We have a tour to Whitewright, TX scheduled for this Saturday. If you would like to participate (and possibly claim Father’s Day as an excuse), please let Raymond Mimick (firstname.lastname@example.org) know you will join us (to make sure we have everyone before we start).
Below is our latest news on the touring-front:
Generally, we have about 16 cars attending our tours as of June 2015. We welcome all to join us. With this many cars, we highly recommend purchasing a 40-channel CB radio (this is different than an FRS radio) to hear about road conditions and participate in group discussions (if this is your first time, this is not required to get a taste of the road). Locally, a number of us have used Bonnie & Clyde’s off Harry Hines in Dallas. The Midland radios have worked well and if you want to only receive announcements, the handheld version will work.
Please review the Touring Etiquette so we are all on the same page.
