Will try to do a ride report tomorrow if I get a chance...

After Padre, I plan to head more-or-less to Big Bend. Everyone has said there's nothing to see and it's sketchy along the Rio Grande through Laredo etc. Is there a route from Padre up to the Big Bend area that's more entertaining than not???
Not a very entertaining route from Brownsville to Big Bend. If I were going I would head North enough to cut West and miss Laredo. Too hot and too many people/not enough roads!
I would go
N- 77
W -1017
W 59/44
S -385
Into Big Bend Park

Then up 118 to Study Butte
West on 170 to Terlingua
Then West to Presidio
Then 170 West to Ruidosa , camp and check out Chinati Hot Springs
If Gravel roads are no problem go North on Pinto Canyon Road to Marfa
Go to Ft Davis and check out the Observatory!

OK I'm done!
