HOUSTON/BR/NOLA MEET UPDATE:
So I drove through Lake Charles this past weekend going to Houston, and Lake Charles is the perfect spot. They have a beach front spot that have parks (for the kids or dogs), beach for fun in the sun, a nice area for picnics and/or bar-b-ques, and parking for over 50 cars. It about 1.75 hours from baton rouge (so about 2.75 hours from NOLA), and about 2.25 hours from Downtown Houston. The "pier"/boardwalk, military helicopter and airplane, and water will make for some awesome pics. As of now I have the place. Now just need a time. What would be a better month June or July? (sorry july 4th weekend is not an option, just b/c i'm sure everyone have their own plans and I'm sure beach front will be super packed)

I'm not sure who normally does the houston meet planning but if ya'll can have that person, or any of you want to get with me, and maybe we could meet in lake charles, have lunch or something and check out the spot and discuss set up information for the meet that'll be great. Let me know.

I got a letter in the mail from an attorney trying to start a class action lawsuit against BMW The Woodlands for apparently charging billable hours for work that was never performed. I have never had work done by them, but I thought it was kind of odd. I threw the letter away so I can't tell you what firm it was, but it was interesting.

Anybody recommend a good place to have JB4 installed, preferably north side? I'm pretty sure I'd screw it up on my own...

Also, I sent a request for the FB group!

I just put mine in according to their instructions online. If I were you, I would at least try that. I live in Spring, so if you really need help, I can show you what needs to be done.
