Just remember that this trail and this ride were planned as a fun trail ride. It's not a substitute race event. If you come up on a slower rider, especially a young or inexperienced rider, you should exercise your patience and wait for a safe place to get by.

Please make sure to go to the main barn and sign the release form before you start to ride.

I just spoke with the land owner and the answer is Yes. Camping is expected. They weren't planning for trail riding today, though. Gates are not open and fully marked yet, cattle may still be getting moved. Things like that.

It looked like that area was going to get more rain than we did further NW in Austin. I assume this won't be a problem due to absorption and run-off, and that we're still a go?

The area got some rain, but it needed it. The radar seemed to show that the rain was heavier to the east of the ranch. The TORCS race was probably less than 100 miles to the east. You know how different the weather can be closer to Houston, though. I have not heard from anyone there about the conditions today. I expect it to be OK there. I will post if I hear otherwise.

James, from what I understood you can camp tonight but no riding till tomorrow...so I'm sure you can head on out.

The Mcmahons are good people especially if you are Red Raider fans. just dont show up with any UT or aggie crap on!

GUNS UP!

Ball sports only require 1 ball, I prefer the 2 ball sports!!

Thanks, I suppose I will re-load the trailer now and plan to head up tonight!!

See everyone tomorrow for some seat time that doesn't have VW sized rocks in the path.

Sweet, sounds like an awesome turnout, can't wait! Moist soil at this time of year is a blessing. Don't miss this trail ride!
