*This part of the itinerary is not firm yet, and may not happen. Jim is hoping to make the trip to Death Valley the weekend before we have to leave for Colorado Springs. We'll keep everyone updated on this thread.

Jim would like to meet with as many FReepers in our stopover cities as possible. While Jim is in LHC/Mohave County AZ, we plan to take a drive through Oatman and then go to Bullhead City for supper with Mohave County FReepers. Please contact me for details on when and where we'll meet for supper.

For Albuquerque FReepers: Will someone arrange for a place to meet and have supper, and let me know ASAP?

For Colorado Springs FReepers: Will someone take charge and arrange the required permits/etc., so we can do a "Support the Troops" Rally/FReep on Saturday, April 22, and advise me of the details ASAP? We'll be bringing our own signs.

For Cortez CO area FReepers: FReeper trussell is making arrangements for supper and meet-up in Cortez. Please contact her for details.

If you have any questions, please feel free to post them here or FReepmail me.

We are looking forward to meeting a lot of FReepers and having a productive time both at the seminar/workshops and during the "Support the Troops" Rally on April 22. Make your plans now to attend the Rally and plan to have supper with us while we're in your area(s).

In the event that for some reason Jim and Shiela cannot make the trip, I'll be making it, following the itinerary above, representing both FreeRepublic.com and VetsCoR. If Jim and Shiela can't make it, we'll let everyone know on this thread.

Stop by my house for supper. It's only 14 or 1500 miles out of the way but you'd be welcomed.

OK. Why is the trip from Mojave to Death Valley a mile longer than the return trip?

You'll have to direct that question to Jim. I only know about this trip.

Graybeard; we'd love to stop by, but we're limited by time constraints on this trip. Maybe next roadtrip. :)

We stopped in Death Valley for the first time last year. You will likely want to spend a little more time there. You might want to stay in the Park for one night. The colors at various times of day are spectacular and the velvety night is awesome. We are happy that we stayed. We had breakfast at the Furnace Creek Inn, you could add rattlesnake to your omelet for $3.00.

Have an excellent adventure!

I love that Italian restaurant (bar) they have. I went a few years ago with my friend to pick up one of the spotted asses. They had been on a waiting list for four years. I stay in that area a lot during the summer. Katherines Landing and Laughlin, I just can't get enough of that place
