I don't know,....but he probably was not fortunate enough to make it through the Black Gap. I bet a small % of Big Bend visitors make it back there.

+1 to staying at Chisos. I'm bringing my Sertao and (possibly) a new to me KTM 500.

This sounds like a blast. My KTM 350 EXCF holds 2.25 gallons of gas, good for ~100 miles. Is that short for this trip?

Didn't take long for the conspiracy theorists to start hacking the facts apart.

My good friend from Lamar High School in Houston, TX is the owner of Boyz2Men Trailer Park Eatery in Marfa (And previously owned Padre's, a marfa landmark), played in bands including the El Orbits and Banana Blender Surprise in Houston and Austin, was a regular entertainer at the Continental Clubs, is a DJ on Marfa public radio 93.5, and most recently was elected J.P for Marfa and surrounding areas. He's been interviewed by national press about the medical investigation, coroner's report, etc... Anyone's best bet to catch up on what actually happened is to ride the ADVenture challenge and have lunch in Marfa and catch the scoop firsthand from David or one of his talented staff.

70 yr old men just sometimes die of natural causes. Sometimes alot younger.
Need to get your friend to put the band back together & play at the banquet. Some Frank Marino & Mohagany Rush would be nice

Re: 2016 9th Annual Uncle's Around the Bend, Feb 25th - 28th, 2016

Are there any "non-organized" groups planning rides (not the paid rides / challenges) on Fri & Sat? I would possibly be intrested in a ride Friday as I'm not sure I'm ready for the Desert Challenge.

Every day there will be small groups of 2 -8 guys heading out from breakfast on unorganized rides. Friday, probably 40 or so freelancers. Saturday, about 50 based on organized ride attendance. One group is doing Mexico (close to USA, no import permit needed) on Saturday. Offroad to a point where you can overlook the US from Mexico. Thursday many guys arrive early and ride the close proximity roads north into Terlingua Ranch. Either Wednesday or Sunday I'll be with a small group heading to the Ghost Town that Herman (El Dorado owner) purchased, on a 15 mile trek into the unknown with the boys from the Badlands TV series, haha. All you have to do is show up at the High Sierra on Thursday to find others out and about, or the Starlight / Front porch most other days around breakfast time. We will have "official" ride meetings both Friday and Saturday at 7:30 at the Starlight at the free, bacon included, breakfast buffets. Guys will group up then and head out daily.

Peter

Anyone new to the scene should meet us on Thursday morning for the newbie ride north on ranch road. It will be about a 50 mile round trip, not very difficult, but scenic, close, and fun.

I am in for BBRSP. I will have my trailer and we can haul bikes to Ft Leaton .
I will be staying in Study Butte next to the gas station. Black box trailer.

Re: 2016 9th Annual Uncle's Around the Bend, Feb 25th - 28th, 2016

I'm a newb to the TWT and dual sport organized ride scene but I've been riding for years. I hope to make it to the newb ride on thursday, depends how rough work is on Wednesday.

I planned to get a GPS before this trip but can't decide which unit to invest in. Do I absolutely need a GPS or can I just tag along with a group my speed?
