I waited as long as possible, but i'm out. No rain here in Austin, but they just put up a flash flood warning for areas south of Junction. That's the breaking point for me. Hope the weather is better for you guys tomorrow.

Re: TAR 2010, April 15 - 18, 2010

Arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning headed out after riders meeting. Rode North of I-10 . Within 15 minutes into the ride the RAIN HIT . North of I-10 had some heavily soaked and muddy roads. However, South of I-10 into Rocksprings was pure mud,muck,
many large ponds developed on the road. The ponds were flowing across the road and
the ones in low areas were in places easliy 2.5 ' deep. Some bedrock bottom. Some pure mud. Yes mud , at times mud 3" to 6" in depth and lasting for miles. All while under heavy to medium rain showers. The roads began to erode under heavy rains. Creating channels with boulders exposed. It would have been a challenge in a 4x4 (with good tires). Rocksprings was a relief for fuel and coffee. But the rain was still coming down
and continued all the way back to Junction. Back at K.O.A. Nice hot shower and dry clothes helped. Finally the rain stopped and a little sun came out. The river rose 2' in three hours. Forecast showed more rain for Saturday. So loaded up and returned home.
Great group that we fell in with . Everyone looked out for fellow riders . And traversed some incredible terrian that normally would have not been like that. All during the pouring rain.

Re: TAR 2010, April 15 - 18, 2010

I just got a room at the Hills! Will send my registration fee to you! The man at the desk in Junction says that he is the new owner (Dale), as the previous owner sold him the motel.
I told him I was going to be with the TAR and he seemed a bit puzzled when I mentioned it.
Oh, well.

I got the same reaction when I made my reservation. Also, no group discount. Will The Hills be TAR HQ in 2011?

Re: TAR 2010, April 15 - 18, 2010

Wonder if these guys know that the TAR was 6 months ago.

When is the TAR for 2011???

(Truthfully, when I called, I made reservations for the 2010 dates, then had to call back and correct them! )
