Houston meet-up
 
Seems to be a few newbies into the location so thought it was a good time to try and arrange another British Expats meet up. Anyone interested?

So..... Who organises these meet ups?!

I would be happy to do so once I arrive :D though I would perhaps need help in choosing a location!

I'm getting an awful feeling of deja vi here.....Emma......based on "recent" feeble efforts (mine included), May 1st next year is probably pushing it!!! Maybe some of the newcomers will have more luck/stamina.....hope so! Count me in.

Brazos Bend Park, before it gets too hot. Everyone brings food and drink, there are pits to BBQ on and the kids can run around chasing the Alligators.

Sorted...see ya all there:D

Topical thread - that storm has been chasing me the last few hours, and I just pulled off I-10 near Katy for some breakfast, and to avoid it, and the rush hour nutters who have't noticed there's a bit of standing water on the roads.....driving tanks really does give the locals here a different view on road safety;)

On the good news side, if you're east of Katy, it looks like the storm is petering out a bit, although it still brought a bit of lightning and probably an inch or so of rain

But I digress....I'm just passing thru this time, but will be back for a few weeks in May - would be good to join a meetup if transient tramps are allowed? Always enjoy a night out in Houston.

I live out towards Cypress and it's only just starting to thin out - we lost power for a while during the night.
The sad thing about the locals driving tanks is that because a few idiots clearly didn't pick up any understanding of physics at school, if you drive anything less you feel unsafe on the roads. One of the reasons we just bought an SUV was so that we felt safer on the roads next to all the jacked up trucks doing 80 in the rain.

Anyway :focus: May would work for us. We're in the Barker/290 area but don't mind travelling somewhere central to the majority of peeps.

Re: Houston meet-up
 
That's the same reason I want a truck when I get there :D

Anyhooo...

Ok, would peeps prefer a Sat or Sunday?

Yes, let's make it somewhere fairly central, hopefully then it's equal distance for everyone to travel. Let's fix a date, then we can sort out a location..
