Know what you mean. Some years like that for sure.Yes. It'll be down to the low 90s by the time of this ride.
God bless you and I hope all goes well. FWIW, my father lived 30 years with a pacemaker and the last 10 years or so it's the only reason his heart beat. He did go through 2 or 3 of them in that time. We'll pray.I am hoping that I will still be able to go. I got stung by a hornet that had some very bad bacteria on it's stinger. I spent 8 days in the hospital due to my lower right leg going sepsis because of the sting on the strongest IV antibiotics. I came home with 17 more days of high dose IV antibiotics delivered thru a PICC line. This also has uncovered a blockage in my heart, I will have a heart cath in a few days, as soon as it can be scheduled. And I may still have to have a pacemaker according to the cardiologist. I will figure it out in a couple of weeks.
You need to concentrate on becoming healthy. Best of luckI am hoping that I will still be able to go. I got stung by a hornet that had some very bad bacteria on it's stinger.

Hi Mike, I've checked it out on Google maps and is really neat place. How many acres is it do you have a couple of hobby cows for your ag exemption. I have a pickup and motorcycle carrier that I sleep in but it's short and shouldn't take up much room.Happy to hear you can make it. There are several areas to park and camp some are wide open pasture easier for cars/trucks/trailers and other areas have numerous oak trees that should work fine. Some are a little walk from the food...
I will try to put up some pictures with arial views and pictures of the area. Thank goodness for the recent rains, we should have wonderul green grasses with sounds of the creek to enjoy.
Those pics taken from maps were burnt up hot times, I bet it's nice and green nowThank you it’s my wife’s mother’s place I am the only guy stupid enough o do all the work lol
There is about 65 acres we also picked up the place across the creek to the south it has a big tree house on the creek on it that is pretty cool.
There is some. Ice river frontage too with a great spring that has never run dry that we have heard.

Finding the problem and solution is the most difficult part in my business. Now that you know what's wrong, it will be corrected and you will start feeling better. Your on your way to a better lifeI am going to have to cancel. My heart cath discovered that the blockages (4) require bypass surgery and the doctor also found a leaky valve that needs to be surgically repaired as well. So I will be releasing my room at Junction. No riding for a while. Surgery next week or the week after that one.
This^. Hope you can come out and visit.I am very sorry to hear all of that the cardiologist friend of mine told me if you’re going to have medical problems you better hope it’s the heart because they know how to work on that better than any other organ in the body wish you the best and a speedy recovery you could always come out Friday night and say hi at least

I'm sorry to hear of your troubles, but glad you have a diagnosis and a treatment plan. This is likely but a temporary delay in your riding plan. Prayers and best wishes for a complete recovery.I am going to have to cancel.

I’m “local” and might be able to help set up the course, let me know.Maybe the time change will allow an extra hour to drink ?
Jorge, be careful offering, I plan on being out every weekend up to the event getting things ready, if you are looking for a little manual labor I would be happy to find something for you to do
I also want to work on laying out some type of slow speed obstacle course that will be a little challenging for the bigger bikes then some things like log jumping for the smaller bikes. If anybody wants to help one of these weekends that would be great. I have a lot of railroad ties and a couple of downed trees I have been saving for this purpose.
There was someone on this site that attended the BMW Adventure training class and had the specs on how to lay it out, would be fun to see what they did.
It is those unusual rides we remember most , rightLooks like I won't make the 500 afterall - going to do some riding at Barnwell for the weekend. That said a friend and I rode parts of Day 1 route then carved off to Comfort. - pavement with fun twisties. Stayed at Garner State Park and got woken up at 4:30 AM by the Park Rangers that we had to move to higher ground since we were tent camping along the lower level by the FRIO river. Come to find out the water was only 16 yards away from our bikes. Was all normal the evening before. Needless to say this was a crazy experience. I decided worst case I'd ride the bikes to higher ground and let all my camping gear go if I could not make it intime. We were packing like crazy. The Park Ranger came by 30 minutes later and said they believe the water peaked so that was encouraging. In anycase we kept packing up and left at 8:00 AM. We had plans to ride the 3 sisters but they were all shut down due to flooding. We decided to head to Utopia, Vanderpool, then took 87 past Lost Maples up to 39, then to Kerville (nice ride on 39 thru Hunt. Stopped for photo at Stone Henge 2 at Ingram). When we left Vanderpool the heavens open and it was a massive downpour all the way to Hunt. Soaked to say the least. Put the 1090r in Rain Mode and ole "snoopy" did great. Turned on the grip warmers since it was starting to get cold w/ soaked gloves (I really need to find a nice set of water proof gloves). Oh well. Always an adventure. Gave me a new respect for rain storms upstream. When we crossed the Frio on the way out to Utopia it was like a raging river and very wide w/ a ton of debris. Total opposite the day before where we were taking to tubers casually floating along the river. Ya'll have fun on the 500. I don't think you'll have any issues with dust.
Good questionGang, I was just wondering for all of those planning to camp on Saturday night in Junction, what is the state of the facilities after the recent storm? From what I understand they took the worst hit from this past storm and the RV park is just gone from what I hear.
