Ok, first I want to let everyone know that we have five cars for the Plano Live Green event and we are allowed SIX! Nancy scored us 6 cars within 3 spots! So cool beans! Now, on to my big surprise!
I was having a hard time finding a new place to do the meet and greet and right when I was going to give up and go back to the Saucer, I got an email from Kelly Miller of East Texas Smart Club. He is trying to jump start his group and has asked us to help.
I know many of you want to go on a drive, and this sounds like a good one. Below is his itinerary, with photos of the area.
10:30am – Meet at North end of Broadway Square Mall parking lot (side closest to the loop)
11:30am – Drive to Edom, TX for lunch at The Shed Restaurant
12:00 arive at The Shed, eat
1:00 pm- Senic drive to Frankston, TX; Pit Stop for 10-20 min
1:30 pm – Scenic drive to Love’s Lookout near Jacksonville, Texas for photos
2:00 Arrive at Love’s Lookout
Leave from Love’s Lookout to head back to respective homes.
The Shed is a local mom/pop restaurant that has great food and EXCELLENT
pies and desserts.
Love’s Lookout is a scenic overlook where you can see for many miles. Click here for more info
(Dallas folks can head straight up 175 to head back to Dallas and it will turn into 75 South (central expy) from Jacksonville.)
I hope you all think this would be a neat change to our normal met and greet. It is a bit of a drive just to get out there, but I think it will be a fun drive to do this time of year, before it gets TOO hot! Below are maps to the area, and the route. I suggest we meet at the smart Center of Dallas. I will talk to them about buying a few dozen bagels or doughnuts. We should meet no later than 8am, leave no later than 8:30am. Email me if you would like to participate in this event/meet and greet. We will help answer the usual questions, and some from our fellow owners. Below are two maps: one is the distance form SCD to Tyler, the other is of the route. If you have any questions, please let me know.
