Re: Texas for X-mas - 2012

Let's kickstart a list. I haven't wheeled in a while and I think the FJ is starting to resent me.

I likely know 2 or 3 other local FJ guys who dont come on forums too much who might join. Ill find out for sure and see if they will be around. A couple of us have been trying to wheel for a few weekends.

The park manager finally admitted that the section of fence had already been damaged in the past, that they were dropping the claim against Daewism, and that he had gone overboard in his reactions. It did kind of seem like trying to apologize after already have been burned by it, but at least he ended up doing the right thing. I'm willing to give them another chance, but if I ever hear of him trying to pull anything like that again, I'll scratch Hidden Falls off my list for good.
Aha. Thanks for the update.

Thanks. I've added the list to the OP now too, and will try to continue updating it throughout the week...

We'll be down there for last week Dec., and first week Jan. Family stuff early-on for X-mas and all that. No solid plans yet for the rest of the time. |Would like to meet up with some of you if possible while we're down there.....maybe a lunch/drink meet-up if nothing else, but if we can get in an off-road side trip, that would be cool too.

Looks like our best bet for wheeling will be the weekend of the 29-30. Does anyone know if Northwest Park in Bridgeport will be open that weekend?

Wana meet for lunch (Vandy, if you come up north, I buy you lunch) or a drink?





Who's In

2. Patrick
3. OCR14a (& JammerGirl )
4. Tatem (AND TRD Tish)
5. Matt 1st run with the Tacoma


What time are we meeting?

Here's the link to their website (same as in the OP).

Officially, it's called 'Northwest OHV Park'. It's owned and operated by the city of Bridgeport.

The entrance to the property is on highway 101 here.

The place to pay to get into the OHV portion of the recreation area is here.

Google Maps says just under 4 hours from Austin (LINK).

I know....it's a bit of a trip. Sorry, man.
The lunch offer still stands if we can work it out up here in the DFW area while we're here. Of course, if we end up going down your way for some reason, we'll do that too.

Noon sounds great.

Remember cash. They don't take cards.
