Even the small bores wouldn't go any further.....



Their owners were pretty excited to have the sand done for the night.

They were feeling a little frisky and when I mentioned how I would caption the photos
in the Utard thread they erased them. I don't let people see my camera anymore.

My humble abode for the next month or so (and yes that is clear blue morning sky taken 10 minutes ago). As some of you know I am a retired Nomad and this is my pitch in Southern Spain till after Christmas. After that I will be returning to a cold and wet England to prep for my trip to the Americas. I will try and sneak in a quick skiing trip to Italy before I come over.

I will see if I can get a couple of copies of our local Jehovas Witnesses manuals for Pluric before I come.

I love retirement


Happy now Desert Dave ???

No problem, I'll have a couple guys waiting for you.

Looks like it's thirsty work being a Mormon. Oh well at least they are good looking guys. Every cloud has a silver rim !

We will be arriving in Texas in about early September. We have a rendesvous with some old mates in LA on or about 2 Sep and we will be riding East from then on intending to enter Mexico possibly at Laredo. So whereabouts on the coast are you ?

How can I possibly disagree with an argument like that?

My girlfriend and I did a northern trip last summer from Texas and caught the Dust to Dawson (not) Rally in the Yukon Territory around the Solstice, as well as rode the Dempster to Inuvik. D2D is highly worthy, and y'all could possibly be the guests who had travelled the greatest distance (last year it was a dude from Germany). Y'all have fun regardless!

150 miles straight up the coast from Mexico at Brownsville - in Corpus Christi, TX. It's also about the same distance nearly due east of Laredo.

Gotta' be honest, though. Given your route mentioned above there really are two spots in Texas you shouldn't miss. One is Big Bend. September is still a bit early as it will still be pretty friggin' *HOT*, but the entire Big Bend area is simply indescribable in both its beauty and isolation. Ton of great dirt road riding there, too, with terrific camping spots. Google it some. It's definitely worth your while.

The other, as mentioned before, is the Texas Hill Country. Where else can you find some of the country's best road riding, dirt road exploration riding, and an outstanding vintage motorcycle museum specializing in Brit iron and run by an Aussie, all in the same place? The "Lone Star Motorcycle Museum" is in Vanderpool, right in the middle of some of the best riding and scenery in all of Texas, and they even serve great Aussie meat pies!

Here's some links that may help you a bit, especially these first two... The guy has some terrific rides guides for both Big Bend and the Texas Hill Country, an his maps of Big Bend are even better:

http://texasadventure.net/

https://sites.google.com/site/texasdualsportroads/

http://www.lonestarmotorcyclemuseum.com/

http://www.lonestarloops.com/

http://www.friocanyonmotorcyclestop.com/

There's lots of other resources, but maybe those will whet your appetite a bit!

What it sounds like we need to do is arrange a ride get-together in the Texas Hill Country to greet you when you get down here!

OTOH, if you want to come over and visit the Texas Gulf Coast it'll be great, too. The riding isn't nearly as good, but the view and the food makes up for it...
