Just found this thread and wanted to see if any Central Texas rides were going on.
I am in Brownwood, Tx which is almost the exact center of Texas so that will give me a good start on any rides in the area.
Just wanted to check in an say Hello.

Hey, man. It's me again. (I'm everywhere.) Sorry you missed Roll the Bones last weekend. We didn't kill anybody!! That's always a good thing. Something will be coming up soon enough. Ghost is laid up with a funky shoulder but his campouts will start in earnest after the New Year. Somebody is riding somewhere every weekend. I am heading East tomorrow, though.

Do you know the best dirt roads around your area? I'd like to go run some tasty dirt and see if I can use it for my Red to the Rio project. One leg is coming through Bosque County and I'm thinking Brownwood for the other.

Could that be why my bike looks whitish except for that new rear tire.

Mike, it sure was foggy going across your dam this morning. No lake or river visible to either side not a thing but road and white.

Dang, right. It was fog and mist when I was running FM1860 into Riesel. Got dry around Groesbeck and by Personville 10 miles later and about 10:00, the bluest blue sky. Freaky.

Huh. I stopped to see how much. And if I could pick the people I'd be hunting. My bad. Fella did look at me kinda funny.
