    Saturday is a Christmas gathering in Texas for me. Then I am off on Sunday to OK and KS for 2 more Christmas gatherings and I won't be back until Jan. 1.

    Maybe next time.

    I will be headed out there on Jan 4th to run with a buddy of mine who will be testing out his stock Jeep.

    Sorry I can't go this weekend, but if anyone is up for Jan 4th, they're welcome to join us.

    Thomas.

    Welcome to CK5 /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    To get to the Slab:
    <ul type="square">
    [*] Head west on 29 from IH35
    [*]Cross over 183, and keep going west on 29
    [*]About 45min - 1 hour, you will come up on 1431; take a left on 1431
    [*]Go about 5 or so miles, and take a right at a flashing light (3404 I believe?)
    [/list]
    About 1-2 miles down 3404, you'll come to a bridge. The bridge is the entrance to the slab. If you turn off the road on the right side, before the bridge, you can pull into a bunch of sand and prep (lock hubs, air down, etc ...)

    From the sand, cross the river to the other side, and then head upstream.

    I plan to meet some people at the gas station at the intersection of 183 &amp; 29 around 8am. We'll probably hit the road from there around 8:30am; just to give people time to meet up with us.

    Thomas.

    Tom, this is a good idea. I had planned on going to the Den in SA. Since there will be a few out at the Slab, I think I have changed my plans. I hope to see you all there.

    74beater, welcome to CK5. If you would like an escort please feel free to follow me out. I take a different route than the one mentioned above due to living in South Austin but would be willing to drive the north route if its closer for you. Let me know.

    The Slab run for Jan. 4th is still on. I'll be at the gas station on the corner of 183 &amp; 29 from about 8am to 8:30am if you would like to meet us there.

    If not, you can meet us out at the slab by following the directions above.

    Ok then, time to head out in the garage to do a little prep work for this trip. You know, plugs .... wires ..... fluids ..... fender trim /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif ......

    Thomas.

    Sweet! So who is planning to meet at the gas station at 183 &amp; 29? I would like to get somewhat of a headcount of who will be meeting there so we don't leave anyone behind.

    Woohoo, less than 24 hours 'till 4-wheel time /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Thomas.
