    Ok we got off to a slow start this morning. Switched vehicles for more comfort for the boys. Only left the house 30 min.behind what we wanted to.

    Passed through and got a small shot of the old Blanco county courthouse in Blanco, Tx.
    It has been a nasty day but good day to be in the car so the adventure begins.
    Question? Do you guys want me to post a link from Glymps so you can see where we are on a map?
    I am uploading a video to youtube for tge next post and will update as we go.

          When they first announced this event I seriously wanted to drive my car down there for the festivities...but from where I live I'd be traveling over either the 'grapevine' or through Tehachapi and I knew that at this time of year the weather is just too unpredictable over those passes. Trailering the '68 to the track was never an option...however it's not equipped to safely traverse the mountain passes in snow or rain. And whaddya know....storms are rolling in and highway closures are likely.
          Anyway...have a great time Stephen and keep the pics coming!

            We left out of Las Cruces around 8:00 and headed to Deming. Got to spend a few Hours with @wagonman and his wife. After a good time and lunch we headed to Arizona and our Hotel in Sonoita. After check in we headed out and got to visit with @JimKueneman and family to finish out the evening. Thank you all for the fun and hospitality.

                Will have more once I get to a working computer so these are off the phone. The boys got to sit and talk to Luck Costa, David Newbern and Cotton. The usual autographs. We got to meet up with Chris Birdsong, Luke and Olivia. Had a great time.
