Half household is sick so I'm not going to make it at all. Dodey said he'd tote it in his truck.

It was a good time! I made it home ahead of the rain and need a rest. The Rally Raid was fun but wore me out. I should have some video, eventually.

Thanks Tom and Doty! What a great group of riders you managed to pull together. Afrom what I saw, fine time was had by all, and the location was wonderful! Excellent campground facilities, with staff that was truly delighted to have us there. All in a setting of super fun riding terrain. Not to mention that big giant lake we camped beside, with all it's recreation oportunities. I really enjoyed riding on the ranch in the offroad challenge. For those who didn't witness it, this was a TRUE offroad challenge. To be sure, that course was no pushover! Such a rare treat to be able to ride real dirt all day, while participating in a large rally. That place still has huge untapped trail potential too! I will be looking forward to more Possum Kingdom rallies, and more outings on that ranch property in the future. Once again, Well done guys! :clap:

Thanks folks. The more correct thank you would be "thank you Dody and the Dis-Organizing Committee and Volunteers". I am just one of several. BigDave and his boys, Cleatus, Grinder, DRZ-Bri, the ever popular TXjames, Brad and our landowner host. ( I am forgetting somebody ??????) And planning and route help from several more.
This is one of Dody's babies and he's the one stressing. We just like to have big fun. . And if it all turns to crap it's all his fault. We gots "Plausible deniability."

I plan to tap the potential and I will need help. Some to cut and some to be guinea pig riders. I have a start where I want it to go but have not found a way down. I also have another possible venue to go along with RTB this year. Trail cutting is tough work. especially when Texas heat comes on!:doh:

SUPER THANK YOU TO ALL THAT HELPED!!!!! SlowOldGuy, Mr Queen, Cleatus, Grinder, DRZBRIAN,Wacodirtyrider(GPXfiles), RICK, BIGDAVE and the boys... TXJAMES you rode like an acid rat jacked up in those first brush busting forays!!!! I will try to find you some help next time! My goal is to get everyone a chance to have good time...I hope all did! Thanks to all that attended. I was happy with the event even with the weather.

To the Challenge riders...I am sorry about the course marking issues. Waterlogged course marking arrows and 40 mph winds made some areas obscure.

To all....BEAT THE HEAT campout at Ghost Rancho, May 15-17,2015
Brad will be teaching IXL class on Saturday the 16:chug:

Here are a few. I've got a few more I need to get off of my phone. I've also started editing some video taken on the ride and hopefully will have that done in the next day or so. I was enjoying riding too much to have taken a lot of pictures. :doh:

A big ol thank you to everyone that helped put this event together! I had a great time and managed to make it there in time on Saturday morning to get a good ride in and managed to get back home yesterday afternoon without getting wet... The only thing that I wish I would have done was take more photos, I can't believe I only took two photos on the trip. I guess I was too busy having fun!

Prepare yourselves. I may have more pictures of the rally than my children’s births…


SOG and I start late running sweep

IMG_0057_zpsi3mo1msh.jpg



Quaint Texas town at its finest

IMG_0059_zpsxeghxpa3.jpg



SOG was moving too fast for me to get him in frame. I was left with this

IMG_0063_zps0m1xsydv.jpg



Wasn’t long and we found some folks enjoying Macabee. Here’s Aaron at the crossing

IMG_0065_zpsb826fmo8.jpg



Chandler clears it with ease

IMG_0069_zpsovjanueq.jpg



Somewhere along the way things go awry

IMG_0074_zpsaaonusae.jpg



My Macabee pals head off to lunch and I continue on to meet up with these two. Jose left the 80/20 tread pattern I kept seeing on Macabee!!

IMG_0076_zpsipedrw3h.jpg



Along comes Garfey

IMG_0081_zpsfhviod1l.jpg



Big pig attraction

IMG_0084_zps3sf6e9jt.jpg



What a perfect day for riding!

Hooked back up with the gang outside Fort Griffin

Then SOG has a brilliant idea

We finish up the route strong and head back for the festivities

IMG_0111_zps8fjfsqoi.jpg



Safely, of course! Observe GRINDER’s proper blinker usage

IMG_0110_zpsfft5upt1.jpg



Dual sporting in Texas doesn’t get much better than this folks!
