West of Austin. Rain Rain Rain.

Plans changed.
Only got bike only one day (7 1/2 hours, Cowboy H-D Austin).
Monday April 27th.
Started raining after half hour. Rained most all day. Rains so hard 3 times I had to stop.

Headed west out of Austin towards Federicksburg.
Got about 3/4 the way there and then looked for the little squiggly lines on the map.

Was fun, but still dissapointed that I didnt make it out to Leaky-CampWood-337-336-335.

Looks like fun! Too bad you got rained on. There were some bad storms just north of Austin that day, so I'm glad you only rain.

Aren't those low water crossings fun!

Should've sent the rain down here. Last measurable rainfall in my local area was 11Nov08. Yes, folks, that's 6 months. Have had a total of 3/10ths of an inch in that span of time!!!!!!!!
