Re: What is Texas Adventure?

BigD,

I really want to run the Coahuila 300 but gave up on it for now for 2 reasons.

First, I couldn't come up with a workable, cost effective plan to provide medical attention and a medevac in the event someone were to be injured way out in the middle of the desert. I couldn't, in good conscious, run the event without having a reasonable medevac plan.

Second, for it to really be an event that would be the best mix of challenging and fun I thought it needed more dirt and less highway. I saw 2 dirt roads on the map that were perfectly placed to eliminate most of the highway miles but when I went and reconned them last Nov I discovered both had locked gates on them.

If I can ever figure out how to overcome the first issue, I will likely go ahead and run the event. If we ever get access to those 2 dirt roads, then we will have a Baja style event without having to travel all the way to the west coast.
