OK...let's try to keep this thread down to the nitty gritty. Planning and scheduling information only for the get-together we want to have in Texas.
I'm going to throw out a couple of things to start with. Please feel free to add anything you'd like.
Below are my personal opinions but they are nothing set in stone. Please, everyone else attending, please add your 2 cents.
1. We need to determine a location.
I think we should keep it between San Antonio and Austin. From what I can tell, the majority of those in Texas are fairly close to these cities. SA and Austin are only about 45 minutes to an hour apart and both have tons to offer. Plus, th Hill Country surrounding us is just amazing. We wouldn't be stuck with just one city's offerings and neither one of them are 100% traffic and construction like the bigger cities tend to be (Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, etc.).
2. About how many are planning to head this way?
From what I can tell, it looks like:
Of course, anyone is welcome and the more the merrier.
April really isn't THAT far away, and I hate to rush on anything. (Keep that in mind when we take off around here...I don't do 90 mph!)
Well...that looks like more than 2 cents, but give me some feedback.
My e*ma*il is CarrieAnn at Austin dot RR dot com.
AND ONLY MY MOM CALLS ME CARRIE ANN SO DON'T BE CUTE!

Mojo, who knows, maybe I'll just ride that way and hook up with ya'll enroute, then putt back up here. Just an excuse for a ride. Lemme know when you finalize your plans. Are you gonna pick up Minx? Carrie and Bet are setting up the scheduling on this end, but some of it depends on when Rocky and Char are gonna roll in.

Then take Hwy 19 (picking up Briggitte on her Kaw) to Interstate 20, then east to Interstate 35 and south to Austin. There's several places to meet between Ft. Smith and Salisaw. Ok.
Bear, Could I trailer (gasp) to your crib and ride on from there? And Id be coming from memphis area, if someone wants to hook up? Hea, if your scooter dies on the road, a truck and trailer look like heaven!!!
We'll be in texas all of march, worked in engleside a couple years... Nothing like south texas, contact me, doakman add a 9 @ the america deal. Gonna stay in Port A a couple days, lets go for a scoot, we'll play the tourist thang for ya!!!!!!
OK...I think I'm about ready to hit the 'send' button on this invitation thing. April isn't that far away and I want to make sure those needing to make arrangements with airlines and stuff have ample time to get the best deals.
Anyway...send me a note if you see someone missing on the list. We'll be adding to it as we go anyway...and please send any suggestions!
