Sounds like a plan to me.. I am in. (but you knew that..)
Driving times are as follows:
New Braunfels (location TBD) to Spring Branch
Total Est. Time: 48 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 24.31 miles
Stop in Spring Branch for restrooms, gas, snacks or drinks.
Spring Branch to Fischer, Tx
Total Est. Time: 32 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 29.96 miles
Fischer, TX through "The Devil's Backbone" to San Marcos, Tx
Total Est. Time: 42 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 22.31 miles
TOTAL TRIP DISTANCE: 76.58 miles
TOTAL TIME: 2 hours, 3 minutes, plus photos.
We are looking at roughly 35 minutes, or so for photos, so right at 3 hours with gas stops in SB and photos.
Grins is a good place to be, and depending on the drive home some have ahead of them (one hour here..) I should leave by 8:30-ish or 9..
Let's bank a couple of hours at Grins, JUST IN CASE we enjoy this whole "meet" thing (Its new to SC, so let's play it safe.. lol)
5 hours to be spent in all... from 9 is 4 or earlier leaving from NB.
Anyone have anything terribly wrong with this projected plan?
EDIT: I have room for one or a couple at our place for those coming from further away than myself or Texas Realtor. (I don't know what kind of spare room he has..
It's a twin bed, in a bedroom (Sister's room when she isn't out of town.. and if all else fails I have a pull out couch in the living room, that is a queen.)
Anyone else have room to spare?
Sounds like a plan. We could meet in the Wal-Mart parking lot in front of the Taco Bell at noon. The Walmart is in New Braunfels at I-35 and Walnut. From SA, exit Walnut. Turn Rt on Walnut and you'll see the Walmart/TB on your rt. From Austin, take the Walnut exit. Turn left under I-35 and you'll see it on the Rt.
