Hill Country Adventure - a guide to adventure riding the Texas hill country

Riders,

I've just completed work on a new guide called Hill Country Adventure, a guide to adventure riding the Texas hill country.

It is a 56-page guide to dual sport adventure riding in the Texas hill country. The guide includes:
  • 8 recommended day routes, ranging from 200 miles to 350 miles, with route descriptions, directions, overview map, and ride notes.
  • THC 500 - 2 day, 500 mile adventure tour of the hill country with route descriptions, directions, overview map, and ride notes.
  • THC 11100 - 5 day, 1100 mile adventure tour of the hill country with route descriptions, directions, overview map, and ride notes.
  • Top 10 dual sport roads in the hill country
  • Top 10 hill country paved roads
  • In-depth discussion of pertinent topics such as navigation, GPS, terrain, roads conditions, preparation, packing, weather, and group riding rules.
  • Routes in .gpx format for use with a GPS

In short, this guide contains all the relevant information needed to go adventure riding in the Texas hill country.

The cost of the guide is $20 via check or money order or $22 if paying via paypal. Get more information and an order form [http://texasadventure.net/cool-stuff/ride-guides/]here[/url]


Basically I took the TAR guide and rewrote it so that it is not event specific. If you have a TAR guide, then the significant differences between this guide and the TAR guide are:
1. Overview maps are now included for each route in the book. I finally figured out how to include overview maps in the book without violating copyrights.

2. I added 2 tours - a 2 day, 500 mile tour and a 5 day, 1100 mile tour - for those who would rather tour than do day rides out of Junction. If you have a long weekend and want to explore the hill country, then the 500 mile tour should be just about right. If you have about a week off and want to do some riding in the hill country, the 1100 mile tour would seem to be a good fit.

3. Reduced the number of day routes to eliminate overlap. I tried to make each of the 8 day routes as unique as possible, with different roads on each route.

Will you have them at Terlingua in a couple weeks? If so, I'll buy one there; otherwise, color me "in" for when they're ready.

I ordered two extra XXL shirts. Catch me early before they are gone.

Yes, cash works for me. (Except Connie thinks I should give it to her ).
