Cold Front Ride Camp Wallace

The three of us headed south at 9:00 AM Temp 63*.
Two hours into the ride now 74* we see the Cold Front upon us.



We better best stop now too put on cold weather gear.



Camp Wallace on Highway 6 Santa Fe, Texas.
3,300 acres, was once owned by Dave's only Uncle. Taken by the US Army for a training camp WW II.
Sorry Sorry Dave. They took the Land, Ouch. Then they Found Oil, Ouch twice.



Some How? Chuck gets a tree limb into his rear wheel.



We put on the gear. The temps quickly drops 20* to 54*
We head home into a North Wind of 17 mph.
Arriving at Dave's house it was 46* on the bikes.
Dave brewed some Hot Coffee.

51 miles for me.

And I thought my icy ride yesterday was tough. It only dropped 8 degrees (38*F down to 30*F) and I didn't have any killer trees attaching themselves to my bike!

I gotta go to Texas. Warm temperatures and attack trees.

Congratulations on the ride.
