    If you're headed to THC, say hi to DWalt for me. I bought his Jeep 2 years ago.

    Kevin ...

    Get the free map of the southern edition of The TX hill country...
    I'll get the full route typed out for ya.....
    Our TX friends took us on what they said was the BEST roads in TX ....
    Ride 335/336/337 AKA the 3 sisters... Also check out TX16 ... It's nothing like our roads .. But cool... A whole lot of Exotic game hunting places there !!
    The same antelope/deer that they have in Africa !!!
    Some curves,and roller coasters type roads... Great rock/sandstone views..
    I hope to get my RR up before YOU head out :deal

    And as for timing... Well we went to The Gathering of the Fools in Friendswood,TX.. And that is put on by our good friends...
    So of course it was 4/1 weekend.....

    Took the old DR 650 out and explored some local trails this afternoon. :D

    Sometimes the creek IS the trail!

    Found out how the ATVs are crossing the interstate! :lol3

    [​IMG]












    Yeah, I parked short and had a peek on foot before making the crossing myself. :norton

    [​IMG]

    Now getting across here may be a bit of a challenge! :uhoh

    [​IMG]











    Another option was to go into the deep water on the left then turn hard to the right and hit another trail. :patch

    [​IMG]












    Yep, still on foot thinking about it! :lol3

    ROBBLE met up with me to do a little more scouting for the RDV on Friday, for Friday's ride, does that make sense? :lol3

    [​IMG]












    It was dusty up there today, real dusty.

    [​IMG]












    The back yard @ Freebornes will be home to the RDV once again this year.....tiki bar has not been replaced yet though. :dunno

    [​IMG]












    That's a fine looking crop of Christmas trees, don't you think? :D

    This sand and pea gravel covered chip seal type pavement can be some sketchy stuff for a bike! :uhoh

    The New River...said to be the oldest on the continent? :huh

    [​IMG]

    I don't think that I made that up...but I didn't double check my facts either so... :norton












    [​IMG]












    ROBBLE is just happy to see that wooden bridge because it means a break from the dust....for a few seconds anyway! :D

    This is a repeat from last year but going in the opposite direction so it's like a whole different road, right.....right? :evil

    [​IMG]

    The dust wasn't so bad where it hadn't been recently graded :thumb maybe the rest of it will get settled in by rally time.
