yahhh, whatever you do, don't roll down 1960 from North 45... unless you just really like 100 stoplights...

I prefer the Exxon on the Run on Huffmeister/290, since it is on the outbound side, and you don't have to pull across all the traffic exiting for 1960..

Just an FYI...
so 288 north to i-45 north, exit 290 then what?

p.s: i suck at teh directionz

Actually, 288 N to 45, then West on I-10 to 610/290, head NW on 290, out past the Beltway, 3rd exit is FM1960/Hwy 6, hang a left on 1960 and the Shell is on your right, just after you cross under 290.

About right; I live right off BW8 and 290, and it takes me a good 30 to get to 242... not speeding too bad...


heck, it takes me 45 or so from home to 105/149 Montgomery.. all back roads.

If coming from 45 N. I would take 2920. Anyone coming from that direction can meet up with me. I'll set up a meet spot and time in a bit.

Much quicker to take the Beltway.. only one tollbooth between 45 and 290.

Yes you are correct. I was thinking WRONGLY we were meeting at 362. Yes I would take the beltway and, um, whiteline it.
