Texas Ride July 29th

Found this on another forum and thought I would pass it on...



What: The First Houston/DFW GTG

When: Saturday, July 29, 2006.

Where: The town of Centerville, TX. Located at the midway point between Houston and Dallas on I-45, about 1hr, 30mins from each city. We'll plan to get there around 2PM, and get together for lunch at Woody's Smokehouse on the northbound side of I-45. After lunch, we'll head to Fort Boggy State Park on Highway 75, South of Centerville for photo opportunities.

Leaving from Houston...We'll be meeting at the Cracker Barrel at 14765 North Freeway. Houston, TX 77090. Take the Airtex exit (exit 63) from either direction to get there. We plan to meet up at 12:00PM, and depart for Centerville at 12:30PM. If you would like to have a late breakfast or early lunch while you're there, you're welcome to arrive earlier than 12:00PM, but just be ready to leave at 12:30PM.

Since we're having so many responses from cities other than Houston and Dallas/Ft.Worth on the other forums, we can just call this a Texas MB meet instead of a Houston/DFW MB meet. Everybody's welcome, no matter what city you're from.

Look forward to seeing you there!

easty.....that stinks but I guess you gotta do what you gotta do right??

As of now everything looks good for me but I know I am headed out to Los Angeles on Sunday the day after. Hopefully the drive isn't too bad.

Anyone know how long of a drive it is from Dallas?? I'm actually in Rowlett, TX.

Well..........Everyone....this is what I dreaded.

I will not be able to go to the meeting on Saturday morning/afternoon the 29th of July.

I will be coming back from Los Angeles late Friday night (1 AM) to turn right around Sunday afternoon and head back to LA.

Sorry guys.....I will have to do this another time.........

Angry Sorry I can not join you

Sorry I can not join you but Saturdays are usually busy days for me.

If something like this was scheduled for Sunday, I could participate.

It sure sounds like a very nice adventure.
