Who's going to MidAmerica '02 Fest?

Who's going to MidAmerica '02 Fest? I don't have an '02 that's ready for the drive, but was half contemplating driving up Friday night (I'm in Dallas, so it's about a 6hr drive in a modern vehicle), hanging Saturday, then driving home that night.

I know there is a group leaving Dallas, they only pinged me yesterday with this same question.  No plans have been firmed up, but the Austin group has met up with the Houston and Dallas group for the last several years on the drive up on Thursday.  I'd expect 6-10 cars out of Texas, perhas more this year as the Austin group has grown a good bit.

 

If you only plan to drive up on Saturday, you could be a lone ranger...

I am leaving College Station Thursday morning. Hopefully meet up with others on their way north.

Thanks all.  I kinda expected to be a "lone ranger" in my drive to and fro, given that I wasn't going to participate in the Friday activities.  It sounds like there'll be a decent turn-out for this event, and hopefully worth the drive. Here's hoping my schedule aligns so I can make it.

 

BTW, for those who don't know me, I've had an '02 since '95.  I used to live in Houston, and was pretty active with the '02 folks there in the late '90s and early 2000s.  I then moved to Dallas, and started a group here.  About the same time Ed Fens stopped doing the TX '02 Fest, I bought my first house and had kids and, well, you know how that goes. . .

 

I don't recognize any of your names, but I might recognize your cars if they're from the area.  If I make it, I'll introduce myself.

Good deal, Josh.  Hope we see you in Eureka.  There's been 50 cars for the last few years, I can't imagine this even getting smaller. You'll see the gamut... rusty, smoking survivors to high-end S14 rockets; and everything in between.

I know many of us who have made the trip are texting one another, but for those who may be looking to join the crowd...

 

10 days out...do we have a plan yet?  

 

I hear that some folks want to make a leisurely drive of it and leave on Wednesday. The haul in one day typically has us arrive just after dark and it can make for a long day....

 

I enjoy the drive through east Texas and avoid IH35, but 35 is faster...

 

Thoughts?

After a text discussion with the famous JP Lips, the two of us decided to meet in Madisonville at 8:00 am Thursday morning. No location decided. I am going to suggest Buc-ee’s right off I-45. Clean bathrooms and cheap gas. Obviously, anyone is welcome to join us in the two car caravan.
