Title says it all, anyone else out here?
Oooohhh, hill country....
we drive out to Arizona most years, once we get to the Kerrville area we are in the American West !!!!
North of San Antone,but property in hills north and west.
Here in Cedar Park 45 minutes from Little River Dragway.
Have a place near Marble Falls but currently hanging in Hutto...So I guess thats a yes and no...
My aunt Martha lives in Oatmeal. She has a ranch named "Snug Harbor". It is on the circle road just behind the Oatmeal can and church. First ranch on the right when you turn on the circle road.
Awesome so far guys. My alterior motive for this post is that I am constantly passing folks on the road in cool hot rods and classics around here. First I want to see who all is out there and then I would like to see of there is any interest in doing a meet or cruze. Just thought it would be cool to all meet up on a fri or sat night somewhere. I guess I could just go park somewhere and throw out a lawn chair to see what happens
Mike- I live just off of the loop but on the otherend from your aunts place. It is a small world.
currently workingin Houston (yuck) but the project is at Lake Buchanan
New Braunfels, here.
Where is Oatmeal? Never heard of it. Anyway, in Bandera. Always out and about but not in a cool classic, yet!!
Treb- lake buchanan is just down the road from me. I agree with the houston part, spent alot of time there when I was working the rigs offshore. Not exactly a "garden spot" in my opinion either.
shadams- Oatmeal is near Bertram which is near Liberty Hill and Burnet (north west of austin). Thats about the best way to describe it. Population is 24, just the way I like it. No home owners associations, no body gives a shit if you have your projects around. Biggest nussicance is the old timers stopping by when they see you out working on them. Thats not really a nussince except that I always get caught up in a couple hours of conversation with them and don't get much work done. But thats OK with me
Always been curious about the hillcountry; sounds like my kind of heaven. (Gotta get down there someday to buy a "reasonably priced" pickup in Houston/Austin, and check it out)
bunch of us out Wimberley way.........
Not the hill country but im down here in Luling. And there are a few guys in Lockhart.
Kerrville reporting in. There are a few HAMBer close by here.
I am all for a get-together or communications idea.
Sitting on my porch swing in New Braunfels admiring our little hills and big thunderstorms. Man, that's therapy.
seatex- my wife is from Wimberly and I grew up in Dripping Springs.
Andy- we will have to set something up, mabey Llano or Fredericksberg. Hopefully we get some more interest.
76cam- i can smell the crude just by thinking about luling
Mikey- might need to talk to you about some striping work
Have a place S. of Leakey. I think there's quite a few streetrods in Uvalde, have seen 'em on the roads around here.
Right in the middle of Austin here
Damn, I thought there might be more out here?
Im on the NW side of San Antonio.....i know not the Hill Country but not crazy far either
where the heck s Oatmeal (DON'T say "next to the eggs!)
Seatex- it's not next to the eggs, it's in a bowl Here is how to get to Oatmeal from Austin, take us183 north to seward junction (just north of Leander/cedar park) and hang a right on to hwy29. Once on 29, continue on through liberty hill untill you get to Bertram(about 12mi after you get on hwy29) once in Bertram go through THE light and take a right at the hungry moose resturaunt on to county road 243. Continue on about 7 miles and you will see a 15 foot tall water tower painted like an oatmeal can. You are in oatmeal, pop.24. Then all that is left to do is stop by to shoot the shit and have a sip of moonshine(made on premises). Where are you located?
Cedar park for me

Pharr, Rio Grande Valley
Saturday night, after 6 pm, Cedar Park at 183 and 1431 behind Schlotzsky's.
