Meet up at your favorite Starbuck's then:
Head out to the intersection of FM1187 and Hwy377 southwest of Benbrook.
Used to be called "Whisky Flats".
Jog east to turn North on FM1187 toward Aledo.
Pass thru Aledo and cross I-20. (Road becomes CR3325)
Continue North to Stop Sign (Intersection with FM1886)
Go North thru the intersection (30mph) on FM3325 (Church Rd)
Turn Right on FM730 toward Azle.
In Azle, continue straight under Hwy 199 and follow road around to the right as you pass the US Post Office.
Turn left at the Traffic light beside the Sonic to return to Northbound FM730.
Just before Boyd, turn Right on CR4668? (that's what Google shows)
Go East to the T intersection with FM718.
Left on FM718 to Hwy114.
Right on Hwy114 into Rhome.
Left on Business 287.
Follow it North (becomes US287 service road) to FM407.
Turn Right on FM 407 to Justin.
(watchout for the turns in Denton County. the pavement is rough)
Turn Left in Justin on Hwy156 and proceed North to Ponder.
"Texas Shadow" could meet up at CR3325 and FM1886. I think that is her fireworks stand.
Just a thought.............
that works for me.pacman1 said:This is exactly what I was looking for, Don, I just don't know those roads well enough. Thanks for the route.
Burlyville crew, do you still want to meet up at the Star$$? We can just scoot up 731 to Crowley, through the construction chaos, left at the Squidward-Wonder Memorial Intersection onto 1187 and meet up with more of the gang at the 377 intersection at what time??
so if you want something from starbucks, show up a little earlypacman1 said:From Burleson Star$$ to 1187/377 is about 20 minutes so how bout the Burlyville mafia and the rest of the JC contingent meets at Starbucks at 8:30, with stands up no later than 8:40?
Speaking of the mafia, where's the rest of the "family"?

I entered the route, starting in Joshua,in my 2006 Streets & Trips. It posted 2 hours from Joshua.pacman1 said:I'm thinking we should give ourselves at least 1.5 hours from Burleson using Don's route. What do you think, Chuck, Don?
Apparently, you could pick up Elzi @ her place. (After her coffee!)TexasShadow said:btw, I live on Church Rd.
tx-vfr said:looks like your the only official member of the mafia thats on the list.
I'm not quite sure whether I qualify for the mafia or not
there was a pic somewhere that contained me, kim, john, mark and the title read "the burleson mafia"
I'm so confused
Gilk51 said:OK, that was back on page 3 of this discussion!
You're slow responding!
Well! I WAS planning to join in but now I don't know...pacman1 said:Chuck, where are you planning on joining in (if at all)?
Gilk51 said:Well! I WAS planning to join in but now I don't know...
OK, I'm thinking 731 and 1187. Is that the bad intersection that got John & Kim? Not sure what time I should be there...
Is there is a good place to stop & wait at 377 and 1187? I don't remember anything on the east side...
pacman1 said:So Nathan, are you meeting me at the Starbucks or the rest of the group at 377/1187? If you're just heading to 377 I'll skip Starbucks too. No point in meeting myself there.
tx-vfr said:its 6 of one half-dozen of another. which ever would be easier for you. I"m game either way.
if we meet at starbucks, I doubt I'll get anything. its cheaper and nearly as good to just make it at home
