Beautiful Friday morning for a ride!
Rick lead and Rex was tailgunner. I was sandwiched between 2 Ventures. The GSA wanted to run, but Rick kept a great pace and the ride was super!
We saw a lot of areas with nice wildflowers. The Bluebonnets in particular were quite nice.
We stopped in Anderson to get a picture of the awesome old courthouse and we stumbled upon this site.
The Confederate Memorial Plaza in Anderson.
Pat Hagemeister, a photographer from Bend Oregon, took our picture in front of the Grimes County Courthouse in Anderson.

We stopped by the campground Friday evening.
The Chapter 1 folks are serving pancakes and sausage for Saturday morning breakfast.
The Lone Star Riders group of 5 bikes is heading out on the 108 mile loop that includes 3 checkpoints on the Poker Run. As always they put together an awesome route.
I ran as tailgunner so I could film and video the group.
Rough road outside the campground.

Rex is playing for his 2nd card at the checkpoint in Fayetteville.
Greg and John after fueling up in Fayetteville. (Don't ask!)
Checkpoint #3 in Frelsburg.
Checkpoint #4 in Industry with Mike and Tina Smith.
I had a choice of a 10 or an Ace at Checkpoint #4 and chose the 10. I should have taken the Ace as I got both 10s in Checkpoint #5. I did not defend my title of 2012.
