Seems like there is a few people on here already that are from the Central Texas area so thought I would start up a thread just for us in hopes to coordinate future meet ups and what not. A gas station by my house is like a hub for jeep meet ups (and other car meets) as they cruise up 281 to Marble Falls for trail riding events. Look forward to seeing who else is from the area!

Thank you for your service! I actually use to live over in Cibolo before tracking up to Spring Branch.

Seems like I eat over at Clear Springs Cafe once a month (well before all this crap started happening)! My niece is about to marry a Marine in flight training. They will be headed to Florida.

In New Braunfels,or actually a little west off Mission Valley. Grew up out on 46 near Bergheim, went to HS in SA at the mighty Central Catholic HS. Wife born and raised in NBTX.

Both of our families are the stereotypical Texas German Immigration wave; they settled in all of the small German towns around San Antonio: New Braunfels, Boerne, Hobson, etc. Partly why i take being an obnoxious Texan so seriously 😆

New Braunfels, Boerne, Kerrville, Helotes. I'd be more concerned with who's moved here that's made the growth. Soooo tired of people asking us where we moved from. 😡 It's inevitable, but unfortunate too.

Just wait... the planners got really far ahead with 130, give it another 5-10 and then everything between Austin and Luling will be filled in too. That will be the part that will really hurt my heart, in HS I and my buddies made a map of every dirt road between here and there. Now more than half of them are paved, and by that time they may be 4 lane roads!

Just curious who is the go to dealer for everyone? Not really sure here LOL. I have bought 2 Fords from Bluebonnet, 2 from Northside, and 1 from Red McComb.

I live on the far west side of SA. Glad to see there is a local group of us. I moved here from Washington State in 2013 and was a four wheeler up there, but haven't done any in TX yet. Started looking for local ORV places and I was surprised by how few and far between they are. I guess it's because all the land in TX is owned by someone. In Washington there's a lot of public land, which is open to everyone. At any rate, I hope to glean some great info from y'all before I get the Bronco.

I've bought a car from McCombs Ford West, a car from Mac Haiks Southway Ford and a truck from Northside. Wasn't pleased with any of the experiences. Even though I went thru internet sales for all three, they all tried to raise the price after I showed up. I feel like they are all in the dinosaur sales era, "what do you want the monthly payment to be?". Still used four square at McCombs even though the price of the car was prenegotiated. The truck was a special order and also prenegotiated price. On the day of pickup they told me it was going to be $1500 more than planned because they tinted the windows, put nitrogen in the tires and etched the VIN on the windows. All stuff I didn't ask for. I was highly irritated and made it known and they gave me an extra $1000 on my trade-in. I would have walked but I had sent emails to all local dealers and Northside was cheaper than everyone else for the build I wanted. Plus I had gotten a 2018 at the very end of sales for that FY and would have paid more for a '19 anyway.

I got my last truck from Jordan Ford in SA and it was a good experience. My salesman has since retired though. I think I may engage Bluebonnet Ford in New Braunfels as well. Bluebonnet may get the highest allotments they are a volume dealer.

I usually order and always insist on a no add on clause. If only in a letter from the dealer.

Bluebonnet, the Kahlig family are good people. The son was a year ahead of me in HS & we played football together. (Go Central!)

They do TONS for Catholic Schools in the SA area. And, I've never had a bad experience at any of their dealerships (Ford or otherwise). Both my dad and I have bought trucks from them (at different Kahlig dealers) and have nothing but good things to say.
