      Got your PM, are you guys leaving with the 5am Houston group since you are staying in Houston Wednesday night? There are two groups, a 5am and an 8am Houston SoWo Rollout.

      Cort, I haven't got confirmation that this is the spot for both groups. Please advise.

      In regards to two groups, there are people that wanted to leave early but cannot, so they are leaving at 8am.

      Also, the Austin/ Waco drivers didn't want to have to leave at 2am/ 1am to leave with the earlier group.

      Just to put this out there, if majority rules, I'm up for just being our own SoWo Roll Out group (Austin/ Waco). We'll go North rather than South with the majority of the drive being on I-20.

      We still have 3 days to iron that out if that's what everyone wants, and by everyone I mean drivers. My GTI will now have 2 GoPros as well as 2 DSLRs for snaps.

      My suggestion is to detail it now.... then you will only have to worry about pre show wash...... most hotels will let you use their hose if asked.. and do it first thing Friday morning before the place is crowded and idiots ruin the kindness of the hotel manager

      Thanks, I got it. Well of what I've heard from my other buddies is rolling at 5am. I'm going to look for a hotel near the mall so we wond delay. If anything, I'll let you know by Wed morning.

      Yeah, there is a car wash in town. One of my favorite things about the weekend is going to that car wash and watching everyone wash their cars.

      Fair enough, I talked to Ben (Leading the 8am route) He said the meeting place has been moved to 7-7:30 at The Chevron at 9805 Main Street

      I said my original "idea" which should be called "idead" now, was to leave Wednesday early evening, go down to Houston. Have dinner with a few of them, which would entail us going over the route with everyone, painter taping our cars, situating what channels we are going to use for the cruise with the radios, and filling up our cars so that come morning, we'd be ready to go with the early cruisers with no hiccups. I made this plan up like a week and a half ago

      Now, I understand that now we have guys coming from San Antonio, and can't make that happen, Then, I find out Waldo is going for sure. Then I find out Jesse is also coming. So naturally, things have changed. Naylor and I discussed the situation over the weekend, and due to his occupational circumstances, he doesn't think he'll be able to make the original plan either. So, adjustments need to be made.

      Since you obviously are making note by saying "drivers", my opinion doesn't matter, but I'm going to voice it anyway.

      Rolling North makes sense only for Jesse, because the route is shorter. However, there are only 3 people leaving Dallas on thursday, and that's Drew (Dorbritz) but he's leaving at 5am and dropping his kid off at Grandma's in Louisiana, Joelzy (which it says he'll be leaving at 7am, but I bet he leaves with Drew at 5), and Rob (also says he leaves at 7am). So, in order for Jesse to make time to meet any of them he'll have to be leaving waco at 4:30ish. But whatever, it's y'all's choice.

      If we roll south through Houston, and meet up with the 8am roll out. We'll be meeting up with about a group of 11-12 cars. Bigger groups are more fun. Period. It's a bonding experience, makes for better shoots, less chance of getting pulled over, less boredom, and is just a better overall good time.

      Plus, the guy who made all the Magnets for the cruise is in Austin, and is going to give me the magnets tomorrow at the Draught Haus, so I can deliver the magnets to the 8am crew.

      The route through Houston is just as fast as through Dallas. I've done both, as long as we go around New Orleans we'll be fine.

      lol Cort...I said "drivers" because the responsibilty of getting to Helen, GA safely is on us. My original plan when none of the Austin crew was even talking to me was heading to Houston to meet with the 8am Houston SoWo Roll Out. Your opinion most certainly matters especially considering you have been on the treks to SoWo before. And, well shit, looking at Google Maps, driving North is actually a longer drive! Ha!

      Update:

      Both the 5AM & 7AM groups are now meeting at the same location:


      Only Drew will be leaving Dallas at 5AM, Joelzy & Brant won't be leaving till much later because he has class. I won't be bringing the BMW after all.

      Anyone driving up from Austin the morning of to meet the one of the Houston groups, good luck. Remember that Houston traffic will be at a premium and you will be driving through West Houston, Galleria & Downtown traffic just to get to the meet spot. I wouldn't wish that on anyone. Safe travels!

      Looks like the second Houston SoWo Roll Out meet has changed to 7am meet, 7:30am roll. Guess we'll have to play catch up if we miss them.
