We're not leaving till Thursday morning and we're going to Birmingham first. We're taking my brother's and Dad's ashes to the cemetery where my mother is buried. We'll be in BG sometime on Friday.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

David, here's an option: If you get an early start, you can probably make it to Texarkana close to when we're going to be going through. We should be hitting Texarkana around 9-9:30AM or so and we can leave Rockwall a bit later to give you some extra drive time so you can hook up with us.

Ah, yes that might work! I thought you were going to be in Rockwall, Arkansas Wed morning Whoops!

Katy to Texarkana is about 322 miles. Maybe we can find a place to stay on the north side of Houston Tuesday night and cut out about 60 miles or so. That way we wouldn't have to leave the house at 4am

Let me see what I can figure out. Thanks!

Slight plans change for me. My passenger...tshirtsandjeans...will be staying at Liz and Kevins and leaving her car there. Since they are taking one vehicle, she has no way to get to Rockwall. Therefore I will stay at Liz and Kevin's on Tuesday night and we'll get to the hotel first thing in the morning with everyone else.

I'll be leaving on Tuesday, taking 55 to Memphis, then 40 to Hermitage TN., just past Nashville to spend the night with relatives. I'll head up 65 to BG in the morning.

Turns out Dixievet and Yamma live about 2 miles away from my relatives, so I'll head over there in the morning and follow the smoker to Bowling Green

I think we are going to hoof it up to Lufkin Tuesday night and then head to Texarkana and meet up Wednesday morning. Still working on these plans, but if we do this it will cut out an extra 2 hours of driving on Wednesday morning for us...which is nice

I'd guess that everyone will be pulling out of Rockwall around 8AM. I'm sure the tech savvy among us will be posting updates of our progress here in this thread.

How about a 7:00 AM sharp departure time Wednesday from La Quinta in Rockwall TX. ?? This should put us in Bowling Green about 8:00 PM + or -, depending on stops and traffic.

Works for me. As it turns out, I'll be in Rockwall with all you hobos after all due to some logistical changes. I was just throwing out a time but 7 works just fine.

If I recall the last time we said leave at 8 and we didn't shove off until 8:45.

David - it's 150 miles from Rockwall to Texarkana. If we leave at 7AM, we'll be there by 9AM or so.

No prob Wendy, but you should still consider staying in Rockwall. It'll cut a lot of time off your drive and you'll get an easier start.

Ok, where do you want to meet in Texarkana? Nacadoches to Texarkana is almost the same distance from Rockwall to Texarkana Can we start an email blast to everyone with all our names and phone numbers so everyone has it? Or is that overkill?

Let's meet at the Discount Tire store. It's right off the freeway and has...ahem...a special significance for me...

I will PM you with my cell and Liz's cell.
