Here's more information on the upcoming "Country Roads Tour 2":

What:
This is a cruise for all Texas Challengers modeled after the recent Hill Country cruises.
It's a 165 mile loop on all 2 lane roads through the hilliest and curviest country I could find.

When:
Sunday June 6th. Drivers meeting at 9:45 am. Cruise begins at 10:00 am. Come early.

Where:
We'll meet up at Love's Truck Stop in Katy, Texas (just west of Houston).
It's at Exit 737 on I-10. We'll end up in Sealy.

How to participate:
Just show up!

What to bring:
The usual stuff you would carry for a 3 1/2 hour drive. Especially sunglasses.
The lead and trailing cars will be in contact by FRS radio, so if you have
any be sure to bring them and help us stay organized.
We will hand out printed maps of the route that morning.

Are there rest stops?:
Yes. We will be stopping about every hour. There will be rest rooms and
gas/supplies at each stop. The tour ends at Hinzes Barbeque in Sealy, so
bring money/credit card.

Here's a short video showing the types of roads we'll travel. Thanks to
RTSilverBeast for his assistance in making this video, and helping to make
this cruise happen:

Thanks to everyone who came Sunday for our second edition of
cruising the back roads of Texas. Lot's of folks running it again,
and many new faces. Welcome all.

I'll post up some video I shot with the "ChallengerCam" tomorrow.

Hess, you're absolutely right! It is time to hit the road again. I've been working
on a new route and it's finally finished. This one takes us up farther north through
Chappell Hill, Washington (the birthplace of Texas), Lake Somerville and around
Brenham to the north and west. It's 152 miles with the same starting and ending
places (Hinze BBQ... I should get a commission). In many ways it's more scenic
and there are still plenty of hill and curves.

Looking at my calendar August 8th is the first Sunday I have available. Of course we
could make it a Saturday if more people can make it.

What do you think?

I am up for a run anytime. My daughters 20th birthday is Sunday but she prob has plans so, I am sure we can work it in. The San Antonio show is that same weekend but I can't do a whole weekend away, but a fun run would work. Either day, what ever works. Are you going to Target Friday night or M/G Saturday? Looking forward to runnin with ya again.
