Possible hangout in Houston

So it looks like Team Focalize is having a meet on the 17th of this month. I am planning on making a drive to the Houston area to drop off some parts that I just sold.

Does anyone want to make plans to drive to Houston and meet up with the Focalize members?

Would be cool if we could get some more people to drive over there and meet up.

It would be really cool to have a bunch of out of town guys show up, also while you are here you can see the LED work I do.

Ray it's outside of Austin

I want to say 2-3 hrs. It's not a horrible drive. I used to drive from Austin to Beaumont every weekend.

Oh wow ... that is a long drive.

I've driven from Houston to Beaumont and it's a long boring 1.5 hr ride.

But funny thing ... I love visiting Dallas to see fam.

Google maps puts Leander to Houston at about 2hours 58min. I always have this feeling Google maps averages their times based on 65 MPH so with that being said I think the drive would actually only take around 2hours 15min - 2hours 30min since the speed limit is 70 - 75 the entire way.

I seem to remember the drive from Austin to Houston was around the same as Houston to Beaumont
