It's that time of year again and tomorrow we set off to the Lone Star Roundup. This is an annual pilgrimage we really look forward to. We have always set out from Southern California and tried to take different two lane roads to see new sights and discover new places. This year we are driving from our new home in central Oregon and most of the roads will be new ground for us. Those of you that have followed along on past trips know my trusty side kick ACME GAL (my lovely wife). Well, she went and got a new job in our new town and couldn't take enough time of for the road trip so she'll be flying in to Austin like the rock star she is. As luck would have it our good friend Dawn wanted to go, so she is my stand-in side kick for this trip. I think Dawn will need a proper side kick nick name before too long......... We leave first thing tomorrow morning and as always we promise to blow up your phone and computer with way too many posts and photos. Follow along y'all.
