Welcome to the 2024 South Central Texas Caravan information and route site.  My name is Ralph Christ and I will be the Captain for this 2024 portion of the Caravan Route.  I have participated in and/or led portions of every Museum Caravan.  All of them have provided me with newfound friends and fond memories.  In the past, I was President of the Austin-based Longhorn Corvette Club and a member of the SA based Texas Corvette Association.  I’m retired and now reside in the Hill Country of Kerrville TX.

I am a lifetime Corvette Museum member and proud owner of several corvettes. Until recently I had a complete collection of Indy 500 Pace Cars from 1978 thru 2008. After retiring I sold a couple of them and gave one to our lovely daughter on her 50th birthday.  While living in Austin TX, we had a one-of-a-kind Corvette swimming pool built in our backyard. I still have a garage full of Pace Cars, and a new 2021 Rapid Blue convertible with my wife of 51 years, and I will drive in the Caravan.


This portion of the Caravan will be picking up South Central TX clubs and others interested in joining us as we travel up I-35 to hook up with the Northern TX route in the Dallas area.

From there, like in the past, we will travel to Little Rock, AR for a stay-over. The following day we will make the remainder of the trip to the Bowling Green area.

I am still working out some logistics details and welcome all input and thoughts. I am also looking for assistants from major TX clubs if interested. I expect this route to cover/handle the following major clubs/cities in TX. Corpus Christi, Laredo, San Antonio, Austin, Killeen, and Waco before joining up with the North TX Route in the Dallas area.

Day 1, Wednesday  8/28/2024:

This route will start off in Kerrville. From there we will head over to I-35 north of SanAntonio to a Buc-ee’s (2760 I-35, New Braunfels)  Next stop will be north of Austin to the Buc-ee’s in Temple.  Both have easy access and plenty of room, fuel, food for everyone.. Next we will travel to Dallas to meet up with the Dallas organized caravan. (TBD) If like past years it was at a local Cheverolet dealership.   After lunch we continue travels to Little Rock, AR..  Once their we will gather at Bale Chevrolet for food, t-shirt, and the making new friends.   We spend the night in Little Rock, AR close to Bale Chevrolet.

Day 2, Thursday  8/29/2024:

After breakfast, we will gather at Bale Chevrolet and continue our caravan journey to Bowing Green, arriving late afternoon.
