  • October Texas Hill Country Drive

    Reposted from the local Austin sports car group and the S2000 group in Austin and North Texas:

    The North Texas S2000 Owner's Club, Austin - San
    Antonio S2000 / Lotus Elise drive groups and other
    local sports car owners are putting together a weekend
    drive to the Leakey Springs area. The North Texas
    group does an excellent job of organizing a fun drive
    to the ArkLaTex every Fall. This year the NT gang
    wants to visit the Hill Country and join other sports
    car owners for an overnight stay at The Koyote Ranch.

    http://www.koyoteranch.com/Hometext.htm

    Plans include a 9 AM gathering at Rudy's (Research
    near Braker) with a rendevous lunch in Fredericksburg.
    The SA groups will join us for the trip through
    Kerrville, Medina and then on to the Koyote Ranch and
    100 mile loop.
    Dinner and the Biergarten Saturday night. Lost Maples
    Sunday morning and then the groups venture home.

    Post here, PM me, or ask me and I can put you in touch with the local organizer via email (not going to offer up his email addy to the bot gods...)

    Somehow I managed to inadvertantly close this thread. Dunno how, but anyway, it's back open now. Thanks for letting me know, Stefan.

          I emailed the organizer, but have not heard anything back. I guess I should just show up at Rudy's at 9 on Saturday?

            I will see the organizer in an hour or so, so I will ask him what's up. I'll let you know if anything other than just showing up is necessary unless they have lunch planned; if you're just going for the drive portion, I think you'll be in fine shape to just show up with an FRS radio.

              When you see the organizer tell him I'd like my steak medium rare please.

                  Josh - are you going solo or are you bringing someone? I'm going back and forth on driving my S or catching a ride with someone.

                      I was until he bought the Elise - I'm not sure I'm up to 200 miles just to get to Austin in that thing. Plus, there probably wouldn't be enough luggage space for my camera gear and bag. I'll probably just end up enjoying the driving and let someone else take the photos for a change. Are you going down Friday night?

                        Nope because of work (get off at 9pm) I think I'm just going to get a good 8 hours of sleep and head up early Saturday morning.

                        You should bring the S, let someone else worry about the pictures just have fun tearing up the roads!

                        You going up Friday night or Saturday morning? From the response I saw there's about 4 of us driving up Saturday morning.

                            I just found out today that I may have an opportunity to go to the Texas ou game on Saturday so I will probably miss the drive. If it doesn't come through I'll still be able to come down Saturday morning but this looks pretty good. I won't know for sure until Friday night.

                            Thanks for offering up your guest room Sondra.

                            You guys have fun!

                                  I am assuming the Motorola Talkabout will work fine.

                                    Yes, the Motorola Talkabout is perfect.

                                    I may be going after all if a friend's offer of a car to drive is still good. *fingers crossed!*

                                        I sold it a few weeks ago to finance some investments. I will be replacing it with something lesser in the next few weeks, but I haven't found the right thing yet. I'll be getting another when I finish law school
