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 and/or led portions of every Museum Caravan. All bring with them fond memories and new found friends. I have been the President of the Austin based Longhorn Corvette Club and a member of the SA based Texas Corvette Association.

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. I also moved out of Austin, selling my custom house with a Corvette swimming pool and now live in the Hill Country of Kerrville. I still have a building full of Pace Cars, and a new 2021 Rapid Blue convertible with my wife of 50 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 all the logistics and welcome all input and thoughts. I am also looking for a Co-Captain or two from major 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.

This route will start off in Kerrville on Tuesday 8/27/2024. 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. The last few caravans we gathered at Bale Cheverolet. We spend the night in Little Rock on Tuesday 8/27. The next day we continue our caravan journey to Bowing Green and arriving Wednesday late afternoon 8/28.

I am still working to confirm dates and also secure the hotels. I welcome any/all thoughts and comments
