Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

I just booked tent space at retrorents.com in terlingua, 5 miles from rally headquarters. If anyone needs tent space, they have room for 5 more people. It's a nice setup, and the owners are riders.

Also, my current plan is to drive to Terlingua after work on Wednesday night. If any other early arrivals want to plan a ride for Thursday, let me know.

I’m in. Room booked and registered.
This will be my first rally, though I have been to Big Bend a few times.
I’m looking forward to it.

Don't see Dos Y Dos on the schedule this year.

Didn't look just assumed. Can always make it happen with your own group though. However my decision just got easier as of Friday morning. I can't join either ride now due to family matters that week.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

To any of you dirt daubers, I have a lot for sale (long time) under Bee Mountain. It has water and power available (close) but I've been told it is too small to put septic on it. I bought it for bike trips, and used it a few times, but I don't ride these days. It is right off 118, close to coffee and stores. Willing to take a loss just to get rid of the paper work. The place is OK, at tops, but kinda just a crash place for riding. Let me know thru PM, Uncle/Roger knows where it is if you want to take a look. Tell him Primos place, but don't bother him unless you are serious. I can guide you there via Google maps. Scott, sorry if I shouldn't put this here, just seemed like the perfect place.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

Just a lot, 1/4 acre. Big enough for a mobile home, or travel trailer. I bought it for 7k, back when I thought I would use it more. ALL offers considered. I will start the bidding at 5k, and we can go down from there. I don't want to thread jump, so if anybody has questions, PM me or Email at txprimate@gmail.com.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

We have booked a room at the place next to the gas station we meet at each morning. I have a work deadline that might cause me to scratch this, otherwise I am excited to finally get back out and ride the countryside with everyone.

Will be trailering from Austin.

Re: Around the Bend - March 22-25, 2018

I'm new to the adventure world. I am planning to attend the Around the Bend this year on the GS with my daughter and camp in a tent. Unless the weather is bad, we will plan to ride from Georgetown instead of trailering. Being a two up, we plan to stick to pavement and class 1 for safety reasons. Anyone heading out on Thursday morning from Austin area, please join us.
