    Yes, if nothing else can you please post the routes. I don’t have or do gps yet so if you can post or message me the road numbers for the routes that would be great. I have the MUUV Maps or whatever they are called from the Forest Service that show all the forest and backroads so if you cancel please message me route with numbers as I’m coming up either way.

    I also wouldn't mind getting the GPX files or even the just road numbers, I'm not that far away and have wanted to get more familiar with that area since moving up here last year.

    Hi Mike:

    I just canceled my room for Hillbilly and S10 Rally. Currently under a Shelter in Place order that I am guessing will keep getting extended until the CV mess is under control. If you reschedule, it would be great if you did it a weekend opposite of the S10 Rally so Linda and I could come up for the whole week and do both events.

    Let me add something that may be helpful to you (not picking on you just quoting you as it pertains to this subject) and others in your situation. I put on many rides using a GPX file and it is a bit of work for those that do these gratis for others. To do the same route by giving turn by turn with road numbers is a major job, hours of time. Don't take my word for it, grab a map and route out 400 miles of back roads using road numbers and names, just to see how it works. I don't think those that don't do these rides for others realize how much effort guys like advmgm put in to this.

    To help those without a gps here's some advice.

    1) Down load a free map program like Garmin BaseCamp or many others. Download the GPX track file to that. Screen shot and print yourself a map. Or do your own route sheet with pen and paper, with road numbers from the map. Actually BaseCamp has a option to print a route sheet.

    Or 2) You can also convert the GPX file to a KML file with the help for websites like...
    https://www.gpsvisualizer.com/map_input?form=googleearth

    Just paste the file as a GPX in the blank marked 1#. Click "create KML file". Now you can open it on Google Earth all for FREE. And again make any kind of route sheet or map that will work for you.

    Then to be a real sweetheart post your route sheet or map to help others in the ADVrider community that could use it.

    Okay, I just informed Debbie at Marble Falls that due to the current situation with the virus THIS EVENT WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO LATE SEPTEMBER OR EARLY OCTOBER.

    I don't have the new date yet as I am waiting on the Yamaha Super Tenere group to decide upon their date in either late September or early October so we can be either right before or after their rally as several of you want to attend both.

    Stand by for further announcements.

    Hey folks, October is going to be a very busy month for Marble Falls Resort.

    I know its a long way out but I suggest you go ahead and reserve a room with Debbie if you can.

    I heard Bass Pro just bought the whole old Dog Patch for back taxes, like over 1 million? You hear anything?
