After Thur AM mission, I went to the church for Friday's mission. If coming from the North, go to the 45 turn around & head back North. The driveway entranace is emmediately after the 35 on ramp. Drive to the West lower parking lot & start parking at the 1st spot nearest 35.
Route to the cemetary is expected to be ( L on Onion Creek Pwk, drive to dead end & turn R, over to FM. We will turn L to SA Rd. (1 block), Turn L on SA rd. to Right on Twin Creek. Cemetary in 1/4 mile down on the R. It's only about 3 miles total.
If we are done in time, those that want, can ride to GT for that mission. Based on today's mission, I feel we will have time.January 12, 2013 at 12:43 pm #3925keithlongacreModerator
