 7) TRAVEL ALTERNATIVES: 

Meet about 9:00AM in Kerrville for breakfast for the traditional group ride through the Hill Country to Fort Davis, via Del Rio-Sanderson-Marathon-Alpine (someone may step up and coordinate for those wishing to travel that way). 

Travel in your own group via route of your choice - there are several very enjoyable roads south of I-10 (if you want company, make your plans known to the group).

 8) Forum:

A thread in the forum has been started for this trip. Go to the forum to get in on the discussion and up to date information. Ask for help if you have not been on the forum.

9) Notify the trip coordinator:

Continuing our planning for Fort Davis and the Big Bend Country, I need to start "organizing" (and I mean that very loosely) some of the trip details. 

If you're going, will you please send me an e-mail to michaellmcc@yahoo.com and let me know the following:
1) Names (if accompanied) and where you're staying
2) If you intend to join the HCBMWR group for dinner on Saturday evening
3) Your planned route and travel dates (esp. if you want to meet others for the ride out)
