Default Houston NALM 2015

At some point, within this community, every year there is always big talk of our National Acura Legend Meet. Many questions come up within this discussion, from locations, cities, event plannings, attendees, members and even lodging. Sometimes its a debate between locations such as having it either on the West or the East coast, however 2015 was different. As time was closing in on making a 2015 decision, it seemed as if not many bids were submitted and other started questions if there would even be a NALM in 2015.

Then it seemed like it was a overnight decision was made and that Houston TX, was selected as the 2015 location. I myself began to think, "thats a perfect Central America location, for everyone to meet"

As time got closer to departure dates many start to either prepare for the road trip, learn to take a loss or fly. As bad as I wanted to drive Miss 87 to Houston, my new job and new position at the job did not seem quite fitting. So after talk of a few members and a few agreements I boarded a thursday flight to Houston. Now I missed Wednesday and Thursday, as I arrived late Thursday Night, with a courtesy chauffeur from Mr. TJ himself. After a whole day within airports I was ready for a bed and ready to hang with the legend weirdos.

So I wake up Friday morning and open up the hotel currents to the bright and warm Texas sunrise. As I am squinting from the brightness I look down outside the window and see a sight that would wake anyone of us up in high spirits.



As I get my gear ready and a few hand shake greetings with old and new friends, we all get ready to head out towards the next big event. Track Day









And so we all piled together and began the short road trip.

















Now I rode with TJ, which was the leader of the pack, so I did not get much photos of the drive. However when we pulled into the entrance area of the track we noticed some of the legend heads already up pre-staged and I started drooling.





















That was the first time I laid my eyes on Stella and I must say it looks 10x better in person. As all the drivers sign in I go make my rounds and scope out the track for positioning and spotted a few cool toys in the process.







Sure enough shortly after getting comfortable, Stella is the first to stage in the process and the rest start rolling in shortly after.

A few minutes later...

Around the corner comes....

Making me REALLY hate that I missed the second Texas NALM . . . again! I'm looking forward to hearing where it'll be for 2016. Great initial pics and I'm eager to see more! :
