Assume that Mrs. StG recognized you after you got home (after a shower) . . . or was she wondering about the strange man that was now wandering about looking for food?
Haha. Thanks RRR. Not sure why, but for some reason she still welcomes me back

Thanks for the comments guys. I hope to go back & do the whole thing sometime this year as well

Great good to know. WRT is a great ride especially if you can open it up and not worry about traffic, very easy trail. I assumed Lockhart Basin was more challenging. Looks like a great trail.

Excellent RR and pictures

Thanks StG for taking the time.
Great RR and pictures.
Ever consider becoming an Official Tour Guide and Provider of Sweeper Support?
I am glad your listened to your 'wife's voice in your head'--doing crazy stuff while riding alone can become a "WTF was I thinking' moment very quickly.

I had a great time staring at your rear end last week on the WRT, hope you liked mine.

Wait a minute, I should word that differently.

Nice hanging with you, as always, StG!

Fantastic report and an inspiration to many.

The man...
