With Bryce at Texas Bible Institute in Columbus, TX..... I was longing to ride with my boys. All Winter, I dreamed and planned for our first, spring ride. What would it be? Finally, I arrived on a plan. Tyler and I would trailer out VStroms from Colorado to my Mother's home in Brownwood, TX, where we would meet Bryce. For the past year, Bryce has had his VStrom at my Mom's.
We would get up early on a Friday morning....and ride to West Texas, enjoying the Davis Mountains and Big Bend.
But it would not happen.
Upon arriving at Brownwood, we checked the weather and decided to 'bag' our trip to West Texas. The weekend temperature forecast for Big Bend was north of 105 degrees!!! (really high for the first of April) So, we needed a plan "B".
A couple of weeks earlier, a fellow rider had posted a note to me about the TAR (Texas Adventure Ride). As serendipity would have it, the TAR was happening the very weekend we had scheduled our ride and would be based out of Junction, TX.... only a short, two hour ride south of Brownwood. We decided the Hill Country would be our destination for the weekend. (And a great decision it was, due to the Range Fires that sparked and burned out of control in West Texas all weekend.)
