Hey everyone,

 

Just wanted to let you know that I am headed (back) to Texas after 9 years in the Pacific Northwest. Moving to be closer to my mom, who is all alone down there. My wife and I will be living in the Austin area, and we are having our 2002 and our Chevy C10 p/u shipped to us. Looking forward to getting out and making some new friends!

Look forward to meeting you!  Out ATX 2002 and Classic BMW Cars & Coffee is the 3rd Saturday morning of each month.  We also tend to meet for lunch once a month.  Typically on a sandwich Thursday 2 weeks after our C&C.

Oh yeah, time line. We should be there around the first weekend of March. Our 2002 and C10 pickup are being delivered between March 12-14. So....if all goes well, we can be at the C&C for March. Lunches...another matter. Stupid job.

Ed, we will give it serious thought. My wife’s company isn’t exactly generous with the vacation time, and we already have a 10-day trip already planned. But maybe. Not ruling it out.

Terry Sayther's Spring 02berfest is at the end of March.  This years Spring 02berfest is scheduled for March 22nd -25th.  A caravan of 02s and various vintage BMW's will leave Terry's shop in South Austin on Thursday, March 25th and head out to Fredericksburg.  Friday will consist of taking in some sites, museums and lunch. I assume that Saturday will start with the group breakfast at the Hanger Diner followed with a sweet drive through the Hill Country, lunch and back to the hotel.  The Peach Tree Inn is "headquarters" and has rooms blocked.  Last Fall all blocked rooms were accounted for and 02rs had to use other hotels.  Some 02rs have been known to drive out early Saturday morning and make a day of it.

 

The Fall 02berfest is the last weekend of October and will have the same 3 day set up unless Terry decides to change it up.  Last Fall's event had a big showing and was a fantastic time!

That sounds like a good time for sure. Once again, if we can swing it, we will. First priority once we get there is finding a house, so weekends might be a little tight. Also, days off are at premium for my wife. Maybe we can make Saturday's fun. But we might have to wait until fall. Hopefully things will have settled down by then.

We are trying to stay in Round Rock or Pflugerville. Those are most convenient to my office and for heading down to SA to see my mom on a regular basis. We're considering Manor too, but....meh... 

 

Part of me thinks I should have just kept my house when I moved up here. But then it only had a tiny one car garage and was only 2 bedroom. But I could have sold it for a mint and we could have bought something else. Oh well....c'est la vie.
