    There are plugs there. You should bring your own extension cord and maybe a pig tail. Never mind that. I will bring plenty of both. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.

    Cool.  I was planning on bringing a cord and pigtail anyway.  Thanks Travis, I'll hook you up with some ammo and food, and I'll have plenty of Evan Williams black.

    I was thinking of donning my zebra pattern apron I picked up The Carnivore restaurant in Nairobi - but I'm starting to question the wisdom of that. Smokinsooner seems to have a better handle on the situation.

    I don't think there's been an accidental fatality at an egg fest in months.  Nothin' to worry bout, folks.  We're not bringing any firearms.  Sharp knives, plenty.  Watch out you don't piss of my SWMBO, she's 5'12", very savy and very protective.

    @nolaegghead was it you that said she would start drinking in Houston at just the thought of Village Idiot living nearby? The motto of Salado: Salado, where booze, guns, and knives live in harmony or not.

    @Mickey - no no, if she's gonna bring her A-game, she ain't drinkin'.  And she don't drink and drive and we're taking her SUV.  Plan is, drive from New Orleans to San Antonio (only reason we'd ever stop in Houston is to get gas or check out Ikea).  Stay in SA at mom's, then head up to Salado.

    do not drive I-35 though Austin if you can help it at all Thursday-Saturday. You will be adding at least an hour and most likely many hours to your trip. 

    Austin will be crippled by SXSW traffic- underestimate the ass-whip of this at your own peril. 

    Take the new 130 toll road (speed limit 85MPH) all the way up to Georgetown and it reconnects with I-35 like 20 minutes North of Salado. You can catch 130 in Seguin (30-40 minutes east of SA on I-10)  if your family lives on the east part of SA, or you can take 35N to Buda and hook up with it there. Traffic will already be snarled by Buda (pronounced "byooda") but probably not a day killer. You couldn't pay me enough to drive on I-35 next week at all. 

    IF you do go east, you could make an afternoon of it and hit all the BBQ joints in Lockhart and Lulling on the way up. Krutz and Smitty's in Lockhart, City market in Lulling. All known as "best in the world for TX BBQ" type places. It's worth the side trip for anyone coming up. They will be packed from SXSW traffic as well but they can move through the lines pretty quick. They are used to big crowds.



  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 11,692
    Good advice CT.  I'd love to hit the BBQ joints.  My mom lives a stone's throw from I-35 at the city limit around O'Conner Rd (NE side of town).

    Yeah, my brother sent me this a couple days ago:

    "Not sure what time of day y'all are coming up this way, but I can guarantee you that Austin traffic is going to suck - it always does, but SXSW will be wrapping up, so it will suck more than usual. To avoid endless frustration, I'd suggest taking the new 130 toll road from Seguin to Georgetown, unless you are going to San Marcos to pick up Marshall along the way, in which case you'd get on near Buda. Either way, it's not much of a detour, and you get to drive legally at 85 MPH. Cost will be about $12 for the whole way, less if you get on in Buda. Pay by mail. "

    he is a wise man. I would avoid it Sunday too. The place is still lousy with hipsters trying to get home. It's a zoo.



  • and it's Kruetz- (misspelled it above). It sounds like "Krites". I like City Market better than all of them but it's another 14 miles out of the way. You can do all the damage you want at Smitty's and Kruez in Lockhart and then head on up. Well worth tht stop just to say you've done it. The sausage and ribs are better than the brisket (they cook at 450 or something crazy like that). It's good, but I've had better.No sauce or forks allowed at Kreuz.

    Trying out my Canadian Bacon on you folks in Salado on Saturday. Using the Dizzy Pig recipe. Austin traffic is already bonkers because of SXSW. The airport was nuts Saturday when I flew home to Austin. I used 130 to drive to Round Rock, some folks love the 80 mph speed limit.

    As said before, travel I-35 through Austin at your own risk. I wouldn't do it if they were handing out gold dabloons. And I love gold dabloons.
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 11,692
    I've spent a good time in Austin and the traffic (on 35 especially) gets more effed up each year I'm there.  Seems like toll roads are picking up the slack there and in Houston.

    Thanks Centex for the toll advice. Very true. 130 is a must. Don't know what I was thinking.

    30 miles south of Murfreesboro they have "Bonnaroo". Hundred of thousand Stoners laying in their own urine...Woodstock type festival. I-24 gets backed up like a truck stop toilet.

    Pass by hell. Call me and stop in for a few mins. If late the party will be going an by then Travis, Centex, and Gary should be passed out with henapple pulling their wallets. henapple said he traveled to far not to make this pay off.

    I have no idea what time we are coming through. We got some tickets to the Spurs Mavs game Thursday night so we're driving down for that. Not sure when we'll get rolling on Friday and then I'm stuck working Saturday and Sunday. I'll call you if we have time to stop in. I got your number.

    My sweet wife just called and told me to take $300 dollars and buy myself something for my egg. I told her it's not that kinda fest. Things aren't for sale. It's not an eggfest per say...it's a drunk fest. Thanks honey, the $300 should cover my beer though.
