DAL/FTW: DFW TARA BS Thread

My thoughts with this thread are to have a common place to ask questions, makes suggestions or just BS a little. I will be posting as things come up or I have ideas. I'll be subscribed to this thread but won't be posting everyday or be controlling the thread. It is for the DFW folks to have a common place to communicate. The more active the thread is the more I will be around.

I am still waiting for feedback before scheduling the first DFW TARA M&G. To be honest I haven't received as much feedback or as many suggestions as I had hoped for either the M&G or local rides,

The only common theme so far is that DFW is too big geographically to have one central M&G. Since I live in Fort Worth the first M&G when scheduled will be on the West side of DFW.

Most of my personal riding for this year was pretty much planned prior to talking to Richard so I thought I would throw out what my Adventure riding plans are for 2017:

4/7 thru 4/9 Sup-A-Ten Versys Strom-A-Thon

Dates and details still tentative

5/19 thru 5/22 SLAP

Seeing that schedule makes me realize how much more I need to be participating in the group rides... My only commit so far is the Great Divide Ride!

Well, how about a ride North an East? LBJ grasslands or Jacksboro maybe. Sat morning breakfast and lunch near the trails.
Disclaimer. I haven't been on these trails.....yet.

I think that is a great suggestion. I have ridden up there but don't really have a planned loop of any kind. Let me see what I can dig up.

Myself & a few guys will be riding up to the Wichita Mtns this weekend & camp. Meers burger Sat evening. Anyone interested?

Looks like I'm missing another trip up there... Will be down in Gun Barrel City helping out my dad for the weekend. Can you post a Meers report? My last trip there I waited about two hours for a dried out burger and burned cobbler. Hoping it was just a bad day.

i have found the only way to visit Meers for a burger is if you get there when they open 10:30 and have an early lunch.

Guys, I'm thinking of having a campout at my place the weekend of March 11 / 12. I have cabins with bunk beds, out door showers, & a fire pit. I'd like to meet up that Saturday for an early lunch in Graham, ride local backroads, then camp about dark. Maybe get up Sunday & ride to breakfast / brunch. Would anyone be interested?
