I agree. We'll miss you being there...
Tell your Mom, the COGdom's thinking positive about her quick recovery..

Ride safe, Ted

She and my dad are as bummed about me missing the rally as I am. They will appreciate your good wishes.
Don't worry, that woman makes me look like a puny little wuss, she'll do fine.

 Looking forward to some COGdom "Sisters" action.  Departure end of next week. The count down has begun. Tick, tick...

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

My counterpart at work has been looking at me for three weeks and saying,  "You need a vacation. Go for a ride." So I am. See y'all there.

Just starting to pack my bags. I'm guessing I can leave the parka and turtleneck shirts home this trip?  ;)

So what is the weather going to be like next week? Besides hot, I mean. Rain in the forecast?

Jorge and I are leaving Friday.  We'll be trailering our bikes behind our "Beast" aka motorhome.  Our neighbors are going to be Ron and Katie Simmons.  We're looking forward to the week and being with everyone.  I'm looking forward to riding the Texas roads.

hey guys, i'm very interested about this ride challenge - can i have more informations?
 :whoo: :whoo: :whoo:

I don't want to spill all the beans, what fun would that be?   ;D

Challengers will have to actually do a little thinking on this challenge instead of just following written directions.  You will have to plan your route and decide how may points (locations) you will want to try to get.  For every correctly answered question you will be able to draw one additional card for your poker hand.  Here is one of the kickers, you will have to discard a card before you draw a card.

There are 7 points (locations) so you can draw up to a maximum of 7 additional cards, assuming you answer the questions correctly. 

The Challenge will be held on Thursday mornings, but you can get the questions starting at 6 pm on Wednesday evening.  That way you can take some time to plan your route.

I'm going to try this year.  I don't know how successful I will be but I'll do my best.

This one really hurts.  I was SO looking forward to the rally, too. My mom's back has been waiting for surgery for a year now, and it will finally happen--over the rally time. She and my dad are going to need me a whole lot, I just can't leave them for even a week.  Y'all she is almost in a wheel chair, she NEEDS this surgery right away. :truce:

But you can bet your sweet behinds I'm gonna be at Fall rally! Woohoo RWTW!!!

I hope your mom heals well from her surgery.  I'm so going to miss you!!!!!!!!  But you are doing the right thing.  I'll see you at RWTW!

Good news on the weather for next weeks rally.  Temps will be moderating (highs in the low 90's) and this is about as good as it gets for South Texas in June.  Would still get out and ride early, but at least it will not be near 100 like the last couple of weeks.

Yea, the mid level ridge will migrate back up toward NTX which will help to lower temps some.
To the east the sea breeze from the Gulf will help to fire up a few showers along the US 77 corridor, well east of the Edwards Plateau.

Added a few destination oriented "Dash" routes to the Google Drive.

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1MySK4zUm17IG60Xm2OPkPRtU2CWvObPz

The dash route for the Alamo (river walk too) is sort of convoluted once you get downtown, that was just my suggestion of a route to find parking.
It probably won't be that difficult on weekdays, but I'm not from there, so just in case I added it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The river walk had quite a few trees when I last walked it so there should be enough shade there if you aren't walking around in riding gear. If you plan on doing any other long walks in the heat, I would like to suggest a cheap wally world travel umbrella. IMO it is a remarkable difference between standing in the Texas sun and standing in the shade of an umbrella. I've used one hiking in the desert areas of Big Bend, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico. I know some prefer hats, but I find them stifling. An umbrella will let any breeze available cool your head. It takes a bit of getting used to constantly pointing it at the sun as you walk around but it quickly becomes second nature. They are also handy when stuck on the side of the road making repairs in a shade-less area. Ever have to stop on the highway for....you know irrigating the weeds?....and no car door to hide behind? Takes some coordination (you can practice at home  :)) ), but the umbrella will work for that as well.
Just a thought for you to consider, it's not for everyone.
------------------------------------------------------------
Inside Longhorn Cavern is approx. 68 degrees, with or without an umbrella. :)

Got back from the Motoamerica Superbike doubleheader at Road America on Monday, just in time to get clothes washed and do lots of yard maintenance. I'll be repacking today and leaving Minneapolis for the Rally Friday AM. Meeting fellow COGers in KC for a night of BBQ and beverages. We will be at Rally Central Sunday afternoon.

I'm kind of liking this retirement gig. The pay sucks, but I like having the time to get things done on my schedule. Might even wash the Wisconsin bug splatter off the bike today.

Back to Rally route planning. See everyone soon.

Looking forward to meeting you on Sunday, we'll have chilled water for you on your arrival.
