My bike ain't gonna need wurkin' on.  Ted ain't got a snowball's chance of ridin' it...  :32:  or even lookin' at it close.   :96: 
And iffin' "I" break it, it won't be repairable in the parkin' lot.


:38:  Ted, you just keep yer distance and keep yer evil eye to yerself.
So, your bike ain't gonna need workin' on, just like yer sayin' that shafties can't wheelie. Ha! I've proved you wrong on that one many times, Chuck.

Sure its fixable in the parking lot. Just go to the store and get a bottle of that liquid metal stuff  and add to the oil, it will fill in
those burnt holes in the pistons nicely.

What about us poor folks that prefer to sleep outdoors?  Any campsites near the resort?  The closest thing we can is find Ingram Lake RV Park or By the River RV Park and Campground.  Both are over 10 miles away.  The Kerrville -Shcreiner Park is even further, but very nice.

We have looked for a combined venue, but in Kerrville that's tough. The River Inn Resort has been the default for many years.

This would be a good discussion to have at the ride. By the River RV is probably the best choice for camping nearby.

A combined venue with camping and rooms would be best, but we had nearly 50 attendees last year with almost all staying at the River Inn Resort.

A lot of folks share rooms so that is another way to reduce the costs.

Mo Ranch Presbyterian Camp and Conference Center has cabin and tent camping sites for cheap available... at least they USED to be cheap.  That is on 1340 and still a fair ways from the Resort.  One could call and ask folks at the Damn Store or the Hunt Rock Cafe and ask where the nearest tent or RV spaces would be.  I had friends with a place three doors down from the resort, but sadly they have both died the past year. Lovely folks.

Mo Ranch can be checked out at www.moranch.com

OK.  Campsites are $32/night and cabins are $72 and can hold up to 8 folks.

Looks like weather will be an improvement over the last few years!!!!!!

Mid week there's a progressive upper low that kicks out quickly. May be some pop up showers on Saturday, but not widespread coverage.

Definitely NO LINGERING CUTOFF SURFACE LOW like we have seen in the last two years!!!!

Get OUT AND GET ON DOWN to Hunt, TX!

As the name of the rally implies, the wildflowers are popping right now.  Took a ride thru the hill country last Sunday and everything is green and beautiful thanks to the late winter rains. I have a nice ride set up for Friday for anyone who wants to join in.

For some reason I felt I heard that a Friday meal was in the works also.  Am I dreaming?  I do that sometimes.  I just don't want to do something else and then find out there was something planned.

Marty said he has "meals" planned for Friday and Saturday.

If food is being provided Friday that word needs to get out there. 

We usually either head back into town to get dinner or fixings for dinner.  If everyone does that and then food is provided there will be to much.

Ted ya know no one gonna touch your poppers without gloves.  Eeeeww Oooohhhhh  oucheeeee

There's always been something to eat made available on Friday, so please don't act like everyone starves! ;D

Marty does not post much on this forum, so don't shoot the messenger. :violent-smiley-007:

He mentioned chili and fixings on Friday, then the burgers and such on Saturday. It was all VERY TASTY last year and NO ONE WENT HOME HUNGRY!

Anyway,  COG SWAG BAGS may show up for some of those attending.

Ted will end up stranded on TX 39 or TX 187 on the TURBO!!!!!!!! :))

Everyone turn off your phones when Ted leaves on the TURBO for his annual jaunt to nowhere. :nananana:

If it's any consolation, I watched the Turbo blow a stitch on US 67 just north of the Presidio Airport with our esteemed ED at the controls. All of us were feeling a little frisky after the River Road and a big Meskin Lunch at El Patio. All of a sudden a C14 passes me at about 130 with Rev right behind on the Turbo which turned into a rolling two wheeled crop duster with choking blue smoke trailing and a BAD ENGINE SOUND from the ninth circle of Dante's Inferno. It sounded possessed! :character0029:

Pamela and slowed down in the choking blue fog and circled back to check on Chuck. Arrangement were made to bring the trailer down and get him back to the Maverick.

Chuck got back about fours hour later and I handed him a cold one. He had ridden the Turbo to Alpine so..........it was El Strando or find a way to get it back. Good COGGERS made it so!

I was not running the GoPRO when it happened, so we can't show it in a loop on Friday Night during all the bench racing.  :D

Can you substitute the liquor and make a Margarita with Moonshine in it?
I know it works for gasoline in the bikes.
Not sure about Margarita's as I'm not sure it would freeze??

Assuming we can,,,, after a few, we would all know what it's like to ride the Turbo!!
  <even if the bike's not there>

Ride safe, Ted

I'll bring the Margarita Machine, but since I still ain't got a job (but have pretty much run out of savings... and the couch is clean,,, and undr the seat in the cars is all clean...) I'll be staying with Hub in Kerrpatch.  I'll be glad to make the Ritas, but I'll need help on supplies for them.  I hope to bring the starter round with me anyway.   ::)

The turbo is under reconstruction now. Long row to hoe still and spent today working on job paperwork (maybe?!?!?!)  so not far enough along to make me happy, but gaining.  Ruined an oil control ring trying to get the cylinders on. &*^*&%!!!!  But I wound up slapping four hose clamps on the function as ring compressors after robbing the oil ring off a dead soldier.  It will be re-deployed.

I had a previous commitment so cannot make the rally this week; however, I was there on Wed-Saturday.  The bluebonnets especially and on  Saturday the Indian Paintbrush also looked really good on 16 north and south of Llano.  Not much to speak of on 2323. 

Road Conditions if your are coming from DFW:  Tar and gravel was being placed on 67 beginning just west of Glen Rose - even though I turned south on 203 I got stuck in slow one-way traffic.  I was advised by others that the 220 connect to Hico has really bad grooves in it.  You can avoid all by taking 144 south to Walnut Springs.   Also south of Lometa, I believe where 580 turns into 581 or possibly where 580 turns into 501, the road is being totally repaved.  They have dug up all the asphalt.  You will experience a combination of hard soil with a little gravel and a shorter section of total gravel.  If its wet when you travel I would avoid for sure and just take 2005 from Hamilton to Goldtwaite and south on 16.     

Have fun and ride safe

Rev
Find me and we will go get the fixings for your Ritas together.

Not sure who to chase without a Snyder in the mix.

Fairly sure I'll survive the weekend since I found a good supply of Ted repellent.

Steve
May chase you if your willing.  You were a hard target in Tennessee.

Mr Cowles,
Looking forward to seeing you.  No repellent required.

Rev it seems like the rooms there have a couch in addition to a bed. If you can put up with a couch you are welcome to share with me.
Also I can help with the fixings.
