    trying to get an idea how many would be interested in a meeting in the texas area?
    if we have a lot in lousiana we could do east tx or if most are in tx we could do austin/san antionio area?

    I live in Austin, but what would we do? Never been to something like that before. Plus, I don't do any off roading. Like other's said on here, "its my diva truck.":D

    one

    just trying to get a feel if there is enough interest.
    me, i'm partial to canyon lake area we could have hot dogs, burgers & drinks. those that have to come farther can camp or stay in new braunfels hotels.
    just check out each others trucks and compare notes meet new friends.
    don't know just thinking out loud.

    I too am in Austin and would like to meet up sometime. A barbeque is always a good meet and greet if you’re close enough.

    I am onboard! I will be "moving" to San Antonio this weekend to get ready for my new job there. So, I will be within an hours drive of Canyon Lake (even on a bad day).

    I say "moving" because I will be in a 5th wheel RV. My house is just now going up for sale.

    Good luck with the move, I think you'll like San Antonio better than Houston. It's still not as nice as Austin, but hey what can ya do. ;)

    That's funny. Almost everyone says the same thing about SA and HOU. Most people I know love Austin, but they only go to visit. ;) I just want to be in the hill country again (although nothing compares to Colorado :( ).

    Does anyone want to take point on this?

    We need someone to organize it and take care of the details (provided we get enough response).

    I would get more heavily involved in getting somehting together, but I will be moving San Antonio (and maintaining a household in SA and Houston). Also, while I love the Canyon Lake/San Antonio/Austin area, I don't know it very well.

    We need to answer these questions:

    1. Who all is coming? (can't have a get-together without the people)

    2. Where will it be? (preferrably reserved so that we can be assured that we have the space)

    3. When will we have it?(A non-holiday weekend has been suggested, but nothing exact)

    4. What will we do? (Activities? Here are some suggestions from eDave: TW Gathering Thread )

    5. Food - I know I gotta eat. :hungry: (I am all about the Barbeque, but I make some decent Fajitas, Fried Catfish, Hamburgers, Crawfish Etoufee, Seafood Gumbo, etc... NOTE: I can't feed everyone. Remember the two households part ;) )


    I would love to see this get-together come to be. I will be more than happy to help out with the cooking. I will have to ask my wife about helping out with the cost. :ballchain: :rolleyes:

    Does any one else like disc golf? If anyone would be interested in that there is a disc golf course in Wimberley called Circle R that has camping, great views along the drive there and surrounding areas. We should be able to reserve it for a weekend.

    I'm sorry that I can't be the ring leader on this one. I've got too much going on right now. Working two jobs, planning an over seas wedding, and trying to start a new business. I will show up and eat all that great food though :D We may need to do a BYOM (bring your own meat). And if we end up camping who's bringing the keg?:puke:

    Congrats on the wedding and business! I have never done disc golf, but I am willing to give it a try. :) I suggest we hit up one of the local breweries to sponsor us a keg (or maybe I am just dreaming).

    My sister lives in SA and I try to visit often. If you ever set a date, let me know and I'm there! I'd love to check out the Canyon Lake area!
