    Second time to the Round Up, Last year rode down with some friends and had a blast. This year I was determined to make the drive myself in my 63 Pontiac. So I decided to head out Wednesday to Desoto and spend the night. As I'm getting on the interstate I snapped a pic of my odometer to track how many mile I do this trip.

    86,710 is what I started with.

    First leg of the trip hit a lot of light rain along the way but other than that the drive was great.

    Spent 7 hours driving the first day and arrived in Desoto in the late afternoon.

    So after ariving in Desoto I figured I better find somewhere to lay my head for the night, Finally decided on the La Quinta just down the road from The Cracker Barrel. When I pulled in I met a couple other guys metting up for the Caravan in the Morning.

    After a decent night of sleep, I fueled up on gas and coffee and headed to the Cracker Barrel. Got to meet some great people with some cool rides.

    After the BBQ headed to Austin to get check in to my hotel. Meet up with the guys from Sevens Garage and went down to Home Slice for a bite to eat. What a great bunch of guys, hung out with them alot this weekend and had a blast. On the way back from Home Slice stopped of to pick up some shiners at the gas station next to the hotel and as I walk out I could not belive what was in the parking lot fueling up!

    After the 4th stop I decided to skip the last shop, and since I'm around sick people at work all the time I dont need to be around the kids at the Childrens Hospital with weak immune systems. So it was off to the expo center. After getting there I was having to good of a time and forgot to take picks, but i did manage to snap a few.
