Who/What: We missed our Meet last year but it won't happen to us this year. The time has come for the fifth annual meeting of Texas Willys owners and enthusiasts.  Myself (Rick Stivers) of San Antonio and Dan Breaux of Houston will be hosting this event.  If you live in or around Texas, and would like to attend this Meet, feel free for you to join us.  Best of all, there is no registration fee or required sign up.  We aren't a club and no membership is required.  We are just a group of fine folks that appreciate the simplicity and character of these fine workhorse machines.  If you want to come, I would appreciate it if you let me know you are coming and how many you plan to bring. I try to supply free food for the event and this will give me an idea of how much to bring. In addition I will try to get some name tags together so we know who you are and which vehicle you belong to. Bring your Willys Jeeps, trucks, wagons, panel vans, Forward Controls and let's visit. If it won't run, trailer it to the event.  We just want the opportunity to meet with you and your Willys. This does not mean that you need a Willys to attend.  If you just want to drop by and visit, that will be fine too. My wife and I will be there. I'm not sure which of my Willys I'm bringing yet I have a 62 pickup that is now just a complete Chasis and drive train, and I have a 46 CJ2A that hasn't been touched since 1988. As always, this is a family event, so feel free to bring your spouses, children and pets.

Where: Dan Breaux's ranch in Burton TX.   "The place is about 1/2 way between Austin and Houston. We have 160 acres with a small house overlooking a lake. There are six ponds, with woods and fields, and a cattle herd for scenery. Make sure to bring fishing poles for the kids.  The easiest way to get there is to take 290 to Homeyer Mountain Road, about 2 mile east of Carmine, or 3 miles west of Burton. Turn north and go 3 miles to Hartstack road. Turn east (right) on Hartstack and go approx 1/3 of a mile to our middle gate, which is on the north side of the road. There are three barns with a cattle pen there and a sign that says Wolf Creek Ranch. We have a deck with picnic tables and we can barbecue in the yard.    Dan"
