Default Central Texas Volvo Get-together (oct. 4, 2014)

Any Texas peeps planning on attending the meet Oct 4th in Temple? I actually think I will be making this one. Any South Texas folks interested in meeting up for the drive there?

Oh yeah? Which one?



Edit: there is no way anyone not of Jewish faith to know was the day of Atonement since it changes every year...

Besides you can totally fast and pray in your volvo all the way down to Temple.

Yeah, I pretty much have to be there.

It's the one day out of 365 that I get to mingle with people that drive the same car as me. You guys act like Volvo meets in Texas happen every weekend.

yom kippur bro. Didn't hit me till my mom said something when I was discussing about when and where my dad needed to be to pick him up for this. I had plans to get a ton of camera gear from the production office.

Hopefully next time.

I totally thought about fasting down the there and back but temptation gets me every time.

I'm so torn. This is the same weekend as autocross. I'm currently points leader in F-Street Prepared. Second place is only .4 seconds behind me and he has taken second place the last two events. If I miss and get no points and he takes 1st place I may drop out of the lead. Decisions decisions.

Decisions decisions.

I will fly out to Arizona and high tail it back to Houston hopefully without incident. If so then count me in.
