Overnight / Multi-day rides

 

The best way to get to know people is on the overnight rides.  Pull up a chair by the pool and join in the conversation.  You will come back with a few new friends and many new stories to tell.

Diamonds are Forever Weekender
May 25-27, 2019
KSU 8:30 a.m.
Buc-ees, 1700 Highway 71 E, Bastrop

**This is a closed event for Cowboy of Austin HOG members and their guests.

We are trying this again! Last time we didn't get to dig for diamonds because of a little weather.....flash floods and tornadoes! We are hoping for better weather this year. 

Saturday, we will head out, leaving Buc-ee's in Bastrop at 8:30 am. We will stop at the last remaining International boundary marker for the Republic of Texas, then on to Shreveport to get checked in. 

The Mudbug Festival is going to be in full swing when we get there. The price of admission is $5 for the whole weekend so you might as well splurge.

"Mudbug Madness began in 1984 as a two-day street festival in downtown Shreveport is now one of Louisiana’s largest and most popular Cajun festivals, featuring renown Cajun, Zydeco, Blues and Jazz artists, mouth-watering Cajun cuisine, raucous contests, and fun for all ages. Now a four-day festival held each Memorial Day weekend, Mudbug Madness is nationally recognized as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events and the American Bus Association’s Top 100 Event in the nation."

Sunday morning we will head out to Arkansas to Crater of Diamonds State Park and dig around for a few hours. 

We will then ride back to Shreveport to spend our last night gambling or eating more mudbugs. Monday morning we will head on home.
