Yes sir, are you in the Austin area? The organizer and I are meeting today to game plan. You're more than welcome to join us. We're meeting at the High Country gastropub at 3pm today. It's in Round Rock

That's the one!
I was on the fence between Gaia and OnX Off-road. I went with OnX in the end. It's got a number of trails mapped already.

This is what I found from Gaia. Looks like it has most everything you got as well.
Few last minute questions.
What the fuel situation? I have 2 5 gallon tanks I would be willing to leave at home.
Are we doing comms? I have both Ham and GMRS. Any other things I may be missing since I didn’t get a chance to connect with you all?

for fuel, I typically fill up in Alpine and also carry a 5gal tank. We can also fill up in Terlingua if needed. I'm happy to offer the 5gal to anyone who needs it.
For comms, Joe has a couple handheld motorola radios but I don't know what technology they use. I believe it's GMRS.
Food is the only other thing I think we discussed. We'll plan to stop at Porters Grocery in Alpine to stock up.

Hey guys, did we ever get any videos up? I didn’t take hardly any footage. Need to remember the gopro and drone next time.
