A Hill Country Thanksgiving.

Hill Country Trip 922 Miles – 3 days Last year we headed down to the Hill country for the holiday weekend. Read about last years trip here. So this year we decided that we would do that again. Jamie got tickets again to the Cowboy game on Thanksgiving, we are not fans of the boys (Go Broncos) but my brother and his wife are, so we decided to take them. We had a wonderful time. We tailgated, drank beer and just enjoyed the day. Oh yeah, the weather was awesome. It had to be 75-78 degrees, just a great day!

The Cowboys won and we actually left early as the game was a blow out. Carrie Underwood sang at the half. Tony Romo looked great and the Bucs.. well not so much, they suck! You can see all of the pictures from the game here. Remember to click on the pictures to see the full size versions.

We got up and met Rob at the Race Trac on Legacy and 75 at 8:45AM on Friday morning. We filled the bikes up and headed over to Cafe Brazil for breakfast. The bikes looked great loaded down. The new soft bags sat well on the Strom and they rode like a dream. We were so surprised at how much the bags could take. They were a very good investment. They look great as well. See for youself.

We did not take a bunch of pictures while out riding this time. Jamie is usually the one snapping pictures from the back of the bike while we are zooming thru the country side. I did not let her this time as she is still healing and I wanted her to just sit back and get used to be in the seat again. You can see her work from last year here.

Now as many of you know we had a little accident in September, we totaled the Connie. We were in full gear, but Jamie hit a rock and broke her Scapula and seperated her shoulder. She was in a sling for 6 weeks and is still attending PT. The reason I bring this up is this. I remember my first “get off” years ago. I was scared to get back on the bike, but I knew I had to as it was a part of me. I think that Jamie has that same bug. She has been hounding me to get back on, as soon as the Dr. said it was okay. I love my wife and I am so glad that she still wants to ride with me. I love being on the bike with her. She
