The Legend Is True !! Sat.Jan.22-FLORENCE/Vic's Grocery & World Famous Deli.
Posted by TopDown on 2011/1/23 17:10:00 (666 reads)

*Here's a good example of how visiting a small (really small) town makes a great day trip. Only Jeremy Tome, who grew up nearby Georgetown would have known that Vic's Grocery & World Famous (in Florence) Deli even existed. Certainly not us yuppie city slickers; I could not have dreamed this one up.

*Weather was great for January w/clear blue skies in the upper 60's & way better than 100 degrees in the good 'ol summer time. No seasonal excuses for sleep-ins or no-shows with tops & heaters here. The few, the proud, five cars & 7 people turned out. RXs, Miatas, Zs & S2Ks put tops down & sun roofs open.

*Down the road a ways off RR1431, infamous Cow Creek Rd, with it's ancient cattle crossings & pot holes recently repaired & resurfaced nicely, now felt much like Lime Creek Rd. Little known routes to Oatmeal, Bertram, Oahkalla, Maxdale (location of a haunted cemetery & hostile local villagers) & Ding Dong (a real town) took us to Florence by the really back way.

*Dowtown Florence, all 1 block of it, still had old original buildings, some a little spiffed up, but intact. The sign for Vic's Grocery was as old as the building, but we homed in having arrived hungry in anticipation. This was a for real, very rare, small town grocery, loaded to the ceiling with everything @reasonable prices, & not a convenience store. The deli/bakery was in the very back where we lined up. The 12" sandwiches were more like 16-18", bread fresh out of the oven & loaded. My large 1/2 half was only $3 + change & very tasty. **The Legend of Vic's Deli is true !!**

*After lunch Jeremy led the hard core drivers on an Andice/Jarrell never driven loop ending somewhere between Liberty Hill & Georgetown, then home. Who knew there were so many good roads NE of Austin ?? Thanks to Jeremy Tome for planning/leading this new route to his favorite area.

Who else has some hidden jewel in their memory to share with us ??

Sat.Dec.4, 2010-First Ever CASUAL TECH DAY-Big Success !!
Posted by TopDown on 2010/12/14 18:00:00 (587 reads)

*Who would have believed that our first ever *Casual Tech Day* would go over so well ?? 12 showed, some old, some new & even a visitor from the G35 group. Jerry Adair's 1400'sq. home shop was all cleaned up & ready for some serious rotary issues.
*The main theme is to test the basic condition of engines & showcase repair steps in sequence at future sessions. This began with a compression testing demo, the indicator of apex seal condition, the main point of failure for rotaries. We tested 1 dead & 1 running with low readings, indicating a possible rebuild in his future. #!+@%&x*!! Oh well, ...start saving !!
*Other lesser info. was exchanged on batteries, maintainers, electrics, switches, cat.converters, inspection, advantages/pitfalls of modifications, ...and on. There was also some buying/bartering of seats, suspension, and engine parts from Jerry's parts cars & inventory.
*Lunch provided by the club was just sandwiches, potato salad & drinks. A Texan without an outdoor grill ?? But, Jerry has promised to get one & graduate us to the good stuff next time.
*Originally 11am-3pm+, the sun set with Jerry & Jeremy still under the hood until near midnight, zzzzzzzzzzzz. NEXT CASUAL TECH DAY is 11am Sat.Jan.29; check the *Upcoming Events* column. Thanks to Jerry Adair, TexasRxs Tech Advisor & those who came for the day.

Sat.Dec.11-5th Annual Grande Xmas lights Tour-2010
Posted by TopDown on 2010/12/14 17:20:00 (667 reads)

*It was perfect weather for this year's drive with 70's in the day & seasonably cold that evening. A total of 10 cars & 13 people came all or part way including RXs, Miatas, a Mustang & a Toyota pickup ?? As we say, "All cars & drivers welcome !!"
*This trip skipped shopping in Fredericksburg & we left in the afternoon for Johnson City. Favorite backroads through Hamiliton Pool & good 'ol CR 962/Spur 301 with it's dips, cattleguards & loose livestock made the drive "interesting". Randall raised his air suspension to max & Jerry (pickup) made the hairpins, ....mostly. All arrived smiling & without incident.
*The Silver K Cafe had our table reserved & ready. The menu was expanded for holiday dining & everything was rated excellent for service, food, drinks & desserts. Thanks to Kay Pratt-owner for hosting us every year.
*Lingering over the wonderful dinner & conversation put us well into evening for the walk around Johnson City's World Famous In Texas Xmas Lights Extravaganza. New displays in City Park, the completely light-covered court house square and Perdernales Electric Coop's absolutely drenched-to-the-inch & branch giant oak trees (see the Forum photo), grounds & annex buildings were jaw dropping. Even previous visitors were still awed by the biggest display in the Hill Country.
*After the whole tour, hot chocolate (thanks Jerry) & many photos, 290E was the deer-safe way home around 8pm+. All of us Xmas junkies were happy, ....but ready for more next year. I sent Randall Edward's (Webmaster) email out for pics to the Forum; please forward yours.
*Great fun, good turnout, nice roads & oooh-aaah lights. Thanks for coming.
