Ride in the Hill Country Memorial Day 2006

(this posting is copied from my old blog to preserve it as this was one of the last area rides with my good friend and touring companion, Robert Voglino. Some photo links need to be repaired.)

A nice local ride was had on Memorial Day 2006.  The group gathered at “TJ’s” at 8AM, just south of Marble Falls.  Jack, Greg, John, Norm, Blake, Mike and Gil left there about 8:15 for the Blanco Bowling Club Cafe for a great breakfast. Robert and son-in-law Anthony caught up with us in Blanco.

From there the nine of us, plus a 10th fellow who asked to tag along but soon broke off toward Boerne, went West on 1623 to 1888, West a couple of miles to CR104 (a/k/a Crabapple Road) to the Old Blanco Road, thence to RM473 and West to the Old San Antonio Highway, up to the “Old No. 9” railroad tunnel, East on Grapetown Rd. to 1676 and Luckenbach. After a stop to look around and have a refreshment and for the traditional photo-op under the Luckenbach Post Office sign, we left Luckenbach for Fredericksburg to 965 and Enchanted Rock State Natural Area, then Llano, down 71 to 3404 across “The Slab” to 1431, Kingsland and home.

My total mileage was 185 per the GPS and the trip (Blanco_Crabapple.pdf) was really a shakedown for the new Garmin StreetPilot 2610 GPS.  It works well sitting on its RAM Mount from CycleGadgets.
