The COVID-19 Virus seems to be the default excuse for bad service wherever you go.
Amtrak is quite poorly run and there is no excuse for them not having the ability to properly communicate their policies. The IT people might dtill be working from home so they are safe.
Yep, I'm no more Amtrak for our travels. We rent 1 way rental vehicles and not dependent on incompetance.

0n my LHT I started with flat bars then switched to butterfly when we rode across the US. I did not like the brake lever setup especially on fast descents. I could not keep my hands spread out. Switched to Crazy Bars for riding across Canada and for 3 European trips and other US tours.
They are fantastic!

Wondering if anyone here uses one? I would need to use the 3M stick on part as I don't have the "right" phone.

He is Risen Indeed!

Looking forward to a bit of warm weather. It was 20F last night!

Since you are familiar with the area I have a couple of questions!
Direction, I am thinking CW. Also where to start or where is a good location to start that we can leave our vehicle?

Routes / Texas Hill Country Direction ?

I one way more preferable than the other?

We live in NE Ohio so we are ready for a bit of warm weather.
My wife was asking about services and whether things will be back to normal after the snow storm?

Just saw your post. I am waiting on this map as we are considering doing the loop in late March.
