bad time with grislyterror around? Every time I saw her, she was lighting the place up with a big bright smile.

All and all, a great group of folks. I look forward to the next adventure.

Thanks Doty and the rest of the staff for organizing this ride. It was a great weekend in a part of the state I had not really spent much time in before. Thanks Richard Gibbons for leading our crew of John, Keith, Mark, me, and Waylon despite my attempts to get us lost. It was great to see old friends and to meet new ones. Good, good times. Dawn had a good time meeting folks and hanging out as well. I'm looking forward to Big Bend in March and Junction in May.

Special thanks to TXjames for creating the Rally Raid route, Great road selections, it surpassed my expectations. Looks like most people shortchanged themselves and cut the route short. I did the entire route solo in the opposite direction (don't ask, long story) and only crossed paths with a single KLR650.
