We haven't even left and we have made some changes to our route. The rain gods are trying very hard to mess with us on this trip. Plans are now to go the westerly route. We will be taking 81 in Oklahoma and continue on 281 though the east side of the Texas Hill Country. The tropical storm "Raymond" is the cause of the weather issues.
As we pull out we are wearing our rain suits. The temperature is really nice and is in the 70's. Our first stop will be Chickasha to meet up with the Darlings. As we pull into the gas station it starts to sprinkle just a little. It's looking like we are going to be getting wet, so we take a quicker route down the HE Bailey Turnpike.
We make it to Jacksboro around noon and we decide to grab some lunch. Checking the Urbanspoon app, I find a place that has burgers....and we are hungry, so that is where we will be eating. It is called "Herb's Hamburgers".
There is no place to sit inside...you order and then take your burger with you, or sit outside at one of the two picnic tables. At least the weather is cooperating. The burgers were really good.
We are ready to get moving again and as we get on the bike we start getting a few drops of rain. Never really rained hard on us. Just mist every once in awhile.
We ride and dodge the rain drops all the way to Lampasas. By that time it is time to stretch our legs. The local DQ looks like a perfect place to do just that.
Back on the bike we make our way towards Austin. We hit one area of pretty heavy rain but all in all it wasn't bad.
