Update: Talked to Lyman and American Furniture was a "landmark" to use in finding the Rally. Apparently it's supposed to be nearby where permission has been granted.
Exact location will be posted in a bit.
Thanks for the update. I couldn't get through to Lyman.
Hi Doug, Hi All,
Thanks for the ping. Sorry for being delinquent earlier this A.M. The thread is beautiful. Inspired work, Doug. Thanks, Rebelbase, for the latest location update on Greensboro. Let me make myself useful and post the remainder of the itinerary here:

For any FReeper who wishes to join the Caravan along the route, please check the MMP website for route and gas stops.
Hey, I'm a bit surprised we don't have a location yet for Richmond, VA? All I can say is, stay tuned....
Latest report from Lyman Stucky in the pace car, The Spirit of Allegiance: Twice today already, strangers/patriots have come up to him and offered to buy gas for his car. Others have made donations to the Caravan along the way.
Check back on this thread for updates. Thanks to everyone for your support for The Rule of Law.
DID Lyman mention anything about our BIG HUG?
GREAT JOB to you and Doug!
GREAT to hear that people are helping Lyman with gas funds!
THANK GOD FOR OUR MINUTEMEN and WOMEN! and THANK YOU FOR keeping us up-to-date!
He did mention the hug and made it clear that the kiss was on the cheek. :) It is a pleasure to help him with some gas. He is doing this for all of us.
DO NOT go to the American Furniture Warehouse on High Point Road.
I suspect the caravan will take a drive down High Point Road around 7:00pm if anyone is interested in seeing them.
Does anyone have a ranch in the area where people can meet?
Why did you pull the thread announcing the rally had been cancelled? There's an irate store manager who is threatening to have people arrested for trespassing and instructions on this website directing people to go to that store.
Bump. Rally Cancelled.
Yes, I specifically asked Lyman about meeting you.
He admitted to a "kiss on the cheek" as Doug said.
I told him you've been doing a lot of cheerleading for the caravan, woo-hoo!!!
"You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss,
a sigh is just a sigh.
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by...
It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by."
"ENFORCEMENT, NOT IMPEACHMENT
I do not condone any illegal or immoral actions while our sworn leaders and lawmakers slumber--and I am NOT in favor of impeaching President Bush--however, Mr. President, I URGE you, Sir to ENFORCE THE LAW you have sworn to uphold! Protect bona fide American Citizens and our Constitution from enemies foreign and domestic, Sir!"
The above statement by Lyman Stucky, owner and driver of the Caravan pace car, is posted on his website: http://www.spiritofallegiance.com/.
My opinion: Reckless talk about impeaching the President does nothing to remedy the problem of the illegal invasion, or to secure the borders. Please do not bring negative attention to our cause and our thread by doing so.
Sounds like some major miscommunication occurred.
Here's hoping things get worked out by the time the Caravan hits town... should be in an hour or so.
Thanks for pinging your peeps. :)
That is such a nice thing to hear about people buying gas. Just shows, if there's a cause people step up to the plate...
It's happening. I tell you man. Coast to coast. From the grassroots up. It is going to take a lot of appeasers and compromisers and phony conservatives down. It is happening. This steam rollin' train is beginning to really ramp up now.

Minutemen Prepare to Rally on Washington, D.C.
Minutemen Remain Last Defense Against Amnesty
Los Angeles, CA - Following successful rallies across the Southwestern
United States and in President Bushs hometown of Crawford, TX, the
Minuteman Caravan is now preparing for its final push through the South
and into Washington, D.C.
The caravan was organized to drive home the point to political leaders
that the American people are fed up with their lack of response to the
most important issue in protecting our nation s sovereignty and to
bring attention to the amnesty bills currently being discussed in
Amnesty for illegal aliens is coming, warned Minuteman Project
Founder Jim Gilchrist, if the politicians have their way. It is only the
Minutemen and concerned Americans across the nation who can still block
such a dangerous policy. The President and Congress are being put on
notice: We will not stand idly by while our laws are violated, our borders
are breached and our sovereignty is threatened.
Details on the event are as follows:
Topic: Rally to Stop the Illegal Alien Guest Worker Amnesty Program
Date: Friday, May 12, 2006
Time: 11:00 AM ? 3:00 PM
Location: Upper Senate Park, Washington D.C.
Also participating will be:
Jerome Corsi, Harvard Ph.D co-author of the #1 New York Times
bestseller Unfit for Command;

Barbara Coe, co-author of Proposition 187 and the President of
California Coalition for Immigration Reform;
John Clark of the American Immigration Control Foundation;
Minuteman group leaders and members from across the country as well as
invited guests from the U.S Congress.
Please see post #27...anyone planning on attending this rally needs to know that it's been cancelled.
