I've got an AirBnB booked just outside Terlingua with Ropeburn (Thomas), John and Julie Andrews, and Kathy Hearn. I'll be pulling into town late Wednesday, and hope to put together a Pinto Canyon ride that day before the rally officially starts.

Hmmm, sounds interesting.

I did that loop last year. It was great. The only issue I had was the road along the river just after the hill was gated and marked no trespassing. There is a stretch of about 7 to 10 miles that appears to be a private gated road.

Re: Around the Bend & Lone Star Reunion Feb 28 - Mar 3, 2019

We did it from Marfa last year, with no gates. This year I'm thinking of starting in Terlingua, cutting across BBRSP, then around on Pinto Canyon to Candelaria. Back on 170. Anybody who's in Terlingua Thursday morning is welcome to join.

Re: Around the Bend & Lone Star Reunion Feb 28 - Mar 3, 2019

Just mapped it out while I finished my coffee. 274 miles might be a little excessive on a dual sport, but I'm generally down for anything in Big Bend. Another option is I'll have my truck, a trailer, and an extra driver, we could just haul the bikes to Marfa.

Oh, if you are talking about the loop from Marfa back down to Ruidosa ignore what I said about marked gates. The loop with the gates and no trespassing signs is the road heading North from Candelaria.

What’s the hotel recommended for this event? Do groups start from around the same place or it varies? Newbie here.

Re: Around the Bend & Lone Star Reunion Feb 28 - Mar 3, 2019

Most everyone stays in or around Terlingua or Study Butte. There's Chisos Mining Co, Big Bend Resort, or El Dorado. Or a bunch of places to camp. It's possible to stay further out - but if you're joining a group, they pretty much all meet up at the 118/170 junction for re-fueling each morning. It's a lotta cold, early miles to stay outside this immediate area...

Check is in the mail...literally. I have a reservation made at the hotel. I have the time off requested at work.

It will be the first trip for my newly acquired Honda CRF250 (2017). I am ready to really check it out.

I might be interested in ride sharing/car pooling if anyone is coming from the San Angelo area.
