Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

Testing the waters for a weekly bbq lunch meetup. I see a few rides like this that seem successful. The day doesn't matter to me, I think the same day would work best so plans could be made once it started. Stay in the general north of Houston, east of Bryan, 1/2 way to Dallas piney woods area. There's nice FM roads and for the adventure crowd all kinds of dirt roads if that calls your name.

Let me know if there is some interest and what day and I'll post a ride and see what happens. Would love to do this weekly/bi-weekly.

Dmux, Jfink, SilveBullet others?

Doc's BBQ, 1277 E. loop, Crockett, Tx
Feb. 5th at noon. About 50 miles west of Nacogdoches/Lufkin, on either Hwy 7 or 21.

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

I'd be interested. I live in Cypress, so it wouldn't always be the closest, but I'm off work Friday and Saturday and would enjoy the ride. Friday would be the better day I think.

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

So how soon are you looking to start this up? With a little notice I'll be up for just about anytime the weather isn't terrible. And my preference will lean towards dirt roads, or at least small paved ones, if roads are insisted upon!

I'm in. My schedule just changed last week giving me my weekday flexibility back. So basically any day of the week works for me now with a days notice.

Swing by Atascocita early and we'll take the scenic route up there hitting some mild dirt on the way. After lunch more to follow. I know you need some fun miles on that new 1190, commuting to work doesn't count. Lol

Yes I'm riding the Tenere. Mild dirt = Forestry Service Rds, gravel/dirt County Rds, sometimes with small light patches of sand and mud depending on the weather. Nasty mud and deep sand I turn around on the big bike if I have a choice.

Sounds like I'll have to meet y'all for that ride up. Atascocita isn't exactly close to me, but it sounds like you know a way to go that will be enjoyable!

Also, Woodsguy, what time were you shooting for everyone to meet up out there?

Re: Weekly Piney Woods BBQ lunch

Just for grins, extended forecast looks good for Friday, Feb. 5th. If this takes off we can move the destination around, but how about:

Doc's BBQ, 1277 E. loop, Crockett, Tx.. East side of town next to Whataburger.
As far as a ride, I know routes up there but this isn't an organized ride on my part. Obviously we can group up and do whatever.

Anyone interested in joining me, come on out. We can discuss locations and zero in on a day.

Hmmm, that doesn't look too far from far east Dallas, and I just got confirmed I'm using a comp day that day and so will be off of work....

If you plan on coming post back. I have a small PIF item that needs a ride up to the DFW area for a handoff to another TWT'er.

Will do. I got plenty of room in the FJR. It's in the plans right now, but we know how that goes.

Sadly I will NOT be attending. I had to swap around my day off and on call so I could attend some excellent work training next week. I'm not happy with the situation but really do want the work paid for training.

Anyone else attending from the north? Wouldn't have to be all the way from DFW. Sometimes the TWT pony express works easier with multiple legs.

Heading from the Pineys to the Bonham area today, in abt an hour (or two, knowing me), on over to BigD tomorrow, zig over to N. FtW sometime before Sunday, probably Friday morning. If you can head me off at the pass somewhere, I'll run with that ball.

No clue where Harmaston is and two hours later than planned already so no time to Google it.
