Here we go folks. Plan Now. I won't be OtP for this one. Sincerely hope to be escorting the Euro OtP traveler this time around. Planning on riding out. Who's in? 2 day ride out. Let's mob!

2 days?  You're nuts... :-\

I gotta keep it to 400 miles or so to keep my back from killing me.  Then again, I have lots of vacation time, so I can take it slow.

I was thinking:
- Day 1:  Show Low
- Day 2:  Silver City (down Devil's Highway)
- Day 3:  somewhere in TX
- Day 4:  Kerrville

Its that 3rd day I'm not sure of.   North or south of I-10?

Hell yeah, I picked my route specifically to include it.  Couldn't see passing it by, seeing as how it's 1200+ miles even if you just take I-10.  But then, I'm thinking of at least a 2 week trip.  4 days there, 1 day rest, rally 5 days, rest a day, 4 days back is what, 15 days?  Fearless Leader may have used all his vacation time for a while with the OtP fun... ;D  I actually will have to take 3-1/2 weeks next year or lose it.

Ah, Craig, thanks.  I enjoyed the hospitality of the SC folks last year at the Big Bend rally and I know you all will put on a great rally!!!

Given the lack of good Texas BBQ here in the Vegas area, I'm probably going to just turn this trip/rally into a series of RTE's for BBQ.  RTBBQ!

Its that 3rd day I'm not sure of.   North or south of I-10?

Here's an alternate, more northerly route:

- Day 3:  Carlsbad, NM (via Hillsboro, Hatch, Las Cruces, Cloudcroft, Pinon, Artesia)
- Day 4:  Kerrville (via Andrews, Big Spring, San Angelo, Fredericksburg)

I was considering staying in Fredericksburg an extra day and riding out of there, then sliding down to Kerrville for the first rally day.  Partly depends on the expense of staying at rally central on days when the group rate does not apply.

Aww, don't worry Craig.
I'm just picking on the Old man on a Connie b'cause it's fun.
He and I are fellow Travelers.

Old Guy,, I hava a thought.
If your escorting the "OtP" Traveler,,, longer ride is better.
Mebbe swing by Colorado..
  (In Texas miles) it's really close to Kerrville.

The Southwest's 9 Day Tour of the Southwest, leading to the Three Sisters Rally.

But you gotta make it 10 days and squeeze in at least 1 AZ day somehow, so it's a complete SW Region tour (sorry HI).

Rode that part of 66 last year. Amazing how narrow the road was!

I don't know where I'll be but fast camping from the west coast is a likelihood.

So right now waiting on decisions from the OtP community on arrangements and I know this takes time. Would very much like to show the Euro Traveler some SW hospitality. We got this!

I keep staring at the Butler Maps and end up retracing my route to Big Bend in 2016, or something like it:

Leave 6/3:
Day 1: Pahrump - Flagstaff via Peach Springs
Day 2: Flagstaff - Alpine(AZ)
Day 3: Alpine - Las Cruces via Devil's Highway, Silver City (side trip up Rt.15 and down Rt.35), Hillsboro, and Hatch
Day 4: Las Cruces - Carlsbad(NM) via Alamogordo, Cloudcroft, Rt. 130 to Rt. 24 through Pinon, Dunken, Artesia and maybe down through Queen to the end of the pavement.
Day 5: Carlsbad - Del Rio (TX) via Davis Mountains
Day 6: Wander all over the hill country to Kerrville.
Arrive 6/8.

Still petitioning the OtP committee pretty hard so all route suggestions are welcome. Please send them in!  :beerchug:
