Attention Colorado Freepers! Jim Robinson is coming to CO
self | 05/19/04 | Tom Buchanan

Posted on 05/19/2004 4:03:19 PM PDT by fivetoes

Jim Robinson is coming to Colorado! Lets do lunch!

Greetings,
As you may know Jim Robinson and family will be doing a tour of many states this month. They will be in Ft. Collins, Colorado on May 28th and 29th. Their plans are to arrive late in the evening on the 28th and they will be leaving on Saturday afternoon following a Freep of the lefties and a late lunch.

A few of us have been trying to decide where to go for lunch. We would like to have as many Freepers from Colorado and Southern Wyoming join us for lunch.

Here a a couple of choices

1. Since the Freep will be in Ft. Collins we could also do lunch in Ft Collins. We discussed Washington's in Old Town.

2. We Freep in Ft. Collins and do lunch somewhere along I-25 since this will be on their way to Burlington where they will spend Saturady night. We could possibly get the meeting room at Johnson's Corner, just north of the Berthoud exit. Maybe there is a nice restaurant near the Longmont exit at Del Camino.

We need to make a decision soon, so please let us know if you could do the FReep at Noon and lunch afterward or if you can just do one of the agenda items.

Also, feel free to post alternative suggestions for lunch.

Regards,
Tom Buchanan

Related subject-
How much advance notice will there be of any particular leg of the trip so those of us not in a designated city could consider plans to meet up with the FR tour bus at the closest juncture?
I don't have time or the means to make last minute journeys, but I would like to get a chance to meet Mr. R and any other FReepers if at all possible.
Thanks

My own preference would be Johnson's Corner or Del Camino(abit quieter and easier to get to.) over Washington's.

2) works out best for us.

How about the Craker Barrel near the outlet mall in Loveland? Right off I-25.

On the way home, we plan to spend at least one night in Las Cruces, New Mexico, and then it'll be on through Phoenix and up to Lake Havasu City where we'll spend the last night of our tour.

I've seen bus groups there in the past. I called them up, they don't take reservations as such, but on the day of the visit, you can call them ahead of time and get your name on a list, if they are running a list.

The more I think about it, the better I like the idea of Johnson's corner. It is a well known landmark on I-25, is closer to the Denver metro than Fort Collins, they have room for us, and they have world famous cinnimon rolls. Washington's in Fort Collins has lousy parking, especially for Jim's tour bus. The Cracker Barrel is also a fine idea. I like that choice too! I guess we will have to have an online vote, LOL!

We will be FReeping in Fort Collins at the corner of Lemay and Drake, officially starting at noon. Many of us get there by 11:30 so early birds are welcome to start rallying. The leftists usually show up about ten after. They are a sorry looking bunch of old hippies and intellectual types. The public REALLY likes our Support Our Troops Rally and the honking really lifts our spirits.

If any of you FReepers out there want directions to the FReep, let me know.
All the Best

Howdy. Unfortunately, there probably won't be a whole lot of advance notice of stops between hotels. We've firmed up the first half of the trip and will probably post that in a couple days, but the second half is not firmed up yet other than the places we'd like to stay and a guess of when we might be there. Some of the trips between cities are going to be all day drives and we'll probably only be making pit stops and lunch. Almost impossible to say in advance where we'll be stopping for lunch. By the way, we'll be traveing in our minivan. No tour bus involved.

Yup. We'll be taking I10 from Las Cruces across New Mexico through Tucson and Phoenix to Quartzsite and then turn north and head up to Lake Havasu City. The trip from Las Cruces to Lake Havasu City is approx 600 miles and is an all day drive. We could probably stop in Phoenix for dinner.

WHOA! I've never been to a Cracker Barrel before. But wasn't this one of those chains (like Denny's?) that was sued in some class action lawsuit by Jesse Jackson?

We couldn't possibly consider going to a restaurant that didn't sport The Reverend Jesse Jackasson Seal Of Approval on it, could we?

Jim,

Too bad you won't be in Colorado Springs on June 5th. That is when the big parade will be downtown for the Ft Carson soldiers! There will fly-overs and troop reviews.

What do we need to do to get you out of this?

So I guess the choice will be the Cracker Barrel or Johnson's Corner. I have to call Johnson's in the morning and see if I can reserve the meeting room. The meeting room holds 100.

This way Jim can get right on I-25 afterward and be on his way. It may bring out more Freepers too.

Hi Jim,
I was asked on the phone if you were a Vet and I thought to the best of my aging mind that you were in the Navy. Is that correct?

What? No tour bus? I had visions of this large bus covered with FReeRepublic graphics and flags. LOL!

I will dig out my crusty old U.N. flag to drag on the ground for the FReep. Should be a hoot.

All the Best!

I tried to get the City of Fresno to fund such a tour, but just couldn't quite talk them into it. Would've been a great goodwill tour for the city!

I'll have three Freepers with me and Johnson's Corner sounds great as does the Loveland Cracker Barrel - I have no preference. I just want to know ahead of time.

I won't be at the Freep - we have son's baseball at 9am in Broomfield.

Thanks for arranging this!

Regards,

TS

Here's my $.02...

First, it's a real pleasure anticipating this lunch. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone and especially to meeting Mr. and Mrs. Robinson.

My recommendation is Johnson's Corner. As noted, it's right on I-25 and easy to find; the parking/fueling needs for JimRob's touring bus are vastly and immediately simplified; and they apparently have a meeting room. Sounds just right for us.

Whatever ya'll decide on is ok but try to keep it close for me. The price of gas is so high now, I try not to go anywhere unless I have to. How 'bout Bruce's in Severance? ;0

World famous Rocky Mtn Oysters. Yuck!

Rocky Mountain Oysters!!!!! YUMMY!

Bruces Bar serves something like 60 TONS of Oysters a year. They have a painting on the outside of a steer with his legs crossed, holding a sign that says "Not Fair" or something like that. LOL!

Since Bruce (who owns the place) rents goose blinds to hunters every fall, it is the only place I have ever seen where you can sit at the bar and order lunch and a box of 10 guage shotgun shells. ROTFLMAO!!

This TOUR BUS of yours Jim is turning into quite a little joke. I don't know where I heard that you had a tour bus, but it just cracks me up now when I see a post about it.

fivetoes, meeky, anyone got a graphic or photos of Jim's Tour Bus?

(this could make a really funny thread)

Clear your calendars Memorial Day. Hopefully we will have our plans firmed up before the Saturday FReep and can discuss Mr Robinson's visit here in detail. Blue, can you give us a "heads up" on where we are with reservations, etc?
