    beautiful area! be warned the weather can be very variable.
    i was there a few years ago and we had a 50˚ temp swing in about 30 min. 105˚ at the park and 55˚ with thunder and lightning in terlingua. we were in a cage, but had we been on bikes, it would have been a very different end of the day.

    Last March, while the Highs around Rio Grande Village and Terlingua were about 70, give or take, most days with lows in the 40s...the swings between the high areas around Chisos Mountain Lodge and the Desert Floor were pretty varied on any certain day or time, usually depending on Cloud Cover or lack of it...

    Hoot, I would love to go back but I will be landing in Ft Lauderdale on March 1 and driving to Islamorada for a week of fishing in the Keys. If getting a bike there is a problem for anyone who wanted to go, I can get my TW to Gary's house if he has room to bring it along.

    Love Islamorada...been a decade since I've been down to the Keys...plan on getting back soon, and ride Loop Road in the upper Glades of Tamiami Trail {US 41} ..

    Islamorada Sunset...

    On the other subject....Big Bend 2017 Gary, Montezuma, and Hoot, are in the process of "re-thinking' the March Ride...nothing set yet, and I still need to clear some things out...and get with ZDiver/Reddog as well...Gary, and I both have some Home Issues which may push Big Bend back to October 20th....so I will get there, but perhaps fall is in the cards...

    I'm also thinking that October/early November may even be better weather and less crowded{not that Big Bend is overcrowded anytime}....

    Hoot, if you push that date to Oct, I would really make an effort to get that into my calendar. I would like to spend some time in that area.

    I could do any date after Nov 1 but it would be painful to leave here during the height of the striped bass season.

    Mel/Jim{Ebbanflood}..Let me Check with GaryL, Paul Diver, Montezuma Nick...I am thinking the Weekend beginning November 3rd a Friday and going through the 10th or so might be a great time....I've been checking out the Average Weather and it fits into my time between Football and Basketball exactly how I would be able to work it.... Of course I want all of us to be on the same calendar time frame....
