I'll damage the margarita reserves but will probably end up with bourbon or scotch.

So what you're saying is that George wussed out because of a little chance of rain on Sunday, huh?

Didn't say that.  He's got a valid reason this time.  Doesn't mean he's gonna escape a little ridicule

Steve Macha and I are planning to arrive in Hunt by 9:00 AM Friday morning so we can ride with other folks. Please keep us in mind for your Friday riding plans. We'll be riding from San Antonio on 16 that morning.

Will do but you know me.  Going to find an individual that ether doesn't know me or has no standards and follow them.  Don't know who, when or where.

Looks like we are changing plans and arriving tomorrow, Thursday.  We were just going to come in Friday but this should up our chances of at least one dry ride day.  I am still hoping the mess is confined to over night Saturday and good homeward trip for everyone Sunday.

Pamela and I have symphony Thursday night so we are coming Friday. It's St. Matthew's Passion by JSB or I would donate the tickets, hate to miss the great choral music and one of Bach's greatest compositions.

Not the same!!!!   Obviously you have never been to the Morton Meyerson Symphony Hall......nothing recorded compares.

Originally we had tickets on Friday and moved them to Thursday so we could at least come to Hunt. Last year it was Stars playoffs....we did not have to worry about that this year.

I love Bach!

If I was the bellows boy and saw Bach coming in to practice the organ, I would hide.

Speaking of practicing the organ, he had twenty children! ;D

Desert island music, Bach and Bill Evans for me.

The river crossings weren't bad. Only one had water about six inches deep, so not bad. I hit it at about 35 MPH because I didn't see it soon enough, but it wasn't bad.

I'm home. I didn't stop for breakfast or lunch, just gas stops. It didn't rain on me at all.

I just talked to Ted. He and Judy are just over an hour from home.

I got home about 4:00 after stopping for lunch in Hamilton. When
Bigfoot and I left Kerrville we passed a few bikes then because there was traffic I passed 2 riders got back into the line.
I just a minute Bigfoot got antsy an roared out an passed about 15 bikes a took off. I stay content in the line. I thought I
I had joined our Goldwing bunch with a couple of Harleys. When we got to Fredericksburg  and stopped a rider asked me where I was going and I said Dallas he said we are also and you can ride with us. Then I realized I had broke into a Harley group and not our Goldwing
bunch. They went straight at the light and I turned right.

Butch, I'm glad to hear you made it home OK. The Goldwing group stopped at Mickey D's in Fredericksburg for breakfast. I saw them briefly before heading north to Llano on 16.

I thought you looked comfortable riding with the Harley riders. You mean you weren't? Ha ha.
