Yes, I know them. They are members of SABMWRA, our local association.
Part of the time while we're in the Hill Country we'll rent their cabin.
Nice couple.

Doesn’t have to be a large group ride…maybe 1 or 2 others to share the day with.
That's my view as well. My ideal group size is 2. Ha ha. But I'm fine with 3. The hard part is finding somebody with at least similar riding styles. Then you could meet with others at dinner. The only bad part is cops are usually aware of rallies, on top of the traffic slower riders createa, plus the extra risk of the inevitable number of folks riding above their heads in the twisties. Since I don't ride often, if I take a motorcycle trip, the main goal is to ride, not to meet a bunch of people, so a rally is not a smart decision for me. I like meeting with one or two individuals that I know are likely to ride more or less like me, and make our own 'rally' :).

At any rate, if I haven't made it to the HC by the time of the rally, I could consider arriving Sunday, and possibly meet some folks before they leave. I like going in March, because April is already the rainy season there, and February is typically too cold. But since I can just plan and take off within a few days, I start playing it by ear with weather forecasts in February. If you need to plan months in advance, it's definitely safer to do it in April, when temperatures are historically nice. The time I went also in April, it was already too hot for my liking, plus it rained like crazy the 2nd day forward, so it was basically a 1-day rally. It wasn't worth riding 1,100 miles round trip to get there. This time I'd trailer the bike, so that'd make it less painful. Ha ha.

It's a nice, and easy hike; I liked it. But haven't been to the other; need to look it up.

It's on the south side of hwy 39 across the road from the Ingram High School.

It used to be near Hunt :)
Here's a picture of the old location.

Really? I've passed thru there like 2 dozen times. Ha ha. I always lodge in that area, between Hunt and Kerrville (Ingram is between them). Next time will look for it. Thanks.

A few good places to eat when you're in the area.


This year Chicken Earls in Leaky was open for lunch Tuesday and Friday.
This is a outside place so check in the spring to see if they're open.

I sent an invite to the folks from "Two Wheels Big Life" on youtube. they've been living on the road on their bikes for close to two years now. both are now on BMW GS 1250's. hopefully they can make it and you all will end up on youtube. head on over to youtube, or facebook and give them a shout out.
