Late april?
This will be one day trip, we'll leave Saturday early morning and we are driving back same Saturday night, I have some walkies talkies to keep us busy from the 3hrs trip.

Where is your starting point? The most likely route is through Houston which is about 100 miles of concrete freeways beginning at Conroe until you get to the bottom side of Houston. You could however come through the "back doo"r and take the ferry over to Galveston but you would need to know the back roads perhaps west from the Beaumont area.

I went down there last year and don't know a good way except through Houston which I detest. Coming down from Dallas a good stop for a meal is the Cracker Barrel in Conroe. Easy off and easy onto I45. Then the "fun" begins.

kate, me and richie from streetkiaz are probably going to ride up together if he goes. Not sure what way wed go because he's in austin but we could meet up In san marcos, take 21 to 71 for a while until we hit I-10. Its about a 3 1/2hr drive from san marcus

Yeah y'all meet up somewhere then make your way to I 45 or something, that's the easiest way to get into galveston.

I recommend zach and any sa folks meet at my place first, then head to the IHOP at the 123 exit on us10 to meet up with folks coming from the north and to grab some breakfast. There's 2 or 3 gas stations at that intersection also.

SA folks shouldn't back track to san marcos. We should meet in seguin for efficient routing for everyone.

We can meet somewhere in Houston, like a walmart so everyone can get some water or snacks for the photoshooting, then after everything is done we can all go eat somewhere.

I'll look on the map which walmart we can meet before heading to Galveston.

Edit

How about this walmart? its outside Houston and its near by the freeway.

Yep that sounds like a good plan. Talk to them SA ppl and get a solidified plan. then pick a meeting spot for us in the south and north.

I gotta talk to the people in Dallas, but what I would like is leave Dallas either 8 or 9 am so I guess we can meet at the Houston either 11 or 12.

Heather, I guess we can meet there and drive together to Galveston, also Anabel would you be able to meet us at walmart? If not then give us an address where to meet.
