I just HATE to disappoint my adoring fans when I post early and then have to back out. I just wait until I am sure.

OR I could tell the truth...which is this: I am too random to plan that far ahead.

The truth hurts. But then WE RIDE!:rider:

Do you have a DFW to Hutto route set up yet?
Nothing written but here it is (now): :yawn:

Staging at the same old Minyards as before: 6:45 AM (Yes, I know, it's still dark then)
LeMans start at precisely 7:00 (I can't be late again)

Route:
slab I20 and I35W to US67 @ Alvarado (get a quick start)
US67 business into Cleburne
SH174 south to FM933 near Blum
FM933 to Whitney
SH22 west to Laguna Park
FM56 south to Valley Mills
SH6 east a block or two (gas & rest stop - roughly half way)
SH317 south through McGregor and Moody and SH36
SH36 and US190 around Temple to 95
95 south to Taylor loop (397 I think)
Loop around Taylor to US79
US79 to Hutto

Return route open - probably similar but may go back thru Meridian instead...

-------

I think Steve and Wendy are planning to leave a little later if this is too early. Maybe they will pipe in.

How does that sound?
:rider: :eat: :rider:

you can know where or when, but not both

You guys could make it to the Houston start at 290 & Huffmeister in plenty of time. KSU @ 8:30.

If I may offer a perhaps safe suggestion on directions. Hwy 79 is very busy and on the fast side. East street (where Debbie's Pies is located) does not have a traffic light where it intersects with Hwy 79. Those coming from the west on 79 will have to cross on coming traffic and watch your backside as there is no turning lane. It may be safer to proceed a hundred feet to the traffic light at 1660 which has a turning lane and a turn on green signal. Go one block, turn left on Farley, right on East St. Also, as you make the turn onto 1660 you can actually see Debbie's Pies across the open field to the left.

+1 on going to the light to turn. 79 traffic is not good through Hutto, the lanes are combined and there aren't protected left turns except at the light. Good heads up Art.

Well, in the interest of the safety and wellfare of my fellow Two Wheel Texans, I had pie and tea at the Texan Cafe today during a beautiful Friday afternoon ride east of Round Rock, just to make sure it was up to the high standards of this group. It was excellent as usual. They are ready for us tomorrow, they were expecting 50, I told them the last count was 50-65....they are really nice, stated we can park in the lot across the street for overflow parking, they open at 11am....Bill

For those coming from the north, taking Hwy 29 in Georgetown to 1660 bypasses 79 altogether and is a much less stimulating ride. You can do the same thing coming south on 95.

Thanks for the recon, Bill. I was tied up in meetings all afternoon and didn't get a chance to call them. So, thanks for giving them the warning, too! ;-)

We will be doing 95 and will add this to the tail end. Thanks, Kurt! :thumb:

list updated (see post #1)

Count: 62 def + 7 prob = 69, 8 maybe

Now, if you want a pre-printed nametag, I need to know that you are coming, so announce it here & provide your real name so I can add that to the tag so they will look like this:

Looks like Pie Town, NM is out. :giveup: We was going to be leading a group of 1 :doh: so instead I decided I will do a DS :flip: ride to Cloud Croft for the pie. Have a great time tomorrow.
