STROM A THON MOVES TO APR 22-24TH.... come Thurs if ya want
more to come I'm sure
we'll be gathering info for the event from various supporting businesses over the next month or so.... OH...& everyone's welcome... NOT just Stroms
bring your... ApriliaBMWBuellCanAmDucatiHarleyHondaKawasakiKTMMotoGuzziRoyalEnfieldSuzukiTriumphVictoryYamaha.... whatever.... or...I was sent this PM by Paul (V Lust) here on TWT.... I REMEMBER & LIKE IT >>>
Rod You remember the V-Strom only RTEs that we had a few years ago. Maybe Strom-a-thon needs to adopt Chuck's (Gilk51) rules for those.
Now, the rules:
Note: Only V-Strom riders allowed! *
*** NO EXCEPTIONS *** (*)
* - see fine print
{fine print} *V-Strom Only = All riders/owners of V-Stroms (DL650 or DL1000). Also, ex-owners, ex-owners that are now current owners (again), triple-ex-owners (!), friends of V-Strom owners, other riders that have talked about or touched a V-Strom. OK, even if you know that the V-Strom is a model made by Suzuki... {end fine print}

SATURDAY SUPPER AT BADU HOUSE IN LLANO
We need an estimated head count of those folks who would b interested in Saturday Supper & live music at Badu House Restaurant (by invitation only... not open to general public)
SUPPER UPDATE 4-14
Jus spoke with Stan at The Badu House in Llano....
They will have suppers both Fri & Sat nites... 6-10PM ...45 different beers + many wines avail
Each nite will feature wood grilled Akaushi Steak & Shrimp for $30 & either Fish or Shrimp n Chips for $11-12

Friday nite entertainment will be singer songwriter Texicana style ala Robert Earl Keen or similar

Saturday.... its more guitar oriented stuff.... with a Pink Floyd slant

Stan said he expects somewhere around 100 folks over the evening each nite...so our little group is just that.
We'll still have a separate seating area though.

Well, double dagnabbit and foggy frogs...won't be able to make the dates work--conflicts with a little trip to old Mexico. Guess I can't have my pie and eat it too. :(

Re: !TAXES?...no .. TEXAS!!! .. STROM-A-THON III Llano Tx APR 15-17th 2016

Strom-A-Thon is being moved up a couple of weeks this year.... to Apr 15-17 to catch more of the Spring wildflowers.... hopefully

...sorry for the conflict with some folks plans, but REALLY wanted S-A-T to have a beautiful landscape this year. The first & second events were timed more to the tail end of the bluebonnet season in this area.

Dates conflict for me as well. Smack dab between an already existing partial date overlap between Mexico and Arizona rides. Looks like I'll be missing Llano gathering two years in a row.

Looks like I'm out again this year, folks. My wife has a conflict with a church event, so I'll need to home with my mother. We're share caregiving duties & can't be gone the same weekend. Maybe next year.

I may be interested in this trip! Is there any release yet on camping/lodging?

Camping is always the same. Robinson City Park in Llano. Basically, it's just a big grassy area with oak trees for shade, and some picnic tables. Pick a spot and throw your tent. Camping is $5 a night. There's a latrine in the tenter's area, and a shower house over where the trailers hang out. If you want to hotel it instead, Hotels.com is your friend. There aren't any group arrangements made.

I had planned on going, but just found out last week that there's a conflict with a church retreat my wife will be attending. Since we share care giving duties with my mother, I'll be staying home so she can go on the retreat. Well, there's always next year.....

I saw that Tim. :/ well have to catch you on the next one if i go.
Well, the camp situation is right up my alley so long as they allow the trees to be used for hammoking. Either way is good though.
Thank you Tim.

Re: !TAXES?...no .. TEXAS!!! .. STROM-A-THON III Llano Tx APR 15-17th 2016

They won't mind your using the trees. However, you might want to pull up the 2014 or 2015 thread & look at some campground pictures. I don't know that you'll find 2 trees close enough together to sling a hammock. Some of the other guys might weigh in on that & either verify, or correct me on that.

It's a great time there. Llano has terrific hole-in-the wall cafes. The people who run the campground are friendly and helpful, and love TWTers to death (they've had HD clubs, and they can sure tell the difference in behavior and noise level). There are usually 2 or 3 organized rides on Saturday - offroad rides that may split into to water-crossing and no-water-crossing rides, and pavement-only rides for wimps like me. Get yourself a Butler map of the hill country, or have Rod (Mr2Mch) bring one for you - those maps are golden for the paved backroads in the area. And take a lot of pictures so I'll be envious and possibly end up hating my wife.
