Blogmeet Info

As many of you know, there's going to be a BIG meet up in Austin at the end of April. Here's the latest info on the adventure that will be. (FYI, if you're planning on making the trip to Austin, make sure to leave a comment with a link at the official site- they'll get you on the list, IF blogspot cooperates).

Friday evening, festivities begin with a road trip to the Salt Lick. I haven't been there, but I hear the food is quite yum. (Rachael Ray went there when she visited Austin for her "$40 a Day" show on the Food network.) They are in a dry county, but it is BYOB (beer only), and they only take CASH. Keep that in mind. (I'll let everyone know what time when I find out.)

Saturday morning starts off with a trip to the gun range. I need some info from those who are thinking about going on this little field trip. We have 3 range options- 2 indoor ranges (one north of Austin, one south... same owner) and one outdoor range (about 45 minutes from downtown Austin). The indoor ranges open at 9am, cost $12 to shoot, with $7.50 rentals (you must use their ammunition), and have handgun and rifle lanes. The outdoor range is a little more pricey ($20 with $12 rentals plus ammunition), open at 10am, have rifle (50, 100 and 200 yard) and handgun (7, 15 and 25 yard) ranges, and shotgun and clay areas. (One "upside" to the outdoor range is that we practically have to drive past the house, so I might be persuaded to fire up the grill for lunch- if everyone pitches in for the munchies.)

Saturday afternoon, one possibility is Eeyore's birthday party.

Saturday evening, we may hang out at the hotel and just chill and visit. Or... we might head downtown and hang out on the patio of one of several bar/restaurants.

Sunday morning, I've heard rumblings about finding a breakfast buffet... more on that when I find out more...

A couple of notes... the plans that we come up with are just suggestions... feel free to come and go as you please. I'm going to try to find a sitter for any little critters that may stow away in luggage... but I need a count for that...

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering why there are signs, bumper stickers, t-shirts that say "Keep Austin Weird"... uh... um... click here... that's Leslie Cochran ... probably not safe for work in some instances... just not right in all instances. We may not have the most moonbats, or even the craziest... but we have our special ones... (and no, I'm not entirely sure I'm proud of that.)
