At XA30 on may/fri/03, I received standard WX briefing from columbia FSS for ver direct aus with proposed departure time of XG00Z. On NOTAMS, the briefer asked if I was familiar with P49. I stated that I was, but that the president was 'not in town this week.' briefer noted an unlit tower near aus, but made no mention of P49 being in its 'expanded' status. Upon landing at aus, I was greeted with a phone call from mr X at the waco FAA that relayed my busting the expanded tfr P49 by 'a mi or two' along its eastern edge. He asked if I had received my NOTAMS. I explained that the briefer had not disclosed an 'expanded P49' and I had consequently flown a direct, GPS, autoplt route to aus. I told him I was sorry and that I would amend my future routing to avoid a repeat incursion.
