nohillgrish, though I’ve traveled through NW Arkansas and SE Oklahoma extensively in some breathtaking country, I don’t remember that much about the road numbers to be able to help you; however, once you get to Texas I do have a suggested route. US Hwy 281 offers a much, much more scenic North/South route into San Antonio than IH-35. IH-35 mainly follows the prairie down to San Antonio whereas US 281 goes through many scenic hills. Many, many travelers are currently trying to avoid IH-35 also because of the heavy traffic and construction slowdowns you would experience going that way. US 281 takes you down through a number of small Texas Hill Country towns. Much of it is two lane with broad shoulders. Other sections are four lane undivided highway and then once you near San Antonio, it becomes divided four lane. It is a good highway the whole route. US 281 becomes or transitions into IH 37 on the South Side of San Antonio and after this transition occurs, you are at the exit off IH 37 into the Braunig Lake RV park. Feel free to phone me should you wish to discuss this further or if I may help in any other way. You have my phone number.

The RV Park has just given us four more sites for the rally. As of tonight, we have three of those four sites open if anyone is interested in attending. I know this is last minute, but we have been turning folks away now for close to three weeks and have this last minute opportunity thanks to the Park finding us these four sites for which they apparently had cancellations from other RVers. If anyone is interested, contact Elaine Jackson via email elaine@gaj.com as soon as possible. Since it is so late in the game, I’m relatively sure she’ll agree to take your rally fees at the rally.

Steve, Doug & Extiger,
You guys are my new favorite weather folks. Whatever it takes, I'm going to get my trailer dug out of the ice this weekend and get it ready for the trip to "the promised land" of great weather, great people and warm hearts.
Gayland,
I'm taking a serious look at the Hwy 281 alternative you suggest. At first glance, it looks like that route will add 80 miles or so to the trip. However, the drive you describe is my kind of country and sounds like it may well be worth the extra miles.
CJ,
Will PM you about more specifics on our travel plans.
Thanks to all.

Hello everyone ... Well we are here and it is sunny and the sky is blue... VERY WINDY... all awnings up... cool today compared to yesterday when we arrived.. was 79 F... beautiful... the winds are to die down later tonight.. park is nice but sites are close. Nice facilities.. yes and dog owners will love it... small fenced in area to let dogs off lead... yes..makes for happier dogs to be able to run a bit.. Water pressure here is 70 PSI if anyone is interested.. see everyone here.. we are the only vintage here .. 3 other newer ones...

Definitely take the 281 route if at all possible. Coming so far, what's another 80 miles?

It'll be worth it, I promise. I live in Austin and I love Austin, but the hassles of taking I35 through downtown Austin just aren't worth it, unless you plan to stop off and hang out for a couple of days.

But, if you DO decide to take I35 through Austin, stay on the upper deck (far right lanes) of I35 though downtown Austin and you'll be able to see the State Capitol building as well as the campus for The University of Texas as you drive through the city.

Safe travels, and I'll be looking for you all on Saturday when I come down.

-Marcus

It's getting closer every day. I just wish I was able to make it down for the whole rally instead of the 2 days. Taco Cabana is calling my name!

I did not get any sort of confirmation from my initial Rally pmt. for................

"Vintage Rally will be at Braunig Lake RV Park just south of San Antonio from Feb 4 to Feb 8, 2009."

Did the pmt. cover Wednesday night (4 Feb, or does it begin on Thursday the 5th thru Sunday morning?)

Covers 4 nights; Wednesday through Saturday nights. Hence February 4 is the starting night. The rally ends Sunday morning, the 8th.
