I need to teach you the forgiveness vs. permission method. :trust:
Dude you could get rich if you patented your variation of that method and taught classes.

Surely Rhonda wonders every time you leave if you're going to come home on the same bike you left on that morning?

Last time I took a day off for no good reason she asked what I was up to. She said she was afraid to come home and look in the garage. :rider:

How are campsites determined? Are they assigned or is it first come/first served? If we come, we'll be towing a 30 ft RV...

I'm signed up for TAR, but I think I could make this one also. Will there be route maps or GPS coordinates,... or will this be a large group that has to stay together? I read the thread and based on the Gas-Up-Together rule I'd say its a group ride,...Correct?

Thanks,
K

I may be interested in this ride. Do I need to make my own tent reservation or use the ones you have reserved? Are they for both Friday and Saturday night or just Saturday.

It would be most accurate to say the action arrived at Leeroy's site.

We will have route sheets, HOWEVER, in the past we've only had route sheets so that we had something to deviate from. Anybody is free to do their own thing or split off from the group if necessary, BUT at least in pairs if splitting off, and make sure the ride leaders know a general direction and route you're taking, and what time you plan to be back. Depending on the number of participants, multiple groups are also possible.

Tent reservations are made for Friday through Sunday night. Just say so, and you'll have a spot.

Matt, did you actually use the TWT name for the reservations? Or is it in your name? (Assuming there is a block of spaces reserved).

There is a block of 5 spots, 2 tents per spot (which you would know if you read the thread!) reserved in my name. For some reason, they wouldn't accept payment from my TWT credit card.

So!

Please mark me down for both nights. Do you want us to pay you when we get there?

I promise my tent will only take up one space now that I have a smaller one. I plan to ride the FJR down, since I will be at TAR 2 weeks later with the DRZ.

Thanks STRider. I'm a maybe right now. Trying to clear up some things so I can go that weekend.

Yah, that'll be the deal. I had to reserve the first night for each spot, so everybody will pay me for the first night, and then pay the park directly for the rest. With people doing various nights, we may have some math to work out, but it'll work out.

Unless you have a giant M.A.S.H. type army tent, fitting more than one into a spot isn't a problem.

One or more of the hotels in Burnet may have something.

Sheesh Buzz, you go more than 3 months between posts, and you saved it up for that? Everybody's a comedian.:roll:

So I can put you down in the "d" list? Can a person of uhhhh... advanced maturity handle tent camping?:trust:

Now, now! There's no reason for that. :rant: I believe your beef should be with Squeaky. She's the one that is ALWAYS "stirring up the pot".

As far as camping, I live to camp. Just make sure there are tents between me and Squeaky.:lol2:

Can you add me as a "D"? :loco: NEVER ! :thumbd: I'm always a "M". I require sunshine :sun: throughout the extended 10 day forecast. I think I'll wait for your Spring trip to Arkansas. I enjoyed the last one; although I didn't get to spend enough quality time with you. Maybe this year? :rider:

Hey now - I think I was the only one NOT snoring among the 7 or 8 tent in Terlingua. :mrgreen:

Oh, and Matt - The second morning of the trip, after I started the XR cold (first thing in the morning) with ONE kick - Scott proclaimed, "Matt would be proud". ;-)

Seems things are already tense between you and Squeak. Does Bill know about this?

This is the Spring trip for me. Ar/Mo maybe in the fall. I'm on a 1 trip/season ride diet.

Proposed Route 1.
[Butting in where probably not needed...]

Assuming a clockwise loop on the lower end:

How about, instead of taking boring 41 over to boring I-10, cut off on FM1340 thru Hunt & Ingram back to Kerrville, thence onward. It's a pretty nice road sorta along the Guadalupe.

Butting is always appreciated. I plotted that ccw, but cw works too. My only concern is mileage, 350 can be a lot for some folks, particularly in a group on unfamiliar, technical roads. If the mileage & difficulty isn't a lot more that'd be fine. If it is a lot more miles & difficulty, we could split up as necessary.

AND (for every/anybody): Nobody should feel committed or required to the "planned" routes. This is a rally, rather than a tour, so you can just do your own thing, or a group thing, or smaller groups. Just make sure we know what your doing so we don't think we've lost you.

... If anyone departing from the DFW area would like some extra haulin' space, my SO will be following Soozy and I down to Inks in a pickup. He'll have plenty o' room for coolers, musical instruments, or whatever else you may or may not be able to pack on the bike...

Me too, 'cept from NW Houston. Anybody want coolers, bags, gear, whatever carried up, meet up with me during the week prior. First come first served. I'll also set up a quick pre-ride-meeting/get together somewhere on the NW side of town Friday morning if necessary.

I do need to borrow a decent ramp, or I'll split towing costs if somebody wants to supply a trailer.

1 month away, do you know where your reservations are?:trust:

Ummm...should I call in and make my own reservation?? How many tents are allowed at one site? I should probably get myself secluded because of the snoring I will be doing.

Two tents per spot. Maximum 8 persons per spot. The spots we get should be adjoining, so the boundaries of the 2/8 rules may be flexible. In short, as long as we don't have more than 10 tents or 40 people on our loop, we likely won't get bothered by the Mounties.

Nope. s'done.

By my count, the confirmed tent campers are:

STScott Scott ST
STrider Matt Sprint ST
DFW_Warrior Bill DL1k
Squeaky Rebecca DL1k
jbh jbh FJR
echo_boom Rachel Ninja 250
Soozy Soozy Burg 650
Tracker Gary Speed Triple (brit bike evil twin)

If you see your name on the list above, you:
1. DO NOT need to do anything for tent reservations except show up. We'll work out the payment situation there.
2. NEED TO TELL ME if you are NOT planning on tent camping w/ the group.

If you do not see your name on the list and ARE planning on tent camping, LET ME KNOW.
