Just got a room today and was told it was one of the last 2 so only one left.  Who will get it?

Glad you are coming and it looks like we are going to fill Rally Central this year!

Dinner at Judy's Bread and Breakfast is confirmed for 7PM Saturday night. You will need to have registered for the ride to get a dinner chit.

Dinner is catered and we have the facility all to ourselves. Judy's is downtown on Holland right across from the train station parking lot.

The Maverick has a room included hot breakfast, but Judy's is also a great place to start the day.

ONE ROOM LEFT AT THE MAVERICK, OTHER ROOMS IN ALPINE WILL SELL OUT SOON, BETTER GET A RESERVATION ASAP!

Wow, what a ride.
I'm pondering the ride. (and I only have to come from Houston)..

It's doubtful I'll get to come because of other things I have scheduled, but still a possibility.

Ride safe, Ted

Hope you can make it, Ted!

I'll be riding over from Lost Alaskan to check in. Guess I better add it to the Navigator.

The Maverick Inn has sold out.

Here is a list of alternate lodging possibiliities:

http://visitalpinetx.com/hotels-lodging/

This is the premium season for visitors, so many may be already booked up, if you are "on the fence" I recommend getting a reservation ASAP until you make up your mind.

It will be up to you to negotiate the best rate. The Value Inn, Holiday Inn Express, and Highland Inn are not too far from Rally Central.

Camping is available at the Lost Alaskan RV Park:

Ride free,

Craig

Lost Alaskan campsite reserved. Discount for being Disabled Veteran since I'm not a Good Sam member, but its a good discount.

Looking forward to this!

JR you might consider heading south west on 79 after you get into Texas and out 290 to I 10 west of Austin.  This keeps you away from the DFW metroplex and a bit nicer ride and views.  You will still need to try and miss Austin rush hours or just find a way around it like HWY 29 to 281.  This will take a bit longer but not much.

Sad part is the best riding in the sate will be just south of you off I 10 sw of Kerrville.  Spend time in the sisters, 335, 336, 337 between Hunt and Rock Springs if you can.

I have enjoyed my stay here before.  It is a bit more on route if you are heading out I 10.

PS:  Watch out for the Turkeys though.  Never seen so many in one place before.  They like to cross the road morning and evening in the park.

US 90 is another option out to Big Bend from the Hill Country, Pecos River Bridge and Langtry TX are a couple of cool stops on the way to Alpine.

You can stop off in Langtry and pay respects to the Judge!

Sorry to say, I will not be able to attend.

The front tire is going away, and its expensive. A bit less than half my travel budget.

Next year....

Well shoot............sorry to miss you there but glad we chatted at Jack's.

Maybe next year and you can notch off The River Road FM170 off the bucket list.

Ride free,

There is still an outside chance that I'll get to be there.
If so, I have arranged to share a room.

Pamela and I are leaving Mesquite about 7AM, we'll be going down I 20 to US 67 so we would be south of you.

I think we are meeting Greg and Kate in Alvarado.

Before I say YES, let me make sure that time is firm with Kate and Greg.
