I have no clue why viewership/interest is so low....maybe we're the only REAL texans.....the others in tx locations are just visitors from Ok.....pussies :p
The regency bridge is an awesome piece of tx, those of you who haven't been.....come on chime in...if u like architecture, history, or scariness....it's worth the trip.....most the time peeing from the deck ur done b4 the splash at the bottom.
Another thought Llano isn't too far from marble falls 45 minutes to an hour....we could stay at ur campsite in Llano then get up find food, Llano/marble falls/you cook breakfast........& hit up hidden falls instead of stillwater.2 reasons for this thought; true over landing should include conquering some obstacles (not searching them out), but we're a little limited due to all the private land.....that means you've got to atleast do some level 1-3 trails at a park & i think HF offers more of these 'softer trails' then still water....maybe....Haven't got to check out still water in person yet either....but reason 2 more importantly Stillwater's Forte is hunting, so if there is a 'season' especially deer i don't think anyone gets to 4x4. Or in the least HF is also open for 4x4 so we won't have to plan around park access....oh possible 3rd reason increased interest, after i went to HF i had 1-3 pm's from ppl interested about going the next time
also I'm not sure of a place to camp actually in llano....I'm taking your word on that, if not and we close out in Hidden falls we could stay in one of the parks between llano and marble falls....i can't think of any between llano & mason....
but black Rock state park, and inks lake state park are both off of 29(well black Rock is a few miles off).....71 might be a more direct shot to marblefalls tho...if we stay the night in black Rock, or llano area, we drive across Buchanan lake dam(on29) in the morning, another quaint piece of tx largest multiarch dam....but i haven't seen it so idk how stellar that is....longhorn caverns state park is also kind of on the way off 29, but it's further off of 29 & if we stay there or inks it maybe dark (ish) when we cross the dam....
Colorado bend state park could also be made to be otw, but is much further out of the way....
as far as which & where I'm open to whatever/best bang for the buck...I'm not picky just throwing out options. Maybe we can piece something together just nice enough/right sized to make this an annual event....Once we get some more details sorted out & if it's cool with you...to ppossibly increase participation on the actual run I can put the idea in front of some non-zu-guys.....they're more about just 4x4 so I doubt it'll intrigue them.....just another thougt, I'm full of them....
here's the rough drafts i got so far.
meet up Saturday morning 9 - 10 am
meet greet bs check out rigs use your bathroom (I'ma pee on ur tire for being all greedy with the ones at home)
Run along on your overland section
stop along the way for a cold lunch, depending on the timing of your route regency bridge?
continue on to camping location (to be determined)
Shouldn't be too late a night, & a fairly easy day so set up camp (whatever that maybe) & good to great dinner
u make breakfast
we head to a park (to be determined)
wheel an play till 4-5 (or to whenever ppl have to leave due to distance traveled)
farewells & etc...
3 day itinerary
same as above, but Saturday becomes friday. Sunday becomes Saturday, but a full day of park runs
saturday night camp somewhere again...idk how much overnight costs at HF or stillwater, so idk about staying in the park(s)...
Sunday either another half day of wheeling kinda mandates staying the night in the offroad park we choose
or u piece together another section of over landing to take us back to the vicinity of golthwaite or somewhere else?
Or something else entirely on sunday?
