Don't forget Big Bend State and National parks, the Guadalupes, and New Mexico.

I hear Arkysaw is pretty nice too.

I have enough close encounters on the 950. I'm sure my license wouldn't last a week.

Found out why my horn didn't work. Hard mud packed between horn contacts inside blinker housing....electrons didn't like it.

Also in tradition of pre big ride events, my Austrian submersible is tore the fuck apart.

That type of work is best performed within 24 hours of departure.

You're right it is a bit premature...I think I'm going to order some lights, so maybe I'll stat wiring those up the day before I leave.

So TXjames and I (and Larry till the unfortunate leak) were blowing up Hill, Johnson and Somervell Counties. I hit Bosque and a giant wave of paranoia just slobber-smacked me. Talk about a downer. Let my people go. We shall overcome. Grrrrrr.
