All Aboard for the Free Republic Freedom Tour ~ 2004 ~ Rocky Mountain & South Western Division
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!

Have fun, wish that I could go.

You are putting some serious milage on the freepermobile, during the first couple of days.

Stay safe on the road. Does the Freepermobile have direct feed to a doplar radar site to pinpoint tornados?

Sign up for the Holiday Inn Priority Club. Get some bennies. The free newspaper in the morning is worth it. And, easy check-in, check-out is great.

Sure glad you guys are on the road. Will put pins in a large map I just bought.

While I'm not certain which Robinsons are going on this trip, God Speed.

Keep us posted Jim.

Sheila and Chris will be with me. And we are using the Priority Club. We've had pretty good luck finding handicapped rooms and dataports, etc. with Holiday Inn. We've stayed with them whenever we could for the last several of our trips. Will try to post something each morning and evening during our trip.
Thanks,
Jim

Yes, I believe we'll be at the Hacienda Restaurant just next door to the Holiday Inn. Check with Ms. AntiFeminazi by freepmail for the details.

Wouldn't he be shocked when we suddenly appear in the back seats of the Freepermobile.

You would have to bake extra brownies to keep Chads happy on the trip.

You bet ! I figured we should give folks in the areas they're visiting one last
chance to jump on board! :^)

If I had an Oklahoma and Arkansas list I'd have used them, too.

Trteamer has a Colorado list I'm sure he'll be using (if he hasn't already).

Good news. I just checked up on it. I'll probably be back in Austin (well, Buda) by the eighth, so I'll probably be able to make it on the ninth. It'd be great to finally meet you and the people in the HOT chapter.

So disappointed you won't be making it out to Atlanta - maybe a future trip?

Have a blessed and *SAFE* trip - sounds like fun! We'll expect lots of pictures and FReeper reports!
