16 hour drive from Tucson. Not bad. I ain't flying with my MGs. I'm gonna have to make this trip!

Those from out of the area, try to get a caravan going and bring more people from your area, or meet up with others on the way....

16 hours? You must drive slow! I made it from the south end of Austin to Phoenix (Chandler) in 16 hours ON THE NOSE. And that was with stopping for 45 minutes in Las Crusas for breakfast. And I was barely keeping up with traffic! hehehe It was exactly 1021 miles from my parent's driveway to my uncle's driveway, and took me 16 hours exactly. 550 of those miles were in Texas! It's one damn big state!! (Texas - Bigger than France) Come on over, we'll show you a good Texas welcome! {edited to add} Hey, LT, does that range have facilities to possibly have something like an IDPA or a Tactical Carbine match?? We might could get Mike of TexasTactical to run something for us up there.

setting aside natural or wife made disasters, i'll be going, gonna try to borrow or rent a camper as well, crew cab holds 4, or 5 dependin on comfort level, i've got a definite 2, maybe 3, so if anybody is between corpus christi and waco, might be able to take you on.

LOL. I got the hourage (is that a word?) from mapquest. I think Hell Paso is about 5 hours. So if Waco is another 8, then I should make it in about 13 or so. With a truck full of NFA, I ain't speedin. Barring unknown events I'll be there. Anyone from Tucson or Southern AZ want to hook up let me know. Even you Phoenix boys have to go through here, we could meet and caravan over. IM me or email.

Anyone going from TN? My wife & I would love to go, we could rent a car but a caravan would be great. (We could fly I guess... how do you fly with guns?)

lordtrader, I'm an FFL/SOT. I don't think I need the form. So far that's the info I'm getting. And that's VERY good news, as I don't have to wait for another form to makes it's way slowly through NFA branch. It'll be great to meet evryone. Spectre, let me know when you'll be hitting town, we can caravan up.

Thing is: Travelling in TX is not a defense to prosecution, its actually law.

are you bringing the S.E.C?

I have received reluctant clearance from the tower. Preliminary arrangements to attend will commence. It's only a 17 hour drive, according to Mapquest.

Gotta talk to the wife about it, but I believe I know what I'm doing with the rest of my vacation this year. Can you say "Caravan?" I knew you could.

[b]eswanson[/b], when it gets a little closer, perhaps we can form a "We're Fleeing Illinoisistan" convoy. Mapquest figures in a twenty minute "potty break" every fifteen minutes. [BD]

Absolutely. I'm not making that drive alone. We gonna have ourselves a convoy!

John, This will be EVERYONE's first GUNSTOCK ever! Looking forward to meeting some of you guys, especially a lot of you guys from out of state. Hopefully the Texas Crew will be able to make it a great event!

For you local guys, which hotel would you suggest for both being close and nice?

Count me as a nother possible attendee/refugee from Illinois ! If you get a FLA CCW you can pack in every state you'd pass thru to get there, plus texas. CKMorley

Mapquest says: Total Distance: 1494.77 miles Total Estimated Time: 24 hours, 15 minutes Translation: It's a three hour flight to DFW, then about two hours driving to Waco. Anybody caravanning down from DFW on Thursday?[:D]
