have fun man. Just watch out for the piggy's on the way. They are gonna be cracking down on memorial day weekend.


Also, if you want another stretch, FM 1826 is fun to drive on. Lots of long sweeping curves and rolling hills. Not as tight as LCR but still fun.
My Buddy got married at this chapel http://www.mapquest.com/maps?city=Au...eocode=ADDRESS and it was fun getting there. lol

Here is Lime Creek Road linky I likt to run to/from Bullick Hollow Road & 620 intersection

Also the drive on 1431 out to Marble Falls and Back is nice or for the shortened version go to Lago Vista and back. From Lime Creek road take Anderson Mill Road to 1431 and take a left. These spots will have some traffic and cops in the late afternoon/evening to catch drunks leaving the lake so run in the morning if you can.

I live in the area and will join you on a morning run. I've only been out a few times in the Hyundai so far pm me for my info.

Also post in the Austin thread I'm sure there will be some meets this weekend too.

There are also a couple of car meets on Saturday evening/night. PM Me for locations.

Not sure if I'll be out or not(I work most weekends), but there should be a good amount of folks now that it's warming up. Hell, if I have to I may just show up in a limo. Wouldn't be the first time, lol.

Not sure what Your plans for the weekend are, but We may be able to arrange a cruise on Sunday, maybe just a couple folks but still.
