for instance..

there are 4 of us that are in Abilene.. I know thats not a lot but here are the advantages to using a small town:

cheaper hotel prices
less patroled roads
LESS traffic
Home cooked food
Cheaper dragway

there is a place to go kart, puttput and bowl

there are some good roads around Abilene..

plus out in the State Park.. we could Camp for 8bucks and have a 2day cookout

Well I haven't known any of us to need hotel rooms. We usually just caravan up there and back the same day. I'm all about cheaper, and I been wanting to have a event a drag strip. Always looking for ways to break my car lol

Sounds like someone in Abilene needs to put some specifics together...

As they say 'run it up the flag pole'.

I am all for bringing the scene to a small town. Change of scenery. Even if all there is to do down there is eat and cruise.

Well, like Paul stated, we haven't done a 2 day trip on the RoundUps before.

But considering the distance to Abilene ... hmm.

I should be okay to go with enough planning ahead. It would be better for me to do it in 1 day. How ever, it would take about 12 hours of driving just to go there and back.
