Re: 2008 TAR Ride Report

While I was not fortunate enough to attend the Texas Adventure Ride, I have been an avid reader of stories by "Richard" documenting the adventures of he and "Uncle" as they road the Texas hill country. These stories provided sufficiently detailed road names and numbers from which I could piece together a route of my own, which happened to cross over several of the TAR routes.

I became a registered member this forum today so that I might be able to provide some video and still pictures of Hackberry Road, via this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRq7_bgOZak
I hope I've insert the link properly.

I look forward to attending next years' TAR, and I wish to thank everyone who have entered their ride reports here. Your stories, pictures and video are very entertaining.

Re: 2008 TAR Ride Report

Snuggs,

Welcome!

That's a nice video of Hackberry Road. The water levels were higher than I've ever seen them. All that rain we had last summer must still have been hanging around when you filmed that.

If you can't wait for TAR 2009, you could always come to MexTrek in October...

2008 TAR Crutches Report

Long overdue, I know. But I didn't really participate much except for when I had to hobble 300 feet to the bathroom in the dark, in the middle of the night, on crutches, over gravel and in the rain. And back.
That was the extent of my Adventure 'Ride'.

At least I was there, dang it.

I spent most of my time looking at this



from here.



Except for a few times I hobbled out to mingle with the masses.



Otherwise I read a lot.
And drove myself on a fort run:
Fort McKavett slideshow and posts (scroll down to the four posts on McKavett)
Presidio San Saba slideshow and post

Ran into one of the TAR crew with similar mind. (I promised you would appear somewhere, Jerry )



Had fun with all of you at the Banquet.


"Come get some!. Dish it up right here!"


Roger encourages the spoon to continue in its course while Curtis' head starts to shake from the aluminum-covered rocks.


[The Good, Bad and Ugly music in the background....]
"You must be new to these here parts. Wanna duel with cameras, stranger?"


"So, can I squeeze these things with my fingers, or do I have to use these funny metal chopsticks?"


I bet y'all didn't know Teeds was a Marlboro man with a periscope.


A man with the jitters, a very patient woman dishing out food to hungry bikers, and my hero that can build a dirt bike and ride it all over Central America without a test drive. (I was glad to meet you, Ceebee)

I have to say JR, aka TurkeySlayer, is a kick and a fun comrade at any campfire. He had me in stitches, laughing more than I have in months. And he seemed to like my Black Forest Cobbler.


My own personal treat was this magical section of road on the way out. It is now a waypoint on my GPS and I will return.


That's it.

Ciao! Ci vediamo dopo!

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Re: 2008 TAR Ride Report

In Menard, Scott and Chris gassed up and we charted a course eastward towards Mason for lunch!

But first ...

Menard County Courthouse ... check



and a nice little church across the street



In Mason, after an uneventful trek down 29, we stopped for lunch



That is the Mason County Courthouse in the background.

Oops ... lunch was good ... real good ... we ate across from the square before stopping at the winery.



Then it was off for some exploring ...

We kept finding cool houses and a church ...









The parsonage ... wow ...




After a couple of turns and loops around somme fantastic dirt we popped out in the southeastern corner of Junction and made the trek across the shrouded river bridge back into downtown and the Sun Valley Motel.

Before dinner we shared a tale or three ...





Then it was off to the party ...

The tale of the tape for day two was a mile or so over 200, so we managed 500+ for the weekend. Not bad for having no plan in mind. It was a nice way to celebrate a birthday.

Sticks making her entrance
