Central TX Thanksgiving Get Together

As some of you know Starbright and WhiskeyMike just moved to Texas. This is their first Thanksgiving here and do not have any family in the area. As a fellow Jeeper I decided this is unacceptable and thought their Jeep family should welcome them with a get together/bbq/pot-luck on Saturday, Nov 30.

They have plenty of room and have agreed to host us in their new diggs in Bastrop. We will meet there on Saturday, Nov 30 time TBD. We need to get a head count, decide who is bringing what, etc.

If you live in (or will be in) central TX and can beg, borrow, or steal a ride to Bastrop on Saturday, post here or send me a PM and let's give them a proper to Texas!

We are all in baby! It will be myself, my wife and most likely the 2 kids. Let me know what we need to bring and a time. Looking forward to meeting Star and Mike, as well as all the others that come to this. 042, kudos to you for such a great idea! And of course, it will be cool to see all the different Rigs gathered together. Cheers, Joel

Awesome! I know that's a drive for you, I went to Longview a month or so ago. I bet we can get you a place to overnight that is not a day trip.

Glad to hear it.
I forgot to mention it in the original post bit this WILL be a family friendly event. Once we
get an approximate headcount we will work out who brings what.

Excellent news ETG!

So far it looks like we have a total of 12.
Starbright and WhiskeyMike are providing the space, a grill, hamburgers, hot dogs, and condiments (mayo, mustard, ketchup, relish).

That leaves the following essentials:
chicken?
burger/dog buns and fixins
plates, napkins, & plasticware
chips n dips
potato salad and/or slaw and/or baked beans
drinks and ice
deserts
other things I am forgetting...

Everyone let me know what you wanna bring and if there is something you want to add feel free.

Since I have a five hour drive it will be hard for me to bring hot or cold food items..I can bring both hamburger and hot dog buns..I will talk to star and find out how much...also will bring plates plastic wear and dessert..homemade pineapple upside down cake and brownies..how does that sound

Sounds like a feast! I'll bring drinks, ice, cups, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and jalapeno poppers.

If you think of something else let me know and I can pick it up.

I'll pick up some BBQ sauce and regular potato chips, too. We also have pickles and pickled jalapeños for burgers, too.

Hey gang...

If it works for you all, I'm thinking arrive between noon and one o'clock. Tex has the longest drive and she figures she will be here about that time.

Does that work for everyone?

Woohoo! Sounds GREAT, guys!

If you're sure you don't mind getting dirty Saturday, I would LOVE to get those fenders swapped! Mike picked up the rivet gun yesterday. Don't think there's any other specialized tools required! The Secret Squirrel sent me some tips and tricks to make the removal of the old ones easier.

I've got 25 burgers and 20 hot dogs, plus jeepers said he was bringing some chicken. Does that sound like enough meat for everyone?

Just got back in town. 042, you are correct,. We may have to run some laps around Star's property before we can go home. Looking forward to tomorrow.
