Recently Paul B, an Organizer with Ride On DFW joined our group and asked me to join their group for the purposes of sharing rides and information.
This is a 6 Day Trip to Big Bend National Park. The ride will take in part of the Three Sisters, the Pecos Trail and McDonald Observatory. And of course Big Bend. Approximately 1,500 miles round trip. There is plenty of time for taking in the sights.
So far there are eight riders going including Alex and me.
Depending on the amount of cb's on the trip, will determine the number of riders allowed on the trip.
HOTEL INFO AND DATES FOR RESERVATIONS.
Please make them as soon as possible. They fill up fast down there. I just got my reservations and had no trouble getting them.

Paul had to change a couple of towns that we were going to stay in because they are booking up or the price for rooms was way too high. He tried to get the most reasonable rates possible and still be at decent motels. The Big Bend Resort is run by the National Park Service, even though it sits outside the boundary's of the park.
Paul will have the final GPS route available shortly and will give it to anyone going on the trip. Just ask for it.
This sounds like a great trip but you have act fast. The motels are filling up fast. Check out this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=6jhn5sNnlj8
