just saw the final digital revision and man it's gonna be an amazing map.
i think we've found every road in the region worth riding. we poured an incredible amount of time into this one. we're gonna submit it for possible excellence in cartography awards as we are pleased beyond measure how it came out. Allen Cartography did an amazing job! http://www.allancartography.com/
this map is gonna be an incredible resource for anyone living in or vacationing in the THC!

I think the map might have a few more roads now. Amazingly....The best pavement of the day as far as Scot was concerned seemed to be the area just below South Ft Hood near Oakalla & Maxdale. I've been riding those roads for years now & DEFINATELY agree on that point. Still....ALL OF EM WERE GOOD REALLY.

Just rolled in to La Casa at 9PM after stopping at Schoepf's on the way back in. Lunch in Burnet at Giovanni's was pretty tasty too...GO THERE. One in Lampasas & another town too.

BIG THANX to Scott for invitin me along to scout out the paved goodies.....& for Breakfast/Lunch coverage...


4-11 ...NEW UPDATE .....Well not yet.....Hopefully the map'll be comin out within a few.....

Got anything new to tell us Bill ? ....

Impressive

Olaf (the guy from eastern Canada who is touring the hill country with me right now) was very impressed with the pre-production half size map that Scott had printed up for us to use. I'm gonna send it home with him as a souvenior of the hill country trip. BIG THANX Scott...& Bill..& Justin...& Court

BUTLER MAPS....Hill Country Map

Word is.......The Butler Texas Hill Country Map is in the printing stage as of recent. It should be released within the next week or so.

You should probably place your order !



The process has taken a bit longer on this one,cuz of all the extra little gravel & paved gems they added.

Looks like most of our CenTex folks are going to be at the show much earlier Sat.
I thought you mentioned 2 times for Sat & 1 for Sun too.

that was the original plan, but the IMS show re-scheduled him.
talks are at an area called the learning curve.

Headed there tomorrow with one of your great Maps in hand. Not that I need it as I have been riding those roads over 25 years but your map is a great addition to my knowledge of this beloved area of Texas. To those not so familiar with this part of Texas though, it will be quite handy to them. Nice work Butler Maps.
