I'll be heading out sometime before noon. I'll probably take 290 and avoid the 85 mph+ I-10. It will be a leisurely 240 miles or so. See ya'll in the evening.

We spent Friday night just short of reaching Little Rock. áWe ran through a bit of rain - but while driving on Saturday we discovered that maybe it was good we didn't continue driving that night. áWhen we got into Texas we saw lots of downed trees, damaged billboards, tall grasses that had been smashed down by the wind/rain and a lot of leaf debris on the edges of the pavement. áEvidently there were some really strong winds and rain on Friday night.

We spent Saturday night with Deb's stepsister Lindy and her husband Rick last night in Waxahachee. áWe got a tour of the town and a wonderful steak dinner!

We have about a 5 hour drive to reach Kerrville today. áI would like to leave Waxahachee before noon - but we have had so much fun visiting Lindy and Rick I suspect it will be hard to get away!

MM: áIt sounds like your Life360 is a far more advanced version than I was able to download. áI can see where everyone is and how fast they are driving or if they are sitting still - maybe if I zoom in I can see the overnead and street views you are talking about. áSo far I have only been able to see Youzguyz and me on Life360.....and a note that says Springman has logged off. á

I just saw and advertisement for a site called "hipcamp" - it looks like a more rugged version of Airbnb.  I have not had time to check it all out and see if it would help this group.

I don't show where MM has joined the 2021 Hill Country "circle" yet.  MM, please check your phone for text messages.

Deb and I arrived at our temporary home around 5PM.  We got unpacked and unloaded the bike.......and are resting on the patio recovering from our 1,212 miles of driving.  The owner Tom used to road race motorcycles - he moved his truck over so I could park my motorcycle in the garage......my kind of host!

MM and Springman have checked in and they are in Fredericksburg and they got MM's bike unloaded..

Our hosts (Tom and Kim) said it was 43 degrees this morning!  Tomorrow morning is forecast for the low 60's when we start riding, and a high of 88.

Things are bigger in Texas.

On Sunday when we were driving west of Killeen, we stopped at Buc-ee's. áIt is a huge gas station/convenience store.......the inside was filled with T shirts, gadgets, novelties, packaged food, a wall of candy, an 80 foot long wall of coolers, a deli, a grill and a fudge counter.

There were two canopies with a total of 56 gas pumps!

MM left his cows at home with a big block of sweet feed to keep them occupied while he is away.

Here he is considering changing his herd to this Texas style of cattle with convenient handles to help him when he is loading them - however he will have to widen the fences in his chute and possibly make some modifications to his trailer.

On Tuesday we were guided by Youzguys on a ride out to Leakey and we proceeded to assault the Twisted Sisters. áThe traffic was amazingly light and the majority of drivers pull over and wave us past when they see 4 motorcycles behind them (except for one driver who was content to let us ride behind them while they drove slowly around each corner).

My employment as a City/County engineer has included lots of work on road drainage systems - and the "low water crossings" in Texas are amazing to me. áOn our daily rides we pass over hundreds of low areas that are designed to allow the low water flow to go under the road - and the high water flows to go over the road! áThis is completely different than the way the roads and streets are designed in Kentucky, where the storm water flows are supposed to stay off the pavement. áI will have to ask some of these local Texans if they just hunker down in their homes and avoid driving while the water is flowing over the roads.......each low water crossing has a pole with a scale showing how deep the water is at that point - so you can determine if you are brave enough to drive through.

I have posted a photo from a large water crossing on the Frio River that is á in the valley between the Twisted Sisters. áThis wash area is huge and appears like it would have a large amount of water during rain events. áThe land in this part of Texas is very rugged and rocky. á

Hey according to Facebook :  I'm only 87 ... but I hope to still be leading you around Suches when I'm 120  Smiley .

Maybe , we should start planning a Suches ride soon as the weather warms up a bit ?   Wink
........................

YouzGuyz is a wonderful tour guide ... Everybody who hasn't been to Texas in the spring for a visit is missing some great ridding and great scenery.   We went to some really interesting places too.   Today we had brisket that was better than I can make !   Tongue

Yesterday Youzguyz took us on a ride to see the wildflowers - most of which are pretty Texas weeds. áThe white flowers have little thorns all over the stems and they appear to be pretty invasive in some fields. áThe Bluebonnets are pretty...and there are some red flowers that look very much like the yellow Daisy that we have in KY.

Here is what the lineup looks like from the rear on the flower tour.
