What it SOUNDS like…

Back on November 19, I took to ridin’ the Fall Finale Forty(ish)-Mile Country Path Ramble route solo. Figuring you’d what a reconn report, I provided the description, and I included the photos. I tried to communicate the delightfulness of this ride. But when I compare my memory of the ride against the reports, it seems like words and photos are not enough. Allow me to appeal to another one of your senses.
When you are out there Ramblin’ across the prairie, it sounds like this…

Really. It is quite amazing, and I’m not sure why I haven’t mentioned this before. Listen to all of it, and don’t miss the sound of the far-away train whistle at the very end.
You really don’t want to miss this. The long range weather forecast is improving. The temperatures are going down, but so is the chance for rain. Feeling optimistic.
Are you?

  1. Hey Pondero,I'm getting into touring in the north Texas area and have had a hard time finding others who do so. I have also had a hard time finding routes. Lets talk some about touring in this area. I'm sure there is a lot I could learn from you. Great blog BTW. Keep on Keeping on,Ryan Barfoot

  2. Hi, Chris.Just a note to say I heard a gentleman from Denton county yesterday on Car Talk (NPR). He drives a Cadillac, if I remember.His name eludes me…There you go, a little NE Texas shout-out.~Robin

  3. Rombsy, thanks for Texas greeting. I'm impressed that you made the connection. I've got to wonder, however, if that guy's location is legitimate. Everyone knows we drive nothin' but pickups in Denton County, Texas.

  4. RonDog,That's a tough question. Overall, I really don't think it'll be too bad. I expect puddles, and a few muddy spots. I expect that some of the dry, firm, fast areas might be softer/slower. That said, I haven't been on the gravel roads out near Rosston after a good soaking. I don't want to give an over optimistic view, but I don't see mud being a big issue.Frankly, I'm much more worried about how dry my front yard will be and whether people will bog down in my yard. I've been in Austin for most of the week and will not see for myself until sometime on Friday. We might need to get creative with our parking arrangements on Saturday.
