Hey tacomaworldlings, I figured I would make this thread early in the year to see if it catches more interest. The date is set for July 21st, 2012, lands on a Saturday. So mark the date on you calendar!
Just like the last two years, we will meet in the Wal Mart parking lot in Port Isabel. The time to be there is between 1 and 2 pm, we'll roll out of the parking lot at 2 pm, and head over to SPI in a "tacoma convoy".
Bring out some fire wood, bring teh grills, BYOB, and prepare to spend the day chillin at the beach! We'll have some burgers on the beach, we'll make a fire to sit around at night and shoot the shit.
Last year we were more organized that our first meet, and man did we turn some heads driving around, the cruise down the beach looking for enough space for the 6 of us was totally worth it! We turned so many heads, it's not every day you see a bunch of fixed up tacomas driving down SPI , people taking pics of us driving down the beach. AWESOME!!
So who is game?
I don't have a grill or canopy but I can bring a cooler full of cokes, plates, and paper towels...
oh and some matches too for the firewood!
Be at the Academy parking lot at 1604 and Potranco:
714 W. Loop 1604 N
San Antonio, TX 78251
at 7am on the 21st (Saturday). We'll roll out no later than 7:30, and plan on arriving in the Corpus area between 9:00-10:00 am.
If anybody from the Corpus area wants to meet up with us and drive down, we can all meet up at the Robstown Chamber of Commerce. here is the address:
1024 Texas Yes Blvd, Robstown, TX
We'll wait half an hour (if the SA drivers aren't too antsy to hit the road ) and take off no later than 10:30 am.
We should arrive in Harlingen between 12:30-1:30 pm
If people from the Harlingen/Mcallen area want to meet up with us to drive together to SPI, we can meet up at the Harlingen Travel Center, here is the address:
Tex Best Travel Center Inc
1921 West Tyler Avenue, Harlingen, TX
again, we can wait for half an hour. After that we can drive together down to SPI!!!
For any late stragglers, or people already at the Island, we'll stop at the Wal mart parking lot in Port Isabel. We should be there no later than 2pm!!! Wait for 15-30 minutes, and drive on over all together to SPI!!!
Yea, it seems like a lot of time will pass by waiting for others. But it'll be worth it.
Like I said before it takes roughly 4 hours to get from SA to Harlingen TX, and that's with one 5 minute stop. With the stoping and waiting it'll take more time.
Me :cooler with cokes, burger patties, cheese, condiments
Battle Pope : cups, eating utensils, napkins, garbage bags and half a dozen big bags of chips w/ assortment of dip.
