    FN's will be my next wheel, but looking at the 16's. I've always been a fan of less wheel more tire.

    Yeah, I was wandering about that. We stayed at the Fredericksburg Inn & Suites. But everything I looked at was high. My lady just wanted to check it out so we just took a weekend trip. We had a good time though.

    Anyone going to UtopiaFest this year? It's a ton of fun- and if we wrangle up 6 total tickets, regardless of when they're purchased, we can get one of them refunded and divvy up the proceeds.

    Best festival in Texas. This'll be my third year going. Two stages with music that never overlaps (it just switches from stage to stage with minimal downtime), BYOB, food trailers, and entirely on private property. A really cool, family friendly, fun scene.

    What kind of music is that? I've never heard of those people/bands.

    It's everything. I only know a few of the bands, but they bring a lot of different styles together. Whiskey Shivers is super fun "trash grass" style music (punk/bluegrass vibe), Chali 2na is a rapper that was in the iconic Jurassic 5 group, Ratatat is electronic, Victor Wooten is a bassist, there's a pipe & drum band, Ruby Jane is a fiddle prodigy... all sorts of stuff.

    Basically, I go more for the scene and less for the particulars of the music. It's usually great and regardless, it's a lot of fun to be there and take it all in.

    Got it. Sounds interesting. Will have to see what's up that weekend.

    Worth it. Also nice, for us Austinites, to be able to get away from ACL.
