Just think Bud is less than two months away and I am getting very excited about the event.

Today, I confirmed my reservations and rechecked with the airline regarding ther pet policy. OK, get this on American Airlines, I can put both GOOSEMan and Max in one carrier and bring both dogs with me. It is weight and not the dog. We are talking one fee and not two fees.

Check List: airline tickets confirmed, Room reservation confirmed, rental car reservation confirmed and I get to bring two of my babies. GREAT DEAL.

Me too!! I talked Abe into letting me go, but I forgot we will need a security deposit for our new place about the same time. I just feel guilty taking $500 when we need it for something else so I've decided not to come afterall :sosad:

lotsadox
03-05-2008, 11:25 AM
We'll miss you, Bex, but I think you made the right decision. The deposit for the house is important and should come first. We'll take lots of pics. :hug99: :hug99:

I was gonna surpise everyone and show up until PJ's stoopid truck decided to blow the 4 wheel drive and eat up over a thousand dollars US AMERICAN ones at that for repairs:sosad: :pout: especially when said repairs started at $119....

I think the doGs are against me :(

I got some good news about Buda today. Since Bogart's back issues, I've been having a lot of trouble with the idea of leaving him with someone else while we're gone. I talked to my petsitter today and she was willing to keep him at her house, but she's fostering a dog that's kind of aggressive. She said that she'd keep him in her bedroom with her and take him out alone, but I was kind of uneasy about the idea anyway.

I didn't think that Jim would want to take more than 2 dogs with us. He can get kind of annoyed at having to deal with the dogs. Anyway, I told him about the situation and HE suggested that we bring Bogart with us. :cheer3: So Bogart is going to be making an appearance at Buda! And I'm feeling much better about going.

Photos! No excuses about not knowing where the cameras were....Andrea has a great new one. No excuses about not having the batteries charged....she has outlets!!!! That's gonna be lots and lots of puppers, and we want lots and lots of photos.

Watch the roads going there, lol. I drove over roads in Texas in the dark that were newly blacktopped with no lines down the middle. Dh says NEVER AGAIN!!!

you can make it to Austin in 8 hours?!? It takes my mother 12 to get to Hattisburg. Are you really 4 hours from Hattisburg?

lotsadox
03-10-2008, 11:42 PM
Mapquest says 8 hrs 44 min from Diamond Head to Austin and I've found that Mapquest times are long (or is it just that I drive fast :scratch:)

Mapquest also says that it's 9 hrs 34 min from Austin to Hattisburg. Mom must be making a lot of pit stops if it takes her 12 hours.

Otto'sMom
03-11-2008, 06:55 AM
I'm a good 2 hours from Hattiesburg, and 3 from Meridian. Gotta remember, I drive 80mph.

So for us newbies, explain what, & where is Buda?? We would like to go to a Dachshund get together, thinking about the one in Kent, Oh. In July cause it's only 4 hrs away.
Any others around???

So for us newbies, explain what, & where is Buda??

Buda is a smallish town in Texas just outside Austin where, every year, they hold Wiener Dog Races. Thousands of people come to watch and participate and almost all bring at least one dachshund. There are vendors selling all sorts of dachshund items, and it is made of awesome and filled with win. County fair type atmosphere, cause it's a county fair. We cheered on Peaches Weiner and had some fun meeting the people behind our online personas.

I get in really early on Friday, like noon... didn't really want to do that :rolleyes:, but it was the most convenient flight. Maybe I can find a mall to entertain myself in :woohoo: until everyone else shows up.

lotsadox
03-30-2008, 10:02 AM
Oooh, Kim, there's an outlet mall that's great about an hour south of Austin. :cheer3: :cheer3:

We're getting in 'sometime' on Friday. Last year Jim wanted to leave early so that we wouldn't have all the traffic of leaving at 6:00. I was ready to go at 2:00. He showed up at 5:00 :wtf2: So I have no idea when we'll get going. I guess we'll get there when we get there. :dunno:

Kim, we are going to the malls outlet malls (http://www.hill-country-visitor.com/San_Marcos_Texas/Outlet+Malls/) (yes MALLS!!) on Friday.

I have a U.S. Cell #, I will find it and PM you the information.

We might check into our hotel first and the head out shopping so the puppers can rest. Hopefully they allow early check-in.

If we leave Little Rock at 5:30 a.m. then we should get into Austin around 2:00 p.m. (with stops). Hopefully Rafi and I will both be able to nap (not while driving though :lol: ) If you want to meet at the hotel we can go to the malls together? We are renting a big SUV for our trip so there will be oodles of room.

lotsadox
03-30-2008, 10:54 AM
Yup, that's the one, Lisa. It's really fun. They have Nine West, Chicos, Banana Republic. Lots of great stores and great discounts. :thumbup:

03-30-2008, 11:00 AM
Oo Oo!!! I want to go shopping!!! Since Bex isn't coming and I don't have to take that Monday off, maybe I'll take Friday! (maybe just a half day so I don't get too behind...that would put me in Austin around 2)

You know, I was going to post about the weather...

It's typically sunny, hot, sometimes a little breezy.....but this is Texas folks! If you don't like the weather, wait 5 minutes, it'll change. So, those of you coming in from out of state. Yes, pack shorts and tank tops or t-shirts and be sure to bring your flip flops, but a light jacket and a pair of jeans wouldn't be a bad idea either.......we've had lows in the 40's and 50's this week. You just never know what the weather here will do.

Yeah, Tex, it has been unusually cool here this week, too. I drag a hoodie everywhere I go just because the restaurants and theatres (and even our Jim in the car) have the A/C super cold so I forget about telling other people to bring at least one long sleeved garment.
