Absolutely... if you're going you better join in with the convoy...

Quite sure we will have a meeting time/place in the Katy area just West of Houston on I-10. A lot of our club members live out that way...

BB better roll with us too this year...

well guys there is a SA to CFest thread...for people to join in....what I am wondering if one of the BIG DOGS there will coordinate a meet like Chris did for people to meet up this year. but I am sure that there will be quite a few of us going that way.....and considering we don't change roads till El Paso, it an easy drive, just a long one.

here is the other thread:

Shouldn't this be the "Houston to San Antonio Caravan" post because that is when the party starts and the REAL caravan begins....

The Texas Caravan was awesome last year! I can't wait to see how many people sign up for this years!

Is everyone kind of thinking stopping in El paso for the night or making the 40 minute drive further into Las Cruces??? I'm not real familure with either area so I don't know what is best!

firefighter1, I would bet that whom ever is going to coordinate the caravan for the SA group, will set up all the stops, places to stop and eat, gas stops, and where, as a group, we will stop for the night. just like the texas caravan did going this year......we will just have to wait for "DETAILS TO FOLLOW" in the future. as a group we will get to together for the run to SA from H-Town.

Still working out the details of this trip for us - probably turning C5FII into a SW tour for the kids (Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Route 66, Santa Fe...).

Our mid-way stopping point for trips from Houston to Phoenix in the past was Van Horn, TX. About 120 miles short of El Paso but 10 hours from Houston and about 8 or so from Phoenix.

That's kewl, I'm just working on hotel stays for myself, but here's the deal. I can set up group rates very cheap since I'm a fire fighter... SO if each of the caravans start thinking of a stopping point for that night then I'd be happy to help get a group discount! But, the downside is I have to give the hotel at least a two month's notice. It's a pain in the ass, but a great perk for saving us a few dollars!

That's what I had thought too was a good stopping point, but others have mentioned el Paso, or even driving the 40 miles furhter to Las cruces... I'm open to any, I've just putting feelers out to what others think!

I am in this year. Just looking into how much it would be to rent in Houston and drive with ya'll. Or fly to Phoenix and rent and meet yall ~20 miles out of town and ride in with ya. And I will be renting a Camaro if at all possible (or a Vette if a Camaro isn't available)

I looked into a flight for my wife.....a NON STOP round trip from Houston to Phenix was $309 on Continental.

Maybe someone in the Houston area needs a Co-pilot to ride with and share gas costs...
