Youzguys had mentioned the Life360 app so we can keep track of each other....I already have the app on my phone and we used it on a trip to Suches a couple years ago.

It might be fun to start the app as we begin the trip and we can see how each other are moving along as we head toward Texas.

We are leaving the morning of April 9th and hopefully returning home on the evening of April 18th......so the Life360 session should be open for that period of time for us (your time period may be shorter/longer).

I just got off the phone with Steve (Hammer) he is having to bow out as an important, high paying job has come up for him that will run through the week of the 12th. Which means I will probably take the S-40 on the ride if I can get a few items taken care of by then.

I have begun to make some preparations:

Changed oil in car, license sticker for the trailer, added a USB charging port on the motorcycle......and a new pair of riding pants (MM doesn't think it is appropriate to ride a BMW wearing jeans).

I have started thinking about routes and places.
I know places of interest include:
StoneHinge - (they might be scheduled for oiling).
Three Twisted Sisters - (shouldn't go on Wednesday, store is close).
Alamo Springs Cafe - (for MM's burger) - only open Fri, Sat, Sun. (since when??)
Hillbillyz - (cause I said so) only open Fri, Sat, Sun.  hmmmm.. may need to by pass
more as I think of them

If you have druthers and where and what, let me know.  I'll figure out when and how.

Huh

So durning the week ...
I'm thinking - there is a big grill on the deck of the cabin ?    We could do something like :   Everybody pick-out what they want at the grocery store , then slap it on the grill at the same time .   I could bring my big crock-pot too.   The cabin has some pots and pans too ?     Remember how handy that grill was that Dave and Deb brought was ?    I've got a Stove-top grill I can bring and the cabin has a stove !   Wink   Two stove-top grills would be good if anybody else has one.
Think , 5 pound bag of Skinless-Boneless Chicken Breast glazed in BBQ sauce under a sheet of aluminum foil on a grill top !!! Tongue
Na , not yet !  Grin


Our first night in the Cabin will be Sunday night the 11th. and our last night will be Friday .     But that can be modified by the will of our fellow Cabin-mates and the good will of the folks running the park.
...................

Dave I know your an early riser , so we'll expect  you for breakfast most morning , and I kind of suspect you like cooking as much as I do ?  Smiley

O'yea , .....

(MM doesn't think it is appropriate to ride a BMW wearing jeans).
 


Your right Dave , everybody knows BMW ridders " MUST MATCH the BIKE ! " .    
Anything less and you would just be a Guzzi or Savage person on a BMW .   Grin

Grin Grin Grin

So , Marcia ask if you'll be wearing White Pants ??? ... I'm guessing they would be a Contrasting or Complimenting , Reflective  color .  Undecided

Dave don't forget :   Your Passenger must match also ... hay ... Deb had a really neat looking ridding outfit last time I saw her  .   
Your wife has good taste .   Cool
...............


8 days  and I don't have my chores done up yet !!!  Undecided

Well.....it doesn't appear the Slime Bridge is going to be very slippery this year.

It appears we have 3 weeks forecast without the only chance of rain on Sunday, April 4....and that is only a 30% chance of rain.  Can this part of Texas really be that dry?

Most of Texas is in a drought state of some severity.  Most of where we will be is in D1 or D2. https://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/CurrentMap/StateDroughtMonitor.aspx?TX
As such, water crossings will normally not be covered, at all.  I have not looked at Slime Bridge recently, but it may be mostly dry.  I will try to get there Saturday for an evaluation.
It is part of a nice road to Wimberley, but there are easy ways around it.
All of the crossings I normally go over are dry now.. or so short as to make no difference.

I could use some info as far as when you are planning to arrive and route once you hit Texas.
Depending on this and that, I may "escort" you in..  Might hit side roads in the process depending on route and how tired you are!  
Yeah.. lots of maybe and might.. but, I need info to see if possible.
And, yes, I understand that travel plans often change en route.
Post here or PM me.

If someone has a Life360 circle already setup with some of the participants, please send out invites to me (and the rest).  If not, I will setup a circle on my account using cell phone numbers provided to me.

Youzguyz:

You might as well set up the Life360 if you are familiar with how to do it, as you are the only one with all the phone numbers.

You likely don't want to escort in Deb and I - or Marcia and Mike, as we will be in our cages hauling the motorcycles in.  

Deb and I will be leaving KY on Friday morning - and with luck we will make it to Little Rock by the evening......unless Deb decides she wants to stop at Memphis and be touristy.

Our first night at our Kerrville lodging is Sunday night - so we will need to stay someplace else on Saturday night.  I expect we will be someplace in Texas on Saturday night.......I just don't know where.

We have family in Waxahachie, and maybe we will spend a few hours visiting them (Or maybe they will invite us to spend Saturday night with them!).

I just need to change the oil on the S40 and hopefully I can route the wiring for a usb port without  having to take off the tank. I wanted to change the clutch push rod but just have not had the time. Though the ride to the Hill Country would be easier on the Honda, I think the S40 is better suited for those roads. I have not yet decided what route I am taking or how early I am leaving on Sunday morning, but I'll let you know Neal.

Texts for Life360 have been sent to Dave, MM and Springman.  I don't have a cell# for Lancer yet.

MM - Do we need to bring bed linens or are they provided? Remember they do not provide them for the small cabin we have gotten in the past.

I've been away from my computer all day but can catch up now.

Tuesday I'll call Kerrville and arrange for anyone in the group to pick the keys up , and find out about linen.   I suspect it will be bring your own due to Covid ?

I'm still working on catching my chores up from our son's 3 week visit that ended last Friday.    But I got one of the big ones nocked out today.  Wink
....................

We plan to leave early Saturday morning and drive down the Natchez trace to Natchez Mississippi the first day , then on to Kerrville on Sunday ... so ... it may be about dark before we get there ?   Huh
...............................

5 days  and counting !  Smiley
