2018 Segment 1 Itinerary / TX

Fifty-Nine Counties

When this segment is completed I will have visited 91 of the 254 counties of Texas. That is thirty-five percent, and a concentrated effort would allow me to complete the remainder of them in under three weeks. BUT, Texas remains an out and back pathway to the outstanding lists of New Mexico and Arizona. So just coming into and swirling around the state isn't yet the best plan. 


Departure and arrival dates and times are always an estimate. If you plan to meet me at a particular monument, or want to ride along with me, you should  Email  or DM me on Twitter to get my cell phone number so I can update you on specific arrival times.

DONATE Budget is always a concern, and I need your help. No daily sponsors have been found, so your help is essential. Please, click on the "DONATE" button at the top of this page. Anybody tossing at least $15 into the fuel fund will receive a 3" tour patch.
