I have not looked at any maps since reading this post, and it might be out of your way, but check out a little town of Oatman, Arizona. Old western setting with saloons, stores and donkeys roaming the streets.

Every gas station, c-store or fast food joint has a drink fountain machine and I've yet to find one that didn't allow me to get free ice. Ice machines are filtered water (or good enough for me) so I have a constant supply of cold, filtered drinking water as ice melts quickly and without spending $2 for a bottle of water each fill up.

thanks for the tip. Im trying to make this trip as cheap as possible I think that it will give it more of an adventure feeling

hey you guys! so I finally made it home and got all the maintenance done along with new tags and insurance. then I went on a little ride to kinda get the feeling of how the trip would be. I have to say that it was fun but also I got tired alot.. dont know if im rusty or maybe was the heat or a combination of both.

I headed towards Fredricksburg and Bandera. here is a map of the route i took, also I rode from Houston via I-10 to get started.

http://www.motorcycleroads.com/75/57....QpAjSae1.dpbs


I liked this route alot and would recommend to anyone that want to get away for the weekend. I rode 306 on the way to Fredricksburg in the afternoon and hit it right at the golden hour where there is plenty of daylight but its not so hot. I spent the night at Fredricksburg ate dinner and walked around downtown to stretch my legs. it was very relaxing.

then I was very tired and getting sleepy so i tried to get a cheap room to spent the night...to my surprise most of the hotels had no vacancy and the ones that did wanted $300 for the night! fawk that. I was starting to think that I was gonna have to improvise and sleep at the park.. but I finally find something.. i do regret not bringing camping gear or something. what do you guys do in a situation like that ? I know that on long ride you might have to camp at a rest stop or a murder motel on the side of the road. kinda scary tho...im bringing a big hunting knife with me on the next trip.

the next day I made it to Kerville and Bandera then back to the start of the loop. the roads are fun in that area I had lots of fun but then it was time to come back home via I-10 again.. that was the most painful part of the trip i thought it would never end and then i got caught in the rain when i got to Houston.. that was not fun.. but it was part of the adventure Embrace the Suck !! i guess

US 191 is a must. It probably made a top 10 of my favorite roads.

Here's a site with some good information if you ever head a bit more north: http://www.canyonchasers.net/maps/index.php

A few friends and I made it to Logan, Utah and back to Houston in about 10 days. Head for the twisties and scenery, for I-10 was getting out of Texas to NM, AZ, CO, & UT!
