I left the house at about 7:00. Headed east on Hwy 29, took FM 1331, 908, 116, Hwy 20 and Hwy 30. Thanks to Gilk51 for bringing my light stand for me, and I really enjoyed talking Bandits with JR. I stopped for fuel and water and was approached by another R1200GS rider who chatted about GS's for a bit. Hopefully he'll make his way here soon. No mishaps, no close call, just a perfect day for riding 350 miles.
