Lightbulb Jambo Convoy 2018

Alright boys and girls its time for Jambo again, figured id organize a convoy from the dallas area again.

Last year we left Thursday morning real early to get there in time, I plan on the same thing again. only difference is I'm leaving from Bedford this year instead of Prosper. no biggy if I haveto drive north a bit for the meetup though the convoy thing is fun I figure its worth it.

Early plan (subject to change)*

Meet 7:30 am may 3rd at Shell gas station (4400 Bass Pro Dr, Garland, TX 75043)... again this is subject to change to whatever works best for the group
On the road 7:45 am
Gas Stop in Gilmer 9:40
At the gate by 9:50

Lemme know where yall are comin from we'll figure it out cheers

Re: Jambo Convoy 2018

I'm in Arlington. Normally I go straight across I-20 and up to Gilmer.
However, Last time I went to Barnwell, we went west just north of Rockwall across Lake Tawakoni somewhere and in to Gilmer. it was a fun little back road trip.
Here's the track on Google Maps:

It's definitely not all interstate, lol
If you're in a hurry to get there, then it's not for you.
If you don't mind driving through a few towns and seeing some country, then it's perfect.
