    I-10 from Texas to California might possibly be one of the most boring highways in the country .

    There is a group heading out called the Greybeards. Guy's from Florida,NC,Alabama,Georgia,OK,TX,NM AZ,KY,Canada,Austrailia,Minn, and Cali. This will be the fourth annual run to LARS. Meet up in OK at the Da34guy's (Don) and head in from there and pull into Pomona on Wed afternoon. Have had a blast on this run with a great bunch of hot rodders.
    Oh yea I second philly on the most boring route ever down I10.

    I got to wondering what the distance is 3 different ways from Mobile, Al...here they are......Leave Mobile, go through Dallas and on to Pomona 1972 miles.....Leave Mobile, go through Houston and on to Pomona 1986 miles......Leave Mobile, go to Dallas, then Oklahoma City and hook up with the Grey Beards and on to Pomona 2068 miles.....what way you think an Old Man that has had this on his Bucket List of Life is going to do......Yep...go hook up with The Grey Beards.....probably come back by way of Dallas and then home......besides, Don said he has a BBQ on Saturday Night before we head out on Sunday from his place.....Gotta see if he cooks BBQ as good an Old Southern Guys do.

    I'll be traveling with Skirtless33 in my 32 5 window. OL55, I just saw your thread last night on the Garage Journal about your garage your Hotrod party and I sent a link to Skirtless33. He's been hosting a Hotrod party himself for many years and in fact this year's party was just last Saturday. He fixes chili and butter bean soup and beer. He had 33 people this year and it was a good time and a real good turn out for a snowy and icy day. Love your garage and hope to see you there.
