I know several of you have expressed an interest in going, so we might as well do some carpooling. I told the DFW crew we'd be there 11:30, so figure leaving Austin around 8-8:30. I'm in Pflugerville and have a truck, so I can take 3 more people comfortably. Or we can take DPeacher's monster and all ride in the same vehicle. Whoever is driving - I figure we can buy him lunch or something to reimburse for gas.

I don't really have any plans for extensive loitering in DFW and plan to be back by early evening.

It's a good thing I'm going since y'all are taking my truck!

My truck seats 5. My wife and son may decide they want to get out of Austin for the day, so I would be limited to two additional passengers if that is the case, and since my wife still talks about the beef fajitas at Uncle Julio's, I don't think she will choose to stay home.

Well, you SAID you were going, so .

We'll meet at the HEB parking lot in Pflugerville right off of I-35 at 8:45 AM. BE THERE ON TIME. We're leaving NO LATER than 9.

LT, the P is silent... 'fluger ville' ;)

Guys, I'm pretty sure I'll be leaving a little earlier than you guys. My buddy that's coming with is from the old school hardcore gunshow visitors that try to get there right when they open. If he drives, I'll just sleep. hehehe.

We'll meet you up there. I'll keep an eye on the other thread about where everyone is going to meet up, and I'll meet up with you there. I'll check with y'all if anything changes.

Shameless bump for the Monday crowd.

What's the deal? Just me and DPeacher going?

[Edited to add] Previous thread indicated that DoubleFeed and mattld were thinking about going. Please don't make me ride to DFW and back with DoubleFeed. He never stops talking and I have to listen to him drone on and on and on.....

You probably would fit behind the back seat if you layed down on your side with your back against the cab bulkhead. There's enough room to store 6-8 AR's back there. Hmmmmm... Can you hold your breath for 3 hours?

Me and my buddy are going to leave around 7. I'm not coming back to Austin that evening, so I think he's going to follow me to Waco, then hop in my car for the rest of the trip, then I'll drop him there.

If I were going straight there and back, I'd offer a ride, but my back seat qualifies as 'cruel and unusual punishment' if you're any over 5' tall. ;)

We'll see y'all up there!

You guys are hardcore. It takes me about 15 minutes to get to Market Hall and sometimes I have a hard time justifying that drive.

Sorry Zhukov. I'm out.

Seeing my Longhorns beat the shit out of the Rice Owls in the rain is where I'll be.

Yall have fun though. Buy something and take pics.

I'll just have to go the next time it comes around.

OK. So we've got me, DVDTracker, FoubleDeed and the DPeacher clan.

Again - Let's meet in the HEB parking lot directly off of I-35 in Pflugerville - exit 247 I think. There's a Cap Metro bus stop covered seating in the corner of the parking lot by the gas station pumps - let's congregate there.

I'll see ya'll at 8:45.

Sorry, but I plan to be back in Austin that evening, or I have MrsZhukov to reckon with!

Guys, my buddy is cancelling on me, so I'll just go up with you guys. I am going to drive myself, as I will not be returning to Austin that evening, and may bug out early anyway. Gotta go to a friend's lakehouse east of Waco for a bachelor party!

I'll meet up with y'all where y'all are going to meet up!

As it stands right now, my wife and son have chosen to stay in Austin. Given the head count above(4 lost souls), we have room for 1 more passenger in my truck. 2 more if we stuff DoubleFeed in the tool box.

We'll just see about that.....

I thought of that earlier and was going to suggest it, but had errands to do after work... There's an IHOP on I35 south of the Pflugerville exit on the southbound side. I love me some IHOP.

If a few people commit, we could meet there at 8:00am and have time to eat and get over to the HEB to meet up with everyone else.

I'm down for it. Anyone else?

I'll see y'all at IHOP.

Where are you guys going to be, so I know where to avoid.

I gotta run an errant over to the church in the morning, but I'll see you guys at the appointed time at the HEB.

Marshal Zhukov sez: BE THERE ON TIME!
