Houston Area Skoolies! How'zabout a Meet n' Greet?

Howdy All --- we now have a few new Skoolies in the area and they would like to chat with other like (warp) minded individuals.

How about another gathering at REHAB Bar on the Bayou? Seemed to work fine last time.

Hows does Saturday the 14th sound. Say around 4pm?

Lemme know what you think.

Meet n Greet

My wife and I just started our Skoolie build, and located here in Richmond, Texas. We have the inside down to the ribs, and starting to figure out this wiring. We will try and make it to the meet n greet.

Now, when you say "Down to the ribs", do you include the BBQ sauce?

I'm always up for a good "meet and drink." I will be there, unless I get called out of town. Looking forward to seeing if the tree has new roots yet.

Plenty of on street (free) parking outside my art studio. I will PM the address, you can Google and see if it will work for you. But, knowing you prefer hotels, there are plenty near downtown.

Uh...it's in the 40's & low 50's today.

But...being Houston, it could well be in the 90's within a few hours.

Be prepared for anything.

We have to routinely switch from Heater to A/C here this time of year.

"Layering" is a very popular look. Parka over a Hawaiian shirt.

As (my) luck would have it, I will be traveling this weekend. I hate to miss a gathering, and hope that many of you can make it. Rehab is a cool little bar, and the outdoor area is great. I guess I'll just have to wait till Tango either gets the new Rehab project dedicated, or completes the '46.
Pictures of anyone's project will be welcomed.
Have a great time (as if I had to ask)

One more note for any out of towners planning on coming in for the Skoolie Meet N' Greet at REHAB Bar on the Bayou...

This Saturday will also feature the famous ArtCar Parade in downtown Houston! Total motorized madness and mechanical wizardry! Below is a link for details...
