The Lonestar Round Up Austin, TX 3/07

April 11, 2007

I got the chance to visit Austin, Texas. Wow, what a cool city. Music on every corner and the people there were super nice. We attended the”Lonestar Roundup”, a hot rod get together, which consisted of an art opening and a car show. I have a love for old cars, probably because I was forced to keep my cars running when I was younger and for some reason(probably because they were cheap to buy) I always drove cars made in the 60’s. Car culture is also such a creative and fascinating sub culture of Americana. The weather was great and we had a excellent time. It was good to get away. Sometimes it is necessary to step away from the canvases for awhile. Oh and the food was amazing. I love Mexican food! Montana sucks for Mexican Food. Check it out!

Well besides the sun burn my wife and I suffered, because of our pale Montana winter skin, the day was fun in the sun!
