It's all about knowing where to drive. There are endless hill country roads out here that almost never even have cars on them, never mind cops. I actually have a few Google Maps routes plotted out for drives around Austin. The first one is my North Austin route, and the only segments there to worry about cops are the top of Mt. Bonnell, 2222, and the segments of 1431 that are two lanes in each direction rather than one. But all 3 of these are awesome drives, and the points on the map are either good stopping points or good places to eat.

And for South Austinites, here's a fun one out to Fredericksburg and another one showing a VERY long (but very fun!) route to San Antonio:

Fredericksburg: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=U...1,3,4&t=m&z=11

San Antonio: https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=U...5,7,8&t=m&z=10

Posted on first page but duplicating here as well.

UPDATE:
Spoke with a manager at Kerby Lane, tried to get consecutive parking spots reserved and a reservation for breakfast, he was very polite but said that Saturday is just crazy busy and he really couldn't do anything. He urged us to still come lol. Oh well I tried. Meet is still on...

I'd be down to do a weekend drive of one of these routes after the meetup!

OP how will we find each other? Can you let us know what you'll be wearing or PM us your cell or something? Just in case we can't all park in the same area or don't arrive at exactly the same time.

Good question, lot of ppl to PM my number to though. I will let the hostess know so all anyone has to do is say you are with the M3 group.


I haven't decided what I want to wear, Saturday outfits have to be just right you know haha. Kidding of course. Blue shirt and jeans. Over 6' tall

I think we should reschedule for next weekend guys. 30% chance of rain this morning, and it's quite cloudy ATM. At this point, I won't be in attendance today.

Little late to cancel. 3 of us are here right now. We can still meet for food even if we don't do a drive until later. Please tell me others are coming?

Well, I got a little too drunk last night after it started pouring down rain.

No way I could have driven the M this morning. Tomorrow we can have a do over if it stays dry?

Over an hour's notice is too late? Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....given the weather, I figured more people would be watching the thread for an update :-\ I got up, checked the weather, posted, and went back to bed.

Given that, I would still like to meet up with you guys.
