If you are tent camping remember it's spring and the winds can pick up quickly. I was in a small two man cheap tent in Robinson city park in Llano two nights ago when that front blew through at 0100. A couple of additional guy lines on the fly would have been great. I had em but left them at home.

Room booked, registration sent!

Can't wait, great event.

Simon Bros. in Roosevelt is a neat place for those venturing west of Junction. They serve lunch in back.

Anyone from Houston going to this ride? Me and my brothers are going. Taking our DR650s

I'm from Whitehall which is pretty close (I drive to work in the big ugly) and just signed up for the Challenge. Don't really know what to expect since this is my first organized dualsport event so I plan on getting there Thursday early enough to meet folks.

Oh yeah, just have to get my boot on early before the swelling starts, once I get it latched I'm OK. Still not ready to dab so I'll avoid water crossings, although CR260 / CR307 sure was fun last year.

Well, had a major injury during police in-service training yesterday Richard. Fell dislocating right shoulder and breaking the socket. Spent last evening in ER and will hear from ortho this morning about surgery. Depending on how bad this thing is, I may still come over and assist or something Richard. I think my riding days are on hold for a bit but leave my registration active
This was first dislocated shoulder for me. With the broken socket, the pain level was an eleven on the "one to ten " scale.

Hey everybody, I have my days off from work and I'm going to head out from Houston on Thursday morning. Looking at camping, is the a campsite that people are camping at or is it all different? Looks like there are a few to choose from.

The Mudmullet and I will be there Thur. We will be bringing his WR250R and my XT250. I am really thinking about bringing my Ural GU as well. I like to go slow. I have ridden a lot of those roads on my bicycle and am looking forward to doing them on the bike. :rider:

Richard,

Do you know if we will be going through any border checks this time around as last year's TAC? I got pulled over last time for not carrying my green card.

Thanks!

I'm thinking about riding my 950 Super Enduro down. I don't have any firm plans yet. Anyone looking for a riding partner?

Anyone looking for someone to share room costs with?

I may have a bed available at the HQ hotel Fri and Sat nights. PM me if you are interested and we can discuss. I won't know positively until tomorrow evening but it is 99% sure (riding pard tripped over his dog and voice mail said "I can't walk", my reply? "But can you ride?")
