    George, from Allen (north-east of Dallas). Can meet up anywhere my GPS can find. 2004 silver. 2-say radio.
    Allen, TX
    The best trophies are miles on the odometer, stone chips in the paint, dead bugs on the windshield, and the occasional smell of manure.

      Hey Dave....we're in.

      George...we're in Allen also....surprised we haven't seen your Tbird (or maybe we have and didn't realize it).

          It's a small world, ain't it? I think I saw you at the intersection of Greenville and Main last weekend, or the weekend before.

          I don't know yet which route Dave is going to take to New Orleans (east to Shreveport or south to Beaumont). However, he lives in Garland, which is "on the way" for us either way, so we probably ought to head for Garland and pick him up there.

          I am really looking forward to it. Ozarks was my first TBN event.

            Greenville and Main.....it's possible. Whenever the weather is nice, we are out with the Tbird on the weekends.

            We wanted to do the Ozarks trip, but we had just been up there 2x in 2 months (Barbara, my wife, has family in Eureka Springs).

              Guys, I think it might be better to arrive a day early, so I booked a room at the hotel for Saturday arrival in NO.

                Dave, I just tried to extend my reservation. No dice. The hotel is completely booked up for both our TBS Bloc and the rest of the hotel. I will spend tomorrow finding a motel around Baton Rouge for the 14th. Then I can take an easy drive into NO on the 15th and meet up with you all.

                  Are y'all planning to drive to N O in one day? We usually stop in Opelousas which is about 6 hours from Bedford. Then a relatively short drive to N O.

                    I will defer to Dave re. this question, as I am the guy who gets lost between Allen and Plano.

                      We like the idea of breaking up the trip. While we love our bird 8 hours in one stretch is a bit much.

                        We don't have a hotel reserved for Saturday.....we'll probably do the drive in one day. Heck, we drove back from the South Dakota rally in one day (18 hours......the Tbird was comfy, but I never plan to repeat that long of a drive again).

                          I will do it in one day, leaving Saturday morning. Anyone wants to join in is welcome. Meet in Mesquite at the McDonalds on old hwy 80 at Beltline at 8:00 AM. That should get us to NOLA in time for supper.
