I haven't been active on the forum for the last couple years due to work, but I'm expecting that to ease up soon and I'd be interested in making the trip to the other side of the Metroplex for a meet. The poll is closed so I can't vote, but March 21 or April 4 would be my preferences.

I'd also suggest that anyone making a trip to Fort Worth plan on a stop at either location of Heim Barbecue for some of the best barbecue in Texas. Their house specialty is bacon burnt ends. Get them. Enjoy the highest form to which pork can aspire. Their brisket, ribs, and sausage are also top-notch, but did I mention the bacon burnt ends?

Another site that must be seen....Buc'ees. Located at exit 498 off of I-20 at Terrall, this is a gas station on steroids! 100 gas pumps on their fuel "island". Their store is is huge, offering foods of different types, 2 different flavors of slushies...at the end of each aisle....souvenirs, ice chests, BBQ tools & spices......this place is unreal!

Buc'ees is a TX original, but now has a new location on I-10 in Alabama at the new Foley Beach expressway exit.
There's another one off of 35W in North Fort Worth, so folks interested in clinching 35W and 35E could make a stop there as well.

Since the poll didn't get much traffic and folks have been kinda all over the place, I'm gonna change course a bit and throw together a minisite with a self-guided version of the itinerary. Once it's ready, I'll re-pitch the meet and see what kind of reception it gets.

Is this meet still on the table as a possibility for March or April of 2020? We haven't heard anything about it in a while and I'm getting the feeling that it might fall through. If it's looking like this meet won't happen, I'd like to remove it from the list I started of road meet possibilities for 2020.

Hello davmillar...

Any updates on this meet idea? My wife wants to go so we can eat at a place called Papadeaux's (sp?). So she wants to use the meet as a reason to go here (perhaps Sunday after the meet before we go home).

If that is the case, I'm considering this null and void.  Maybe give it a month or two but my priority has now shifted.

Hello all. Apologies for not responding to those last few replies -- my day job got hectic then and it slipped my mind.

I'm still open to hosting this meet in the future, but with the COVID pandemic mucking up everyone's schedules, I wouldn't dream of trying to schedule anything until there's a vaccine and all the other pending meets settle.

Likely for the best. Ft Worth isn't going anywhere ;)
