We were just talking about this .......


I was gonna suggest that instead of having the meet in Kerrville that we have it in San Antonio. There are better places to stay, things to do, and routes to leave from. Not to mention that we can have an after run BBQ at a local park or even a local's house.

Are you suggesting that we just stay in SA and then drive to the three sisters?? Or that SA completely host the whole thing?

April is good. I'm going to Colorado on May 20th for a week so.............


Riley, we can take a different route from SA and do the same roads but in SA there are places to really party and better places to stay.

I was suggesting that the Meet stay in San Antonio and leave from here, there are plenty of back roads that lead to the three sisters.

Do you have some route suggestions that you can send me?

The only concern I have with staying in SA is time. Starting out in Kerrvile and doing the whole complete run takes close to a day. If we stay in SA that's going to add 2 hours to an already full day of driving which could lead to people be very tired by supper.

I will ask grungepup and kevo to provide route data. If we start out on HWY16 and Bandera I don't think it will add any extra driving to and from. That route is good from the start.

Actually, we did a run a while back where we Started out at Hwy 16 and 1604, ran up to Bandera, then onto Medina, followed by 2!!!! trips around the three sisters. We left around 11 because of stragglers and were back and done by 5. The original run we had planned called for 8 hours according to google, but that calculation is based on going 35mph through most of the roads. We were completed with the run by 2 and some decided to head home while a few of us decided to tackle the three sisters a second time.

Here is a run that we had planned in the past but never went on. It brings in some new roads as well as a new place to eat. If everyone is ok with BBQ, there is Cooper's BBQ in Junction and has plenty of seating and even an outdoor eating area. This route also changes up the way we attack the sisters, we would be doing the 2 majors legs in reverse and at the same time breaking it up giving the drivers to recoup before hitting up the second leg. I also added in a stop at Garner State Park for a photo op, ofcourse that can be changed.

oh yeah.. and the dates... remember that the week leading into the 16-17th of April is Fiesta for San Antonio. Which comes with good and bad, the good is there is plenty of things happening that weekend, we could even shorten the run so people can rest up and hit up the carnival that night or some other event. The bad would be traffic in San Antonio. I am not sure how the hotel/motel situation would be, I doubt many tourists come in and stay that far from downtown as we would be.

I will respectfully disagree here. I would not like to come to a State meet to cut the driving short for a carnival. This is meet for driving, now I wouldn't mind going around the Three Sisters twice then after the meet hang out and chill for the Fiesta but I don't think we should cut drive time. Just my opinion, I came to drive baby not chill lol
