I just came here to post this https://cbsaustin.com/news/local/video-catastrophic-flooding-on-llano-riverweather nation 10/16/18 10:45am:
2nd highest crest on llano river and bridge collapse in kingsland texas
but of course , everything flows away from junction so i guess this is down stream happening.
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.
Turn around! Don't drown!Here are two pics of the low water crossing. At first I wasn't worried, but it is getting higher and higher
Sorry to hear you can't make it, hopefully you can next year!
As to showers, if the rain stops long enough this weekend I am trying to move and setup our fifth wheel trailer near the new barn. This has an outdoor shower that I have used many times, but that is when nobody is around. I am going to try and rig up some type of privacy screen and with some cement pavers make a little outdoor shower area. At least that would be an option, I will know more after this weekend and post an update.
Also, I will work with Richard to update the origional post, but due to the increadable turnout of over 70 people for Friday night, I am switching the food up to some catered BBQ. More details to come, but this way Mary and I don't have to stress about that many mouths to feed and I can have fun too There is a local restarunt that will supply all the food, fixings and even a nice desert.
Will still have a hot grill for those that want to bring their own special food to cook. As well as at least one fire pit, may need a second for the size of the crowd.
Lets hope for a little bit of dry weather a couple of days before the ride.
Water crossings are probably going to be deeper than normal and the James River is on route, I believe on day 2. Add Lots of dirt, sand, gravel and long days in the saddle make this questionable.Can anyone tell me if this ride would be safe to bring my daughter on? Not sure what kind of dirt roads we will be encountering and having a passenger.

The James River is not on the route for either day. When planning the route I left it off due to a) riders likely not wanting to cross it with loaded down bikes and b) the possibility of cold weather (nobody wants to be wet and cold at the same time).Water crossings are probably going to be deeper than normal and the James River is on route, I believe on day 2.

Thanks. I would like to ride in a group with another Strom. It'll give me an idea on how "adventurous" I should be.The Strom is a great traveling bike. Comfortable, good mileage, and plenty of carrying capacity. It will do fine on most of the gravel and dirt we'll be hitting. My only real worry is patches of deep sand, but i'll survive. Look for me in Johnson City if you want a group to ride with.

Did you call them? A large number of rooms was blocked for this event, but you have to call and mention the rally to get the $77 price. If they are completely sold out, check with the Rodeway Inn next door to the BW.Looks like the Best Western Junction is sold out so if anyone can recommend another place around there I'd appreciate the guidance.
