It that time of year people...............time for another Hill Country Run. Everyone keeps asking about a date, so it is set, Saturday November 11th beginning at 11:30 am.

Same as the previous runs, we will leave the Albertson's parking lot at "The Y" in Oak Hill, leaving at 11:30 am...............................the run will return to "the Y" at 6pm in time for the Saturday Cruise Nights that are held in the Albertson's parking lot. Check back on this thread for details on Saturday's route and activities. I'm sure there will be a caravan later in the evening for dinner at Bone Daddies or something.

Sunday will not have a full cruise planned, however we will all meet up again at "the Y" at noon and make a short cruise over to the SaltLick for BBQ, then everyone can make their roadtrips home from there.

Mark your calendars and remember, all are welcome.....................

Hotel Information:

For those coming in from out of town. For previous Austin Meets, most guys stayed here and shared rooms. It is really close to the meeting spot in Oak Hill. It was previously owned by Ramada Inn, now the Oak Inn.

Saturday and Sunday's Meeting Spot:

Directions to the Albertsons are really easy, from IH-35 south of downtown Austin, follow signs for Highways 290 West & 71 West towards Johnson City..............eventually the freeway will end and turn into a 4 lane highway, go through 2 more lights and Highway 71 will branch off to the west and Hwy 290 will continue in a southwest direction. This branch is known as "the Y", there is an Albertson's at that intersection where we will meet.



From the Albertsons we will head over to "290 West" for lunch before we hit the road. It is just 6 miles from "the Y". If anyone is running late, they can catch us at "290 West", we will leave there for the cruise about 1pm. There is also an Exxon next door to the Bar and Grill, so we can all fill up before we head out.


The "290 West" phone number is (512) 288-0808. They are located 6 miles past the Y in Oak Hill at 12013 US 290 West. If your coming out of Austin it will be on your left hand side just past McCoy's. Look for the big 290 West neon sign in the sky.

Dan kicking back at "290 West" during the 2005 cruise!



Saturday's Cruise Route:

We’ll leave 290 West at about 1pm, Hwy. 290 to right on Fitzhugh Road, to right on Ranch Road 12, to left Hamilton Pool Rd., Hamilton Pool Rd. thru Cypress Mill, to right on FM 962 to right on 281, to Round Mountain, Texas, then left FM 962 to left on Hwy. 71, to right on RR 2233, to left on RR 2900, to Kingsland, Texas, then left on 1431 to right on State Hwy 29, to right on State Park Rd. 4, through Inks Lake State Park, follow Park Road 4 until it comes out on Hwy. 281. From there, Hwy. 281 south to Hwy. 71, Hwy. 71 back to the Y in Oak Hill Car Show.




Just thought I would throw this out there to refresh some memories....................previous Hill Country Cruises

The 11th, huh? I'll try and make it out, but I'll be in a Celica if that's alright unless someone's willing to let me hitch a ride with them. if it was the 4th, then i definitely could go.

I've gotta see what I'm doing with my car. If either I can get the surgery done on my knee by the 11th or if it gets better enough that I can drive. Someone can hitch up and ride with me. Otherwise I'll probably have someone drive my car up there.

Anyone in the Houston Area that wants to meet up before the meet and cruise up let me know, I suppose I'll take the ball and get everyone together for that.

Wow, looks like a great run. I've run those roads many times with my second supra I had back when I was in college, back and forth from A&M and then later Austin to lake LBJ. Did you go on FM 1431 from marble falls to lakeway/cedar park at all? That road used to be REAL fun, but the last few years they have un-fun'd it a lot to prevent accidents.....

Too bad we dont' have any roads like that around houston...
