Maybe I will run into you out there. I should arrive in Fredericksburg or Kerrvile Tuesday night. I will probably stay in Kerrvile as my home base for a couple of days since there are few more hotel choices there. I will probably head back to Conroe on Friday.

Send me a message on my cell 612-381-7952 and maybe we can meetup or do dinner.

Thanks, John

What windshield is that on your V-Strom? And what about panniers for your travels? I recently purchased a new-to-me 2009 V-Strom 650 and those are two things I will be needing.

Look at all of that health food during your journeys. :-)

There are some amazing looking places to stop for a meal during the tour if the timing lined up better. The weather has been awesome this week in this region.

Thanks, John
