Pappy, How far is Pearl from Rockport? We are planning to spend Jan.Through March down there and I would like to find a place to jam and play a little. I'm just learning and a good jam session is great for learning new stuff. Thanks

Crawdad, I live in the Houston area and spend quite a bit of time in Rockport--it's my favorite town in all of TX.
I could see how you could get to Pearl in 5 hours from Rockport, but even from Houston it is about 3 1/2 hours, so a 5 hour drive would be quite a feat, IMHO. I go to Austin and then west from Austin on 183, then north from Lampassas.
Here's a link to the website for the event:http://www.pearlbluegrass.com/
[Edit--BTW, I surfed in and check out the Mapquest link Chad posted--if you take that route, you are in for a real treat! It will take you through what is probably the most scenic part of Texas, the Texas Hill Country!! It would be a good choice!).]
Tell you what, Crawdad, I'm retiring at the end of Dec and will probably spend quite a bit of time in the Rockport area. I'll drop you an email and find some time to jam together. I stay in a little nature resort B & B in Lamar, right across Copano Bay to the north of Rockport, called The Habitat.
Hope to see you in Pearl in November [edit--well, DUUUH!!! I guess you aren't going to be there in Nov. since you won't be in TX till January]. Just so you know, we seem to have staked out a claim under a huge live oak tree just to the west of the side door to the school/community center. If it's raining, though, there are plenty of places to play inside and even covered play areas outside. You'll like it!!
