Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

centextom,

As a point of introduction you should know that tricepilot (Bob in real life) is a chucklehead and known troublemaker here on TWT. We only let him hang around to see what crazy thing he is going to do or post next.

By the way, welcome to the asylum. No need to abandon all hope but it does help to know the inmates are running the place.

See you at the Beyond EPIC Extravaganza. It's gonna be epic.

Gilk,

You were supposed to finish with "now go get me a beer, noob".

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Hi all! I am fairly new to TWT. This ride looks like fun. I may try to make this. I have a 2008 KLR with Gripster tires on her. Will I need more of a 50/50 tire for this ride?

I am pretty much a novice off the pavement. Been riding some gravel roads and forest service gravel roads up in the Sam Houston National Forest. Sp I would probably be a slow poke on a ride such as this.

I am located in Houston. So if there is a group going up from here that Friday I may join in.

Hi, bsheet2.

The Gripster will be fine for the Beyond EPIC.

I just made my reservation, The Hills has one smoking room left only for Sept 5 but there are several hotels within a short distance on Main Street.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

Is there any possible camping near the hotel?

If I get my bike in order (really hot outside and only a parking lot to work in) I might be able to ride this one. Only I like to do things on the cheap and camping is right up my alley..

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

There are several campgrounds in and around Junction. One of them should have a spot for you.

Re: 2nd Annual Beyond EPIC Labor Day Weekend Extravaganza

More like 2.5 to 3 hours to Austin depending on stops.

Snot, I just found out I will not be able to do this ride. I was gettin pumped up to go on this too.

Richard I may have to purchase the GPS tracks and maps from you. This looks like an excellent adventure ride. I will not want to wait a whole year to try it.
