    Keep 'em coming..had a PM from a PM suggesting the Heart of Texas - Brady. Since there are a few here from the Lone Star State is only reason suggestion was made. If a big group wants to meet up anywhere in the region we should consider it. Am aware that by Sep/Oct some will have kiddos back in school and time could be limited for travel. If it looks like we could pull more than one off, there is NO reason not to! BTW, I think Palo Duro would be great fun.

    If we're talking Amarillo, we'd have to hit the Cadillac Ranch for a shootin' opportunity (hell, we could even produce "The APUG Cadillac Ranch Folio" and sell off copies with some of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer (I mention this, since it looks like the cars were all painted pink at one point as a tribute to breast cancer victims).

    There's also Route 66.

    I haven't been home in a long time, but I heard that the Cadillac ranch is now covered in graffiti. It made me very sad. I hope it's not true.

    I've never been. The two times I've been to Amarillo, I didn't have as good directions for finding the sculpture as on that website I linked to above.

    My understanding (from that same website) is that the owner encourages folks to leave their mark.

    Kevin,

    The cadillacs are right on I 40 about 10 miles west of town. They are on the left side of the hiway if you are headed west about 300 yards up in the pasture. There is a gate to allow everyone to walk up and touch or paint the cars.

    Gay: The grafitti is part of the "art".

    This wasn't going on when I lived there! ('till '89) Might be interesting.

    Just thought I'd bump this, since late Sept. is but 2 months away. And, I "know how we are".

    Also, "not quite so hot" would be a remarkable thing! :o
