Free Republic ^ | 05/26/04 | Jim Robinson

Posted on 05/26/2004 8:44:17 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Well, we're packing up the FReepermobile and will be ready to hit the road first thing in the morning. Haven't settled on the complete detailed intenerary yet, but here's what we've booked so far:

Depart Fresno, Thursday morning, May 27. Stay overnight somewhere near the mid point between Fresno and Ft Collins Thursday night. Probably Cedar City or Beaver, UT.

Arrive Ft Collins, CO, Friday night, May 28. Have booked a room at the University Park Holiday Inn. Will join the Colorado FReepers for their Saturday Support Our Troops Rally and a dinner at Johnson's Corner following.

Depart Ft Collins Saturday afternoon enroute to Missouri. Will probably stay overnight in Burlington, CO, or somewhere in Kansas if we get that far before it gets too late.

Arrive Columbia, MO, Sunday night, May 30. Have booked a room at the Executive Center Columbia Mall Holiday Inn for Sunday and Monday nights. Will enjoy the Memorial Day Parade with the Columbia, Mo FReepers and a dinner afterwards.

Will stay Tuesday night, June 1st, in St Louis. Haven't settled on a location yet. Chime in St Louis FReepers.

Will arrive Little Rock, Arkansas, Wed, June 2nd. Have booked a room at the Downtown Presidential Center Holiday Inn (I understand this is President Clinton's hotel. LOL). Will enjoy wearing some of my FReeper t-shirts through their lobby. We hope to get our pictures in front of the Clinton Presidential Library and perhaps do a little FReeping with the Hog Wild FReepers and then enjoy some southern hospitality Arkansas style at the Whole Hog Cafe. Will stay Wednesday and Thursday nights in Little Rock.

Will stay somewhere near Tecumseh, OK, Friday night. Have a Morton Family Reunion in Tecumseh Saturday. Saturday and Sunday nights will be in Ft Smith, AR, visiting with family.

Arrive Frisco, TX, Monday night June 7th. We're booked two nights at the Holiday Inn in Frisco. Will meet with the Dallas area FReepers for dinner Tuesday night.

Arrive Austin, TX, Wednesday night, June 9th. We're booked two nights at the Austin Town Lake Holiday Inn. Will enjoy a pot-luck dinner and FReep meet at Basil's house with the Austin "Heart of Texas Chapter" FReepers on Thursday, the 10th of June.

Arrive Houston, TX, Friday night, June 11th. We're booked at the Greenway Plaza Holiday Inn. Will enjoy a dinner and meeting with the Houston Area Texans on Saturday, the 12th of June.

After Houston, we hope to stay a couple nights at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio, visiting with the San Antonio area FReepers and hopefully meeting the Texas Termite, baby Logan and family. Then our home trip commences.

On the way home, we hope to stay a couple nights at the Holiday Inn in Las Cruces, New Mexico.

We'll have dinner in Phoenix as we pass through and will possibly stay overnight there.

The last overnight stay on our trip will be at Lake Havasu City, AZ, where we'll meet with the local FReepers and tour the world headquarters of VetsCoR (Veterans for Constitutional Restoration).

Looking forward to a great trip and seeing old friends again and meeting lots of new ones!

We will miss you--but you will have lots of fun with the Dallas group. Please tell all my old friends there Hi! for me.

Sounds like that's an interesting meeting you are attending. I'd like to hear more about it.

Well, since you asked :)
The University offers a distance education/ short semester Masters of Arts in Bioethics. 3 hours of credit are offered in conjunction with the CMDA National Convention each year. Then there are 10 days in Illinois at the National Bioethics Conference run by the Center for Bioethics and Human Dignity. The instructors are some of the best ethicists in the US. Francis Beckwith is one of the advisors and J Budziszewski is one of the lecturers in July.

Alligators may not be kept in bathtubs.


Well just where is a normal person supposed to keep his alligator then?

I had the pleasure shaking your hand on January 20,2001 at The Count The Silverware affair in D.C. The Houston Freepers led by Flyer are the greatest.


I am honored to know them, and we are all looking forward to our get together in West University , one of the most conservative (except for the trial lawyers) areas in America.

But what about those of us who don't have a crick? Are we to be denied the "right" to own an alligator?

You wanna talk about your guard dog. Imagine breaking into an abode(W/O a crick) and staring down the business end of a 12 foot alligator! That'll make a person reconsider their career choice.

Howdy everyone from beautiful Cedar City Utah!! We've just had a late supper and are now settling into our room. Off to a bit later of a start this morning than I was hoping for, but we're here. Tomorrow it's off for Ft Collins.

Right now we have 30 confirmed NTX Freepers coming to meet Jim! If you want to join us, please freepmail MAF so I can make sure we have plenty of room for all and send final notice of time and location. We may need to move to a bigger place.

Howdy everyone! Checking in from Colby, Kansas. We had a great time FReeping in Ft Collins today and had a great lunch! The very enthusiastic support displayed by the passing motorists was really heartwarming. Will be heading out to Columbia, MO, in the morning.

Howdy everyone,

Checking in from Columbia, Missouri. We're settled into our room and just had dinner with BluesageWoman and Dogrobber. Great people! We're looking forward to the activities tomorrow.

No bad weather on the way out. The storms were all way out in front of us and moving the same direction. We had clear sailing all the way.

We're hoping to stay at the Menger Hotel in San Antonio on Saturday and Sunday nights the 12th and 13th of June. We're hoping to meet the Texas Termite and family while we're there, but haven't heard if anyone else has made any plans for a get together. We're pretty open.

Man! Y'all are coverin' some ground!

Give Bluesage Woman a big hug for me!
She's a fine lady! And she likes Don Williams!

I don't know Dogrobber, but give her/him a hug, anyway!
If they're FReepers, they've got to be good people!

Y'all take care and be careful!

Dudley, the Termite, his mommy and grandmommy and myself will be at the Meneger Hotel on Sunday at noon to visit with Jim and his entourage.
If y'all can join us we'd sure like that!

I could meet you in the coffee shop about 11:30 and wait for everyone else to go to Jim's room.

I'll be the young, good looking, muscular guy............oh, you said your husband is coming...
Oh, well. I'll be the tall, old guy with a pot gut and a Western hat.

In Houston area and especially here in Brazosport, south of Houston on the coast, we have the occasional alligator who strays into our yards! But they are "endangered" species..... Seems to me that THEY do the endangering, you know, cats, dogs, elderly ladies, small children....
