In Houston...
We will meet at Rudy's BBQ at 8:30 AM.
(Rudy's is located on I-45 North, 1st exit just after you pass FM1960 going north. Continue on service road past Walmart, under Louetta overpass, on the right.)

Pull out around 9:00am arriving New Braunfels around 12:30. Will spend the afternoon there an return to Houston before dark.

We will take back roads to Wurstfest and likely return on I-10. (Detailed map to follow.)

Should be a fun time.

Houston is a bit out of may way to get to New Baunfels but it sounds like fun. Actually, after I get back from New York next week I've been planning a little road trip with my son. I was thinking about heading up to Corpus and then on to Galveston. That may be the weekend I'm looking at.

Had a great time. I was the only SLK that showed up. LOL
Had a few Bikes, Hummer and a Truck plus we met a few people there.

It was a long 5 hr trip to get there. Perfect Top down weather! Put about 400 miles on the car.

That was relaxing, not rushing to get to the destination but rather taking time and sight seeing along the way.

Lots of Good Food to eat and plenty of Beer to drink! Looks like a fun yearly event from now on!

Here are the pics if you would like to see them.

Hey Brent - sounds like you had a good time. I did end up in your neck of the woods - drove out to Galveston for Saturday night and then into downtown Houston on Sunday before heading back south.

We had the top down Saturday but it was mostly cloudy on the coast and a little cool. Still nice. Sunday was rainy most of the way back south so top up all the way
