Heading to Austin Tx for Xmas

Hey gang, who all is in the Austin area? I am coming down to spend the holiday with my brother and his fiancee and was wondering who all from the forum was in the area and to see if anyone was interested in getting together somewhere in town while I am down there.

haha.. well actually if anyone in Austin is not doing anything that day, I may need a ride. Turns out my brother now has to work the day I arrive but he is pretty sure he can run over after lunch to grab me.

No worries as long as the iPods batteries hold out and I have a full pack of smokes, everything else will work itself out.

I am in Austin right now for the weekend and spotted a nice yellow D90 on 2222 & 1 pulling in for gas this morning. Another luck person who scored "d90" on their plate. Anyone here? Was going to pull over and say hi but was in the wrong lane and didnt want to cut off all the fine people around me in the Sister-In-Laws VW.

How long are you in town? I just got back from SCARR2 and had a blast. If you've got the time I'd like to take you out for some BBQ or something.

Hey Tony, thanks for the awesome offer. We are heading home early tomorrow morning but lets catch up the next time I come down most likely within the next couple of months.

Let us know when you'll be down this way. Maybe we can get a few of the Texas Rovers to show up too.
