Anybody in TX looking to ride Thanksgiving Weekend?

Just checking to see if anyone is planning a ride in central Texas Thanksgiving weekend. We will be in Austin TG day and if there are some who want to ride out west in the hills Friday and Saturday, my wife and I may be interested in joining.

wasn't planning one, but I'll talk to my social director to see if there is open time. You might want to post this in the South Central forum to ensure more folks see it.

Re: Anybody in TX looking to ride Thanksgiving Weekend?

Just want to verify that I can't 100% for sure say we are going, but I can say we are 100% interested in joining a ride or riding with any others.

Our thought is since we'd be in Austin, we'd head out Friday morning towards the Three Sisters area. It might be difficult, but I suspect on the west side of the sisters we could find a hotel or motel for Friday night. And then we ride some in the morning after breakfast, moving back towards the east, to get back to Katy Saturday night.

Looking good for the ride.

Assuming the weather is good (after the hail and rain in the Colorado Rockies this past July, just not going if the weather's bad), we'll plan to leave Austin on Friday morning around 8 or 9, ride the day away and then ride some in the area on Saturday morning, heading back to Houston area on Saturday afternoon.

I've sent an email to the Historic Rocksprings Hotel (Texas Hill County Historic Hotel | Historic Rocksprings Hotel) to see what a room cost there for Friday night. Don't know that's where we'll be staying, just depends on cost.

Received email back from the hotel. They only have one King room left (checking on others).

If you have any interest in this let me know as soon as possible. If no one is interested, my wife and i will just book the room. But because of the limited rooms in Rocksprings, I'd hate to get four or five couples spread out across the Hill Country because we booked this room and no others were available.

Let me know.

Thanks,
Larry

We have our reservations. You make reservations without giving a cc, very "old fashion" as Debra, the owner, says. You can cancel by Nov. 1.

Still looking for other riders, if anybody is interested. However, we're going even if by ourselves.
