Niles, I was planning to visit with the Austin SC group at Big Bend next week, but have changed plans. I have a campsite (loop 6, site 40) at Rio Grande Village regular campground, if someone from Austin group needs this to go in their own car. The reserved dates are check in on Monday, Nov 25 with checkout on Monday, Dec 2. (I led this trip in 1980 and 1987.) Let me know (on this blog) by 8 pm CT this Friday and we can work out the details. p.s. I need to cancel this weekend.
I will be going to the Pre-trip meetup on Wednesday instead and can settle up with payment then.
Hi Niles. Is the Sierra Club still doing Big Bend this year for Thanksgiving and will it be posted soon? My friend John went last year and enjoyed it. This year I will be joining him. -Emily
I would like to meet you guys for tubing but not for the hike. I can meet y'all at Lions club around 12:30 -1 pm.
Hi Niles, did you get my email message? If not, let me know...yes, I have ideas...there is a short little hike from the Meadows Center, could be about a 4 mile hike up a nature preserve trail, then back down to the Meadows Center, then there is a short trail around the Center...let me know if you get this, OK?
Just wanted to let you know that on August 31st Circuit of the Americas is having a biking event open to the public on their race track. I plan on going. If you or any other bikers are interested, you can sign up at rideamericasnow.com
Hello Niles, I don't think I have officially met you through this meetup but I have been to a few Sierra Club Meetup events in the past. I was hoping you could let the group know that I am hosting the National Wildlife Federation Habitat Steward Training this September. For more info they can either contact me at [masked] or go to our website on the City of Austin: http://austintexas.gov/department/wil...
hi Niles...yea i familiar with that Buda route did it many times with the Saturday morning group from Perforamnce bike shop. thanks for the link to the ride, i will check it out..
hi Niles...as a follow up to last nights meeting, maybe we could have an outing here in San Marcos...I live right up the road from the Meadows, ( Aquarena Springs) ...there are some good hiking trials nearby. We could meet in the morning, see the center, hike and have a picnic lunch on the picnic tables there at the center.....I imagine you have been but it is a lovely spot.
I don't know who can lead these outings, but I suspect it must be someone who has an official title...?.
