A Hill Country Thanksgiving!

We had a chance to take a trip south to enjoy the riding and get in some last minute camping before the weather turned cold.

Jamie and I started to look at the calendar and realized that we had the week of Thanksgiving open for a road trip. I have recently left my retail management position and having a black Friday off was not something I was accustomed to. We started to look at our options and we decided this would be a great chance to get in one more camping / riding trip. The Texas hill country stood out, as the weather was looking inviting for the area. Plus we had not ridden in that area for a few years. So… Hill Country here we come!

The wheels started to turn as we started planning our Thanksgiving trip. We wanted to squeeze in one last camping trip for the year. We decided to trailer the Versys behind our Subaru. This would allow us to have options, if the weather changed. We were set and ready to go. The good news is we had a few friends that would join us. Yeeha was doing a last minute ride to Big Bend, so he decided to swing over and ride with us for a couple of days. Yeeha would leave on Wednesday and then Becky & Jeff would come join us for the holiday and enjoy some riding. We have such great friends.

We rolled out on Sunday and made our way the 5 hours to North Texas. We stayed with our friend Rob and had a great time catching up with him. The next morning we got up early and had breakfast with some of our riding friends before hitting the road for the hill country.

We made our way down south with a couple of stops along the way. We always make our way to Llano, to visit Coppers to have some BBQ. We were not disappointed, the food is always good. After eating way too much food, we made our way to the KOA in Kerrville. We set up the tent and started a fire. Not a bad way to start our holiday week.

Tuesday morning rolled around and it was COLD! It had gotten down to 32 during the night. We were toasty warm in the tent, but the minute we stepped out, we were reminded of the lower temps.
