You'd go to Ikea and purchase many of those cheap Billy bookcases like I did. I too find the printed books easier to flip through and read, but I have some books that has video embedded in them, and that is tough to do with a print book. Also the print size thing is very nice when your eyes get weaker.

The reality is ebooks are a little high but you don't ship them or go get In the car to pick them up. Even going to the library cost something.

& the last couple are on CR223 where the road runs right next to the river with a rocky ledge to pull off on.

I LOVE THAT AREA....& THOSE ROADS!

I rode through that on my first go...??????? Guess I have to make another trip down Briggs road.... shouldn't that be CR 220 not CR 219?
Mr2mch nailed it, Mesquite Creek shows to be CR19 on my map through Kings Ranch off of 3170 and 190. We also traveled CR22 south of 2808 until it crossed into Burnet cty. and became 222-great road but too short. The map showed a deadend but I knew from years ago that it hooked over to 2857-so sad they paved that part. We also reconed 221 looking for the alleged offroad riding area to no avail. No trace.

If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

On another note, we were just in Austin for my wife's brothers funeral and one of the Police Escorts was riding a new GS. That was cool. Helped lighten a dark day. The Police completely closed off I-35 while we proceeded to the Texas State Cemetary. He was an Austin Big-Wig.

I've got an iPad and I like it. I'm trying to change over some subscriptions from print to electronic, but I am finding that magazine and newspaper publishers are very slow to accept change. The WSJ is one that is very frustrating to do business with.

Coming off FM 2657 it's CR 220 that gets you to Briggs Road. That's why I was wondering.
