Well, Brenham is about 1200 miles from where we are in SC. I was hoping I was closer once I moved down here! I'll see what I can do. Rachel and I were planning on riding motorcycles to New Orleans and returning to SC on April 3rd, so we'd already be most of the way there.

The roads are very motorcycle friendly.

Although you could drive the M coupe and leave it with me! Seriously, the drive starts in Brenham but ends about 150 miles farther east. You know we would love to have you and Rachel join us.

I'm signed up.

Hope we don't get snow because I don't want to spend another 8 hours at a truck stop in Walsenburg while they clear Raton pass as we did in 2005.

This is just prior to the road being closed.



If you can't tell, that's Arnie's MZ4 following a truck.

I've thought about joining you good folks some year, but the 2005 pic captures the challenge, well! Planning any road trip involving the roadster for our early spring or late fall
is tricky. That I-25 shot looks like something I wouldn't enjoy even in my X3 with snow tires!!!

Hope you can join us.

The early spring here in Texas is one of the pleasures we get to enjoy and was the reason we picked then to hold the drive. It allows those still in the throes of winter to get a bit of a respite. Our wildflowers are usually in full glory and worth the trip. That is if mother nature allows you to leave the the dreary confines of the north in winter.

Update:

Due to an Antiques Fair near Brenham hotel rooms are non-existent. Navasota (25 miles away) has rooms. Some of us are staying at the Comfort Inn. The website has been updated with hotel and food info for Lufkin.

Sorry to hear that.

This will be the last drive I put on. Gonna pass the drive down to others and I'll just be a spectator.

I'll be out of pocket for a couple of days pre-driving the route.

I'll get the website updated when I return if there are any new registrations.

I would love to head out that way but we are doing a North Ga trip the weekend before so that one will have to wait till next year.

Have fun.

Best regards
