Well, it's the worst time of year (again) for me to get the time off, but, I'll try for the
time this December.  Sooo it'll be 21 hrs of sweatin' my b*lls of to get there, another
five days of  sweatin' on the bike all day, then that 21 hour hot ride home...

Why can't we have the Texas National Rally in April???  :??:  Iffin' I get the time off,
I'm thinkin' I'm hotel'n it... as much as I love campin'...  :32:

Its kinda funny hearing "southern folks" whining, when most of them never look at a weather map above the norther border of their state, in March, and April...
 :rotflmao:
Jeebus  the "northern" contingent, this year, had snow and ice storms fully into April, and the PNW, and upper states..... well them poor suckas had it into May...
 :truce: :truce:
Its all good.. glad to see the venue, and with, deal with the heat....  oh, and reserve a space to camp at next years Brrrrrrrr ride... and we can all laugh at the whiney comments....  :)).

Craig, great spot man... look forward to it.

I don't whine - I fly or ride away every summer  :great:

I'm THAT addicted to RIDING  :motonoises:

Moved from Houston at 18 and Austin at 19. Camp there every April with my sisters for spring break. The tea aisle at the grocery store has lots of choices - different cups'o ☕️

Craig, great spot man... look forward to it.

I lived in NY for 44 years MOB.  Ski'd for 15 of them, driving through blizzards to get to Vermont and New Hampshire to
catch some 'powder'.  Carried mail on a walking route for 7 years, and 2 or 3 blizzards.  BTDT.  I lived for cold.
Problem is, I couldn't afford stuff like....eating... in NY.  Moved south, kept my pay, pay the price in the summer.
BUT!  I can afford to live comfortably down here.  (A/C ftw!)

Up North, you can always put on another layer if your cold... but down 'heeya' there's only so much
you can take off before yer hauled to the 'hoos-cow'.  Hot sucks.  Humid sucks.  Hot AND humid... well
it's easy to figger out.  I'll never get used to the heat, so I'll b*tch about it...  makes me feel cool and fuzzy.   ;D

Having said all that, I've only gone NORTH for every COG event I've attended, save "Run with the Bullfrogs".

Not that I need to explain myself, but, y'all should know the whole story...    :beerchug:

Every year I ride coast to coast at least once.

This year, I'm late getting to it, but I'm going in the end of July. Shrieking hot it will be, for sure. I'll deal with it, drink a gallon of water a day, and at least Monterey and Colville WA will be cooler than the states I cross to get there.

But, I'm not sure I want to cook slowly for a week in Texas, especially if the humidity is high. Thats why I leave winter camp in Florida and head north and northwest in the spring, to get out of Florida humidity and heat. But it would be worth going for sure.

Lived in the north for a very long time. Saw snows that drifted into 6 and even 8 foot high berms. Covered small cars. My F-150 actually got semi-buried a few times. Left that crap and never going back, except for events in the summer.

The real ticket to riding in the summer in Texas (or in the NE right now for all that's worth) is to get up in the morning and ride at first light when it's still upper 60's.  And then be back or where you can have lunch not too far from the venue by early afternoon, and then sit around the pool drinking margarita's the rest of the day.  It works for me.   :nananana:   
But I have to ride about four hours north to get there.

We used to backpack in New Mexico in the mountains in July. The rule was "Up  high by 10, down low by 2."  We'd get up @ 5, hit the trail at 5:30, up the mountain(s) down to the next camp by 1:30.

Pitch a tent and take a siesta during the 3-4:30 thunderstorm.
