Well, here we are at home with the trip but a long lasting memory. It was an uneventfully 1500 mile, twenty five hour trip that finally ended about 4 pm Monday evening as I drove into the driveway. All the way we talked of the rides through the wilderness of the Big Bend Ranch State Park, the people we met and the plans for the next epic ride.
We all had a great time with the only regret not being able to ride with all the folks attending the B.U.T.T. Ride. There were so many different rides going different directions it was impossible to do them all. Those I did have the opportunity to ride with were a hoot. Exploring places with those of different riding ability lent itself to helping out in a pinch to being helped out when down (oh yeah I was down but not out).
A special shout out to Mr. Bill for being my riding partner. I look forward to hooking up this summer for a ride down your way, thanks again.
The B.U.T.T. Ride stands for Big Ultimate Terlingua Tour put on by the fine folks at www.ridedualspot.com and hosted by Texas Wildlife and Parks Department at Big Bend Ranch State Park. The Red Beanie was offered as a badge of honor to those who attended and will be worn with respect by all those who made the trip. If you ever have the opportunity to attend the ride you will find many great folks, great roads, great scenery and great memories.
I hope we have shown that we can all share this great land with responsibility and respect to others. Enjoy while we can and tread lightly.
Thanks to all……………..
