MOA GETAWAY – SANTA FE
The ride to Santa Fe will leave on May 18th from the Sisterdale Volunteer Fire Department in Sisterdale, Texas. Kick stands up at 0800 – do not be late. The route will be from the VFD up FM 1376 to Fredericksburg. Then to Mason, Menard, Eden, Ballinger, Winters, Sweetwater, Snyder, Post, Lubbock, and Muleshoe, to the Holiday Inn Express at 4728 North Prince Street in Clovis, New Mexico, where we will RON 1 on the night of the 18th. On the 19th we will depart the Holiday Inn Express at 0800, head south and join US-60 and continue on to Fort Sumner, New Mexico, to Santa Rosa, then I-40 to Clines Corners, then north on US-285 to I-25, then to the Drury Plaza Hotel at 828 Paseo de Peralta in Santa Fe.
On Sunday the 22nd we will depart the Drury Plaza at 0800 and retrace our route back to the Holiday Inn Express in Lubbock located at 2115 Marsha Sharp Freeway, Lubbock for a RON 1. On Monday the 23rd we will depart the Holiday Inn at 0800 and retrace our route back to San Antonio. Everyone is welcome. Your reservations at the Holiday Inns, the Drury Plaza, and the Santa Fe MOA Getaway are up to you. If you choose not to stay in these locations, we will depart at the appointed times from the parking lot of the aforementioned hotels.
We will attempt to connect the various communication devices prior to the departure from the Sisterdale VFD, so be there early for a 0800 departure. Mike and I use Cardo headsets and have found it difficult to connect to other headsets without losing the other BlueTooth capabilities of the Cardo. We will use simple hand signals if we cannot connect and for those who do not have headsets.
If you plan to go with us to Santa Fe, send me an email at email@example.com and I’ll send you a GPX file of the route. For now, the website will not allow us to upload a GPX file.
