    Well Happy New Year to everyone. Jan 1st means alot of things to alot of folks, but to us in LSRU land it means the planning has begun for the 11th annual Round Up. Registration is open and the applications are already arriving and there is some choice cars already making plans to attend. You can go to for all the skinny on the show and register at that website. The dates this year are April 13-15 so mark it down and make plans to spend some time w/ us in Austin this Spring. Looking forward to seeing everyone this year. See you soon, Your pals from Kontinentalville.

    Vacation days on the calendar, rooms booked at the Austin Motel, and thrashing on the DeLuxe! LSRU is the one and only vacation we take every year without fail and we can't wait!
  11. We will be coming in straight from VLV on Route 66, pay Flat Top Bob a visit, and on to Austin.
    Its going to be an Epic trip, stay tuned.

    The Kiwis will be back this year. Last time we flew in ,this time its a rental. But will be cruising with a buddy so its not all bad. Really looking forward to it, and catching up. What sort of time do we need to allow to drive from VLV to Austin?

    Yes, yes yes!

    For those that missed the other lodging thread,
    I have again arranged a group rate at Embassy Suites 300 South Congress---about a 1/2 mile from the Continental Club
    Direct reservation link

    Group is Lone Star Roundup and $149 is the nightly rate with all the Usual Embassy stuff including parking(enclosed garage), wifi and full breakfast.

    Can't wait!

    I will not be there, please plan accordingly.
  20. My body is here, but my mind is in Austin already.

    I`m like a kid waiting on Christmas. I think it crosses my mind at least once per day.

    I will probably be driving my `56 down this year. At least it`s 90% ready to go.

    Got rooms booked at Embassy Suites.
  21. the 56 is getting road worthy as we speak.
  22. We WILL be there this year
  23. More epic than your last Route 66 trip? This I gotta see.

    Unfortunately, I do have flights and hotels booked that weekend... but not in Austin.

    Some one chime in and let me know how hard it is to park a trailer at Embassy Suites.

    Worried about room to park one.

    I stayed there last year (and had a great time) and noted several (4-6) tow rigs parked outside of the garage. There seemed to be plenty of room if you arrive Friday afternoon/evening. I don't recall any tow rigs in the garage, probably due to tight turns. Take note: a few of these tow rigs were parked in a fire lane for several days without issue, just food for thought.
