Texas Overland Spring Round Up
Information Provided by: Laud Maroney
The 2nd Annual Spring Round Up will take place April 7-9th, 2017 near Graham, TX in Palo Pinto County. As a departure from last spring in the National Forests of East Texas, we journey northwest to the rolling hills of the Brazos basin. Here we’ll find an expanse of grassy pastures and rich soil where mesquite and red oak grow tall, surrounded by bluebonnets as summer nights draw near.
For this adventure, we find ourselves on the homestead of one of our most loyal members. The Spencer Family of https://www.cbadventuresupply.com/ has been kind enough to open the gates to their ranch for the Texas Overland community.
This year’s Spring Round Up will feature a self-guided tour over county roads through Palo Pinto County with a provided KMZ/GPX map. Back at the ranch, we’ll enjoy a round table discussion on back country navigation/communication, general adventure planning, Tread Lightly principles, general first practice; dive into landscape photography lessons. There will be a Dutch Oven Cook-off. Bring your best recipes, savory or sweet, and put them up against the competition for the group to enjoy and learn.
