I may be able to get out there on Saturday the 27th. Would be afternoon, though. I'd probably stay a couple of nights, maybe come home Tuesday.
Where are you going to be staying? Fort Davis is a good town to call home base. You ought to go to the Star Party at the McDonald Observatory, it's near Ft. D. Stars so bright they've been known to cast a shadow in complete darkness! The nerdy professors that work there take you through a laser guided tour of the universe and it really is a cool thing to experience. However, they do it late at night up on the mountain and I wouldn't want to ride all the way back to BB or even Alpine afterward. Especially this time of year with the deer in rut.
Just so you can plan your trip, as an FYI. Last October I made it from my campsite in BB to my garage in less than 8 hours. I rode 118 up to 67 to I-10 to 290, a little over 450 miles but virtually no speed limit except on 290.
Another FYI- Alpine is right along the railroad tracks. There's no place in town that you can't hear them when they roll through, horns a blowin' at 2, 3, 4 a.m. etc...
