Big Bend in December?

Anyone have any plans for BB in December, away from the holidays? I need to burn a couple extra vacation days and have been wanting to get me and the DRZ down there for a while now. If you have plans and don't mind an extra rider or so, post up please.

Yea, I've got 7 days of vacation time unscheduled, and can carry over 5 to next year. The other two are use it or lose it, so I figured this'd be a good time and way to use them.

Really hoping to tag along with someone who knows the place since I've never been and won't venture out alone either. My dirt skills aren't noob, but they are far from expert and that's a big place to get lost in.

Re: Big Bend in December?

Iím too am interested. Iíve never been there either so would be nice to find someone who knows their way around. Iíd be coming out of San Antonio area with a 4x4 truck and a trailer. Also have a neighbor with property close by that might let us camp. I might also be up for a quick recon trip out there on street bikes.

Too lazy to camp but keep me informed what dates your thinking. If it fits, Iíll go. Itís only 800k acres, no chance of getting lost

I go once or twice a year on the gsa but now would like to see the dirt on my xrl

Re: Big Bend in December?

I too have never been and would like to go.

There have been some squawking about the week after Christmas, but haven't seen a lot of air play.

Re: Big Bend in December?

Jasen, are you talking about the National Park or State Park ? I'm assuming NP. I would like to go back sometime but I don't see it happening this Winter.

Re: Big Bend in December?

I would go to the NP for my first visit. Just my opinion.

Re: Big Bend in December?

I was thinking of going down December 17 through December 20 (Monday - Thursday) Only time I have during the holidays to ride and this is still very early in the planning stages.
Just throwing it out there!

Re: Big Bend in December?

I may be down in December also but uncertain for dates. I'd probably camp at Rancho Topanga.

Re: Big Bend in December?

There will be a few of us there the Sunday before Christmas tell January 2.
This will be the 6th year for us going to BB over the Christmas holidays.
We may be going over to the state park a few days.
There is a thread for the state park for Christmas that has been started and I usually start one also but this one will work.
