    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.

    Stopped for breakfast in the town of Burns Oregon. Just before Burns is the town of Hines Oregon where we saw this unfinished concrete building. The story goes that it was never finished due to the depression and the builder ran out of money. I'd live there.

  21. Have a safe journey. Did you notice the wrecking yard on your right just past the BLM hdqtrs? I've always wanted to check it out but never had the time as we were always heading to a show or rod run.
     
  22. My buddies left this morning from Maryland. I have to work and since my 40 is still in the shop recovering from being ran into anyway, I too will be flying into Austin like a rock star Thursday morning. We met ay GNRS and talked for a bit. I'll try to look you up in Austin as well. :) Safe travels.
