I'm guessing but probably around 4.5 to 5 hours...

Looks like closer to 5 or more...just search from your address to crowell. It's about 10min north of crowell.

I think it's just a women thing....my sister-in-law can take a short drive to Houston from north DFW and turn it into a 6 hour adventure....luckly for me, I married the better one of the family.

That must be the .50 that my son Charlie shot. He still likes to bring up the fact that he's shot a .50 cal and the old man hasn't. Thanks for giving him the opportunity Jeff_1.
