DFW folks, I need directions, advice...

My son's in North Dallas doing his summer visitation with his mom. She was going to ship him back to Lubbock next week on a plane so he could go to his church camp here, but for whatever reason that fell through. She called me up tonight and wants me to drive out your way to pick him up and I havn't the foggiest idea how in the hell to get around that part of town.

All the driving direction pages suck to the address, on Rosemeade Parkway, coming in from Lubbock. If anybody can lend a hand in getting me through this jumble I'd appreciate it.


Also, if anyone needs anything brought back/taken that direction I'll have a little room. Will be in the Element, so no long stuff, but I'll help if I can. Going up on the 9th and coming back the same day.


thanks-

Wade

that's what I was wondering myself... had thought about going through the country north of dallas and then going south, but didn't know if it'd be worth it to avoid all the traffic or not. it'll be on a sunday, dunno if anything's going on that'd have the highways backed up...


argh... I get around Houston and Austin just fine. Picked up on Nashville pretty easy, and most other cities I figure out. For the life of me I can't stay found once I pass Arlington though.

Guess so... some apt complex at 4000 Rosemeade parkway...

I dunno what it's near to be honest. Seriously, after I go past the ballpark in Arlington, the rest of my time is spent wondering where the turn-off to Houston is.

It's in Carrollton. It would help if you knew a cross street.

right... that's the "northern" or "country" route. it does seem to make more sense to go this route this time. so, what's the toll on the Geo. Bush Turnpike?

the other way us Lubbock folk get to DFW is to hit i-20 outside sweetwater and then running through ftw and all the mess.

Carry $5. It won't cost that much; you'll have a manned toll booth where you need it for change.
