    Big Bend late this fall or early winter

    Is anyone interested in a Big Bend trip late this fall, November or early December, or even early January?  I asked a Gold Wing/R1200RT rider friend if he was interested and he replied he was.  He's from Iowa, living here now and sold his K1600GTL and bought the Gold Wing in Russellville Arkansas at the same time we were at Mount Magazine for the get together.  He usually maps out trips around the hill country on little known roads and I follow him and the guy can really ride, even the Wing.  We could make it an any and all trip, not just Trophies and might be fun.  I know several guys on other makes that might like to go while the temps here are cooler, or even cold, since there's a difference between South Texas Cold and "YIKES" North Wisconsin Cold!!! :745:  October is OUT!  Cruisin' the Eastern Caribbean to refresh after the move!  Now we can afford to do that!

    Itís too early to tell whether I will be able to get the Trophy down South again this year, but if I can, I will definitely be interested in meeting up in South Texas.

    It will be a good opportunity to break out the mesh riding gear again!   :150:

    Ok we need to get a date for this.
    Letís look at the last part of January and first part of February.
    I donít want to have my Trophy in for itís 40K mile check up.

    Camping? Basin hotel? Terlingua hotel?
    Ride from Terlingua to Persidio and back through Marfa and then Alpine?

    Camping in the park would be best at Rio Grand Village that time of year.

    My Trophy is now staged in Arizona, and ready for another assault on Big Bend.
    I am open to whatever dates you folks choose, the only potential impediment to my attendance will be snow in the mountains between AZ and TX. No planning for that!
