Event planned by
Josh & Kathryn Butts

Get your engines ready for a GREAT weekend of driving in the Texas hill country!

For the 2015 Annual Utopia Weekend event, we'll return to Kerrville as our home base for the weekend. If you've never had the pleasure of driving these roads west of San Antonio, I can tell you they are the best you'll find in Texas.

We'd be happy to have you join us for any or all parts of the weekend! If this will be your first event with the club, you could not have picked a better one. If you're a seasoned veteran, Kathryn and I are looking forward to seeing you again soon!


As far as accommodations go, any hotel in Kerrville will work fine. I've found some pretty decent deals using Hotels.com's pre-pay option combined with online coupon codes.

Friday, October 16th:

We have a dinner reservation at The Lakehouse (1655 Junction Hwy, Kerrville) from 6:30pm - 8pm. If your travel plans allow for it, please join us for a casual dinner. The restaurant is planning to be flexible with us and is expecting that not everyone will arrive exactly at the same time, so if you don’t arrive in town till a little later, you can still drop by and hang out and get a bite to eat. (get directions)


Saturday, October 17th:

We'll meet at the Walmart at 1216 Junction Hwy in Kerrville around 8am.
Don't worry, there's a Starbucks right across the street. I estimate we'll depart around 8:30am.

From there we will travel west along the river towards RM 335 and RM 337. Lunch will be around noon in Leakey at The Friend's Grill. After lunch we'll proceed back to Kerrville via RM 336. I estimate we'll arrive back in Kerrville around 3:30pm.

We have a dinner reservation at Cowboy Steakhouse in Kerrville at 7pm and we'd love for you'd to join us.

If you're looking for something a little more low-key, there are plenty of fast food and casual dining restaurants within 5 miles of most of the hotels in the area.

Sunday, October 18th:

We'll meet at the River Hills Mall at 200 Sidney Baker St South in Kerrville at 8am, planning to depart around 8:30am.

We'll take TX 16 south towards Medina and then pick up the remainder of RM 337 west towards Vanderpool and Leakey.

After a pit stop in Leakey, we'll head back to Kerrville for lunch at Billy Gene's restaurant. After lunch you have quick access to TX 16 and I-10 to return to Austin and San Antonio respectively.


For both days, plan to arrive "Full, Full and Empty". That is, full tank of gas, full stomach, and empty bladder.

We will be using radios over the course of the weekend, so if you have a set of FRS/GMRS radios, bring them along.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me, josh@joshbutts.com.
