I would hope we are KSU about 8am. No meals available Thursday at the bunkhouse so we wont be waiting around for breakfast to be served. Gotta start early so we get a long day's ride as we need to be in Terlingua that evening before all the fajitas are gone.

It is not 3 hrs from CMCH unless you are trailering. Ride your bike there and 1-1/2 hrs. But what is your fuel range? Last gas on 170 is at Lajitas and then 60 miles from there to the start of our ride. So you already need a 120 mile range before even joining our ride. No gas in the park unless you would make arrangements for us to haul some in for you.

_

Lets play it by ear - if I show up on time then great but don't wait on me. Have fun!

Are there any wives or significant others going? MY6 is doing the Desert Challenge Friday and since I'm not, I'll be looking for something else to do (riding or otherwise).

I'm leaving from San Antonio Thursday morning if you or anyone else needs a ride.

I've also got room to haul gear in the truck if anyone needs.

When were you planning to leave out from SA, and what side of town? Are you offering a spot for rider, bike, and gear... or just some gear?

Does anyone need a Queen sgl hotel room for Thurs & Fri night at Big Bend Resort. My daughter was going to make this ride, but came down with the flu. I was planning to just camp out at Garreth Park, so don't really need this room. Too late to CXL now without penalty. Cost is $80 per night +tax. Would rather sell it back to someone who really needs it if I can.

Hurt myself racing on the track 2 weeks ago. Not able to make it this year due to a list of injuries, aches, and pains. Ya'll have a great time.

Anyone else who wants to ride, but couldn't make this trip, I'll be going in 4-6 weeks for a 7 day trip with room for more.

Sounds like a good way to get hurt, posting from the phone while on the road!




Get in the car already, it's faster that way!:nana:
