HCBMWR Big Bend Weekend

The Hill Country BMW Riders will be going out to Big Bend again this March 26th to 30th. Some of us will go out on the 27th. The main Lodge (Stone Village tourist Camp) is sold out but there are lots of other places close by.

Here are the details
TRIP TO el despoblado…“THE PLACE WITHOUT PEOPLE”
Lots of information here folks. Not to confuse but because this is a remarkable destination with lots to see and do going and coming.

The dates of the trip this year are Wednesday, Mar 26 through Sunday, Mar 30. Your trip may be shorter or longer and that is great.

Getting There

A group will go from the Del Norte Restaurant in Kerrville after a sit down breakfast that starts at 9:00 on Wednesday the 26th.

Another group will do the same thing on Thursday, so pick your day and join in.

Sammie Shreeve and Tanya Emmons will each be driving cars out on Thursday, so if anyone wants to four-wheel it.

On Wednesday, we will head west on 27 to 39 to Hunt where we pick up 1340 which we follow to 41 west to 377 south. At Rocksprings continue on 377 to 674 south. We will follow 674 to Brackettville where we pick up 90 west for a quick 33 mile leg into Del Rio where we will fill our gas tanks and eat at R&R BBQ at 401 Sky Line St just west of town on the north side of 90.

From there we will pause at the Pecos river overlook and the Eagles Nest bridge and on to Marathon where we stop for a short refreshment break at the famous White Buffalo bar before heading out the final hour to Fort Davis.

Re: HCBMWR Big Bend Weekend

So far we have 25 people signed up to go to Big Bend. There are still rooms in Ft Davis plus Alpine & Marfa. We normally have 30 to 40 show up so come join the fun. Weather should be great. 30's & 40's in the morning in Ft Davis warming to 70's & low 80's by afternoon. In the Park it can get into the 90's or higher in the afternoon.
